  • Has anyone tried speed amphetamine with hidrenitis suppurativa?
    I have suffered with hs since 2006 with upto 15 abcesses and boils under each arm pit at any one time more so in summer. Early this year i ttied taking speed amphetamine for weight loss as I was having no joy as much as I was trying. Due to me being antidrugs I was reluctant to tske it so kept to a low dose so I didn't get the high (april 2014) but due to the low dose, basically the smallest paracetamol capsule u can get filled up to half way with amphetamine On a mMonday Wednesday and Fridayhad no effect on weight loss so much just kicked my metabolism into shape. Slightly** but I did start noticing that the HS had subsided and fewer outbreaks( 1 lump to two every month but small). I MUST STSTE AT THE TIME OF ME STARTING THE AMPHETAMINE MY OUTBREAKS WERE AT THE PERIOD TIME OF MONTH AND NOT ON THE SCALE AS STATED AT BEGININGOF POST.. APPROX 2-3 UNDER EACH ARM BUT WOULD BE QUITE BIG AS THRY WOULD INTERLINK INTO OLD SCARING!! So thinking this was a fluke I stoped taking amphetamine (I was on my 3rd week of taking it) I stopped for 4 weeks and sure enough I had a bad breakout of a large abcess and another two... i stsrted taking it again mid june and have done upto the start of NOV 2014 in this time I have had one outbreak of just one lump on a old operation area And all the small lumps that lay under the skin wwaiting to flare up have either dissappeard or to the size of pin head. I stopped using the amphetamine for 3 weeks I h just started with a lump to same place and some smaller lumps are starting to reappear so I am going back onto it see if it has same effect by suppressing it or whateverIits doing. This year is the first summer I have not had to cover up due to endless messy lumps,no hhospital visits to have op to drain. I AM WRITING THIS POST AS I SENT A MESSAGE TO THE HS SITE IN UK WHERE I LIVE AND A PROFESSOR FROM CARDIFF UNIVERSITY GOT BACK TO ME AND THEY HAVE NEVER HEARD OF ANY CASES OF AMPHETAMINE BEING USED BY PATIENTS THAT HAVE HS. I WANT TO FIND IF ANYONE ELSE HAS AND IF SO WHAT WAS YOUR OUTCOME??? please. ... I believe this maybe a studfy they can do as if it has same effects as on me could help other suffering people. Im not saying its a cure but omg its definitely a break from the agony and discomfort and horrible feeling of having hs.
  • If your daughter had 3.6mm fibroadenoma would you have it removed?
    My daughter is 27 yrs. old on a 2 yr old level. She is on Depo Provera inj. to "stop" that time of month due to the seizures that are promoted from the hormone changes. When she was 16 yrs. old she had a 5 lumps in her breast and we thought that the injection was a problem. We took a "holiday" from the med for several yrs. without incident. We then reintroduced the med. due to szr. activity increased immensely. Now we sit with a 3 inch mass in her breast. It has 3 sections in it. When the med is due it increases in size as though it is searching for the "drug". Med given it goes down to 2 1/2 in.

    She can't tell me it hurts but she moans and I have seen her laying there with hand on breast like it may cause some issue.

    Help me decide what to do....Mom at wits end and very worried about what to do?
  • Will i gain weight taking 300 mg wellbutrin, 60mg of adderall, and 300mg of lamictal?
    Hi, I take 300 mg of lamictal, 60 mg of adderall, and 1/2 -2 mg of klonopin a day. My Dr just added 300 mg of wellbutrin to the mix. My body is so prone to weight gain on many medications and I'm concerned that adding the wellbutrin may do this. When he I.creased my dose of lamictal 2 months ago, I began losing weight. Approximately 25 lbs as of now. It was much needed. I am 5'6" and now weigh 155 lbs which is great for me. However, I'm worried that adding another med may cause me to gain. Any advice please?
  • What effects will the depo shot have on abilify and depakote er
    I have been bleeding vaginally for the last month non stop and I understand that birth control pills will regulate it but at the same time will interfere with the medicine that I take. I am scared to get an IUD and was wondering what other alternatives do I have.

  • Librium 25mg and wellbutrin 300mg for >1 month
    I've been taking librium twice daily, morning and night, for about 3 months now along with wellbutrin XL in the morning. I've basically had the mood of "I don't care" and a great boost in confidence.
  • Melixacam and depression
    For herniated disc I was prescribed meloxicam . I experienced nausea, dizziness, and overwhelming depression. By the evening it had worn off and it did nothing for my pain and perhaps even increased my aching pain. Several months later I tried it again and had the same reaction. I was not taking any other medication with it. I do not suffer from depression and I am an active upbeat person.
  • Amitriptyline involuntary eye movements
    I've began having sparatic involuntary eye movements a few days after I started taking amitriptyline. It's not faint either, it's like my eye is having a seizure, emabrassing. Just wanted to share.
  • Faslodex driven hell
    I have metastatic breast cancer...which has spread to my bones. Needless to say...I'm not a happy camper. Faslodex was my oncologist’s drug of choice for me. I've been on it since July 28, 2014....My first month was loading dosage...and each month that has followed I receive two injections in my tush...250mg each...for a total of 500mg monthly. Tomorrow, Monday November 17, 2014, will be my third round...not including the month of loading. As per my PET scan one month ago...the Faslodex has not started working. From everything I have been told...and read...it takes four to even six rounds to start working...if in fact it works at all.....@%^&*@#...says it all...if ya know what I mean.

    What has kicked in from Faslodex...are some horrific side effects......About a month ago...I started having a strange little cough...dry...most of the time.....At times the cough becomes uncontrollable for aprox 15 / 20 minutes...then calms. NOTHING works at relieving it...although I suck down water like it is my last drink on earth...and use a wonderful...soothing throat drop, Halls Breezers...Cool Berry...which eases me...even if it is only psychologically, it is magical. The cough has gotten considerably worse over time...and for those that don't know me...I am sure they think I smoke ten packs a day. My voice is also affected at times due to the cough. My breathing is horrific...and I can no longer walk for any length of time...or for more than a short distance.....Nor can I walk and talk without coughing...and or losing my breath. Stamina...this I have none of!!! And this past week...the shit hit the fan.....Joining the cough...are bone and joint pains...as well as muscle pain. When I called my doctor...@ Sloan Kettering...I spoke with the nurse...and she had not a damn clue as to what might help. As a matter of fact...she told me that she has never heard of any of the side effects that I am now having. WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE???? EVERYTHING!!! However...when I check reputable sites...I find not a few...but hundreds of other people with the same side effects.

    From what I have read on all the sites...the only way "WE" are going to get help with issues like these...is by sharing with one another. Not one of the individuals that I speak of has had any positive help with their side effects from their doctors. Am I pissed off??? You bet I am. As for depression...that only comes in small doses for me.....like yesterday...when my body hurt me so badly...my cough was out of control...I had difficulty breathing...and I could not stand on my own two feet without holding on. That moment in time has passed...but for how long??? What will I be hit with next??? When???
  • Adderall xr 30 mg and peripheral neuropathy
    I have been taking adderall xr 30 mg for the past five years, with some breaks. I started showing symptoms of peripheral neuropathy the second year. This year (my 5th year on adderall) has been the worst and most difficult for my peripheral neuropathy. I also suffer from major depressive disorder and HSV, and I have heard that both of them may be related to peripheral neuropathy.
