- Can long-term methadone use cause or increase the risk of colon cancer?
I had a two-level spinal fusion at L4-S1 in 2000 after being injuried at work in Sept. 24, 1997. I lost everything after...the unjury, ability to do my job, my wife and family (couldn't take the strain) my home, my sense of self and purpose, direction and belonging...credit rating and ability to pay my bills.
After a long period of waiting to settle my workmens' comp. case, I returned home, from the Bat Area back to Arizona to take of my mother with a yet un dianosed case of moderate dementia.
Then, in 2011 I had a 2nd surgery to relieve spinal stenosis btwn. L2-L4, just above the fusion site.
I've been taking methadone since early 2004, a little over ten years, now. I've had high blood pressure since my injury.
Now, I waiting to be scheduled for a colonoscopy, with my father having had polyps and the way I've been feeling..drained, tired all the time, and stomach pains ( in addition to my chronic low back pain), I...

- Can i take ibuprofen when i'm on the medicine miralax to treat my massive head ache?
I was recently told by a doctor that I was constipated and that I should take Miralax. I personally don't think I'm constipated. My lower abdomen hurts and so does my head. Every single time I sneeze or cough it hurts really bad! I want to know if I can take some ibuprofen to treat the pain. But I don't want to get even more sick for using it when I'm not suppose to.

- Hot flashes while taking miralax
After being on daily dose of Miralax for a year and then going off for a few months, after starting back in 2 weeks, experiencing hot flushes periodically all day long last around 30 seconds. I didn't realize when I first started the Miralax for the 1st year that my Hot Flushes may have been a side affect. I even had requested labs to test for menopause which show negative. Again, after I stopped the miralax the hot flushes ceased. As stated above they are back. These did not wait for me to be on the drug 2 or more years either it was within weeks of starting.
- Mirroralax causes b.p. spike
Taking Mirroralax for three weeks. Noticed my B.P. Unusually. High 1 week ago, then last Sat. Right after taking the drug my B.P. Went to 186/101 - I am 65 yrs. old and never had this before. Called my Dr. Got bp medicene -stressed out trying to figure out what was the cause. Then yesterday
Took another dose and right after my bp again spiked up 186/99. Will never use this again.
- Hair loss with miralax
My hair started thinning out probably within a few weeks of starting Miralax on a daily basis. I continued taking it for approximately 6 months never thinking it was the Miralax. It being the only new drug I had been on, I looked on-line and immediately stopped taking it after seeing the side effects of hair loss approximately 3 days ago. So I have no long-term recovery to report as far as return of hair growth. I am keeping my fingers crossed and am already on vitamin supplements...B complex, multi vit, calcium and d. I did start on vit E in hopes that would help.
- Understanding and living with cancer
After having one treatment of Gemzar, I had a severe reaction, which caused me to have many seizures. This caused me to developed PRES, which in turn has caused me to have brain damage.When I came out of my induced coma I did not know where I was, nor did I know who my family members were. I could not bathe myself, drive, my speech was broken, I could not add two plus two. I was not the woman I was before Gemzar treatment.Now I am unable to work, I am unable to live on my own, I must always be in the company of another person. I have lost my home and car and job due to this condition. I am currently in speech therapy and soon will start occupational therapy (which is VERY costly) This month marks the one year anniversary of this condition for me. I am making progress. I am able to bathe myself, I can do a little cooking, (although the first time I tried I caught the kitchen on fire a little), I am still living with my Mother , as she is my care taker, my nurse, my driver, my chef, my house cleaner. I currently receive disability. My student loans have gone into default. I could go on but I am depressing myself. I am, followed by my Oncologist every two months now.I want to share this information to anyone and everyone who can benefit from this information.
Thank you, Chelette Williams, BA,MBA.

