- Does toviaz interact negatively with ibuproffen
Male, 62 years old. Had a prostatectomy months ago (cancerous, 7 rating). One month after surgery, I started taking one 4 mg pill of Toviaz. Worked like magic with no side effects.
Three weeks ago, I lost control again. The leakage was so bad in frequency that I had to go back to using pads. This lasted for 5 days before things gradually went back to "almost normal".
The only difference in medication, food and drinks that I had in those 5 days is I used to take 2 ibuprofen pills (200 mg each) in the morning & 2 at night to deal with headache.
Once I stopped taking the ibuprofen, things improved.
Could what happened with me be the result of of interaction between Toviaz & Ibuproffen? I called Pfizer and the lady siad she does not have any information on this
- Hi, when i take only topamax i am ok, but when i am taking the topamax + rasilez as a side effect i have a very strong labyrinthitis. is it normal? what i can do? thanks in advance.
I am a man 56 years old, I had Hemicrania continua since I had 20 years old, the clinical picture is gradually worsened and now I also have the problem of too high pressure and I have to take Topamax plus Rasilez, but immediately I have as a side effect a very strong labyrinthitis with nausea and vomiting.
When I use the two drugs I have to stay in bed!
- 8 year old boy has erratic heartbeat. started tamiflu last week. do i need to quit tamiflu? he had a 104.1 temp when we started treatments.
Shortly after being dosed with Tamiflu this morning, he had a very erratic heartbeat. He is positive for influenza last Thursday and has been on Tamiflu since and Ibuprofen to manage fever (was up to 104.1 last week). Local clinic wants to see him. I don't feel like taking him there will solve anything. Its returned to normal within an hour of dosing with Tamiflu.
- I tested positive for methadone, i have never taken this drug (1 answer)
I tested positive for methadone, I have never taken this drug. My Dr said I had to have taken it because it was there and that a false positive is out of the question. Could my meds cause methadone to show up on a urine drug test

- Nuvigil & prilosec caused horrible experience
Both the pharmacy and doctor didn't have this interaction in their system after 4 ER trips I finally looked this interaction up. The problems didn't appear for 3 weeks after I started taking Nuvigil. So I didn't connect the two...it was a horrible experience.
- Sodium phosphate sensitivity - chlortrimaton helps
When I eat meat or any product with Sodium Phosphate in it, either in one large dose or cumulatively I get all of these symptoms. It gets worse if I eat it in consecutive meals and/or days. Taking Chlortrimaton eases the symptoms. The Doctor says this is not an allergy but is a sensitivity to Sodium Phosphate. There are other meat tenderizers and preservatives that have one or more of the symptoms listed but I have not been able to identify them.
- Farxiga caused severe cramps and vomiting
I have a history of ulcers but no problems in over a year. I have ulcerative colitis but has been in remission over 10 years. The very first time I took this medicine I had severe bloating and cramps within 30 min. I took it for 2 days with the pain then stopped one day, it settled down but did not stop. I took it the next 2 days and it became so severe I stopped all together. It is 3 days later and I'm still hurting. It is 2 days before Christmas and I'm not even sure I can get a hold of my gastro to check me. Stay away from this drug
