From this study (3 days ago):
I have been using oxy/aceta for 3 plus yearsI only take one or two per week for really bad migraines - last year my LDL cholestrol was 170 - this week it is 201 - never, ever has my ldl been that high - it seemed to start rising with the Imitrex in 1996 ( two yrs after taking it) now it is through the roof. I have always watched what I eat so I know it isn't my diet and I drink tons of water.
My HDL is normal and so are my tricllicerides I believe the imitrex and oxy are causing the hike in my LDL. Does anyone know that these medications are causing this to happen?
What do I do?
From this study (6 days ago):
i am on a clinical trial, randomized, either zometa or xgeva. I believe that i receive xgeva, because prior to the start of the study, i had an infusion of zometa and had strong flu-like symptoms for 3 days. After starting the study, I have had no side effects for 8 months. after the last treatment, however, I experienced chills, low fever, extreme fatigue for 2 days. I wonder if i received zometa in error, or if chills etc. are symptoms for xgeva too.
