  • Imetrix verses butalb/acet/caffeine
    I have taken both Imitrex and Butalb/acet/caffeine and I have to say that Imitrex works far better than the other one! The substitute I was given for Imitrex doesn't even touch my migraine pain.
  • Wheezing stopped after topamax sessesion
    Wheezing noted by primary physician in this non-smoker. Stopped Topamax per doctor's instruction. 48 hours later was examined by physician and noted that wheezing stopped.
  • Anyone else experiencing these rare & unbearable side effects from shingles treatment?
    The very day I start treatment I can't stop needing to urinate, can't sleep, and get very shaky and/or have tremors. My BUN/Creatinine levels only become abnormal immediately after I start taking the medication. Nothing helps the insomnia or restlessness.

    I've had an active Shingles infection for over a year (maybe much longer). I was born infected to Chicken Pox (which included related birth defects such as Bell's Palsy) along with a severe defect in a protein gene that makes up my primary immune system. Is anyone else experiencing this???????????????????????? If so please get in touch with me. Thank you.
  • Review: could lyrica cause intracranial pressure increased?
    One dose (75mg) caused severe head pain (increased intracranial pressure) and nausea.
  • Valtrex and warfarin
    Valtrex was prescribed to be taken every 8 hours. After 4 doses I became extremely cold while outside temperature is 80 degrees and also quite dizzy. I also take 5 mg. of warfarin daily. Although the herpes condition is not fully cleared, I plan to stop Valtrex. I believe the mix has caused my INR to rise too high. ny comments ? Its Sunday. No need to say more.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (10 months ago):

  • Recurrent shingles for last 1-2 years with them now coming almost as soon as I am off the 7 days 3000 gram course. Two weeks ago during the 5th day of the 3000 per day, I awoke and the muscles of my lower extremities were so tight and rigid I could hardly bend to move. Painful to get around, could bend. Joints stiff, but it the muscles, WOWEE.. took 5 days to gradually go away. During this, I had gone to 500 2x a day of Valtrex and the shingles were back in 3 days. Nose gets stuffy, extreme itch that 3 benadryl can't touch, and of course tingle and burn. Always in my hair, forehead and sometimes on bridge of nose. I had to start another round of 3000 gram/day. Today is my last day of one week of 500 2x day, and will go to 500 1x day. I itch, tingle, sore, ache and have a few bumps but nothing that has actually popped out YET. This weekend we will see. I have been doing this since 2013.
    They started out every couple months, now perpetual.
