Can't live with it...can't live without it. Nexium made b12, magnesium, zinc, iron, etc. levels low. Experienced many significant symptoms (fatigue, babinski, hair loss, restless legs, etc). Started taking supplements of vitamins and minerals. What a positive difference they have made. Also Developed hearing loss and tinnitus which hasn't improved much since taking the supplements. Any one else in the same boat?

- Can i take a steroid while taking xarelto (1 answer)
I took prednisone for constant cough. had 3rd surgery on back one year ago. Had to patch spinal cord. Got blood clots. Had pulmonary embolism. Now have severe bronchitis. I know the prednisone will take care of cough, but what else?
- Can unexplained hypertension be cause by a partial thyroidectomy?
Doc is trying to figure out why the BP suddenly spiked. I started an exercise regimen after a stress test. I had to be on Metoprolol just to pass the test. Results were no heart-related issues. Lost 6lbs. since starting exercise and don't know if this is Thyroidal or not. No discussion with the doc yet of whether this is related to the thyroidectomy of the past.
- Does anybody have morning oral bleeds while on forteo?
I have morning bleeds which are intermittent. I have been on Nexium for heartburn and after I started forteo the bleeds got very heavy and the time between bleeds shorter.Can somebody shed some light on this? I had endoscopy and bronchoscopy with no lead to where it is coming from I am stopping forteo from today to wait and watch.
- Could inhaled steroids and predisone over 20 years attribute to necrosis of the femoral head?
Hi, I am a 44 year old South African white male. I have been on inhaled steroids since the early 1990's, after being diagnosed as a chronic allergic asthmatic and sinus sufferer. I have been on Medrol 16mg on and off since diagnosis, and The asthma is now well controlled. I had cateract surgery in 2012 and had a hip scope in May 2014 for Femoral Acetabular Impingement. The recovery time was pleasant. However about a month ago the pain in the same left hip became worse and X Rays taken yesterday reveal avascular necrosis of the same left femoral head.
- How much is good dose for infants with refux
My 4 month old infant has had problems with formula and eventually diagnosed with Reflux. took the 10 m mixed with one once of water for a month and half, saw some relief, but and he is now having the reflux again. It mostly prevents him to enjoy awake time and disturbs his sleep. he still eats and is getting nutrients.
We called the doctors nurse and she told us that the doc said to double the dose. has anyone else been told to double though dose and did it work? Is it safe? I am thinking about a second opinion....

Used for an endoscopy prep, great for what it does but gave me horrid and vivid nightmares
- Who cares about the patient? (1 response)
I can't believe I'm still alive but quality of life is greatly diminished and no one cares. Not one doctor cares about how this one dr. prescribed all these drugs over a period of 5 years and I lost everything. I flat-lined sept 18, 2005 and was told by dr there in er that I would live 1-5 years and I had just lost my job as letter-carrier of over 17 years and my daughter was killed in dec of 2000, which I will always feel great responsibility because I knew I should have called her, it would have saved her life as she was killed in the firdale village apt fire and she didn't live there, she lived with me she was only 20 years old. So this crappy dr steven a creelman of seattle just kept throwing pills at me, telling me there was nothing wrong with any of the pills just me. I feared dr's and still do, I know they are just people and most people are good and caring but a lot are not. The Celebrex started after I was hit by a truck on the job in march of 2000. I will admit it relieved some pain but I had side affects immediately, within days to weeks. I was told by the crappy dr to shut up and take them as he originally told me they were not anti-inflamatorys but a new drug that did not upset stomach but they did. I felt trapped because it was an L&I and I didn't want to lose my job and so healthy and strong figured w/PT and rest I could overcome the accident pain which was lower back and neck well I couldn't sleep from pain and stomach but I couldn't tell crappy dr it would do no good. My daughter was killed Christmas night and that's a very hard one. I went back to work because my job was most of my life and I had friends at work. I continued to have more problems from Celebrex and I thought my stomach was on fire, it was blood clots that broke lose and I had to have an operation on my small instestine and what was worse is creelman, the crappy dr, when he told me it was an emergency umbililical hernia I told him I was going to get papers from owcp DOL as I would be off work at least 6 weeks. He said NO!!!!!!!!!! He closed the door and told me no, no I won't say it's from Celebrex when He really did know it was. I had an endoscopy 6 months later and that specialist said no more Celebrex. After that operation I just never felt good again I was swelling up my legs etc and fatique all kinds of not feeling good things and I was pissed at the crappy dr who by the said to me that no other dr would diagnose any different or believe me. So, it was in July of 04 and I was so sick I just went in there andhe was on vaction so another dr ran a bunch of blood tests for hiv which I told her was impossible and lupus and a few other things but no one there looked at any of the drugs except the pain medication which ironically was one of the only ones that didn't contribute to dvt & PE. when creelman got back I was still so sick I had left work and said I would be back in 2 weeks after I had some PT and rest. I couldn't sleep. That's when he prescribed REMERON. It was for sleep which it did help but I gained 50 lbs and within a couple months acquired tonsillitis, bhroinchitis, pneumonia, Phlebitis and a dvt which instead of referring me to a specialist he just presibed me an anti-inflammatory and another anti-depressant plus all the drugs He gave tons of samples which were never in noted in my files. I think he should have to pay me MONEY!! I have none since I have no job and I feel so terrible I wish I could just have my job back. And my Daughter but my health has been a Hematologist and injectable blood thinners. I hate the state of wash medical care about doctors but not the patients and I have no money to sue and it has been my experience not to mention crappy doctor SO WHO DO THE PATIENTS THAT ARE BADLY AFFECTED BY CRAPPY DCTORS GO TO? Oh I also couldn't be in the class-action suit because I didn't flat-line from heart attack. REALLY?
- Poisened by fenofibrate
it started in Apr. 2013. I would eat and get sick to my stomach. I would have severe shooting pains in my stomach area. My bowels were loose and would stay that way. Or at times I would just be nauseated for no apparent reason. My mouth got dry and I began having dizzy spells. Those last two symptoms mostly went away except for the dizziness which would only happen if I bent over. By July it was hard to look at food at all. This went on for an entire year, every day. The VA, which was taking care of me, diagnosed me with a bad gall bladder. It was finally taken out in Sept. Unfortunately it did me no good.
On March 20, 2014, I took myself off this medication. Five days later the symptoms started to lift.
- Spiriva caused me to swell up like a hippo.
My Doctor prescribed spiriva to help me breathe due to asthma/cold. I never smoked but my parents and friends were heavy smokers. I used the spiriva 3 times. Once a day for 3 days then I started swelling in my ankles and the swelling continued until my face, hands arms... basically I was so swollen I gained 29 pounds in two days. My doctor put me on lasix and potassium for several weeks. I quit using the spiriva when my other doctor asked if I was on any new meds. Spiriva was the only new medicine. When I stopped using it the swelling went away.
- Apple cider vinegar does work in place of nexium.
I took the maximum dose of drugs from I was 4 years old to control my conditions. I was, until recently, on Nexium 70mg per day.
I went cold turkey and started instead to take apple cider vinegar with the mother. I remain off all medication and I am able to control my symptoms using 1 tablespn 3 times per day. It's great to be drug free.
