Tests were normal so went to pulmonologist to get help breathing and they were sfraid to use antibiotics just like my primary dr brgore they know nothing about my ra drugs so how am I supposed to stop this from going inyo pneumonia?
From this study (6 months ago):
Symptoms vary, but throat swelling has worsened. Each time medication is adjusted, symptoms increase. Overdose on Levothyroxine (double dosage) was severe enough to cause inability to walk barely a few steps, followed by diarrhea, stomach cramps and flu like symptoms that lasted a week or more.
From this study (2 years ago):
Noticed the Adipex gave me energy, my severe fatige was just about gone but began having headache which last longer then usual. However, after about a week of using adipex, the good effects, like energy the whole day tapers down and isn't as effective as when you 1st take it.
