  • Does anyone get numbness in lower legs after sleeping for 4-5 hours? wakes me up and now advil no longer helping with discomfort
    Not sure if any of my COPD medications are causing my lower leg numbness or if I have an undiagnosed medical condition. I have been taking Spiriva and Advair for at least a year. The numbness seems to wake me up after 4-5 hours of sleep. Recently started using the Proventil HFA inhaler but not every day so not sure if this rescue inhaler is causing lower leg numbness. No tingling or cramping occurring in lower legs. Also stomach seems to be slightly throbbing at the same time but only if lying on either side..do not feel this sensation if lying on my back. Advil used to help me get back to sleep but now it does not seem to be helping this numbness subside. Anyone else ever have anything like this? No numbness during daytime

  • Lyrica and doxylamine - not a good cocktail!
    I've been taking Lyrica 125mg total per day in 2x doses for 6 weeks, a few manageable side effects, (gaining weight and feeling dopey) I don't like it, but I recognise its ability to reduce @ 50% of the nerve pain and ability to help me function at work while I wait to see the surgeon.

    I took 50mg Doxylamine at night as a suggestion from a pharmacist to help sleep. Not a great idea! In the morning I was dulled, dopey. My speech was slurred, it made thinking very difficult and I couldn't drive safely. Felt spacey and stoned. For 48 hours!!! Even taking just 25mgs had long lasting side effects.
    I don't recommend this cocktail!
  • Formoteral fumarate inhalation powder
    I have been using this drug since 2004. The only one that gives me near immediate relief. I have tried nearly every drug for this condition, and this is the only one that is easy to use, at home and away. I also follow up with azthmanex, which is a steroid, and using for a year
  • Blood sugar level while taking veltrex
    I been taking Veltrex for a viral infection in my eye for 3 days and today my blood sugar was 448.My normal blood sugar runs around 146.
  • Leg pain especially near knees after taking lyrica
    Had to stop taking Lyrica due to joint pain in both legs. Difficult to get up from sitting position to stand. Ache in knee's can't relax to sleep. Motrin and vicodin not helping with pain. Also have applied muscle cream not working for pain. Have been off the lyrica for 3 months with no let up in pain. Did not have this pain before taking lyrica.
  • A life of depression and fatigue (1 response)
    1) Family history of depression, 2) Diagnosed depression 1964-not treated until 1973, 3) Worked in medical field 35 years, 4) Emergency on-call 24/7, 5) Hospital 15 times major depression, 6) Tried nearly all MAOI, TCA, SSRI, SNRI, and ECT. 7) 100% Disability in 1998 for depression. Now at age 70 I have dysthymia, chronic fatigue, COPD, and PTSD. My recommendation to younger people - do not over stress,
    do not smoke, avoid horrific or traumatic situations and try to find some enjoyment in life. If you have symptoms like mine seek early treatment put balance in your life. The often heard recommendations - get plenty of sleep, eat properly, learn to relax and avoid bad habits should not be ignored, they are critical to good physical and mental health.
