- Is it bad to take levorphanol tartrate if i have liver damage caused by hep c
I am receiving treatment from the V.A. in Los Angeles, Ca..
Last summer the va started to hint at forcing me to be seen by there pain mngt. team. Also I was to start treatment for my hep c, it was just becomming active. I knew that the interferon would be just a little stressful for aprox; one year so I offered to do there (the pain clinic) plan with a happy heart just after my liver stuff was done. So I went to LA only to find that the liver lab spent just 2 minutes with me to tell me that since I'VE have to wait a new liver drug to be approved I must do the pain clinic. So in six weeks I went from 200mg (5x4 per day) of methidone to 40mg (1 tab x 4 per day), and in just one week it was Oxycodone 40mg x 4 per day to 0. And all of this isij happening my liver gets more serroscised.

- Lyrica caused my kidneys to shut down
I was on Lyrica for 6 weeks and it almost killed me. I was so weak at the end that my daughter had to help me get out of bed go to the bathroom. I gained 22 lbs in 10 days. I gained over 40 lbs in 6 weeks. My ankles and feet were so swollen that the skin was starting to break open. I was in and out of the hospital until one of the doctors realized that my muscle tissue was breaking down and causing my kidneys to shut down. I have permenant nerve damage and issues with my speech and memory. I could not even take care of my children. I had to have someone with me at all times. I still have issues with my kidneys and edema. I lose my train of thought have through a sentence. I can no longer do basic math in my head. This drug forever changed my life.
- Avelox with prednisone and nabumetome = disaster
I was prescribed that combination of drugs in January 2013 when I went to my family doctor with a bad chest congestion and painful knees. After starting on the drugs, I got a severely painful neck and thumb and noticed some tingling in my left foot. I took the whole course of the avelox and prednisone, though I discontinued the nabumetome. I kept getting weaker and weaker till I could hardly walk. I ended up in the emergency room and was first diagnosed with Rhabdomyolysis but rushed to a bigger hospital for further diagnosis and treatment. I was close to needing blood, my kidneys were shutting down and I could barely walk. I was so weak! My right hand and left foot went "to sleep" and still haven't woken up. ( as of October 2013)
After many, many tests, they came up with a tentative diagnosis of vasculitis and myositis.
Then I had a kidney biopsy which confirmed the vasculitis and I was immediately treated with chemotherapy -- cytoxin for 6 months.
IAlthough I do feel much better, I am still suffering and taking drugs for the vasculitis and I am told that I may go into remission, but it could flare up again anytime. I am convinced that it was the drug combination that caused all this. I had been feeling great and had a daily walking routine of walking 2 to 5 miles per day, and no other complaints.
The nephrologist did say that while it might be that the vasculitis was drug induced, it didn't matter because I have it and he's treating it and would be doing it this way no matter how I got it.
When I told my family doctor that I thought it was the drug combination that caused my problems, he seemed surprised and really no discussion. I told them to put it in my medical records to NEVER give me a flouroquinolone drug again.
Yesterday when I went for a blood test and urinalysis ( which I was doing biweekly, but now every 6 weeks), it showed that I have a UTI and guess what the family doctor called in a prescription for? Cipro!!!! And he knows I'm still on prednisone and have only 30% kidney function!!!!!!
While I am not a litigious person, this really makes me so upset!!! I don't have the money to try to sue, but if telling my story will help keep unsuspecting people from the horrible damage this has caused, I feel obligrdmtomspeak up. I have had a terrible year. And I'm still not okay. And the drugs 'm taking make me susceptible to other problems. I'm still all puffed up from the prednisone. A couple of weeks ago I decided to try going for walks again, hopefully to lose some of this weight and build up my strength. It is so hard for me and my left foot hurts so bad. My legs feel so heavy it is a real struggle to walk a mile. But at least I can. When I was at my sickest, could barely walk to the bathroom and I could not get up from the toilet without using my arms to pull myself up. I couldn't go up the two steps to get into my house without help. I couldn't go upstairs to my bedroom for months.

From this study (3 days ago):
I was also taking Atenolol while on Losartan Potassium. I was taken off this drug because my doctor thought this was causing the insomnia. I have been off Atenolol for 10 days and still can't sleep. Could the Atenolol in conjunction with the Losartan Potassium be the problem. Should I also get off Losartan?
From this study (1 week ago):
Toes, finger tips, and lips have turned blue. Will catch a chill and can't get warm. Fingers and toes always feel cold.
