I took Zoloft for 2 years, 1997-1998. Shortly after I quit taking it, I began coughing. I have had a horrible chronic cough ever since (beginning in March of 1998). I have been to every kind of doctor you can suggest--allergist, pulmonary specialist, ENT, even a speech pathologist. I have been treated for everything under the sun (allergies, asthma, acid reflux, etc. etc) NOTHING helps the cough. I cough so hard sometimes, I have thrown my neck out, pulled muscles in my rib cage, vomited, (even wished for death at times!). I ran across this support group while researching the cough. Could someone help me? I have even considered the possibility that getting back ON Zoloft might help...? I do remember while I was on it, I had chronic dry mouth. I wonder if Zoloft damages something in the mucous producing mechanism.
Hi there, I'm Ronnie Thompson, survivor of Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. It's been 14 years but I was recently diagnosed with LBBB. Yikes! When I checked, it looks like (maybe) Retuxin, which I took for 6 months before Chemo Chop, may have contributed to LBBB. Even assuming this, i would still have taken Retuxin as it most likely helped the Doctors save my like after a diagnosis of stage 3/4 Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. I'll check with my Oncologist when I see him next week. He's the one who suspected LBBB during last visit.
I received a 10 hour rituxan infusion in 12/2013. Since that date, I have been constantly sick. The rituxan has left me with a hideous chronic cough that won't let go. 18 months, and who is responsible? I cough day and night. My neurologist knew I had severe breathing problems before this happened. I have had seen my pulmonogist, two ENTs, my allergist, a gastroenterologist and my primary. I have been on numerous antibiotics, steroids and pain killers, all to no avail. Also, I have done countless tests all were negative and pointed to Rituxan. Let's get together and join similar forces and unite towards being victimized by this. Please respond to me. thank you.
I am 50 years old and have been on rituxan for 8 months with 4 treatments so far. Last night I was diagnosed with diverticulitis at the er. I am interested in hearing other people's experiences and what they are doing for preventative steps to avoid future episodes of diverticulitis.
I am 12 years post total hysterectomy. I used essential oils to help balance my hormones prior to going on hormone therapy 9 weeks ago which I am using the pellets in my hip and take extra progesterone at night because my second set of labs said I needed more. I should have done this years ago ...
I have Lupus/Rheumatoid Arthritis and my consultant recommended I take two courses of rituximab. The first infusion was in early June with he second at the end of June. All seemed fine until October when my period failed to show up and hasn't thus far - any one else experience the same?

I took prozac for 10 years. I suffer from a chronic dry cough. I have been off of the drug for 7 years but cough continues. Does anyone ever recover from this? Does anyone know why this side effect occurs?
Hi - prescribed Amitryptiline a few months ago for pain associated with severe IBS. Has sorted the pain, but some side-effects like light-headed mess, and dry mouth. I am worried though about a dry tickly cough, as I know the drug is prescribed to people suffering persistent cough! Anyone ...
