- Blood sugar level while taking veltrex
I been taking Veltrex for a viral infection in my eye for 3 days and today my blood sugar was 448.My normal blood sugar runs around 146.
- Double vision on levothyroxine
Diagnosed with under active thyroid in January 2011. Noticed onset of double vision in January 2014. Blurred vision and double vision worsened to such an extent that my glasses prescription has changed three times in less than 7 months. All the symptons I experience are a direct result of taking Levothyrixine and have increased as my dose has been increased.
- Seizure patient was on depakote for 16 years now on keppra 1500 mg.
I am 28 years old and been off depakote for 5 months. I started keppra to control my seizure disorder, which works great. But for the past year I have developed osteoarthritis in my thoracic, si joints, and lumbar. I get alot of muscle hypersensitivity and pain. Can any of this be due to long term effects of seizure meds?
- Melatonin reduces essential tremor of the hand
After taking Melatonin 1mg as a sleep aid for several nights, I noticed that my essential tremor of the hand was showing improvement. Within a week the tremor was almost unnoticeable, and I could print and write neatly, even when slightly stressed at work. I haven't seen this response reported anywhere else; have other people noticed this effect?
- Bone infections involving my teeth crohns and prednisone over the past 12 years
Dentist  tell me the abscesses are in the bones and I've had several root canals, bridges, bone surgeries that last 3 years, teeth became so mobile after the bone economy I had them pulled and now a partial one month ago. Bone loss etc. I don't have the ridges in my mouth that most Crohn patients have. Appears to affect the upper teeth.
Crohns diagnosed at the age of 39. Moderate to severe.
Dentists state the problem is the use of prednisone and having Crohn.

Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 days ago):
My mother has moderate to severe A - Fib and suffered a TIA two years ago, at which point she began a regimen of Coumadin. She was on no other drugs at the time other than maybe Thyroid med.
After many month on Warfarin, she switched to another blood thinner, Eliquis, which made her feel very depressed. She resumed the Warfarin and developed very annoying double vision, which appears to be correctable with prismatic lenses in her glasses. She is 91 and I asked her if the double vision was corrected if she covered one eye; she seemed to concur, so I infer she has monocular diplopia. Currently she is only taking a baby aspirin daily.
Questions: How likely is it that the Warfarin/Coumadin caused the diplopia?
Is this side effect permanent?
From this study (2 days ago):
Also taking Red Yeast Rice 600 mg daily. Trying to find source of leg muscles/joints suddenly ache all the time.
From this study (5 days ago):
I do have Relapsing-Remitting MS. Went to doctor the other day I thought the issue in my hips, leg which is occasional in the right hip but pretty constant in the left. It is not painful- but it feels tight- and I have slight problem walking. Also having balance issues. Doctor things the hip is bursitis and not related to the MS. I think it is spasticity.
