Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Will my short-term memory loss, caused by levaquin, every go away?
    I wonder if the clinic that gave me the Levaquin purposely harmed me. I have many drug allergies, and I wasn't given the drug sheet that shows that Lavaquin has a Black Box warning. They refused to give me an antibiotic I knew I could safely take. I'm being "haunted" by P.I.s.
  • Can drinking tea few days after having a depo provera shot lessen the effectivity of contraception?
    Interaction of drinking tea 3 days after having depo-provera shot
  • Can a drug test result return positive for amphetamine using 500mg tylenol extra strength
    Can a drug test result return positive for amphetamine using 500mg tylenol extra strength?
  • What causes a headache only when coughing or shaking the head?
    Head hurts only when shaken or I cough. I suspect benadryl or amytriptaline
  • What's the best home remedy for jaundice?
    I started out thinking that I had pancreatitis, had all the symptoms, abdominal pain that went all the way thru to the back & inability to digest food (chronic indigestion). I read about keeping the bodys pH better balanced, bought pH test strips (urine) & found I was very acidic. I began eating more alkaline foods, alkalizing my water, and avoiding really acidic foods. Stopped taking my acid reducers because they actually KEPT me more acidic. I noticed that when my body's pH was up (alkaline) the pain was tolerable but when it began to drop (acid) the pain kicked up again. My doctors say they don't necessarily think it's pancreatitis because the ultrasound doesn't show inflammation & my blood test numbers are only slightly elevated. My liver enzymes are also slightly elevated. The doctors don't Seem very concerned. Today, for the first time in 2 months since this whole thing started I noticed I'm jaundiced. What the heck is this?

  • Dyphenhydramine and headaches horrible going one almost 24 hours a day for 4 weeks and cant get them to stop, now looking for cause . think its the dyphenhydramine im taking to help me sleep .
    have been taking 3 dyphenhydramine for some time to help me sleep , just in last few weeks began having severe headache almost all the time.. cant get it to go away. just found out it can cause headache and am going to lower my intake to one per night and see if my headaches get better. am taking migrane meds and that hasnt helped a bit so think its not migranes im having. some other reason.
  • Raspberry ketones - side-effect of red face, face muscle twitching
    Whenever I use Raspberry Ketones 500mg capsules (1 a day) I get reddening of the tops of my cheeks coupled with muscle tightening/twitching of the cheek muscles closest to the nose (the muscles that contract if someone blows in your eyes) and the muscles at the bridge of nose at times too. Both sets of symptoms last for a day, then to be repeated again the next day on taking the next capsule. Whenever I cease using the product the symptoms likewise end. They began occurring from the very first use of the product. They are sometimes accompanied by a very low-grade headache. I thus now no longer use the product, plus the product made no difference whatsoever to my weight gain/loss when using it daily over several weeks.
  • Losartan potassium headaches (1 response)
    I avoided going to the doctor for years and decided it was time to bite the bullet. The bullet bit back. High Blood pressure and cholesterol. Doc prescribed me 100mg Losartan Potassium right out of the gate. At 33 years old, this concerns me. I've been on it for about a week and have had a constant moderate headache along with some slight dizziness/foggy feeling. I also noticed some ringing in my ears a few times as well. Going back to the doc today. My pharmacist says they usually start people on lower doses than 100 mg. Anyone else dealing with something similar?
  • 5 years on rogaine use
    Im uncertain if any connection but I have been using Rogaine Foam for approx 5 years and early last year i developed a Melanoma directly in the area of use.

    I am curious to see if many others have had similar experiences.

    For the record my yearly checkup caught the Melanoma early and it was removed (twice) successfully.

  • From this study (3 years ago):

  • Dace C. on Nov, 29, 2011:

    I started to experience neck, upper back, and shoulder/upper arm ache, particularly at night, shortly after beginning Rogaine. For months I couldn't figure out what was going on. I reduced my work-outs at the gym, and finally stopped. I thought it might be from too much computer use, but that doesn't seem to matter. Finally it occurred to me that the pain had begun about the same time I started on Rogaine. I have gone off it for a week and things seem to be getting better. It's a little early to draw conclusions, but thought this comment might be helpful.

    I did have severe neck pain in using minoxidil. At first i thought it was over fatigue. After a month, I was not stressed with anything, im fully relaxed, and not lifting too much heavy weights on the gym. During this time I started using minoxidil again. My sever neck pain came back after 3 days of using it.
