- 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.
- The effect of magnesium citrate on coumadin
the combination of coumadin and magnesium citrate guarantees too low INR
- Lorazepam nearly killed me during cancer treatment
Day 31 of cold turkey and I want to die. It is a roller coaster from body tics and sweats to rage and crying in one day. I felt so good the 4h day of c/t. It was like before my cancer diagnosis. My bowels are better off Lorazepam. I threw up during bowel movements from the pain. Off Lorazepam first normal bowel movement in over 2 years. Stomach so damaged by Lorazepam that I have absolutely no appetite. I force myself to eat. Neuropathy in hands nearly gone. Feet are better but slower. Lymphedema that appeared after one year on Lorazepam is now gone. I have full range of motion.

Comments from related studies:
From this study (7 hours ago):
My mother has moderate to severe A - Fib and suffered a TIA two years ago, at which point she began a regimen of Coumadin. She was on no other drugs at the time other than maybe Thyroid med.
After many month on Warfarin, she switched to another blood thinner, Eliquis, which made her feel very depressed. She resumed the Warfarin and developed very annoying double vision, which appears to be correctable with prismatic lenses in her glasses. She is 91 and I asked her if the double vision was corrected if she covered one eye; she seemed to concur, so I infer she has monocular diplopia. Currently she is only taking a baby aspirin daily.
Questions: How likely is it that the Warfarin/Coumadin caused the diplopia?
Is this side effect permanent?
From this study (11 hours ago):
Muscle weakness from knee downwards
