I have RA, Fibromyalgia, Raynauds Disease, IBS and lactose intolerant. Was diagnosed at age 38 am now 40. Still battling with joint pain, but after taking methotrexate for 11 months I developed severe folliculitis on my legs and arms. I stopped taking mtx for 3 wks and my issue was starting to get better. Am now on injectable mtx for last 2 wks and legs are looking terrible.

Sammy, I'm a white 45 male; just wanted to agree on that Klonopin remark. When I was 21 I had my second kidney transplant which was a BAD issue all together, at any rate the hospital did not include my medications taken at home after my surgery. I went thru the worst hallucinations and jerking and seizures you could ever possibly imagine. This went on for almost 3 1/2 weeks before we decided to have me taken OUT of the hospital and relocated before they ended up taking my life. Then the whole staff of paychology including the chief of psychiatry cane in my room to see what they could do, Finallu. During one of my few moments of clarity the C.O.F after blaming me if talking "drugs" prior to my transplant listened to my word of telling him the meds I was on before being admitted. After asking when was the last time I had received my Klonopin and me not knowing, he then reviewed the charts, and didn't see me receiving this med once. He stormed out of the room of about 9 docs and came back in with two Klonopin; for the first time in almost 4 weeks and after three surgeries the first 72 hours I was hospitalized, I was sleeping like a baby, for about 49 hours with NO MORE hallucinations, or seizures or jerking! I finally got out of there without a kidney since that kidney was supposed to go to another man named the same as I in a different city! I do take Xanax and probably always will. The half life on Klonopin is much different hence one if its dangers, Nevwr Ever stop this drug cold! I've been on dialysis 25 1/2 years now and suffered from intense skin cancers, but have fought and done all I can do to live a normal as possible life, working full time except when I'm in yet another surgery, over 32 general anesthetic procedures since 1987. I was the youngest boy-man to ever be on the USA soccer team ready to play in the Korea 1988 Olympics. What a change in life.....
All the Best,

i have been taking clonzepam and trazedone and my speech is a very hoarse voice, I am wondering if if my speech problem is from these drugs's side effects.
TwoDimes on Apr, 15, 2012:
Upon occasion, I, too, have become hoarse and from the use of Klonopin. I was VERY hoarse when I tried to cold turkey off of 4mgs of Klonopin. I am now down to 1.5mgs per day and, still, (as I said, upon occasion, I become hoarse. I am sure that the use of Klonopin is the causative factor. - TwoDimes -

Omigosh, never cold turkey clonopin, esp that high of a dose. My dad had a major seizure and hallucinations doing so.

I suffer from Hypothyroidism, High Cholesterol & Cancer survivor because of Zyprexa use and previously being prescribed Carbamezapine causing Thyroid damage. My best advice to you if you don't want Hypothyroidism is have regular blood tests, Thyroid damage can be undetected for up to 5 years with no symptoms found on regular blood tests prematurally. Make sure you buy iodised salt to use on food when eating this will help reduce your risk of getting Hypothyroidism. two signs of Hypothyriodism which the Carbamezapine & Zyprexa medication boxes labels wont tell you is if your face becomes puffed up, red or sun sensitive while taking these medications this is a sign of Hypothyroidism. It wont be found on your blood test but later on it could appear out of the blue. The other sign to look for is baldness or hair loss on your head, this is another symptom. I hope these comments will help you. You have to weight up the benefits and negatives taking medications if you decide to take these medicines or not. It depends on how you cope with the drug side effects.

I have been on Crestor 5mg for about four years and about two years ago I started having muscle cramping and twitching. My calves would look like they had something living under my skin, this made it really tough to sleep. After being put on a drug for stress it only made things worse, I started waking up in a wierd haze. I was also taking finasteride (Propecia) 1 mg, but the doctor said it could not be causing the problem. I stopped the relaxents and it finally went away a few weeks later. Some months after this I stopped taking Crestor for about two months to see if my Cholesterol would go up and unfortunantly it did so I went back on it about 8 months ago.
I have started the cramping and twitching again but his time it also effected my forearms and hands, to a point that I could hardly function, walking was a chore and my arms felt lathargic and slow to react. I stopped the Finasteride AND the Crestor and after reading some of the article on this site, I am fairly sure that one or both drugs are causing the problem. I have been fighting it, this time, for about a month now and while it has gotten better I still have bad days. I am hoping that if I contiue to excerise by walking it will improve. I can only hope that discontinuing the drugs that my cramping and twitching will go away.
Looking back at it I can remember many times after doing hard work my body would cramp very easily and thought it was just dehydration but now I think it was do to the Crestor and?or the Finasteride(Propecia).

How soon did your cholestral go back up when you stopped crestor and how soon did the muscle weakness in your legs stop after taking crestor.
