  • From this study (1 day ago):

  • I am in menopause and no longer experience hot flashes. I have very low heat tolerance and often am feeling uncomfortably hot. I awake every night around 4:00 am and am drenched in sweat even tho I sleep under 2 fans in addition to AC. It takes some time to get cooled off enough to fall back to sleep. The mattress I sleep on is a TempuraPedic and I know this causes heat reflection. I have had this mattress for 7 years, tho, but have only been experiencing these heat episodes for approximately 1 year. Please share your opinion. I have a feeling my meds are combining to cause these heat attacks. Thank you.

  • Started Enbrel on Friday! Last two days I have very bad eye inflammation and blurry vision with headaches. Could this be a reaction to Enbrel?

  • I am on 40 mg of Vyvanse . I noticed lately the following issues
    If I am in a calm environment , I feel fine but notice I feeling of being normal when I first take it for 2-3 hours and somewhere around the 5-6 hour after taking it, I start to crash and get very impatient with my children if they are interrupting me (I work from home). I am also noticing that my emotions are very hyper sensitive. If I am sad, because of something that has upset me i can cry and fall apart. Further if someone is raging with me I get very short/snappy with them. People are staring to tell me it is since I have been on Vyvanse. Do keep in mind, I have custody of my two teenage kids full-time, work from home and high-pressure sales job. I recently got married to a wonderful man, who is very calm and supportive but travels for work extensively. Can this be just a case of life being very challenging at times? Perhaps the meds are not lasting long enough and need a higher dose? or not a good fit for me. I am hoping you can help me answer these questions.
