sleep disorders, disorientation, trouble concentrating
- Can viread cause weight loss and low wbc count?
I was diagnosed with Chronic HBV in 2012. The original viral count was 100 copies. It slowly went up to 12K copies early this year. I saw 2 specialists and one told me it's the right time to take Viread now and the other said it's border line and I could wait but it does not hurt to take it since it has very minimum side effect. So I went ahead and started taking the medicine in March 2014. 4 months after I start with Viread I continue to lose weight. All my HBV lab tests came back to be fine. About 3 weeks ago I started to have visible blood in my urine and I went and did abs ultrasound and even CT Scan and the doctor could not find anything. The only they found is there is viral infection in the urine. Then my primary doctor told me that my CBC blood result showed that my White Blood Cell count is extremely low and that I may have leukemia. I am still waiting for the most recent blood test from a hematologist. I am concerned about my weight loss (about 10 pounds) and my low WBC count. Can someone please help if this is related to Viread? Thanks!
- Does plavix hoarseness lessen or recede?
I started taking Plavix prior to a stent placement one week ago. After two or three days I developed a hoarseness and voice interference.
- How did you get your diagnosis (1 answer)
Symptoms started with body spasms and fatigue, neck and shoulder pain, knee pain and stiffness then banging in ears within 3 weeks of taking 6 levaquin tablets given for a virus. Have been unable to work since because of the fatigue. Massive weight loss without dieting. Had a SED test last month and the rate was at 80. Depression is setting in due to unknowing what is going on with my body and what doctor's I should see for help.
- Could hypomagnesia cause polymyalgia rheumatica
Was initially diagnosed with polymyalgia rheumatica and prescribed prednisolone which was gradually reduced to zero but the muscle and joint pains came back. So I went to another doctor who diagnosed the muscle and joint pains as being caused by my cholesterol medications. I was put on prednisolone again and stopped taking my cholesterol medications. I was gradually taken off prednisolone but the muscle and joint pains have come back. I had a CTU scan and it showed calcification of the vas deferens and I wonder if this has been caused by having a magnesium deficiency and whether this could also be the cause of the polymyalgia rheumatica.

- Nardil side effects and my experience taking it
I have been on many SSRI AND SNRI medications that quickly became ineffective. Was told by a doctor friend that she had been on an MAOI inhibitor for many years with good results. After going thru a horrible withdrawal detox from the SNRI I had been on and then a period of no med at all I was started on Nardil, as I needed assistance from Pfizer, the many turner in affording the medicine. My friend was on Parnate, a different brand of an MAOI.
Within days, not weeks I felt the depression lifting. It was the most dramatic and fastest response I had ever had to any antidepressant .
Then the fainting started, falls with resulting broken ribs, bedridden and alone I lost over25 lbs in two weeks. I was of normal weight for my height. After I was able to function again, I noticed that my legs were very weak. We cut my dosage from 3 pills daily to 2. That seemed to have stopped the faint spells. However I still had/have low blood pressure that I monitor at home. My Systolic BP was usually in the 70's and 80's. One of the lowest was shocking to me. It was 52/27.
My son is a hospital RN and said they would never discharge a patient with Bp that low.
He was very worried about me as I live alone. I fainted twice after climbing the 13 stairs to my bedroom. The first fall was very bad as I was unconscious and my ribs were severely injured/fractured completely around the front and back and was in terrific pain. I took to my bed and did not seek medical attn. my last ambulance ride to the hospital a mile from my house cost $1000 and since I have no income or relatives/friends to call for help, I just lay in bed I awful pain that was woes when I tried to get out of bed. Thus I lost 25 lbs of muscle, since I had very little body fat.
It has been two months since that fall and still have one area of pain in the front left ribs and a swollen spleen. The doctor gave me no additional meds and just said to give my body more time to heal. So once again was changed to 2 pills daily instead of 3. The hypotension and fainting got better. But I am now left with very weak legs and fall easily and frequently. Guess I lost a lot of muscle mass with the weight loss. However after a lifetime of depression, Nardil works wonderfully for that which had been long-standing and severe for so many years. People noticed the change in me shortly after starting the Nardil. But I am stubborn about going off it despite all the side effects because it works so much better than any of the many others I had been put on over the years.
I am soon going to start doing leg exercises with ankle weights, starting with light weights are first and gradually increasing the weight as I hopefully rebuild my muscles and strength.
Also my vision has gotten blurry and I feel slightly retarded after the weeks in bed when I was breathing very shallowly due to the broken ribs and my brain was deprived of adequate oxygen.
Prior to all this I had an IQ of 140. If they tested me now, I know I would be way down from that. Also doing lung/breathing exercises to expand my lungs so I can take in more air with each breath.
So that is my story of Nardil, hypotension, and depression. I had to really suffer to remain on this med that worked so magically for me after so many failures. It meant that much to me to not be crippled by depression.

I have mystery bruises, mostly more or less perfectly round and fairly small. One massive one on the back of my leg that hurts when I run.
ouch on Oct, 30, 2014:
I have been taking 3 to 5 mg a night and I have also noticed mysterious bruising! This is the only medication that I have changed so I am assuming it is the melatonin.....I hope it's safe to take and will not cause a blood clot!
