- Alevert d-12 long term side effects
I took Alevert D-12 approximately 4-6 days every week for 5-7 years.
I know have bad aches pains in my bones, joints and can't sleep well cause I wake up several times a night. I don't have true REM during sleep so I feel tired but can't sleep. When I get off the Alevert for a week i'm able to sleep normally. However I've gotten off for a week's time lately and the aches and pains due to bone/joint inflamation type feeling gets worse. I'm going to try to get off it for extended lenght of time see if the bone/joint aches go away. I'll provide feedback in the near future. I ask the editor of this page to please stay in touch with me via email so I can correspond with continued results and progress. Thank you all for posting and sharing your experiences! This is truelly helpful to everyone.
- Not a great experience
I was on norvasc for two months and had to go off because of severe swelling of feet and legs. Also rapid heart beat and very profuse sweating. it was horrible. It also raised my blood pressure. after going off BP dropped by @least 10 points both diastolic and systolic.
- Celebrex is absolutely terrible (1 response)
I got a three-day trial pack from my doctor on July 12. On July 13, I got my period, which lasted eight days and was extremely heavy and painful (and I usually have to switch out super-plus tampons and an overnight pad every 6-7 hours, so heavier than that is impressive). No pain relief for my hips/knees/back.
I finally got insurance sorted out a week and a half later and started my 30-day supply. I got my period (again! And once more heavy and painful!) on July 30, and am currently on day 8. No sign of it slowing or stopping. Still no pain relief, and it's been close to two weeks. I can't take my Tramadol or ibuprofen, and all I'm getting out of the Celebrex is weight gain, worsening depression, and period problems.
If there was a rating system on this site, Celebrex would get as close to negative points as it would allow.
- Who cares about the patient? (1 response)
I can't believe I'm still alive but quality of life is greatly diminished and no one cares. Not one doctor cares about how this one dr. prescribed all these drugs over a period of 5 years and I lost everything. I flat-lined sept 18, 2005 and was told by dr there in er that I would live 1-5 years and I had just lost my job as letter-carrier of over 17 years and my daughter was killed in dec of 2000, which I will always feel great responsibility because I knew I should have called her, it would have saved her life as she was killed in the firdale village apt fire and she didn't live there, she lived with me she was only 20 years old. So this crappy dr steven a creelman of seattle just kept throwing pills at me, telling me there was nothing wrong with any of the pills just me. I feared dr's and still do, I know they are just people and most people are good and caring but a lot are not. The Celebrex started after I was hit by a truck on the job in march of 2000. I will admit it relieved some pain but I had side affects immediately, within days to weeks. I was told by the crappy dr to shut up and take them as he originally told me they were not anti-inflamatorys but a new drug that did not upset stomach but they did. I felt trapped because it was an L&I and I didn't want to lose my job and so healthy and strong figured w/PT and rest I could overcome the accident pain which was lower back and neck well I couldn't sleep from pain and stomach but I couldn't tell crappy dr it would do no good. My daughter was killed Christmas night and that's a very hard one. I went back to work because my job was most of my life and I had friends at work. I continued to have more problems from Celebrex and I thought my stomach was on fire, it was blood clots that broke lose and I had to have an operation on my small instestine and what was worse is creelman, the crappy dr, when he told me it was an emergency umbililical hernia I told him I was going to get papers from owcp DOL as I would be off work at least 6 weeks. He said NO!!!!!!!!!! He closed the door and told me no, no I won't say it's from Celebrex when He really did know it was. I had an endoscopy 6 months later and that specialist said no more Celebrex. After that operation I just never felt good again I was swelling up my legs etc and fatique all kinds of not feeling good things and I was pissed at the crappy dr who by the said to me that no other dr would diagnose any different or believe me. So, it was in July of 04 and I was so sick I just went in there andhe was on vaction so another dr ran a bunch of blood tests for hiv which I told her was impossible and lupus and a few other things but no one there looked at any of the drugs except the pain medication which ironically was one of the only ones that didn't contribute to dvt & PE. when creelman got back I was still so sick I had left work and said I would be back in 2 weeks after I had some PT and rest. I couldn't sleep. That's when he prescribed REMERON. It was for sleep which it did help but I gained 50 lbs and within a couple months acquired tonsillitis, bhroinchitis, pneumonia, Phlebitis and a dvt which instead of referring me to a specialist he just presibed me an anti-inflammatory and another anti-depressant plus all the drugs He gave tons of samples which were never in noted in my files. I think he should have to pay me MONEY!! I have none since I have no job and I feel so terrible I wish I could just have my job back. And my Daughter but my health has been a Hematologist and injectable blood thinners. I hate the state of wash medical care about doctors but not the patients and I have no money to sue and it has been my experience not to mention crappy doctor SO WHO DO THE PATIENTS THAT ARE BADLY AFFECTED BY CRAPPY DCTORS GO TO? Oh I also couldn't be in the class-action suit because I didn't flat-line from heart attack. REALLY?
- Celebrex and taste loss
Following foot surgery, I have taken Celebrex for most of the last 4 months. I can no longer taste or smell. I just started a Z pack for a sinus problem and am hoping that will clear any infection that could be contributing to this loss. I have also stopped taking Celebrex in the meantime.

Kevin Peters Ph.d on Mar, 4, 2013:
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 -
