I got worse and worse every time I tried to do something I would get terrible anxiety and depression and frustration and then I realized that there must be something about this drug that was causing it and I quit taking it. I felt a definite difference when I quit taking it I was not quite so stressed didn't have anxiety I'm still withdrawing from it but I feel like I'm a whole lot better than I would not recommend this to anyone

  • Percocet and memory loss
    A close friend of mine has been using prescription Percocet for 5 to 6 years. Her MD first prescribed the lowest dosage possible to be taken 3 to 4 times daily for pain. I am aware that this medication frequently needs to be increased because it will become less effective. I don't know how many times he has increased the dosage but it has been many times. I believe now she is taking the highest dosage of it up to four to six times daily and six tablets at a time. I have made several attempts to tell her the information I know about Percocet and to have her to ask her MD about her now short and long term memory problems. Her response is to shout at me, telling me she needs that much for pain and to mind my own business when I tell her about the negative side effects I see, especially her daily and hourly memory problems. She has also said she has no reason to speak to her doctor about memory problems. I think that is because she fears he might lower the dosage. My concern about her poor memory only causes her to tell me I am the one with a bad memory, even though the only pain meds I infrequently take are OTC ones. According to my MD, I have been told my memory for my age of 63 is perfectly fine and better than most for my age. Also I take no medications with the side effects that cause memory problems. In addition when my MD prescribes new medication I always read the info that accompanies them, do research online and pay attention to all warnings and side effect info. The few times I have had side effects they have only been GI problems and I have consulted my MD regarding those and work with my MD for an alternative medication. My friend NEVER EVER reads any of the accompanying material that comes with her prescriptions. Also she never looks up her medications online to get additional information, including possible side effects. I worry about her very much and fear she now has an addiction to Percocet. Several years ago she asked her MD for Chantix to stop smoking, never reading the info supplied with the prescription. I urged to read the info and side effects. She declined, telling me she knew what she was doing. After two weeks of using Chantix she had a mental break down and ended up on the psych ward of our local hospital for 3 weeks. That medication was the first that began to cause her to have memory problems. She accepted that fact for about a month then dismissed it claiming her memory problems were over. They weren't because she was still taking Percocet. I understand no one wants to be told by a friend they suspect that person has memory problems, but I haven't done so to be mean or cruel, but only out of great love and concern. At this point with all the Percocet she takes daily she really is at a level to be considered an addict and I fear soon she will convince her MD to increase the dosage because it no longer controls her pain. I've written this review as a cautionary tale to inform others to be vigilant with their family, friends and loved ones as Percocet can and does cause short and long term memory loss. Although all my efforts to assist and speak to my friend have failed, please don't give up on those in your life who you notice are experiencing memory loss signs that take Percocet. If possible speak to them or their MD. Oh, and be prepared to be yelled at that you are the one with memory problems or to be told to mind your own business. And please, please read the information that accompanies all of your medications.
  • Ranitidine is bad juju
    Used 3-5 times per week for about 1 1/2 years. Noticed:
    shortness of breath
    contstricted throat
    bloating
    chest pain/pressure

    dryness - more so than usual

    I quit taking it and felt much better within 2-3 days.
  • Loss of voice and stomach issues
    Prescribed to take 2 - 300 mg tablets of Clindamycin prior to dental procedure to to knee implant done a month and half before dental procedure. Took two pills one hour prior and immediate severe burning of throat, esophagous and stomach with constant nausea. Still have symptons - ie loss of voice, low grade nausea. have had multitude of tests - ie. EGD's, monometry, transesophageal (with transmitter to determine extent of now reflux) Have to eat small amounts of food at a time. Have lost 23 lbs.

  • Nexium improves my constipation
    Started taking Nexium 1 week ago and I noticed improvement with my chronic constipation.
  • Palpitations when eating raw garlic
    After symptoms of a cold, I've been drinking the famous "garlic honey lemon" mixture to try to get rid of the cold and it actually worked pretty well.
    The first morning it didn't feel very nice to drink but I was ok.
    From day 2, I started to feel heartburn and heart palpitations, with a sort of headache as soon as I drank the mixture. Symptoms then disappear within a couple of minutes and I was fine for the rest of the day.
    This has been getting worse every morning, until this morning (day 5) where I had to kneel down and focus on breathing.
    I can't drink it anymore, my chest hurts and it gets quite scary.
    I usually don't eat a lot of garlic anyway, I don't really like it. I'm assuming it's the garlic creating the reaction, as lemon and honey are part of my daily diet.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (4 months ago):

  • I just started taking the Percocet and the Klonopin. I have taken Klonopin before and have never noticed the Acid Reflux. Whilst I have had Acid Reflux in the past, Omeprazole has always cleared it up if taken daily. Omeprazole and other medications like it are doing nothing, even with the addition of aids such as Pepto-Bismol. I was just treated for a sinus infection and am also concerned that this may be still be an issue with drainage entering the stomach. However, having had allergies all my life, it seems that the Percocet is the main culprit in why I am having this sudden, uncontrollable acid reflux.
