- Does lyrica cause neutropenia and if it does, how long does it take to subside after stopping the drug?
The patient is a 28 year old female who has been involved in a horrific car accident back in February 7th 2014. She had bilateral femural fracture along with fractured right tibia and fibula in addition to right humerus.

- I take klonopin and diltiazem (calcium channel blocker blood pressure medicine) and am concerned about side effects. my accupuncturist recommends the ashwagandha. anyone have any issues with this?
I take these prescription medications but have been going to an accupuncturist since 2012. I have trouble sleeping at night without my clonazepam and take naps during the day and am having trouble losing weight. She thinks that my adrenal glands may be fatigued and told me to try something called Adrenal Response which contains Sensoril Ashwagandha. When I looked up Ashwaganda it said that it could interact with the Clonazepam or Klonopin and also with High blood pressure medication. I am a little concerned. I mentioned this to her and she said they both are metabolized by the liver and it should be ok to take it, just to take it an hour or more after I take the Clonazepam. Has anyone had any issues with interactions with their prescribed meds while taking Ashwagandha? I don't want to have to monitor my blood pressure because my blood pressure medication works good for me. Any help would be appreciated because I want to try it but I am a little scared too. Thanks, Crystal
- Does anyone else have trouble getting to sleep since beginning to take brilinta? (1 answer)
Am trying to figure out just why, since stent insertion, I have developed insomnia which keeps me from getting to sleep at night. Brilinta is the only new drug I am taking.I am very sleepy, falling asleep in my chair while watching TV, but wide awake when I go to bed and staying awake until two or three in the morning. I do not nap during the day and am pretty active with cardio rehab and walking the dogs three times a day.

- Fructose malabsorption symptoms become wore with effexor
I took Venlafaxine for several years. During that time I was diagnosed with Fructose Malabsorption (FM), something I suspect that I have had for years already. For a period of two years I switched medication and took some other SSRIs instead of Venlafaxine and then returned to Venlafaxine and found that my FM symptoms right away increased/returned. When I came off of Venlafaxine I noticed that my FM symptoms became easier to manage but going back on Venlafaxine has confirm that it does indeed cause greater IBS and FM symptoms.
- Paragard and norethindrone acet
I had many reproductive issues arise after the birth of my daughter. Everything from constant swelling, pain an vaginal tearing, pre cancerous tumors. (cervical). I also have mild spots of endometriosis and ovarian cyst all of these are genetic in my family. I also have blood clotting factors so paragard was the only BC choice for me it caused me alot of bleeding issues I went 3monyhs on one straight period. So my Dr put me on norethindrone acet. To stop periods all together which caused all of my issues above to subside, apparently my hormones where the cause of my issues. I love the paragard an norethindrone combination!!!!
- Poisened by fenofibrate
it started in Apr. 2013. I would eat and get sick to my stomach. I would have severe shooting pains in my stomach area. My bowels were loose and would stay that way. Or at times I would just be nauseated for no apparent reason. My mouth got dry and I began having dizzy spells. Those last two symptoms mostly went away except for the dizziness which would only happen if I bent over. By July it was hard to look at food at all. This went on for an entire year, every day. The VA, which was taking care of me, diagnosed me with a bad gall bladder. It was finally taken out in Sept. Unfortunately it did me no good.
On March 20, 2014, I took myself off this medication. Five days later the symptoms started to lift.
- Febrero 2014 - daniel alberto romero
The dosis: Flecainida-Diondel: 100 mg (twice a day) - Pradaxa-Dabigatran Etexilato: 150 mg twice a day - Bisoprolol fumarato-Corbis: 2.5 mg daily
sometimes I get a chest pain and other days an acid sensation coming from the stomach. I assign these drugs as to be the cause as I never felt this way before.
- Nexium and feeling cold (1 response)
I took Nexium (1 40mg capsule) and approximately 45 minutes later, I felt extremely cold. I could not get warm, even though I put on a polartec jacket and sat near a heater.
I also was extremely nauseated at the same time.
About 30 minutes after the incident began, it ended. I no longer was cold and I was no longer nauseated.
