I am a 29yr old female n my gyno told me about Provella probiotic, so I took it for 28 days n developed a massive infection. The ER doc said it was because it changed my Flora too fast or I could have immune health probs (autoimmune). I wish gyno would have warned me n have had problems since. Make sure u check side effects n interactions. Wish I did, had to have surgery, laproscopy n cystscopy bc I was still having severe pains n female organ region. Docs r suppose to make u better not worse, Becareful b 4 taking any new drug!

Malorone is expensive, but safe. - even in Sunlight, with the least amount of side effects of any other anti Malaria - CDC has complete info and flow chart to help you chose - I have never had a problem with Malorone and travel to east Africa often.
Diana Folkerts on May, 29, 2010:
I am taking Metoprolol ER 25mg daily and want to travel to malaria countries such as Burma, Vietnam and East Africa (mission work and adventure travel). Can I take any anti-malarial with the Metoprolol? One doctor told me I could take doxycycline 500mg but it would make me sun-sensitive. Could I safely take malarone?
From this study (1 year ago):
I have been prescribed the lansoprazole for reflux but think it may be causing my otherwise undiagnosed dizziness.I have missed a couple of days but the reflux has become very severe. At the time I missed the lansoprazole i was prescribed the prochlorperazine maleate ( not 1 month as shown above ).
My concerns are that some of this is causing weight gain, i have started a healthy eating plan but the weight is piling on. And also that some of these may react with each other or be counter productive.
From this study (2 years ago):
I have a history of drug and alcohol abuse. I also have been treated and misdiagnosed for depression, bi-polar, and apparently ADHD. The older I get the worse I get. The more I try and figure out what is wrong with me the more confused I become. I am very sensitive and I have overactive nerves. The biggest point I would like to stress (since I am so far beyond being pissed off about being judged as an addict) is that I have stopped taking drugs and alcohol in the past for as long as 18 months only to find myself severely depressed (unable to get out of bed) and worse than ever. I've learned over the years that for the most part only people that have the same kind of problems as me can even come close to understanding. I stopped blaming myself a long time ago, and can't stress enough the fact that the only reason I started to self-medicate in the first place was because I never felt comfortable in my own skin, and I just wanted to feel "normal". I have seen so many doctors and shrinks over the years, only to be misdiagnosed, stereo-typed, misguided and generally mistreated. My psychological issues were apparent way before I was even old enough to get drugs, or drink alcohol. Therefore, after years of finding nothing but wrong answers I began to diagnose and medicate myself which inevitably led to substance abuse. However, to this day I have had ten times more success trying to "fix" my own problems than I have ever had with a "professional". I am educated, and most people think I am the coolest guy in town, so to speak, but if they only knew about the darker side of me I would be destroyed. I DON'T WANT TO DIE. I am going to be a dad in about six weeks, and I recently got engaged. As far as that part of my life goes I couldn't be happier. However I do feel like I am running out of time and options.
Brian on Jan, 2, 2011:
people have deeply rooted needs. you probably are the coolest guy in town maybe just be ok. you are not the only person to be sensative privately while mantaining publicly. Just be kind to your self and you will be fine.
Peg on Jan, 20, 2011:
Take it easy on yourself. I am the mother of two and raising a grandchild, all have had issues. Now that everyone has been diagnosed properly and on the appropriate meds, I've never seen such an abundance of happiness. Be kind to yourself, and don't accept everyone's opinion for fact. After all they haven't walked a mile in your shoes. Two of my kids were diagnosed with bi-polar disorder and both or on Abilify. No more anger, no more depression, no more moodiness or feelings of low self worth. Both of their lives have changed dramatically, and are nothing but pure joy to be around. Nobody likes a label, so don't give yourself one. Relax and smile, life is too short to stress over.
