My name is Kim I have been using remicade for approximately four months now and I will be visiting my hairdresser tomorrow to cut my hair short due to severe hair loss. It is beyond saving. And the texture of my hair has become very course. I have psoriatic athritis and remicade helps me to move again. My hair loss has depressed me to the fullest.
Hi, My name is Darcy and my dentist put me on Amoxicillin on Friday. I have taken it in the past with no problem, but 3 years ago I had a Sleeve Gastrectomy and I have found many things have changed in my system. So Friday I started taking the Amaxocillin and on Saturday afternoon I noticed swelling and pain in my hands. I took Aleve and it didn't help at all! Usually it helps some. On Sunday I asked my sister (a nurse) if there was any allergy to amoxicillin that she knows of and she said it sounded like dehydration to her. I started ramping up my liquids and by Monday afternoon I was feeling better.....when I went to take my lunchtime amoxicillin I realized I had forgotten my morning dose! I went ahead and took my dose and the next one and all my joints started hurting. (I do have fibromyalgia). I discussed it with my husband and stopped taking the amoxicillin and this morning I called my dentist and he took me off the amoxicillin. My swelling has improved since last night but I am still having some pain and swelling and Aleve is not helping. I have a call in to my primary but have not heard back yet. His is my case.....glad to meet everyone. I am looking forward to reading about others cases. Darcy

I have been taking Remicaide for 12 years. The drug works for my Crohn's condition, but I am now impotent the last two years. Is anyone else having this problem which could possibly be associated with the drug? And if so, any solutions?
Hello everyone. I have been on remicade for about 5 years now and I never before associated my glucose levels with the infusion.
