  • Frequent bowel movements while taking januvia
    i noticed while taking januvia i will have atleast 4-5 bowel movements a day. Before januvia I went 1 or two times a week. I once was unable to fill my perscription for more than a week and my movements went back to normal. As soon as I went back on the januvia I again was going 4-5 times a day.
  • Fructose malabsorption symptoms become wore with effexor
    I took Venlafaxine for several years. During that time I was diagnosed with Fructose Malabsorption (FM), something I suspect that I have had for years already. For a period of two years I switched medication and took some other SSRIs instead of Venlafaxine and then returned to Venlafaxine and found that my FM symptoms right away increased/returned. When I came off of Venlafaxine I noticed that my FM symptoms became easier to manage but going back on Venlafaxine has confirm that it does indeed cause greater IBS and FM symptoms.
  • Sodium phosphate sensitivity - chlortrimaton helps
    When I eat meat or any product with Sodium Phosphate in it, either in one large dose or cumulatively I get all of these symptoms. It gets worse if I eat it in consecutive meals and/or days. Taking Chlortrimaton eases the symptoms. The Doctor says this is not an allergy but is a sensitivity to Sodium Phosphate. There are other meat tenderizers and preservatives that have one or more of the symptoms listed but I have not been able to identify them.
  • Isoniazid: the downside continued
    I also have extreme fatigue. I can sleep 8 hours and then take a 4 hour nap. I have dizziness which seems to be increasing in the last few weeks. I have nausea on and off. I have diarrhea in the morning 45 minutes after taking it. Then I am mostly constipated for the rest of the day. It seems like my hair is thinning. My skin is drying out or becoming considerably less elastic.
  • Gemfibrozil, depression and sleepiness
    I would like to hear from anyone who has had these symptoms, and how they dealt with it, by either lowering dosage or quitting the med, or other. Also would like to hear from others who continued to drink moderately and if this drug lowered their triglycerides...or those who were no longer able to stomach alcohol and had to quit....or had other reactions to gemfibrozil and alcohol use. My depression is becoming severe. I have life changes as well, so I can't figure if it is the drug. Had to take it as my triglycerides were over 900. They are now down to 250. Thanks

  • From this study (2 weeks ago):

  • I have also been diagnosed with a duodenal diverticulum. This is the third or fourth time this cycle of oral flatulence, severe abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting, and severe diarrhea have happened in a 3 year period. The symptoms come on with about a 30 minute window from warning to debilitating symptoms. At least one doctor diagnosed me with a ventral hernia that was obstructing digestion, however surgery to repair the hernia has not relieved the symptoms..
