  • 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
  • If omeprazole hinders bone growth is it niot couner productive to take forteo? maybe i should stop taking omeprazole while i'm on the forteo.
    i broke my neck in may of 2013 did not know it. it wasn't discovered until 12 -13 13, while doing physical therapy for my left shoulder and my neck. i had triple vision and really high blood pressure { bottom number was 145 and 175 on both arms}i had fallen twice broke my nose both times. surgery on jan.1,2014 died for a few minutes so stopped the surgery had 2nd surgery 1-6-1. put on forteo in march . i had trouble swallowing so did the camera down the throat bit-acid reflux . i got prescribed omeprazole in december of 14. as i read the blurb s for any meds ii'm given, i read that omeprazole contributes to bone loss . so-?
  • What side effects are ther e from taking essential cultures with singular and spiriva?
    My husband has COPD and Alpha1 he has started taking essential cultures probiotics and seems more tired and I was wondering if this could be a side effect of combining these medicines.
  • I take klonopin and diltiazem (calcium channel blocker blood pressure medicine) and am concerned about side effects. my accupuncturist recommends the ashwagandha. anyone have any issues with this?
    I take these prescription medications but have been going to an accupuncturist since 2012. I have trouble sleeping at night without my clonazepam and take naps during the day and am having trouble losing weight. She thinks that my adrenal glands may be fatigued and told me to try something called Adrenal Response which contains Sensoril Ashwagandha. When I looked up Ashwaganda it said that it could interact with the Clonazepam or Klonopin and also with High blood pressure medication. I am a little concerned. I mentioned this to her and she said they both are metabolized by the liver and it should be ok to take it, just to take it an hour or more after I take the Clonazepam. Has anyone had any issues with interactions with their prescribed meds while taking Ashwagandha? I don't want to have to monitor my blood pressure because my blood pressure medication works good for me. Any help would be appreciated because I want to try it but I am a little scared too. Thanks, Crystal
  • Has anyone taking eliquis suffered from itching? not rashes, jsut irritating itching? (1 answer)
    Going crazy with itching since starting eilquis..Doctors insist that's not a side effect. I insist since it's happening to me, it IS, even if it was never documented when in trials. Since it' happening to me, a patient, than I consider it a side effect. Anyone else???

  • Prednisone relieves anosmia
    Having had anosmia for 15 years now the only thing that ever relieves it, albeit temporarily, is prednisone. I have done 2 surgeries to remove polyps (and won't do it again, waste of time and money - the polyps returned within a year), every herb and other "guaranteed cure" (bogus) on the Internet and the only thing that gives me my smell back is prednisone. Have also done allergy injections, nebulizers, neti-pots, Flonase, etc. None of these things work.
    Being without smell is subtly debilitating. It takes away your drive, your pleasures of life and leads to depression. I wish the medical community would apply as much effort here as they do to the loss of hearing or sight since this is in many ways just as debilitating although in more subtle ways.
  • Melatonin and diarrhrea
    A lifetime of wakefulness during the night, almost never more than 7 hrs sleep and awake 2-4 times a night. Return to sleep easily. Doctors gave sleep aids. Usually somewhat ineffective and sometimes groggy mornings. So I decided to go the more natural route ... melatonin. Worse. It did not work for me. It gave me some if the wateriest and longest lasting diarrhea of my life. The uncontrolled continuous diarrhea was worse than not sleeping at night. Not listed as one of the side affects of Melatonin. More people should be made aware of the dangers of this dehydration.
  • 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
  • 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.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 days ago):

  • no i am not genetically predisposed for these conditions and all blood tests done with embolism causes have come back negative. majority of effects began with taking Remeron and Prazosin combo. was not diagnosed at all for high blood pressure for Prazosin Rx, actually had normal bp. after getting off Prazosin because of complete disorientation and blackouts, continued on Remeron and continued to get worse and worse depression with thoughts escalating to suicide. doctors have been very difficult in regards to this matter because they have so many clients on this junk and they do not want to lose their kickbacks and holidays from the drug companies but all i hear at the hospitals from other patients is how shitty and how many physical health issues occur while on Remeron/mirtazapine. there needs to be more medical awareness in regards to these products and the research needs to go far beyond "newest is best" mentality. my life is ruined because the prescribing doctor did not even want to monitor as directed for over a year and a half and did not want to heed medically apparent warning signs because it is not spelled out clearly enough that they have to be responsible for their patients conditions. now i run into an issue where my work compensation claim is being denied in regards to the physical side effects despite the recent reports from eHealthMe and FDA because the insurance company claims that there is not enough evidence and no definitive direction from the drug companies. only positive, am now slowly begining to lose weight since extremely hard battle while on remeron/mitazapine including near starving self to stop gaining weight. does anyone have any idea as to how to deal with this with a shortened life span and lifetime Rx for warfarin now demanded on top of possible surgeries and multiple procedures? is there anymore reports or doctors that understand what is going on as i am recieving pressure to continue on again with more antidepresents? what are the official list of "blood dissorders" referred to in the data and medical references about remeron/mirtazapine? is sleep deprivation and nightmares even an authorized/indicated use for Prazosin and if not why are psychiatrists and docs really pushing it for such a use? i am upset but any help with info would be great as i need to know how to deal with my current conditions and i believe the only way to do that is to reach a complete understanding about what went on before i am talked into drugging up a again with medical staff that does not want to acknowledge or educate about side effects and greater potential harm?
