- Oxycontin induced low blood pressure.
Have taken for 10+ years (Oxycontin). Recently had dose raised by 50%. I now take 140mg 3xdaily and 60mg (immediate Release) x4 daily as needed. Almost immediately after changing dosing (3-5 days later) I began to feel dizzy and light headed. BP began to lower and is now at 89/58. I have been treated in the past for having high BP so this is significantly lower than usual. The ONLY other change in diet, medication and lifestyle is at the same time I stopped consuming regular Coke and have switched to Diet Dr. pepper. Same caffeine levels but not same sugar levels.
- 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.
- Nardil side effects and my experience taking it
I have been on many SSRI AND SNRI medications that quickly became ineffective. Was told by a doctor friend that she had been on an MAOI inhibitor for many years with good results. After going thru a horrible withdrawal detox from the SNRI I had been on and then a period of no med at all I was started on Nardil, as I needed assistance from Pfizer, the many turner in affording the medicine. My friend was on Parnate, a different brand of an MAOI.
Within days, not weeks I felt the depression lifting. It was the most dramatic and fastest response I had ever had to any antidepressant .
Then the fainting started, falls with resulting broken ribs, bedridden and alone I lost over25 lbs in two weeks. I was of normal weight for my height. After I was able to function again, I noticed that my legs were very weak. We cut my dosage from 3 pills daily to 2. That seemed to have stopped the faint spells. However I still had/have low blood pressure that I monitor at home. My Systolic BP was usually in the 70's and 80's. One of the lowest was shocking to me. It was 52/27.
My son is a hospital RN and said they would never discharge a patient with Bp that low.
He was very worried about me as I live alone. I fainted twice after climbing the 13 stairs to my bedroom. The first fall was very bad as I was unconscious and my ribs were severely injured/fractured completely around the front and back and was in terrific pain. I took to my bed and did not seek medical attn. my last ambulance ride to the hospital a mile from my house cost $1000 and since I have no income or relatives/friends to call for help, I just lay in bed I awful pain that was woes when I tried to get out of bed. Thus I lost 25 lbs of muscle, since I had very little body fat.
It has been two months since that fall and still have one area of pain in the front left ribs and a swollen spleen. The doctor gave me no additional meds and just said to give my body more time to heal. So once again was changed to 2 pills daily instead of 3. The hypotension and fainting got better. But I am now left with very weak legs and fall easily and frequently. Guess I lost a lot of muscle mass with the weight loss. However after a lifetime of depression, Nardil works wonderfully for that which had been long-standing and severe for so many years. People noticed the change in me shortly after starting the Nardil. But I am stubborn about going off it despite all the side effects because it works so much better than any of the many others I had been put on over the years.
I am soon going to start doing leg exercises with ankle weights, starting with light weights are first and gradually increasing the weight as I hopefully rebuild my muscles and strength.
Also my vision has gotten blurry and I feel slightly retarded after the weeks in bed when I was breathing very shallowly due to the broken ribs and my brain was deprived of adequate oxygen.
Prior to all this I had an IQ of 140. If they tested me now, I know I would be way down from that. Also doing lung/breathing exercises to expand my lungs so I can take in more air with each breath.
So that is my story of Nardil, hypotension, and depression. I had to really suffer to remain on this med that worked so magically for me after so many failures. It meant that much to me to not be crippled by depression.
- 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.
- 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.

Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 weeks ago):
Lower Back pain came on suddenly simutaneously with leg pain. Did nothing to cause the pain. Leg pain in thighs (front and back), knees (front and back), shins, even the sides of my legs. Especially painful when sleeping, discomfort when walking or sitting. Pain doesn't stop in legs. Back pain is constant dull ache.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
The reoccurring and not healing cold sores on the lip and nose area has been a significant problem not had before the medication and is a deep concern.
From this study (3 weeks ago):
I have otosclerosis on bothe ears already 35-40 years. Both ears have had a stapedectomy surgery on both sides between 1979 and 1983. Sice that time the lost of hearing was more or less stable. In 2006 a CT-Scan has been made and everything was normal.In January 2014 A CT-Scan showed one of the protheses was not connected anymore. A new surgery was planned for November 2014.
In 2010 I started having problems with atrial fibrilation. Since 2010 I used the drug Fenprocoumon to prevent strokes.
Also in January my cardiologist advised me to use Rivaroxaban (Xarelto) 20mg, in order to avoid the continuously checking of the INR of my blood. I started to use 20mg Xarelto per day, during one year.
In November 2015 the surgery on my ear took place. The result was very poor: End of December 2014 a audio/hearing test has been done wich concluded a 50% loss of hearing. January 2015 again a CT-scan has been made wich showed a huge increase in bone growth in the inner ear and the middle ear, compairing to the Scans from Janary 2014 and 2006.
My otologist was very surprised: The CT-scan showed a succesfull surgery, so he asked me which drugs i took. Soon he concluded that the drug Rivaroxaban (Xarelto), which I was using one whole year during that same period,was the responsible cause for this devastating bone groth.
There is no way back. The damage is irreversable. The only solutieon left for me is a cochleair implantation.
So now I am looking fot medical evidence to be able to get some compensation from the Bayer Company.
