Sufferes from Epilepsy, Aneimia, and Depression and anxiety
- Can omeprazeloe cause muscle loss?
Previously to taking Omeprazeloe I had normal bowel movements after getting control of the diarrhea caused by the irritable bowel syndrome. The day after I took the first capsule I experienced extreme constipation. It was hard to have a BM and had to go several times. It has caused bad abdominal pain. I started to have hair loss. It has thinned to half as much as I had. My migraines came on like crazy. I lost eight pounds over about a month after I stopped taking it. I lost fat I had gained in my abdomin but also my muscles have deteriated some. I would recommend that no one takes this medication and it should be taken off the market. People who have suffered from taking this medication should be compensated.

I tested positive for methadone, I have never taken this drug. My Dr said I had to have taken it because it was there and that a false positive is out of the question. Could my meds cause methadone to show up on a urine drug test

- Hair loss happening on linzess
I've been taking 145 mg of Linzess for about 4 months and have noticed my hair is getting so much thinner. I really noticed it the third month I was on it. It's a FABULOUS FABULOUS medicine for us who have CIC, but I don't want to be bald before I'm 50!!!
- Sleep paralysis while on medrol and norco
On my 5th day of my dose pack about an hour after taking medrol and a norco I experienced sleep paralysis for the first time. This is the 3rd dose pack in 2 months and I just switched back to norco from Ultram the same day I started the latest dose pack. I felt unusually sleepy before taking my bedtime dose, but felt awake shortly after taking it. My sleep habits have been fluctuating due to sciatic pain which is why I am prescribed this medication.
- Hair loss with enbrel
I have been on Enbrel for 4 months and started seeing significant hair thinning at the second month of treatments (50 mg once per week). My Rhuematologist suggested 800 mcg of folic acid. I am still losing hair although I am feeling so much better.
- Hair loss with metformin hydrochloride usage
I have been taking the drug Metformin Hydrochloride for about 5 months and definitely find that I am losing hair which is a problem I have never experienced. Always had the healthiest hair, no problems. Well, I am finding that I am losing lair significantly and feel that the manufacturer of this drug should post that this is a side effect as so many have been complaining of the same side effect. I also began having problems with my teeth and always prided myself of having great teeth with no problems. I also understand that if there is a deficiency of Vitamin B12 that this together with taking this drug can cause these issues of hair loss and mouth/teeth problems. Again; I feel this should be totally and more readily informed to anyone taking this drug. I don't feel that anyone should have to give up things important to them to maintain a healthy way of living...I am going to see my physician and discuss what other options that may exist as I am not feeling very comfortable with this drug and the side effects I am experiencing.
- Double vision on levothyroxine
Diagnosed with under active thyroid in January 2011. Noticed onset of double vision in January 2014. Blurred vision and double vision worsened to such an extent that my glasses prescription has changed three times in less than 7 months. All the symptons I experience are a direct result of taking Levothyrixine and have increased as my dose has been increased.

Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 months ago):
I had some hair thinning over the past 10+ years and was told it was due to HBP and medications. Since taking phentermine and topiramate for weight loss along with the other meds hair loss has tripled at a radical rate. I stopped taking topiramate about a month ago and still the hair keeps falling out. When will it stop and will my hair grow back. The doctor recommended 5% minoxidil along with the vitamins I'm taking. I've been taking 10,000 mcg. Biotin, Hair Skin & Nails, E and Fish oil (used to help reduce the cholesterol).
From this study (4 months ago):
I've been on vicodin for 8 plus years hair is coming out my tyroid shows slowoff and on in test vortisol low too allsytoms no sleep heart palppatations
From this study (4 months ago):
Naprosyn, Vicodin, Ativan and Prilosec are taken only on an as needed basis. Some of my symptoms are intermittent, and some are chronic. The though the medications may not completely rid me of a symptom (for example, depression or muscle pain), they do improve my condition enough to warrant their continued use. I'm much better off taking them than not.
The oral issues I'm having all began around the same time in the last year. I first noticed a sensitivity for spicy food I had never experienced. I can no longer use adult toothpaste because the minty flavors are so provinces as to cause pain. The gum irritation comes and goes as does the severity of the other oral pain I experience.
My hair loss I can describe as severe as it can be without having visible bald spots. Whereas I once had unusually thick hair (a ponytail of around 1.5 inches), I have lost so much that my ponytail now measures about .5 inches.
