  • Cdifficile treatment
    I had drug (cipro) induced cdifficile for three and a half years and was hospitalized 3 times and went through absolute hell until my Dr. finally agreed to do a fecal transplant. Even then the first transfer done via a lower bowel infusion didnt work. Two weeks after the first one he did a full colonoscopy transfer going up as high as my appendix and that one worked immediatly and I have had no furthur bowel problems, no diarrea at all and its' now been well over a year. I took every type of cdiff drug imaginable prior to that. I had to stay on Vancomyicin all the time or I would be spending all my time going back and forth to the john 20 or 30 times a day. I was so ill that I could bearly keep my head up. I couldnt eat without an urgent bathroom trip. I had to wear Depends all the time, my skin was raw and sore from constant wiping. I was given Tinture of Morphine to slow me down. That helped some. My veins collapsed from all the test shots and from the many pints of saline to keep me hydrated. My heart stopped from a lowering of my potassium level and I had to get a pacemaker to control my heart rate. I spent a fortune on the drugs,some costing as much as $1200.00 a month, more than I make working and working was rough. I would have to go to the restroom so often and I work outside where there were frequently no facilities. I would have to bring a complete change of clothes and a disinfecting kit with me to cleanup the restroom. I washed my hands raw. You cant leave that for someone else or they might get sick too as it is highly infectious. Hospitals are not that meticulous either. I once had to go to a Long Island Hospital that failed the precautions test miserably. They assigned me to a room with another patient whose family wanted to eat their meals in our shared room and then use the bathroom. I pitched a fit on them and told them no way were they going to eat in that room or use the bathroom. I can't imagine what that hospital was thinking. Anyway you get the idea....3 years of expensive treatment and all I needed was some healthy donor poop and someone willing to mix it up in a blender and put it in syringe and put it up the wassoo and I was done. Dont let them give you all the expensive treatment if you have a resistant case of cdiff, insist on the fecal transplant right off, you will be very glad you did. The donor should be someone in your family, preferably someone young with lots of good flora for digestion. Someone without other gut problems...they need to test them too. Bring it in the afternoon before and Bingo,you will be back on track the next day. I am open to answer questions or be tested orhelp with anything else you might want to know, just ask me.
  • Terrible excessive sweating from hydrochlorothiazide
    I guess I fit the profile of who gets excessive sweating from HCTZ. I am a 65 year old female and suffered from excessive sweating for two years. With just very little exertion, I would pour sweat from the top of my head. It would run into my face and all over my hair. My hair would be ringing wet. I had heavy perspiration in the groin area and down my back also. I had to change clothing 2-3 times a day and wash up or shower that many times also. The doctor tried changing my Cymbalta and put me on Wellbutrin instead. It did absolutely no good. I went off the wellbutrin and back onto the Cymbalta. I did some research and saw that HCTZ could cause excessive sweating. Both my doctor and my pharmacist said that they had never heard of that. I went off the HCTZ, and my sweating stopped almost immediately. My doctor and my pharmacist were very surprised. I'm one of those people who frequently have different reactions to drugs than are typical. If you're having excessive perspiration and are on HCTZ, try going off of it. It just may be the culprit!
  • Avapro back pain and other symptoms along the way.
    Been taking avapro for last 6 years and every now and then a weird symptom surfaces.
    In the begining it was tiredness no energy, then it was several near misses on the hiway because the drug interfered wih my brain/ vision, then unexplained bruising, mental fog,severe thirst,dry cough,not very good bp control, slows urination, and when my dosage was upped I now have middle back pain and front rightside pain ...not diagnosed yet but i feel my gallbladder is acting up.
  • Avoid lisinopril or any ace inhibitor
    This was the only drug I was taking other than low-dose aspirin 3x/week.
    Within 2 days I began coughing, as though something was deep in my lungs; became long severe coughing fits than threw out my back, sore all over. Then began runny nose, exhaustion, occasional mild chest pain. Not connecting the dots, after a month of this I returned to my dr., who prescribed an antibiotic and inhaler, saying I had asthma! After a week starting feeling worse, sore throat and sore lungs from coughing, in bed from exhaustion.
    After reading on-line about identical symptoms from LISINOPRIL, I immediately stopped it; now, 2 weeks later I am beginning to feel better -- cough much better. I am hoping I will be one of the lucky ones who does not have the cough continue. By the way, this drug reduced my bp from 140/100 to 110/80 BUT I'd rather have high bp than take this poison.
    Now I learn than many deaths have resulted from use of Lisinopril. Had this drug caused my death, no one would know my story as I have no relatives to tell it; am assuming many unreported have died and of course are not able to go on-line and tell their story post-death!
    All I can do is ask WHY is this drug allowed to be sold -- even stranger, in my case the drugstore is giving this poison away at no charge -- a first; but WHY?
