- Ampyra vs kidney stones
Started taking Ampyra Sept 1, 2014.
Had a severe kidney stone in mid-September.
Another two weeks ago.
No family history or them. I also have no history of them.
Drink fresh squeezed lemon daily and lots of water.
Take Ibuprofen when it starts up.
Ampyra is helping with leg strength a tiny bit.
My MS is 40 years old so it is acting like it is old!
- Dont use copaxone. it caused huge necrosis of my flesh!!
I took injections for 1.5 yrs. No problem. Then received a batch that caused huge indentions in my skin. I am a body builder, very obsessed with how my body and skin looks. Now I have massive (1/2 dollar sized) craters in my thighs and upper arms. I can no longer compete. Copaxone ruined my life. So sad, I was diagnosed with MS, but it's the medication that destroyed me. it's the f**ing treatment
. Be careful. The drug companies don't care. They are just making $$$ off of you.
- Long-term use of risperidone and antidepressants
I have been using Risperdal and antidepressants for 14 years for bipolar disorder. Last month I was diagnosed with adrenal insufficiency and progesterone deficiency. My cholesterol suddenly became high, I was tired all the time and more symptoms relating to my eventual diagnosis of adrenal insufficiency and progesterone deficiency. I must also say that at the same time of starting treatment I stopped using birth control pills. I feel there needs to be caution taken in all of these drugs. They seem to have a severe effect on hormone balance in the body.
- Ms relapse - changed to copaxone in april
I've never joined one of these sites but saw this site. I have had MS for 14yrs but changed to Copaxone in April, had a relapse last week and wondered how others were getting on with it. I have a puffy left calf/ankle which can be a side effect of Copaxone - have others had this - can you reduce the swelling?
If I haven't started using this site - my apologies!
- Developed systemic scleroderma while on copaxone for 10 yrs.
I just tested positive for both crest and systemic scleroderma. I already have ms and have been on copaxone over 10 yrs. I believe copaxone may have caused this. I dont blame the makers. I am sure it has helped more then hurt, but I wonder if this has happened to others. If so it should be something ppl are aware of. That there is a risk.
