From this study (1 week ago):
An MRI showed sinus inflammation with no infection and no congestion and no runny nose. I have had a severed headache for 9 months with strong pain in my right eye on the side the inflammation is worse. antihistamines give no relief, and no relief from neti pot or saline rinses and no relief from beclomethasone spray after 4 months of use. 4 Oxycocet a day only gives slight pain relief. Also have severe fatigue. I also have neck pain on the sides of my neck and stiffness on both sides of the back of the neck. I have no other sinus conditions, no polyps, no deviated septum. Could the alprazolam be the sole problem?
From this study (1 month ago):
Ulcers discovered 3 months ago; Carafate prescribed, but stopped after 4 weeks due to elevated blood glucose levels. Xanax dosages increased to help with sleep (did not sleep anyway). Ambien prescribed for sleep, and Xanax tapered down to leave drug.
From this study (2 months ago):
