- Stelara worsened existing mild endometriosis to severe endometriosis
My rheumatologist switched my biologic psoriatic arthritis medicine from Humira to Stelara 9 months ago. My other choice was to add methotrexate to Humira, which I have taken before and didn't want to do because of the fatigue and possible recurrence of elevated liver enzymes. Within a month I had heavy uterine bleeding 3 times within one month. As a pharmacist I was concerned about this strange side effect and my gynecologist agreed with my concerns that I may have migrated endometriosis as well as worsening symptoms of uterine endometriosis originally diagnosed in 2000. I've had psoriasis since childhood beginning in the mid 1970s. Arthritis was diagnosed shortly after I completed endometriosis treatment in in 2001. I have reported the adverse event to Abbvie and encourage anyone else to do so. For those of us in this unfortunate group, the company needs to study WHY Stelara feeds endometriosis (does it elevate estrogen levels?) and why it causes a premenopausal woman to have vaginal bleeding/period and/or bleeding at migration sites within 3 days of an injection. I can only imagine the disastrous consequences for any woman on Stelara who has estrogen receptor positive breast cancer history in her family. This side effect is on par as being as serious as those seen with Thalidomide.
- Terbinafine hydrochloride
I would not reccomend this at all. I was described this drug 6months ago. Bad side effects still ongoing rapid weight gain and water retention in putting on 2 stone in less than 6months. No menstrual in ya year Bloatingin the face arms legs and gut. Been to the doctors said nothing can be done so how much longer can you put up with ffeeling like this.should not be prescribed. Makes you feel dreadfull.
- Lamisil increased my blood sugar
I had a normal A1C before taking Lamisil. 2 months after being on Lamisil my A1C is now in the type 2 diabetic range. Is this drug the reason for my sugar level going out of control?

Comments from related studies:
From this study (4 days ago):
Have been taking this drug for 4 months. Breathlessness worse when lying down.
From this study (4 months ago):
This drug caused several adverse symptoms. The total loss of taste happened at 12 wks of taking the drug. I immediately went off the medication. Shortly after 12 weeks of no taste or having something taste gross....my taste started to return. I feel it is about 98% restored. Some sweet things still taste "off".
I had my blood checked because of an annual physical. It was discovered that my white blood count was too low. Low enough that my doctor requested that I have my blood checked two months later. I just did and I am awaiting the results.
I have noticed that I have hair falling out when I wash it! After a search I discovered that this too is a result of this medicine. Even though I have been off the med for almost 4 months now I have not seen improvement. My hairdresser brought up the fact that my hair was much thinner from the 6 wks prior appt.
I had a recent dental cleaning/exam and I had two new cavities. There has been no change in my dental hygiene and I wonder if this too could be linked to this medicine.?? Could the loss of taste affected the bacteria or saliva that would negatively impact my teeth?
Please let me know if you have heard anything like this and also how long it should be before my hair stops coming out.....
From this study (4 months ago):
Took terbinafine 250mg, along with ketoconazole cream for one month due to severe foot fungus. Fungus cleared up in a couple of weeks. Continued the terbinafine for a proposed three months total to try to clear up chronic nail fungus problem I have always had. About six weeks (total) on the drug, I started noticing itching on back, chest and arms, but did not think much of it until about 8 weeks on the drug. It may have started sooner, but not noticed. That's when itching became worse, and heavy rash was noticed. Suspected possible hives, insect bites or chicken pox, but doctor said it was allergic reaction, and suspected the terbinafine due to timing. Three days off the terbinafine and rash is only slightly better.
