- Premarin and nosebleed
Experience nosebleed after second injection of Premarin. Will cautiously monitor and try again. It occurred off and on lightly for much of the day. I never get nosebleeds
- Levaquin side effects
Prescribed for COPD flare-up, along with a 10 day course of prednisone. On day 5, I experienced extreme irritability. I was imagining what it would be like to shoot my husband. He had kicked me in his sleep and I was very seriously thinking of shooting that foot. I got up and secured the gun. However, the anger stayed with me.
On day 9, my knees were so swollen that I could not bend my legs. It hurt to walk. I could not get up and down without assistance.
3 weeks after discontinuing the medication, I still have tenderness and knee pain. I had to cut my hours at work because of the pain.
- Seizure patient was on depakote for 16 years now on keppra 1500 mg.
I am 28 years old and been off depakote for 5 months. I started keppra to control my seizure disorder, which works great. But for the past year I have developed osteoarthritis in my thoracic, si joints, and lumbar. I get alot of muscle hypersensitivity and pain. Can any of this be due to long term effects of seizure meds?
- Endometriosis, premarin and mitral valve prolapes
They took my uterus, ovaries, cervix,even appendix. Put me in premarin before ANY reports how it causes breast cancer,yes or no! Every report was different depending which doctor wrote the report.never any conclusive information and what always seemed a bunch of guessing! Never mentioned how (mare) Female pregnant horses are kept in tiny stalls getting their urine collect several times per day to make premarin. No one ever mentioned id have abnormal mammograms either. The second i stopped taking premarin,within 3 wks of my last mammogram that was abnormal, the next mammogram showed the umps GONE..I'd say PREMARIN was the culprit. Ladys, you can eat 2 oz.of Tofu per day and get the same necessary estrogen your body needs. No side effects,adverse affects that premarin does cause,no more poor pregnant horses being abused,and Tofu is 100% SAFE no side effect,no later ADVERSE effects that can and do end up life threatening,life changing that no one ever wants to admit too until you're in the ground due to ovarian cancer,uterine cancer,breast cancer and a myriad of other life taking conditions 1000s have gone through in the name of some money hyper capitalist who is MALE, whose never suffered with any FEMALE issues,nor living with some catastrophic bomb of adverse effects that can't be fixed waiting to take your life that will be the cause of my death. Mitral valve prolapes was caused from me taking premarin, listening to doctors for over a decade,some telling me premarin is safe,while others said it does cause cancers,but all kept saying how id benefit and how the reports weren't accurate. Then the other percentage who stay safe by saying,"they don't know"..these doctors get in bed with the pharmaceutical companies whose only goal is to make billions at the expense of women just like you and I. In the end, if there isn't enough medical corroboration between honorable medical professionals all who took their Hippocratic oath,"First do NO HARM", you and I become statistics and those who made billions off women used like lab rats who are either waiting to die from a condition caused by and through PREMARIN, or who already died with no proper diagnosis because those companies and doctors attorneys told them deniability that allows them to be prosecution free even after 1000s have died from mitral valve prolase or cancers at their hands. Any other murderer would be prosecuted and put to death or spend life in prison, these pharmaceutical CEOs ,the doctors getting their kickbacks for pushing PREMARIN , they're no better than a serial killer walking free looking for their next victims...think for yourself, research everything and ask dozens of questions first. Its your body, your life,not theirs. Don't let these people destroy any more women or those poor pregnant horses in the name of product development.
- 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?
