  • Does zithromax cause excessive sweating at night and headache
    I had a terrible sweating after taking Zithromax. I felt as if half buckets of water were constantly poured on me. I was so scared of sleeping. In fact there was no dry space on my bed to sleep on since the entire bed was drenched. I have been drinking water since 4am to replace the lost water.

  • Stem cell treatment for radiation heart disease?
    I'm trying to find ways to improve my heart valve function, as surgical repair has a low prognosis. This is because the cardiac skeleton is calcified and that means there is nothing to sew replacement valves to.

    Does anyone have info about use of stem cells for this? Thanks for any info.
