I have been taking Depakote and at this time, I am gradually getting off of it. PLEASE remember that Keppra hurts the KIDNEYS. I am getting on Tileptral, which does not have the side effects of both Keppra and Depakote. As far as, Night Sweats, please remember that AZO helps, but also here are two options: 1) Pumpkin Seed and Bio-Flavanoids are both in AZO, therefore, I go to the Health Food Store and buy Gel Capsules of Pumpkin Seed and tablets of Bio-Flavonoids. This helps Night Sweats. 2) Also, I take the GNC Women's Progesterone Cream and put a little down below and a little on my upper arm, before going to bed at night. I certainly hope this helps. BUT, PLEASE NOTE, if AZO can go on the shelf to sell, I would think that it would go with any RX, as popular as it is. I still would check with my Pharmacist, Doctor or Herbalist. I certainly hope this helps you. firstname.lastname@example.org
My Occipital Nerve ruptured last year in February and after all of the MRI's and pills it seems that my Mirena ran out too soon and caused the problem. I've had a new one put in a year ago the 25th and I have had nothing but issues. Bad cramps, pains in my chest (never had them before) heavy bleeding and I get a migraine when it is that time. I've now had 2 nerve blocks but still have issues each month. Anyone else?

I got the Mirena IUD last March and started feeling strange months after. I have gained weight and haven't been able to lose it. I'm in my late 40's - my gyn said I would not have side effects and that the hormones would help me at my age. Another doctor told me the hormones could be ...
