Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 month ago):
Alcohol withdrawal was almost complete when the doc decided to order my first Revia pill. The reaction was almost immediately after I swallowed it. What I couldn't find a word for in the adverse outcome drop-down list was a feeling of heat or acid burn starting in my midsection then radiating out to my extremities. The nurses were nervous because my blood pressure was way up. I had to see a cardiologist the next day. I vomited so hard I could not catch my breath, so at first they thought it was anaphylactic shock. Of course they assumed it was an opioid reaction with the Revia but I know darn well I hadn't had any kind of opioid for months. The only explanation I can think of is a reaction with immodium which I take a lot of for IBS-d. Either that or some kind of idiosyncratic reaction. It was hellish.
From this study (3 months ago):
I recovered from hepatitis c some years back, and have loose bowels, and fibromyalgia since. My symptoms wax and wane, but wonder if I could have encephalopathy. I use a fair amount, 7, sometimes more a day.
From this study (3 months ago):
I was taken off Meloxicam and told that I could never take it due to my Barrett's Esophogus. As a results due to my DJD, bulging discs and stenosis, plus Osteoarthritis especially in my hands, my pain and stiffness is unbearable.
