Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Is it safe to take pravastin while on remicade?
I have just started on Remicade and this drug scares the heck out of me! However it is being used as a last resort as no other medications were bring my ulcerative colitis under control I am very concerned about drug interactions and can't seem to get any straight answers from my doctor or the pharmacist. My main concern right now is can I safely take Pravastian due to being on Remicade? My cholesterol is very high.
- Remicade or ulcerative colitis causing joint pain?
Im also on mesalamine, 6 mp and trazadone. Ive had joint pain in elbow before but i realised it was caused by taking cortenema. I stoped the med and pain went away. After my first infusion of remicade (2days) i started with the knee, ankle, elbows , wrists and hands pain. The more i do. The worst the pain gets. Dr seemed to think it was caused by the UC but the timming of when the pain started is too close to e remicade. Ive had 3 doses. Still in pain every day. UC symptoms are much less severe than before. So why would the UC cause my joint pain?
- I am experiencing myelodysplastic syndrome symptoms but it is said that it doesn't typically get diagnosed for people my age. although everything is spot on and i need to know whats wrong.
I have been doing remicade treatments for about four years now. Lately I have gotten a UTI, an I get random bruises every single day, I also get super tired, my body aches, and I get fevers for hours on end without them breaking. I have no idea whats wrong because this has never happened before but someone told me that it looks like MDS and I looked into it and I have all the symptoms just am not in the age group for it. I was hoping someone would know if there is anything else I could look up. I am aware that remicade long term wise can cause leukemia and that is why this is such a huge concern. Please give me feedback thank you.
- Does anyone know how to treat a swollen foot? (1 answer)
I have been on Remicade for 6 months and I am now i am thinking i am having side effects from this drug! My left foot swollen and very painful. Has anyone experienced any side effects like this?
- Can prolia cause side effects to tkr?
I had total knee replacements for both knees in 2011. The left knee turned out fair but the right never gave me any relief. In 2012 I was put on Remicade which helped my RA a great deal. Then a couple months ago I was given Prolia injection for my Osteoporosis. Two days later I experienced a lot of pain in my knees. My doctor didn't think it was the Prolia but I do because it happened just 2 days after the shot. The pain continues to get worse and my knees are getting very stiff and hurts a great deal to walk. The doctor doesn't know anything more she can do for me. She upped my dose of Remicade from every 8 weeks to every 6 weeks and added Plaquenil but it hasn't helped at all. I have chronic back pain and have been getting injections at a pain center for that and take pain drugs for that as well but they don't do a thing for the knees. Do you think the Polia could have caused this problem in my knees. What can you suggest to me. I would really like to find out what is causing so much pain and stiffness and what to do about it. Any suggestion would be appreciated. Thank you.
