Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Can restasis cause cancer?
I had a normal WBC until I started restasis. then developed 2 malignant melanomas and then CLL. was on restasis for 2.5 years. there must be others who have developed cancer after starting restasis.
- Can r-chop chemotherapy cause aortic stenosis?
Treated with 3 courses of R-CHOP plus radiotherapy for Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma of orbit of eye in 2010. In complete remission until 2014 then relapse of genetically identical tumor in maxillary sinus. Recently have received 3 courses of R-ICE. During the past week I have had a cardiac ECHO which showed aortic stenosis. I also had an episode of hypotension and bradycardia lasting about a day during one the RICE treatments.
- Why do my gums hurt especially at night?
I got my teeth whitened a year ago and my gums have been hurting ever since. The pain gets worse starting in the afternoon and by the time I go to bed they are killing me! My dentist said it's not from the whitening. He had the nerve to tell me it was psychotic. Has anyone else had this problem? It is NOT gum disease.... Would appreciate some advice or similar stories so that I can be assured I'm not going crazy...
- Does cyclosporin cause infertility/ lack of libido in women
have been on cyclosporine for 7 years and have noticed a decrease in libido and also wondering if this medication is going to affect my fertility as i'm only 29.
- What are the benefits of topamax, does it work well
I am medication sensitive and have severe side effects with Bi-polar meds. I have severe anxiety/panic disorder, hypo-thyroid, PTSD, and Bulimia when anxiety hits. I must take Zofran in order to eat and keep food down. I was on Topamax and it seemed to help with my eating disorder but caused memory lapses, so they discontinued it. I was on Effexor since 1997 and it stop working last year. I have tried Cymbalta, Tileptal, & Wellbutrin with major side effects that caused me to go to the ER. I have been on Paxil & Clonazepam for about 2 wks. My systoms are not as severe but still get panic attacks. the Saphris makes me hungry 24/7 which is not good because of my eating disorder. Does Topamax work well for migraines & prevent constant hunger, especially for sweets & carbs. I am suppose to be on high fiber, lean meat, low carb diet but my hunger for sweets & carbs is uncontrollable. Does any one have suggestions or feed back.

From this study (2 weeks ago):
Though I've always been prone to dry eyes and migraines (not an more issue than in past) since starting my new job I have my dust allergies and fluorescent lighting to contend with - postal outlet. Where I used to be able to work on computer for a few hours before my eyes went "crazy" it's only about 15 minutes now. I depend on being able to work on my computer as a photographer and writer. Not to mention communication via FB and emails. It also has stopped me from doing some online things that are work-related. I can't even watch a movie on the computer for long before my eyes are affected. I've always had a "constant headache" when I am asked to focus on it. I wouldn't call it a headache but a dull pain/pressure in my head. Different from my migraines which are largely hormonal. I've had an ocular migraine which scared the shit out of me, and when I discovered it could be caused from my birth control I stopped that! I haven't had one since.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
Since being on restasis for 7 years I have had blood in my eye at least 3 times a year for the last 4 years

My son started taking intuniv and developed stage 4 Non Hodgkin's lymphoma. Maybe it was just a coincidence but I have always felt the timing was way too coincidental.
