  • Nuvigil & prilosec caused horrible experience
    Both the pharmacy and doctor didn't have this interaction in their system after 4 ER trips I finally looked this interaction up. The problems didn't appear for 3 weeks after I started taking Nuvigil. So I didn't connect the two...it was a horrible experience.
  • Syntroid and pruritus
    I have been on levothyroxine for more than ten years and have had two episodes, each lasting over several months of unbearable itching. Doctors seem to deny any connection but are also unable identify the cause of the itching. None of the tests pick anything. Antihistamines are not much of a help. I am still in the throes of the second episode and life is plain, simple miserable.
  • Thrush while on prograf
    I am a health provider at an emergency room and had a patient come in because of a food bolus and when i examined his oral/pharynx I noticed he had thrush. Patient stated it has been their for a while. Patient also stated he has been having progressive difficulty in swallowing. Pt is a kidney transplant patient and has been worked up for other causes of his thrush (including HIV, as per patient results neg) and everything came back negative. I can only conclude that maybe the prograf which is a immunosupressent can possible be the cause
  • Cardio version caused fingernail abnormalities
    Right hip fracture. When prepping for surgery AFIB was found. Surgery was cancelled and they attempted to get AFIB under control. Finally, cardioversion was performed. When my nails started to grow out they all had two horizontal lines that cause the nail to break when it grows out to that point.
  • Synthroid and breast enlargement
    I have went from a B-C cup size to a D cup in the past 8-9 months.

  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • After almost 8 years suffering these symptoms, and repeated increase of dose, I went off levothyroxine accidentally when I ran out at a time when I couldn't refill. Within one week vertigo and migraines had ceased almost entirely, and after a month off it my libido began to return. I had severe bouts of vertigo several times a day, migraines 5+ days a week, and NO libido for the last 3 years.
