- Hi, when i take only topamax i am ok, but when i am taking the topamax + rasilez as a side effect i have a very strong labyrinthitis. is it normal? what i can do? thanks in advance.
I am a man 56 years old, I had Hemicrania continua since I had 20 years old, the clinical picture is gradually worsened and now I also have the problem of too high pressure and I have to take Topamax plus Rasilez, but immediately I have as a side effect a very strong labyrinthitis with nausea and vomiting.

- Can herpes simplex 1 cause vasculitis which would in turn cause peripheral neuropath
I developed tingling and numbness in my feet (and soreness)over the past 2 years. I've had various tests: back mri, b-12, uric acid, ultrasound for pad,etc. Haven't been diagnosed yet. I thought it could result from the herpes simplex 1 flare-ups (3 or 4 per year) and that in turn could have vasculitis of the small vessels. What do you think?
- I am taking valtrex for herpe type 1, and alco cefdinir for an ear/sinus problem. is it bad to mix the two?
I have taken Valtrex for Herpe type 1 as I had a first small outbreak, and also was taking Cefdinir for a problem with my sinus/ear. My ENT told me I had a "kink" in my eustachian tube because my ear is constantly popping and there is drainage and mucus drains into my throat too much. I took these antibiotics last week at the time time without thinking about how it would effect me mixing the two. I have since still has problems with my congestion/ear, and now I am experiencing what feels like a yeast infection in the my genital area, and a dime-sized lump has appeared under the skin near my anus, slightly painful to touch. Wondering if it was a mistake to take the two together.
- Is vomiting all liquids common while taking morphine (1 answer)
I Recently started taking 6mg of Hydro-Morphine per day for pain. Every time i take the drug i vomit up any liquids I drink. i fell just fine without anything in my stomach but as soon as i eat or drink I instantly become nauseated and vomit everything. It is hard not to drink because the drug is making me very thirsty. So i try to drink and my body rejects it over and over again.. this goes on for hours (3-5)because i am sooo thirsty that I can not stop drinking.

- Nuvigil & prilosec caused horrible experience
Both the pharmacy and doctor didn't have this interaction in their system after 4 ER trips I finally looked this interaction up. The problems didn't appear for 3 weeks after I started taking Nuvigil. So I didn't connect the two...it was a horrible experience.
- Sodium phosphate sensitivity - chlortrimaton helps
When I eat meat or any product with Sodium Phosphate in it, either in one large dose or cumulatively I get all of these symptoms. It gets worse if I eat it in consecutive meals and/or days. Taking Chlortrimaton eases the symptoms. The Doctor says this is not an allergy but is a sensitivity to Sodium Phosphate. There are other meat tenderizers and preservatives that have one or more of the symptoms listed but I have not been able to identify them.
- Farxiga caused severe cramps and vomiting
I have a history of ulcers but no problems in over a year. I have ulcerative colitis but has been in remission over 10 years. The very first time I took this medicine I had severe bloating and cramps within 30 min. I took it for 2 days with the pain then stopped one day, it settled down but did not stop. I took it the next 2 days and it became so severe I stopped all together. It is 3 days later and I'm still hurting. It is 2 days before Christmas and I'm not even sure I can get a hold of my gastro to check me. Stay away from this drug
