- 8 year old boy has erratic heartbeat. started tamiflu last week. do i need to quit tamiflu? he had a 104.1 temp when we started treatments.
Shortly after being dosed with Tamiflu this morning, he had a very erratic heartbeat. He is positive for influenza last Thursday and has been on Tamiflu since and Ibuprofen to manage fever (was up to 104.1 last week). Local clinic wants to see him. I don't feel like taking him there will solve anything. Its returned to normal within an hour of dosing with Tamiflu.
- I tested positive for methadone, i have never taken this drug (1 answer)
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
- Is it safe to take demerol while taking tramadol hydrochloride and hydroxychloroquine (2 answers)
I am experiencing acute, debilitating pain due to the Chikungunya virus, which has reintroduced all of the previous painful symptoms I have,ongoing and in the past, from Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, tendonitis and severe headaches. It's in its 38th day and I am basically crippled from neck to feet. Have to sleep propped up as arms throb with pain when horizontal. The only thing that has subdued the pain slightly are Oxycocet and Ibuprofen, but the pain never goes away. My hands and feet are so inflammed it's difficult to perform even the smallest tasks of personal hygiene and housekeeping. I have difficulty controlling my bladder and often don't make it to the washroom in time. Just started on Demerol today so will no longer take the Oxycocet, but am concerned of the interactions with Demerol, Hydroxychloroquine and Tramadol Hydrochloride extended release tablets that I take daily for the Fibromyalgia and Arthritis. I have dealt with a great deal of pain through the years, but I now have the pain of every serious illness I have had in my lifetime, all at the same time. I honestly didn't think a person could deal with this much pain at once. I have tried and am still taking several vitamins and herbal supplements as well as drinking tons of water and eating really well. Lots of berries, dark vegetables, apples, yogurt and minimal meat. Taking turmeric, papaya leaf, ginger, cinnamon and boswellia for the inflammation. Taking minimal wheat products, sugar and no alcohol. Also, drinking green, fennel and nettle tea daily. I know this is a lot of information, but I really need help and wonder if anyone has any suggestions! Thanking you in advance!!!

- Arm pain on both sides from xarelto and levaquin
Extreme pain in upper arms and forearms. Unable to lift anything of substance.
- Lamotrigine severe rash
I started taking 100mg of Teva-Lamotrigine Nov 22 once daily. I got a refill on Dec 5 that was Mylan-Lamotrigine. Two days later I woke up with an odd hot feeling rash all over my body and severe fatigue. I went back to bed 1/2 hour later after taking my regular Wellbutrin and the Lamotrigine. I woke up late morning. It got progressively worse during the day and I had a headache,fever and chills. I took the anti-histimine Aerius later that day which didn't help. The next day I went to a walk in clinic and they said it wasn't the Lamotrigine and thought it was a virus and did a throat swab. The fever and chills went away after a few days but I still have the rash. Finally after a week I saw a doctor that agreed it was the drug and I am now on the second week of Prednisone steroid treatment and prescription Reactin which is helping slowly. I have reported it to the Mylan drug company.
- Wheezing stopped after topamax sessesion
Wheezing noted by primary physician in this non-smoker. Stopped Topamax per doctor's instruction. 48 hours later was examined by physician and noted that wheezing stopped.
- Seizure disorder med problems (1 response)
Velafaxine 150 mg. 1 per day.
In process of switching from Topiramate 50 mg. 1 pill in morning & one at night (going off of this because of kidney stones) Was on this medication approximately 10 years.
Lamotrigine 2 25mg pills in morning and 2 - 25 mg. pills at night.
On the 3rd day of the 2nd week of switching I started the nightmares. I took a one hour nap and had a nightmare that seemed like it went on the entire time. Even if I slept for 20 minutes I had a dream or nightmare. I've sometimes been known to have vivid dreams but never this constant in my entire life. Also, very seldom do I have such terrible dreams. So many in one evening. They are an occasional thing, not an all night long thing.
Also, I have sinus trouble occasionally. The same day the nightmares began I got a terrible headache behind my one eye and under my eye. I have no drainage yet anyway. Not sure if this is during the start up of this medicine, but if I had known it could cause trouble with sinus I would never have started it.
I was put on this as a quick back up plan when the medicine we agreed upon - Levetireacetam made me feel drunk feeling and I had to be careful just walking around my homes and steps.
- Chills while on tizanidine
Extremely sensitive to cold and have chills several times a day

From this study (2 years ago):
I honestly thought I was this was worse than child birth. Not pain wise, but the feeling that I was going to suffocate. For a little while there, my teeth were chattering so hard, that it sounded like a helicopter to me. Thats crazy, but it just would not stop. My jaw felt like it was so tired, and it locked up. I could not talk or move my mouth hardly because the constant chattering and inability to move my mouth. Trying to breathe while this was going on made it more difficult. I felt like I was starting to hyperventilate since I was trying to take big gulps of air while struggling to breath through my teeth. Finally after about an two hours or so of this, it completely stopped within a second. My body was so tired of the jolting and I developed a severe headache. I threw up about an hour later. It was clear liquid. Probably the tea I had tried to drink when I was shaking with the chills. I didn't throw up my dinner however. I was very suprised about that. When I woke up the next morning around ten, I had black spots in my vision that took a while to disappear. My left eye was very blurry every morning for about a week. I had one injection at the doctors office and was prescribed 800 mg IB profen and Amoxicillian which I've never had a reaction to. The tordol injection was given to me that afternoon at around 5pm along with my perscriptions.

A tooth (plural teeth) is a small, calcified, whitish structure initiate in the jaws (or mouths) of many vertebrates and worn to defeat down food. Some animals, particularly carnivores, also partake of teeth for the purpose hunting or in place of defensive purposes. The roots of teeth are covered nearby gums. Teeth are not made of bone, but degree of multiple tissues of varying density and hardness.
The community structure of teeth is nearly the same across the vertebrates, although there is respectable converting in their form and position. The teeth of mammals have deep roots, and this figure is also rest in some fish, and in crocodilians. In most teleost fish, regardless how, the teeth are attached to the outer outwardly of the bone, while in lizards they are fond of to the inner surface of the jaw by way of a man side. In cartilaginous fish, such as sharks, the teeth are attached by tough ligaments to the hoops of cartilage that accumulate the jaw.
