- Positive interaction of casodex and saw palmetto
July 2011: biopsy Gleason 7 for 2 of 24 (large number in Japan, done in a surgical room). Lupron + casodex (1 mont injection). PSA slowly declined. Minimal side effects, except for being horny for the first 10 days. Next was 3 months, side effects of severe night sweats and flush, but manageable. PSA below 1. Continued for 3 months, but severe sensitivity in breasts and other side effects made life so miserable, I stopped Lupron, but continued Casodex for a few more weeks. Found a British study that showed on/off treatment was maybe even better than continuous Lupron/Caodex. PSA 0.05 when stopped. Rose to 3.9 over the next nine months. MRI showed reduced prostate size and no lumps, but went back to Casodex for a few months. PSA below 1, so stopped again for a
few months. Repeating cycle. Taking Doctor's Best Prostate Formula (with my doctor's nod (no harm, waste of money). But I found urination became easier.
Now take saw palmetto in the morning and Doctor's Best at night. Even better results, no sweats, no hot flashes, but very surprising happy side effect, which has cheered my wife very much (and me, too). Much, much better than the time I tried Viagra and others after the biopsy, and at 2 cents a pill vs $20, a real deal. Good luck to all.
- Lavaquin and chills
I started this yesterday, his treatment for a heavy cough, and an hour later, chills became so heavy that I got into a tub of very hot water, for relief. Took another one today, and the same thing happened after an hour as yesterday. I was already in a hot bath, and the chills came anyway, somewhat alleviated by the hot water. Unless something persists, this will be my last post, as I do not intend to continue this medication.
- Heavy sweating during sleep
Pain killers like Tylenol 3, vicodin 20 years, Valium and Soma 12 years. Sweat heavy during sleep.
- Pantoprazole dry eyes
started at 5 days after starting the treatment. no other medications or suplements taken. tear drops do not help. putting a tiny amount of stJohn's worth oil at the bottom of the eyes provokes tears and gives a better result. will consider changing the medication for my acid reflux condition.
- Did you recover from bph? (1 response)
For unknown reasons my BPH symptoms have gradually disappeared. I was taking Doxazosin for 2-3 years but it never seemed to really help. I stated taking Saw Palmetto about a year ago.
Gradually over this summer my BPH symptoms faded to almost zero.
I'm not ready to claim that the Saw Palmetto did it but I really just don't know.

From this study (1 week ago):
I have been encountering these symptoms for almost two years. I have had blood tests more than 5 times. It all shows in WBC, fluctuate between 2700-3500 with marginal low platelets and the hematologist see it as borderline. Two ultrasound is done for my abdomen; prostate, bladder, kidneys, spline, liver and all showed normal.
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.