cheryl on Jan, 31, 2015:
My husband is 44years old and has been on antianxiety pills for 4 years and antidepressants for 3years. His whole personality changed not long after starting all those years ago. He was never diagnosed with either anxiety or depression but put on them by a GP for one panic attack. He is addicted after so many years and GPs just hand him scripts one after the other with out any questions. He tells them nothing about his compulsive gambling, compulsive lies, anger, lack of feelings or emotions about anything including me. He has no impulse control and seems to not care about anything he does at all. This is the complete opposite of who he used to be. He did taper off once recently and I helped him to do it very slowly. He started to become a bit more normal during the taper but got sick only two days off them altogether and panicked and I think he has gone back on them behind my back. His behavior has gone back to how it used to be and he is lying, gambling ignoring me for weeks if I question him and just being a horrible person to me. He has done some very low things over the years but his most recent one is telling me that I can't say that he has done bad things because I was apparently a whore before he met me. That is so far from the truth that people are shocked and disgusted that he could even suggest it. Well so am I and I have had enough. I have stayed for all these years thinking I could help him to get off those poison pills and he could return to the person he used to be. I couldn't believe it myself that this could happen to a man who loved me more than anything just by taking a pill prescribed by a doctor. I have done a lot of research over the last 2 years and have found a lot of evidence to support that it can happen especially if you didn't really need them in the first place and then stay on them long term. The sad thing is that the person on them doesn't see who and what they became. In their warped and medicated mind they think everyone else is crazy. I had a small glimpse of my my old husband for a few months of tapering and during that time he did love me and talk to me and even wanted to buy me new rings for our anniversary in March this year. Now I am nothing again not worth talking to he just wants to sit in front of the tv after work and play poker all night. I am disgusted with the medical field and wish they knew how it felt to have your marriage and life ruined by a little pill. I have been put through hell and I still feel sorry for the man I lost to antidepressants. He is gone now.
Chase on Sep, 2, 2012:
First a little back ground about me, 46 long term stay at home father. Been described by others as the most calm and patient person that ever lived. Never I repeat never had any issues with raising the kids or dealing with my spouse indiscretions. I was on Pristiq for about 45 days after my doctor asked me to try this after being served with divorce papers. One of my children decides to make an issue of going to school and not giving me my property back to me. Normally I would have not raised my voice or lose my cool with the boy of 14 or result in physically removing the property from him. I noted several times before this episode it was becoming harder and harder to remain calm.
After the episode I went to another MD and he removed me from this medication, with taper off routine, (this MD indicated that it is a side effect of the medication and had been reported). I must say I have not fully regained controlling myself anger wise since, though it is manageable with great effort. I would recommend never, ever using this medication and rather appalled my doctor succumbed to the dish out samples like candy routine, needless to say I will not be using her or any of her affiliates ever again.
Please if you find anyway to remove the lasting effects of this medication, please, please post it.
DJ on May, 28, 2011:
I have been taking 50mg of Pristiq for about 16 days, since my spouse had an affair, and we are trying to work through it. He also prescribed me 0.5 of Larazepam for if I feel like I'm going to flip out.
My comment is, I have at times have spells where I have had so much anger and disregard of what I say or text to my wife about what happened. I have had good days, and when I flip out, I can't stop myself from saying the worst things that I can think of.
I am a very calm person, and this is definitely NOT me.
One night, I wanted to take a hammer to my own windshield of my truck (it has a crack in it from a rock) but I never did it. I could visualize myself doing it on my way home from an event I was the DJ for, and after texting my wife rude things, I said I was leaving when I got home. I never did, but I've said some very mean things.
I am also waking up at about 3:30am which is 1.5 hours before my work alarm, and I take my Pristiq at about 8 pm at night.
I spoke with my PCP and he told me to stop taking it, and he will give me something else when I come in when they open.
At this point, my wife is tired of being my verbal punching bag, and I have apologized for what I've said, but I keep doing it on a 2 times a week basis. Usually when she works her night shift, and I have time to have anxiety about things.
I can't lose my family to this.
