  • Depo provera and erythema nodosum
    I've been suffering from erythema nodosum for 17 years which started within the first year of depo provera use, in 1997. Now at age 43 and 4 kids later, I really wish I'd never taken depo provera.
  • Nightmares from miralax
    Used for an endoscopy prep, great for what it does but gave me horrid and vivid nightmares
  • Terbinafine hydrochloride
    I would not reccomend this at all. I was described this drug 6months ago. Bad side effects still ongoing rapid weight gain and water retention in putting on 2 stone in less than 6months. No menstrual in ya year Bloatingin the face arms legs and gut. Been to the doctors said nothing can be done so how much longer can you put up with ffeeling like this.should not be prescribed. Makes you feel dreadfull.
  • Farxiga caused severe cramps and vomiting
    I have a history of ulcers but no problems in over a year. I have ulcerative colitis but has been in remission over 10 years. The very first time I took this medicine I had severe bloating and cramps within 30 min. I took it for 2 days with the pain then stopped one day, it settled down but did not stop. I took it the next 2 days and it became so severe I stopped all together. It is 3 days later and I'm still hurting. It is 2 days before Christmas and I'm not even sure I can get a hold of my gastro to check me. Stay away from this drug
  • Medroxyprogesterone suppresses hidradenitis in me.
    I am a Dutch woman, 44 years of age. At age 18, I started to develop symmptoms of what later turned out to be Hidradenitis suppurativa. for birth control, I initially used Marvelon, which I suspected to worsen the symptoms. I have also developed obesity, which appeared to worsen the HS as well. In 2000, at age 30, I switched from Marvelon to medroxyprogesterone, reason being not having to menstruate anymore, which was rather an ordeal. To my surprise, the symptoms of the Hidradenitis vanished; my skin came nearly completely to rest. My dermatologist didn't know what to think of it, and I haven't read of other people having the same experience as I have. After ten weeks, the HS tends to get active again, which is why I now take the medroxyprogesterone once every ten weeks, instead of the standard twelve weeks. Does anyone have a clue what's going on here? Also: would it be possible for me to take a 75 mg injection every five weeks instead of a 150 mg injection every ten weeks? (The anticontraceptive function of the m.p. is no longer relevant in my case.) The 150 mg dose always drains my energy for three days -rubbery legs, fatigue, general malaise. Maybe 75 mg wouldn't?
