I Recently started taking 6mg of Hydro-Morphine per day for pain.

- 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

- Nausea and vomiting while taking savella
I have been on Savella for 6 months now and the nausea has increased with time and now I also have vomiting daily along with occasional diarrhea. I am currently weaning off of the Savella, cutting the dosage in half for two weeks and then one pill every other day for two weeks, following my dr.'s instructions. I have three weeks total left and still have the nausea and vomiting but hopeful that these will start to go away soon. Anyone else who has weaned off of it- how long until your symptoms subsided?
