ugh on Feb, 27, 2014:
After being prescribed valtrex while in the military i too got colitis...ulcerative colitis back in 2004. I told my doc it was linked but he swore it wasn't. I keep my colitis under control thru my diet. I refuse to take medicine.

Wow, glad I came across this study. I was prescribed this drug by the VA in 2006 to help with some muscle spasms. I think I took it for about a month...a couple of weeks in I could not have a bowel movement. My VA doc took me off of the meds, but then I started with the bloody diarrhea. In 2007 I was diagnosed with colitis. My doctor had said chemical colitis, but I wasn't too sure what that meant. I was only looking on the internet because I am having this attack of colitis for the last month and it sucks.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
After taking Tamoxifen citrate for 6 months hot flushes got moderate, after only noticing them earlier. Then Vertigo had a very sudden onset, diagnosed with benign paroxysmal positional vertigo. Getting used to it, but symptoms continue after one week. Still taking Tamoxifen.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
hands and feet go numb - turn white - once they warm up -- tingle until color comes back - could be as much as an hour to hour 1/2 before normal color returns.
