Now found out I have incompetent vein in leg which may be part of the problem had cystocopy and found cysts in kidney, then developed hypertension but no one will diagnose the pain. Now decided it is the same as diabetic neuropathy but as gp and consultant point out I am a long way from being diabetic with perfect blood glucose so thinks it's just guessing and hope

- Do i need to quit drinking coffee while i take thrive?
I take Cymbalta for pain relief from Arthritis and now on Metformin due to Diabetes 2 probably from lack of exercise because of the Arthritis pain. I am 70 years old and just started taking Thrive. I drink coffee a cup of coffee in the morning each day. Do I need to stop that habit?
Are there other "oldies" out there taking Thrive? Please tell me your results with it. Thanks
- I take klonopin and diltiazem (calcium channel blocker blood pressure medicine) and am concerned about side effects. my accupuncturist recommends the ashwagandha. anyone have any issues with this?
I take these prescription medications but have been going to an accupuncturist since 2012. I have trouble sleeping at night without my clonazepam and take naps during the day and am having trouble losing weight. She thinks that my adrenal glands may be fatigued and told me to try something called Adrenal Response which contains Sensoril Ashwagandha. When I looked up Ashwaganda it said that it could interact with the Clonazepam or Klonopin and also with High blood pressure medication. I am a little concerned. I mentioned this to her and she said they both are metabolized by the liver and it should be ok to take it, just to take it an hour or more after I take the Clonazepam. Has anyone had any issues with interactions with their prescribed meds while taking Ashwagandha? I don't want to have to monitor my blood pressure because my blood pressure medication works good for me. Any help would be appreciated because I want to try it but I am a little scared too. Thanks, Crystal

- Terrible excessive sweating from hydrochlorothiazide
I guess I fit the profile of who gets excessive sweating from HCTZ. I am a 65 year old female and suffered from excessive sweating for two years. With just very little exertion, I would pour sweat from the top of my head. It would run into my face and all over my hair. My hair would be ringing wet. I had heavy perspiration in the groin area and down my back also. I had to change clothing 2-3 times a day and wash up or shower that many times also. The doctor tried changing my Cymbalta and put me on Wellbutrin instead. It did absolutely no good. I went off the wellbutrin and back onto the Cymbalta. I did some research and saw that HCTZ could cause excessive sweating. Both my doctor and my pharmacist said that they had never heard of that. I went off the HCTZ, and my sweating stopped almost immediately. My doctor and my pharmacist were very surprised. I'm one of those people who frequently have different reactions to drugs than are typical. If you're having excessive perspiration and are on HCTZ, try going off of it. It just may be the culprit!
- Cymbalta side effects
Starting Cymbalta, side effects were dizzy,felt drugged. Helped with Arthritis pain. About six weeks after i started i developed rectal bleeding.Doctor had me stop Cymbalta and use Tramadol as needed for withdrawal.
- Cardio version caused fingernail abnormalities
Right hip fracture. When prepping for surgery AFIB was found. Surgery was cancelled and they attempted to get AFIB under control. Finally, cardioversion was performed. When my nails started to grow out they all had two horizontal lines that cause the nail to break when it grows out to that point.
- Numbness between toes
This summer I flip flops, with the strap between my toes, almost exclusively. When I switched this fall to regular shoes I noticed a strange, numb sensation between my big toe and second toe. At first I thought it had something to do with the flip flops and thought it would go away. It has been a few weeks now and this has not gone away, and if anything seems to cover a larger area. Oddly enough I mentioned this to a friend today and she says she has the same thing, between her second and third toe...both of us on our right feet. She is also on an antidepressant but couldn't remember which one, but we thought this was an odd coincidence. She explained it as sort of a sensation that there is a hole in your sock or shoe...and that made sense to me...there is still some sensation in the area but it is an odd feeling...something isn't quite right. I am doing some online research right now to try to figure out if this is common with Cymbalta or not?
- Cymbalta caused joint pain
I had taken Cymbalta for about 1.5 years and after taking it for a few months, I started having widespread joint pain. The joint pain has gotten worse and is becoming debilitating. Joint pain in the literature as a side affect of the drug but the joint pain seems to be permanent! I have not taken Cymbalta in a couple years but the joint pain has remained. I have had blood tests and my doctor says the tests show it is not arthritis.

From this study (12 months ago):
Began taking sleep aids 15+yrs ago.Can not nap or sleep without.Had the Mirena IUD inserted over 10yrs ago, shortly after it was approved.Began exp sever mood swings and depr. Was put on anti-depr. Began having chronic pain.Most sever in the neck,shoulders,arms and hips.Drs were unable to determine the cause.Several yrs later it was determined that I had PMR.I was only 40 at the time.I was put on a high dose of prednisone.I was on prednisone for about 5yrs.Even the slightest reduction in the dose brought back severe pain.I am now off prednisone.I continued to experience full body pain but not so much the severe stiffness. I experience severe perspiration. It was discovered that I had a VitD deficiency.Test around 7. I currently take supplement and test around 35.During all this time I was experiencing severe abdominal pains and began experiencing very severe, sharp "ice pick" type pain throughout my body.Pain occurred regardless of time of day, awoke me from sleep and occurred in random spots often within just a few seconds of the previous pain.I began experiencing bloating, golt, & constipation after getting the IUD. A few yrs ago I began experiencing severe twitching, mostly in my legs, day and night. Finally, the 3rd GYN I was referred to was able to remove the IUD, in December 2013. Since having the IUD removed I am no longer constipated, no longer have golt, and much of the ice-pick type pain I was experiencing is gone. I continue to have sharp abdominal pain, although it feels different. My menstrual cycle has not returned. I am currently taking Ambien 5MG or 6.25 slow release nightly, Cymbalta/DuloxetineHCL60mg, Adderall 20mg 1 or 2x/day, Meloxicam, 15mg, Vitamin D2 (1.25 MG 50k unit) 2XperWk and Fenofibric. I suspect silicone toxicity from the IUD has brought on or exasperated my conditions over the past 10 years. Please help me to understand and recover.
From this study (2 years ago):
I have been diagnosed with anxiety, emotioally unstable personality, anxiety, depression, migraines, non-epiltpic attacks, sleep seizures, night terrors, and PTSD
Have recently had coil fitted very tired
From this study (6 years ago):
Notice in the drug list that several drugs are necessary to counteract the effects of other drugs, e.g., I have moderate sleep apnea. That started me on Dexedrine, which was replaced with provigil to stop the crash after the dex wore off. But, now I use Ambien because the provigil dose that will do away with sleepiness keeps me awake more than 16 hours, etc.
Byetta sometimes causes nausea. So, I find myself craving starches to settle my stomach, which raises my glucose level (Type 2 diabetic), which partically negates the purpose of the byetta.
Too many drug interactions.
