I have lost countless hours of sleep and sanity due to the itch and overall pain doxycycline has caused me. I began taking it to help with the pain my acne is causing me, but this hypersensitivity & itch is driving me absolutely crazy. Does the pain subside after a certain point? Is this pain worth it? Please help!
Seizure starter after bruising to my brain during brain surgery.... Eeg shows I have activity on both sides of my brain consistent with epilepsy. Advised meds will be forever and I have shocking itching with keppra.
I have been taking Depakote and at this time, I am gradually getting off of it. PLEASE remember that Keppra hurts the KIDNEYS. I am getting on Tileptral, which does not have the side effects of both Keppra and Depakote. As far as, Night Sweats, please remember that AZO helps, but also here are two options: 1) Pumpkin Seed and Bio-Flavanoids are both in AZO, therefore, I go to the Health Food Store and buy Gel Capsules of Pumpkin Seed and tablets of Bio-Flavonoids. This helps Night Sweats. 2) Also, I take the GNC Women's Progesterone Cream and put a little down below and a little on my upper arm, before going to bed at night. I certainly hope this helps. BUT, PLEASE NOTE, if AZO can go on the shelf to sell, I would think that it would go with any RX, as popular as it is. I still would check with my Pharmacist, Doctor or Herbalist. I certainly hope this helps you. email@example.com
