Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Among those having had a previous tia or stroke; what percentage had another such incident while take uloric?
    Have written more details just a few minutes ago. Wasn't sure I made my question clear.
  • How many/what percentage of older males who have had a stroke, have another while taking uloric?
    Concerned as my Rheumatologist wants me to start using Uloric40 mg and while I see that their is a relatively small incidence of stroke occurring (unless you are part of the "small" group); I have been unable to locate statistics for those previous stroke patients that are now using or have used Uloric, and had another stroke.
  • What side effects do you experience from sulpfasalazine? (3 answers)
    I began taking sulfasalazine 5 days ago for Rheumatoid arthritis. Since then I've had stomach cramps and bloating. Has anyone else experienced these side effects? If so, did the symptoms go away after using taking the meds for a while? And did the meds help the RA symptoms?
  • Can biotin 5000mg cause a mass on your breast
    I started taken the biotin 5000mg 2 days ago and now I have a lump on my left breast
  • Biotin and heart races? connection?
    About 2 weeks ago I started on 3mg of Biotin a day. After about 4 days my heart started racing for period. It was uncomfortable and distracting. It's been nearly 2 weeks now and it's settled some but in the evening it comes back. Occassionaly during the day. Maybe at night I just notice it more but I don't think I notice it during the day, possible a little but at night it escalates. Is it possible that Biotin can cause damage. Why hasn't it gone away after near 2 weeks? I had no racing before starting Biotin. I've had a regularly scheduled checked about 4 days after stopping taking the Biotin. I didn't mention anything to the doc but he noticed nothing about my heartbeat or deep breathing. It's distracts and I wish it would subside! Any clues here? Thanks, jack

  • Why has my bloodpresher now shot up
    My blood pressure was always low 120/68 now since being treated for rheumatoid arthritis it has shot up to 175/92
  • Had nms in 2005, will trileptal increase chance of recurrence?
    In 2005 I had NMS, which was not detected by my drs for 4 months. I'd been on Lexapro & Seroquel for 2 yrs, but was weaned from Lexapro & placed on Lamictal 3/05. Began getting low-grade fevers, which I was told were not caused by the Lamictal. I quit taking it anyway, fevers (along with uncontrollable shivering) continued & got higher. By 5/05 my temps were reaching 105 deg F. Husband said I became combative, refused to go to hospital. Early June/05 he came home to find me wrapped in blankets, with a temp over 105 F. He tried to place me in a tub of cold water, said I was rigid & screamed when he tried to move me. I was in the tub, speaking "in tongues" (his description, I have no memory of this). He called 911, took me to hospital. I woke, no idea where I was or why. After a lumbar puncture & 2 days in ICU I went home. The fevers continued...2 weeks later he came home to find me wrapped in sheets, towels, blankets, with the heat on full (it was in the 90's outside) he called ambulance again. I awoke to find myself under an ice blanket with nurses pushing large vials of dantrolene into both arms, several liters. Another LP, a stint in ICU...this time they told me it was NMS. The dr who dxd me said he was surprised I was alive, & not a vegetable, as my temp had peaked at 109 deg F. I suffered brain damage; short-term memory loss, brain can't control my body temp, my blood pressure went up. An arteriogram showed completely healthy heart & arteries, no plaque at all. I lost all body fat as well as some muscle mass. The fevers continued even after stopping the Seroquel. I visited my PCP for a checkup in 9/05, temp was normal. I started shuddering, my temp went up a full degree every 5 minutes. PCP admitted me to ER, my heart rate was over 272 B/M; they stopped my heart 3 times to "reset" it, which didn't work. I spent 3 days in hospital. Several months later my P doc tried me on Lamictal alone; I got Stevens-Johnson syndrome. I stopped the drug as soon as the signs appeared. I've been untreated, except for Neurontin & Primidone, until my manic episodes became unlivable. 3 weeks ago I went 8 days with no sleep, became psychotic. My P doc gave me Trileptal, which has evened my moods, but I've been getting low-grade fevers (highest was 103.6). Would having had NMS in the past make me more prone to falling to it again with the Trileptal? It's the only new med I've taken in over a year.
  • Sulfasalazine and the never ending menstrual cycle
    I started this drug and never had menstrual problems begore. Within 3 months, I started my period and it never stopped even with stopping the drug for 3 mon ths. I ended up going my gyne and he prescribed megace. I had been bleeding for a total of 6 months. Made an appt with my rhuemy and explained this situation. His words were "it hasn't been listed in the literature as a side effect". Keep taking it. I started it again. Same situation and same treatment. Never took it again and changed rheumy.
  • Vasculitis from enbrel
    I have deep scars on my legs from vasculitis. This was caused by Enbrel. Initially no one would connect the two: per my rheumatologist 'no one has ever reported vasculitis as a side effect of enbrel.' (2003)

    I had to suspend the enbrel for 8 weeks in preparation for complex abdominal surgery. The vasculitis started to heal. Several weeks after the surgery I resumed enbrel and the vasculitis returned by the second or third enbrel shot. The Dr was reluctantly willing to concede that 'it may have been the enbrel.'

    The vasculitis was horrific. I've never felt so much pain, pain that wasn't abated in the least by pain medicine. My dermatologist describe it as being equivalent to a third degree burn: the skin dies, nerves start to regenerate but aren't protected by the dermis.

    The scars look like I had flesh torn from my legs that didn't quite 'fill in.'

    Rheumatologists are too pushy about these biological medicines. They brush past even the most serious side effects. Anything for mobility... I'd prefer not to skip to dialysis sessions or treatment for other organ failure!
  • Spiriva caused me to swell up like a hippo.
    My Doctor prescribed spiriva to help me breathe due to asthma/cold. I never smoked but my parents and friends were heavy smokers. I used the spiriva 3 times. Once a day for 3 days then I started swelling in my ankles and the swelling continued until my face, hands arms... basically I was so swollen I gained 29 pounds in two days. My doctor put me on lasix and potassium for several weeks. I quit using the spiriva when my other doctor asked if I was on any new meds. Spiriva was the only new medicine. When I stopped using it the swelling went away.

  • *I have noticed breakage of hair.Trying to use coconut and olive oil for hair.Not used on scalp.

    *I first noticed thinning after using selenium face wash.I was told I could use it on my scalp. But I looked online and saw that it could cause hairloss. I quit using it after a few tries on my face only.

    *I dont know what to do or try. I've been told to try Nioxin , I see on the label that it has sulfates and that isnt supposed to be good on the hair.

    *I dont want to try Rogaine if it has to be maintained or lose the hair you have when there might be something that wont cause hairloss if I stop using it.But if that is the only choice....I would .

    I have heard Viviscal might be good? I've read Revita might be good. I just don't know ! Please help...:(
