- Tecfidera and psychosis
When our 31 year old daughter with Multiple Sclerosis started the 120 mg of Tecfidera, we noticed that she started becoming chatty-- talking more that usual. After a week on the lower 120 mg, she started on the higher 240 mg dosage. Her chatter increased significantly. By the second day on the higher dosage of Tecfidera, she was becoming completely out of control with excessive talking. She could not stop. We ended the Tecfidera 240 mg after two days and did not go back to the lower dosage. Her ability to sleep was diminishing on the lower dosage. By the time she reached the normal 240 mg, she stopped sleeping altogether. Even with taking 2 Tylenol PM, it didn't phase her. She could not sleep. We informed her neurologist and he prescribed the sleep aid Clonazepam 0.25 mg. Taking two tablets allowed her to sleep 7 hours--- but then she became completely Manic showing all the symptoms of Psychosis. There is no previous Bi-Polar/Manic in her history or in her family's history. Two days off the Tecifidera, she has become argumentative and combative. She is angry and impatient. This behavior is completely opposite of her normal behavior. The has always been one of the sweetest people on the planet. Any suggestions to help her get off this Psychosis episode??
- 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!
