- Can enoxaparin be cause of impotence
I was active in sex relationship and performing sufficiently well. Because of a plane trip I was given one injection of Enoxaparin (Clexane' 40mg) for thrombosis prevention. I noticed a lack of libido and impotence . After one month I was given the second injection for the return trip. For the first week I noticed a return of sex desires and good erection. After the second week I experience again lack of libido and full impotence which still persisting after 6 weeks from the return fight.
- How long normally do women have menorrhagia after getting implanon? (2 answers)
I got the Implanon put in over a month ago and I have been bleeding ever since almost everyday, maybe 3 days where I wasn't bleeding. I called the place that I had it put in at and they said that this was a completely normal side effect. But it really doesn't seem normal to bleed continuously for 31 days straight almost. I am worried about my own health with this. Does anyone know how long this will last??? I am so freaked out. I have had the implant before and never had this happen to me.
- Lovenox given in muscle of upper arm with bleeding reducing hgb 7 gms. are antibiotics recommended?
Following a Lovenox in muscle of right upper arm, I had a serious bleed with hgb dropping 4 gms in 48 hours then going down anoter 2.7.gms. Is there any way this drop could be from other source rather than an active bleed as hospital is suggesting even though they admitted to the medication error.
- Hi, i was suggested danocrine 100 mg twice a day due to heavy bleeding, however my periods started on its time during the course of danocrine and its 7th day of my periods and i am still bleeding why
my HB was down to 6.4 grms due to heavy bleeding as i have fibroids, and last year i went through fibroid removal surgery to, after surgery my periods were normal, (cycle of six days) however due to menorrhagia i became anemic, therefore doctor has suggested me to start danocrine 100 mg twice a day atleast for 3 months but my periods were started on its time during the course of danocrine, i talked to my doctor she said increase your doze and now i am taking danocrine 200 mg but today is 7thh day of periods and i m still bleeding...... why so is danocrine not working whats wrong?
- Any one has gain weight from lovenox? weight gain/fatigue
Was on Warafin however it was NOT keeping my blood thin. Reason believed is that the pharmacy and my health plan was giving me the cheapest brand out there. They refuse to pay for the good stuff which would have cost only a few more dollars a month and I would have even paid the difference. Had all studies done and the end result was the low grade warafin. while on this I started gaining weight, was bloated a lot, and headaches increased. Now I am on Lovenox injections everyday and it is way way more expensive than the warafin. They will pay $4,000 a month instead of $5.00 why I don't know. Anyway, Since starting the Lovenox which I have been on Since June 2012 till now I have gained 60 lbs and that is a lot of weight for me. I try to eat healthy but now I am more tired/fatigued than I ever was before along with this weight gain. This weight gain has come on over a short period of time. Once I was off the warafin the weight dropped I gain. But I have gained more weight on the lovenox than the warafin. And I have been on the Lovenox longer so that why the more weight and more weight on the lovenox. How can I combat this. It is to much for my body. I have had every blood test and study done to see of it was due to anything else and the answer is NO. No one can explained it and I have been to the specialist who study you for anything and everything and I am clean. Any advice? Any one else have this problem with the fatigue and huge weight gain.

- Excessive menstrual cycle bleeding??? here's a possible answer! (1 response)
I take Hydrochlorothiazide 25mg and Atenolol 50mg daily for high blood pressure. I have had every exam known to man and all blood work and test results come back clear with no indications of a reason as to why my pressure is high. Needless to say, I take the meds and my blood pressure is controlled. I went to the dentist yesterday to have a filling replaced, the doctor gave me a novocaine injection, did the work and I was out of there happy as a pig in mud. The doctor did not ask if I was on my menstrual cycle and today I realize why he should have. I have to use the restroom every 15 minutes MAXIMUM, to change my sanitary napkin and release the blood that has accumulated in my vaginal canal. Wearing a tampon is not even an option! There is no pain however it is so gross. I once took 2 excedrin while on my cycle and had the mini version of what is happening now. Needless to say, the combination of hydrochlorothiazide and novocaine should not be mixed especially during your menstrual cycle.
- Understanding and living with cancer
After having one treatment of Gemzar, I had a severe reaction, which caused me to have many seizures. This caused me to developed PRES, which in turn has caused me to have brain damage.When I came out of my induced coma I did not know where I was, nor did I know who my family members were. I could not bathe myself, drive, my speech was broken, I could not add two plus two. I was not the woman I was before Gemzar treatment.Now I am unable to work, I am unable to live on my own, I must always be in the company of another person. I have lost my home and car and job due to this condition. I am currently in speech therapy and soon will start occupational therapy (which is VERY costly) This month marks the one year anniversary of this condition for me. I am making progress. I am able to bathe myself, I can do a little cooking, (although the first time I tried I caught the kitchen on fire a little), I am still living with my Mother , as she is my care taker, my nurse, my driver, my chef, my house cleaner. I currently receive disability. My student loans have gone into default. I could go on but I am depressing myself. I am, followed by my Oncologist every two months now.I want to share this information to anyone and everyone who can benefit from this information.
Thank you, Chelette Williams, BA,MBA.
