- Frequent bowel movements while taking januvia
i noticed while taking januvia i will have atleast 4-5 bowel movements a day. Before januvia I went 1 or two times a week. I once was unable to fill my perscription for more than a week and my movements went back to normal. As soon as I went back on the januvia I again was going 4-5 times a day.
- Labral ligament tear in shoulder
MRI showed Labral Ligament Tear in left shoulder while on Xarelto with no fall, injury, or any physical activity that should have resulted in such an injury. Will be seeing Orthopedic doctor very soon for possible surgery.
- 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.
- 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.
- Eczema after takin xarelto
After the second day of taking Xarelto for a pulmonary embolism, I noticed a red itchy patch on my neck. My doctor identified it as eczema. I've never had it before in my life.

I am an 83 yr. old female just starting to take
Xaltera for irregular heart beat and had stomach
cramps and diarrhea with my first pill. Would taking Pepto Bismal or Omodium with the pill help
with the problem or will that cause further
medical problems. With this pill, I don't have
to check my blood frequently. Any other suggestions? Thks.
