This depression is killing me. Everyday I just want to die. I don't want to live with MS. But the worst part is the overwhelming depression. Is anyone else having suicidal thoughts after 1 month of taking copaxone ?
Hello, Starting to take Campral (acamprosate) today. I already take tramadol for arthritis and back pain. Will appreciate feeling that I am not the only one having to take both, but hoping the Campral will really help regarding my alcohol abuse. Nice to join you. Kind regards, Faith
Since the doctor put me on I teased dosages of Tramadol, up to 300mg, per day for pain, I have developed extreme bruising on my lower arms. Anyone have a similar experience? This has been getting progressively worse over the past 6 months.
