- Will my short-term memory loss, caused by levaquin, every go away?
I wonder if the clinic that gave me the Levaquin purposely harmed me. I have many drug allergies, and I wasn't given the drug sheet that shows that Lavaquin has a Black Box warning. They refused to give me an antibiotic I knew I could safely take. I'm being "haunted" by P.I.s.

- Raspberry ketones - side-effect of red face, face muscle twitching
Whenever I use Raspberry Ketones 500mg capsules (1 a day) I get reddening of the tops of my cheeks coupled with muscle tightening/twitching of the cheek muscles closest to the nose (the muscles that contract if someone blows in your eyes) and the muscles at the bridge of nose at times too. Both sets of symptoms last for a day, then to be repeated again the next day on taking the next capsule. Whenever I cease using the product the symptoms likewise end. They began occurring from the very first use of the product. They are sometimes accompanied by a very low-grade headache. I thus now no longer use the product, plus the product made no difference whatsoever to my weight gain/loss when using it daily over several weeks.
- Mouth sores from possibly taking xalerto
After my Hip Replacement in 2013 I got a really sore mouth, my husband looked inside to see if he could see anything and it was full of little white blisters even on my tonsils. Went to the dr and was told it was Mouth Sores/fungal infection possibly from this medicine. I couldn't eat anything but was thirsty all the time. I lost 15 lbs in a little over 2 weeks due to not being able to eat. Dr gave me Swish and Spit and they healed up within a few days.

G Conner on Jul, 31, 2012:
female, age 65, Texas
I am on both Xraelto and Flecainade. I have had a headache all month since I started Flecainade. Wonder if those will go away after a while, some are severe, or the drug needs changing. I had atrial fibrillation, no valve problems and shocked on 7/3.
Dawn on Dec, 30, 2012:
I'm 40 years old and I've been on this drug for two months now and the headaches havent gone away. I'm on this because I have an MTHFR mutation that causes blood clots in my legs. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this, along with the welling and tired feeling go away.
Mark on Mar, 27, 2013:
I too am on Xarelto (20MG daily)for DVT/PE. Have some headaches as well. Usally after I take the dose at dinner meal. I did find some information about FDA trials of this drug. The drug company had subjects on 10 mg twicw daily during some of the reasearch. FDA did challenge as to why they went to a single dose of 20mg. I have thought perhaps changing to 10 mg twice daily.
