From this study (2 weeks ago):
Have started experiencing some fatigue, shortness of breath climbing stairs. Exercise daily weights, etc. Hear flutter palpitations,and at hospital yesterday. Blood tests okay 30 sec EKG showed nothing but fluttering did not occur while testing. Hooked to heart monitor for couple hours.each flutter accompanied by skips drop outs on heart monitor. Doctors refused to state any causal relation.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
Never a clot but newly prescribed medicine Pristiq and I have Factor V, Type 1 Diabetes, high cholesterol and use a fentanyl patch and these were all warnings on Pristiq. I take wellbutrin 300 and Zoloft and Prozac didn't work.
I see an endocrinologist, neurologist, family practice, pain management. My depression is because of pain. I've only been to one pain doctor and I must have a tolerance to opiates. I've tried oxycodone 15mg x many, dilaudid 8 mg x many, morphine 30 x many, Opana Er x many. Not all at once and always take prescribed amount but it never works. Been prescribed the same garbage for 6 years and have had pain epidurals and radio frequency ablations. Was pretty exited about laser surgery and then I was told they don't take my insurance when I have a BCBS PPO
I'm afraid doctors like me psychiatrist don't look atoll my medical history before prescribing things like Pristiq.
