Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Does anyone taking isosorbide or ranexa have severe nightmares?
I have horribly, terrifying nightmares, every night. They are all variations on a theme of terror.
- 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
- Did cymbalta cause my heart attacks
I have had two heart attacks in the last 3 years and both times I was attempting to go off my cymbalta and or generic form of it. Under a doctors care not just randomly stopping. I find this such a coincidence that I want to find out more about this drug. It scares me.
- 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!!!

- Understanding and living with cancer
After having one treatment of Gemzar, I had a severe reaction, which caused me to have many seizures. This caused me to developed PRES, which in turn has caused me to have brain damage.When I came out of my induced coma I did not know where I was, nor did I know who my family members were. I could not bathe myself, drive, my speech was broken, I could not add two plus two. I was not the woman I was before Gemzar treatment.Now I am unable to work, I am unable to live on my own, I must always be in the company of another person. I have lost my home and car and job due to this condition. I am currently in speech therapy and soon will start occupational therapy (which is VERY costly) This month marks the one year anniversary of this condition for me. I am making progress. I am able to bathe myself, I can do a little cooking, (although the first time I tried I caught the kitchen on fire a little), I am still living with my Mother , as she is my care taker, my nurse, my driver, my chef, my house cleaner. I currently receive disability. My student loans have gone into default. I could go on but I am depressing myself. I am, followed by my Oncologist every two months now.I want to share this information to anyone and everyone who can benefit from this information.
Thank you, Chelette Williams, BA,MBA.

Joel swanson on Oct, 20, 2012:
Im a 53 year old male, My back and other joints slip in and out of position, My lower spine does and I throw it out all the time, over time my joints have broke down causing lots of arthritis and they always said I have degenerative joint desease and lots of arthritis! Finally I was diagnosed with elhers danlos syndrom type 3(Hypermobility)this explains the dislocating/slipping of my joints!Few doctors are up /knoledgeable about this desease! You might talk to youre doc and have him and yourself get research on this! No cure but it will help them to take your pain management more seriously. Im on Opana er,tramidol vicodin for breakthrough pain and I have an Intrethecal pain pump to pump hydro morphone into my spinal colum and that reduces the amount of drugs I need for pain relief! Most important don't give up! keep fighting untill you get into a situation with a doctor and a pain management clinic that take youre situation seriously and you get the relief you need1 Don't let the depression and hopelessness take over and if you want to get them to treat you seriously NO STREET DRUGS!!! if you use them game over they will just blow you off as a drug seeker! Good luck fight hard and God help you stay positive and strong!
