  • What's the best home remedy for jaundice?
    I started out thinking that I had pancreatitis, had all the symptoms, abdominal pain that went all the way thru to the back & inability to digest food (chronic indigestion). I read about keeping the bodys pH better balanced, bought pH test strips (urine) & found I was very acidic. I began eating more alkaline foods, alkalizing my water, and avoiding really acidic foods. Stopped taking my acid reducers because they actually KEPT me more acidic. I noticed that when my body's pH was up (alkaline) the pain was tolerable but when it began to drop (acid) the pain kicked up again. My doctors say they don't necessarily think it's pancreatitis because the ultrasound doesn't show inflammation & my blood test numbers are only slightly elevated. My liver enzymes are also slightly elevated. The doctors don't Seem very concerned. Today, for the first time in 2 months since this whole thing started I noticed I'm jaundiced. What the heck is this?
  • Does anyone else have trouble getting to sleep since beginning to take brilinta? (1 answer)
    Am trying to figure out just why, since stent insertion, I have developed insomnia which keeps me from getting to sleep at night. Brilinta is the only new drug I am taking.I am very sleepy, falling asleep in my chair while watching TV, but wide awake when I go to bed and staying awake until two or three in the morning. I do not nap during the day and am pretty active with cardio rehab and walking the dogs three times a day.
  • Can i take pepcid complete with keflex
    Keflex is giving me an upset stomach. Can I take pepcid complete to help or is it contradicted with Keflex?
  • Should a patient with myelodysplasia take brilinta?
    Just had a stent put in August 2013. Have had MDS for 9 years, stablized and requiring no meds. Just low anemia affecting the red blood cells. But recent tests are showing the good counts declining. Next test will deter if a fluke or a trend. Appears Brilinta was not tested on people with such conditions, although we didn't know that at the time.
  • Could brilinta cause a neuromuscular disease
    Muscle, nerve pain with weakness and numbness of hands and feet with tingling.

  • Sodium phosphate sensitivity - chlortrimaton helps
    When I eat meat or any product with Sodium Phosphate in it, either in one large dose or cumulatively I get all of these symptoms. It gets worse if I eat it in consecutive meals and/or days. Taking Chlortrimaton eases the symptoms. The Doctor says this is not an allergy but is a sensitivity to Sodium Phosphate. There are other meat tenderizers and preservatives that have one or more of the symptoms listed but I have not been able to identify them.
  • Farxiga ? problems, stomach, smell, taste
    I have been on Farxiga for 2 months. First, I was on Farxiga 5mg, About 6 weeks ago changed to 10 mg, about same time I noticed my coffee smelled different and bad, kept on a week and asked my wife. Changed coffee brand twice. It got worse, began to taste it. For the last week I can smell it in my food, anything fresh out of microwave. Now I smell it in my bowel movement. I called Doctor earlier in week reported. He wants to wait about a week and call back if persists. I am a diabetic and first few days this helped. Doctor reduced my insulin and got me off glimepiride and my Sugar readings have been higher since such as 175-200. This is my only medicine change close to time period. Please respond with help or if you experience similar problems.
  • Why was this drug not tested for people with anemia problems?
    My husband has had myelodysplastic syndrome diagnosed in 2004. In 2010, his HGB went down to 10.2. RBC 3.00. He was right next to treatment when the HGB went to 10. For some unknown reason, his blood counts improved. By June 2013, his HGB was 11.9, RBC 33.9 8/3/13 he was found to have a 75% blockage of his LAD and a stent was implanted. Brilinta was started. 11/7/13 his HGB dropped to 10.7; RBC 31.9. 1/9/14 his HGB dropped to 10.3; RBC to 2.98, the lowest ever recorded for him. Through all of this, his platelets have remained relatively stable, 234 - 222. We checked with all our docs about whether Brilinta was safe for him. There is absolutely nothing in any information relative to the effect Brilinta would have for anyone with some kind of anemia problem! How can that be when this is a drug manipulating the blood??? We are checking for any other cause for this drop in his blood, including any internal bleeding. But he shows no sign for any of these. We will have one more blood test in March. If it is negative again, a bone marrow biopsy will be done to make sure it is not the MDS becoming active again. But why was there no testing done for people with anemia problems? Why have I had to go through all this research trying to find the answers? The FDA is now doing some postmarketing research on Brilinta for reports of pancytopenia, neutropenia, thrombocytopenia and more. I have also talked with Brilinta's people twice now, but they have nothing to say that will address this issue. Why not??
