Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • I developed eye pain and redness while using the medicines recently.. I have had glaucoma for the last 5 years.. Could the use of any of these drugs make the condutions worse?


  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • Since I started Remicade in June27,2014 I have had episodes of severe pain after the infusion. The first one in July 5th had me hospitalized for five days because I couldn't do nothing. Walk, or use any of my extremities. After some other infusion I have had on and off pain between a day and a week after infusion that limit my movement for that day. Now my last infusion was on March 23 and on the 24th by night time I had so much pain in both my hands i could grab or move them much. Ordered Prednisone 20mg for a few days. Well it's been a week now and this morning I woke up at 2:00am with extreme pain in both knees had to start again prednisone. I think all this sickness has to do with the remicade.


  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • My nails were really strong until I started taking Letrozole. Now they split vertically, and horizontally, cause hangnails and create ridges down every nail.
    Spoke to my GP who had no idea why they had started to spilt.
