- Can viread cause weight loss and low wbc count?
(Asked by a 36 year old man who has Weight Loss - Unintentional, and takes Viread )
I was diagnosed with Chronic HBV in 2012. The original viral count was 100 copies. It slowly went up to 12K copies early this year. I saw 2 specialists and one told me it's the right time to take Viread now and the other said it's border line and I could wait but it does not hurt to take it since it has very minimum side effect. So I went ahead and started taking the medicine in March 2014. 4 months after I start with Viread I continue to lose weight. All my HBV lab tests came back to be fine. About 3 weeks ago I started to have visible blood in my urine and I went and did abs ultrasound and even CT Scan and the doctor could not find anything. The only they found is there is viral infection in the urine. Then my primary doctor told me that my CBC blood result showed that my White Blood Cell count is extremely low and that I may have leukemia. I am still waiting for the most recent blood test from a hematologist. I am concerned about my weight loss (about 10 pounds) and my low WBC count. Can someone please help if this is related to Viread? Thanks!
- Is it bad to take levorphanol tartrate if i have liver damage caused by hep c
(Asked by a 54 year old man who has Hepatitis C, and takes Levorphanol Tartrate, Eszopiclone, Lasix, Potassium Chloride, Spironolactone, Magnesium Oxide, Escitalopram Oxalate, Omeprazole, Lactulose, Adderall 20, Hydroxyzine)
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.

- Any success in treating symptoms of pmdd with wild yam root
(Asked by a 41 year old woman who has PMDD, GAD, ADHD, Diverticulitis, Acid Reflux, Restless Leg Syndrome, Factor V Leiden Mutation, and takes Cymbalta, Ativan, Dextroamphetamine Sulfate, Nexium, Catapres, Magnesium)
Hi All. A little over a year and a half ago, I was dx with Pre Menstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD)and was prescribed YASMIN (YAZ) to treat the severe mood changes and suicidal thoughts I was getting 2 weeks out of every 4. The YASMIN worked brilliantly for 9 months and all the PMDD symptoms vanished. Great - Not!
Month 10 on YASMIN saw me hospitalised from it with a DVT. I have since tested positive for the blood clotting disorder called Factor V Leiden which means I can no longer take any oestrogen based OCP. So my problem currently is that I have nightmarish PMDD and a Gynae/Shrink and GP all scratching their heads unable to find anything to treat me with. I should mention that I have been on all the SSRI's over the years for GAD so we know these prove ineffective for PMDD.
I came across a vitamin supplement called WILD YAM ROOT that may help PMDD symptoms. Its the psychological torment I want to treat mainly. Bloating, cramping etc I can deal with. The anger, the hysterical bouts of crying, the suicidal thoughts etc I can't deal with and I am very very scared.
I was wondering if anyone else out there suffering from PMDD has had any help by taking WILD YAM as I am at my wit's end with this disorder and would really appreciate replies from any ladies who have found WILD YAM worked for them or didn't work for them or any other drug/vitamin supplement that I could try. I am so scared of ending up in a Psych hospital for half of every month if this is left untreated. I'm sorry for writing so much and thank everyone who took the time to read this and offer any ideas. Kate
