Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Can i take a steroid while taking xarelto (1 answer)
I took prednisone for constant cough. had 3rd surgery on back one year ago. Had to patch spinal cord. Got blood clots. Had pulmonary embolism. Now have severe bronchitis. I know the prednisone will take care of cough, but what else?
- Did chantix cause hearing loss for you? (1 answer)
After taking Chantix for about 5 weeks, I experienced a loud ringing in my right ear and suddenly lost about 50% hearing in that ear. The ringing and hearing loss did not go away. It has been two weeks since it started. The Chantix warning mentions hearing loss at the very end of "Other" side effects and I did not see this prior to taking Chantix, nor did my doctor mention it. I also had thyroid tests showing borderline problems (I've never had any issues with my thyroid before). I've also gained weight.
- Has anyone developed episcleritis or extreme blood shot eye
I have been taking chantiix for 15 weeks and one of my eyes are extremely blood shot eye doctor says its episcleritis being going on for 12weeks and terrible headaches
- Restless legs syndrome with chantix
just began chantix and have jerking in my legs at night when i lay down to sleep
- How long did the side effects from chantix last?
I took Chantix for 6 days. Around day 4 I started slurring and became a little disoriented.I didnt think anything of it at first but when it got worse I decided to call my doctor. I have been off if it for about a full week now. Im happy to say the slurring stopped but I feel a slight numbness in my right arm. I cant use my hand fully when it comes to typing, texting, writing, and even things like putting makeup on have become difficult. I feel like my hand wont do or go where I want it to. How long is this going to last?

- Cfs/fibro, migraine
A strange thing happened when I started taking the Chantix for my smoking cessation...
MY MIGRAINES AND TENSION HEADACHES WENT AWAY!!!
As horrible as they were, and as bad as I have prayed for them to go away, I did not even notice that I didn't have the excruciating headaches anymore!!
I stopped taking the chantix and the headaches gradually came back but it took me awhile to make this correlation. Once I did, I started taking the chantix again. it started working immediately... taking the migraines and neck pain away again! Now, I can take 1/2 of a pill every other day and that seems to keep the migraines away! There are side effects and I don't know if it would work for everyone but it sure worked for me!
- Really works to quit smoking
Works great for quitting smoking! The first few weeks you dream in technicolor just like an anti depressant but then that goes away. The only side effect I had was constipation but it was a small price to pay for quitting after 37 years a smoker! I tried hypnotism, patches, etc. but this really worked. I've been smoke free for 9 months now.
