Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Does humira cause excessive sweating?
    Having psoriaticarthritis,fibromyalgia,psoriais,restless leg syndrome,roseacea and high blood pressure means complex health issues and a complex list of medication to go with it. Iam suffering extreme sweating,flushing and now a tickled cough. Now it could be due to going through the change (menopause) but that started a year ago and although I was getting the flushes and sweating,it was nothing like it is now! To me,it seems the excessive sweating started roughly a month after taking Humira. Having so many health issues I'm in tune with any changes and note and monitor them. I started Humira 10 months ago now. My Psoriasis has cleared completely so I'm really pleased. Usually,there's a trade off and you end up with something else! Could the issues I have be down to a single drug on the list,or a combination?
  • Does lyrica cause neutropenia and if it does, how long does it take to subside after stopping the drug?

  • Can i take humira while i still have pinpoint red spots on my skin? i have been told to stop the methotrextrate and they started me on prednisone to clear it up, i am scheduled to start humira.
    I have been diagnosed with R/A and started taking Methotrextate and Folic Acid. I began to break out like I had the measles. Was told it was a reaction to the methotrextate. I was taken off of it and given a large dose of prednisone. My question is I am scheduled to start taking Humira injections and I have been off of the methotrextate 24 days and it has not cleared up yet. Is is safe to start the Humira injections?

  • Zopiclone causing sweating and memory loss
    Been on 10mg Zopivane for probably 5 - 10 years. In 2013 migrated to 15mg Zopiclone. Previously experienced hot flashes 3 times a week and in 2013 has increased to 3 to 5 times a night. Usually I have 3 hours sleep, then after midnight the flashed start. In the morning there are sopping wet clothes all around my bed. Doctor has prescribed a beta blocker to alleviate the sweats, but there is no change. Short term memory is poor - could the Z pill be causing this?

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (4 years ago):

  • Here's a what I take of Focalin XR 30mg and Methylin 10mg(with docs. permission cut in half, so I'm really taking 5mg around 340 and 5mg around)

    Focalin: first few hours: dislike it, hyperactive, worse spaceyness and really forgetful. eaily irritated/distracted
    hour 5 or 6: love it all bad effects gone, focused, motivated, but a tiny bit spacy and forgetful still. Plus still a bit irritable
    Soon after starting methylin I got a UTI, focalin seems to make the uhh..urgency worse..(but it might not be, just what i think)

    Maybe later I'll write more about everything else(kinda tired now..)
