Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Could requip cause insomnia?
I've used Requip for years to control RLS. Lately it is less effective so I now take 6mg b/4/ bedtime... but also have insomnia and diahrrea
- Is sciatica and macrobid induced muscle and joint pain reversible?
Was prescribed Macrobid twice in one month for Bladder infection. Experienced severe joint and muscle pain during the seven days I was taking it. That was back in September, 2014. It is now mid-December. Is this condition reversible?
- Requip cause dysphagia
an increase caused me not to be able to swallow at all
- Treatment for a dvt in person with lung cancer
Have contracted a large painful DVT in groin thru calf. Hospicis doctor will only administer Aspirin 325 mg. what I have researched does this not address dissolving clot. Hospicis doctor told me the tumor lung cancer was more likely to bleed with treatment to dissolve clot. She was negative and said the lung cancer was going to cause death anyway so she wouldn't treat large painful DVT because it may cause bleeding, i.e. more harm.
Can anyone tell me if use of warfarin or other blood thinners are less likely used in lung cancer patients? When admitted to Hospicis in Dec I was on Warfarin and continued use for several weeks until Hospicis stopped treatment.
I'm considering leaving Hospicis and returning to my previous doctors. I am significantly improved now from Dec. My oxygen use was 5 lt when admitted to Hospicis and now almost never require oxygen use.
- Why has my rls/plmd increased since i've been on ms contin, oxycodone, and higher dose of ropinerole? previously, i was on 40mg hydrocodone per day.
I have Fibromyalgia, Endometriosis, and Periodic Limb Movement Disorder (PLMD) AND Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS). Recently, I went of of Hydrocodone, and started with MS Contin and Oxycodone. I also RAISED my Requip from .5 to 1mg.

- Malignant melanoma while taking requip
I have been on Requip for RLS for about 6 years, and have noticed an increase in basal cell (lowest variety of skin cancer), and in May 2014 had surgery to remove melanoma (dime sized, 4.5 mm deep in scalp), and then another recurrence of melanoma in September 2014 (also on the scalp, where about 2/3 of scalp was removed down to skull), and now considered Stage 3B. So I am doing everything in my power to keep from another recurrence. I am going to discontinue taking Requip, since I do not know if there is a connection, but I cannot afford to take that life threatening risk in my opinion.
