Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Why would naproxen be chosen above other anti-inflammatory drugs ?
I had Kidney stones Years ago and they were removed over 18 months slowly by monthly appointments for Lithotrypsy ( Ultrasound ) Over all this time I had a jj Stent tied off from inside my Kidney to inside my Bladder ( To keep Kidney from blocking again ) In the years since then I have sufferred intense pain in Kidney region and have ben told there are now cysts in my kidney. Occasionally these cysts burst and bleed thus blocking my urethra with clot.
- Can combo of subutex and carfate cause joint pain (1 answer)
I am taking Carafate and Nexium for the treatment of several stomach ulcers. In addition I am on Subutex for maintenance of opiate dependence. I am having severe joint pain with this combination. Has anyone else had this situation or reaction?
- I have been on amlodipine for approximately 3 months and have had terrible swelling in my legs and ankles along with pain and itching. should i be taken off this medication?
I was previously taking Propranolol for blood pressure which didn't bother me at all, but last year I developed a breathing problem and was given Symbicort to help get rid of wheezing. The Symbicort and Propranolol don't mesh well so I was then put on Amlodipine. The swelling, pain and itching occurred right away. I asked the pharmacist about it and also my doctor and they both said a small percentage of people have this problem on this medication. I have tried many times to get my doctor to take me off of this medication but he insists it is best for me, but I disagree. I really don't want to have this problem for the rest of my life and I also won't have any skin left on my legs from the scratching, not to mention the pain that accompanies the swelling which seem to creep up to my knees and thighs and sometimes is so painful I just go to bed to lay down and hopefully the hydroclorithiazide will remove some of this water so that pain will go away. The doctor also doubled my dose of Losartin and Hydroclorithiazide. I'm up about 4-6 times a night going to the bathroom so it also interrupts my sleep. Is anyone else having this problem. I would prefer to go back on the Propranolol and get something other than Symbicort that won't interact with each other. Then I won't have pain and itching all the time. Does anyone have any input on this. I would really appreciate it.
Thanks. Debbie CB

- 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...
find myself wondering if there is any relationtionship between the methadone and other meds and cancer?

- Swollen+painful ankle after 2 weeks on tecfidera
Actually, I was taking DiMethylFumarate capsules made by a pharmacy since 2 years (Jan 2013-Dec 2014). Switched to Tecfidera before Xmas 2014 and two weeks later I noticed unexplainable pain in my left ankle. The pain appears and disappears rather randomly, it is always only the left leg (I had a serious bone break of my right ankle some 23 years ago, so it was really strange that the pain is only in the left one). Later I realized, that the pain gets stronger in the afternoon/evening. And then noticed, that my left ankle is swollen.
- Avastin--swelling of leg and foot--macular degeneration (2 responses)
I had my first shot of Avastin for Macular Degeneration in April 2014. My left leg and foot began swelling so much that I was sent to the ER. Doctors thought it was another blood clot, but it was not.
This is December and the swelling is worse.
- Jaw pain and naproxen
Taking naproxen for pain relief of mortons neuromas. 500 mg twice a day (cut in half) caused breathing problems. Now dose reduced to 125mg 2xdaily still causing intense jaw pain
- Androgel for secondary hypogonadism
Severe swelling in legs, ankles and feet after being on my feet for more than one hour. Pain in calves and ankles. Feels like they're being squeezed or compressed. Pain dissipates after laying down for a few hours. Swelling never completely dissipates. Always some swelling in ankles.
- Eczema and birth control-microgestin
I started getting eczema over the last year and recently decided it may be from the birth control as well, which I started taking @ 2 months before I got the eczema and skin started breaking out...weight gain, etc. I am on singulair, westcort cream, moisture/kenalog, exederm cream, cerevue wash, cetaphil moisturizer, and started using the black soap which is apparently helping. I started a vegetarian diet and eat mainly the same foods daily to monitor anything for allergies. I stopped taking the pill 3 days ago and I am optimistic. I am hoping others have had positive experiences.
