Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 day ago):
Bone density test showing osteoporosis - put on actonel 150mg once per month. After 1 pill 2 days later eye almost completely closed. Sore to pressure on eye but no discharge, swelling. not really red just unable to open eye. Dr, advised cold compress and antihistamines (no allergies). Neither Dr. nor pharmacist think it is related to reaction to actonel. I believe it is.
From this study (3 days ago):
i am taking these medicines for proteinurea but since last 1-2 weeks i'm having trouble breathing sometimes.
From this study (3 days ago):
Trying to determine if the timing of these drugs- especially the weekly mtx- should be staggered during the day to ensure they are appropriately absorbed. Periodic seizures continue- about once a quarter.
