I also take Lamictal (Lamotrigine)and have done so for 20 months - in my case for the control of epileptic seizures. Whilst it has done the trick for epilepsy, I have developed a side effect of taking this drug. The side effect is the inflammation of the upper airways for which I have to take a reliever (Ventolin) and preventer (Clemil) to help with my breathing. This condition has also affected my running for which I must ensure that I take the reliever 15 minutes before the run. The condition also affects the whole muscle system. This is not a typical side effect as noted in the medication leaflet and my hospital consultant has initiated a wider search to see if Lamioctal does in fact cause this side effect.

  • Can long-term methadone use cause or increase the risk of colon cancer?
    I had a two-level spinal fusion at L4-S1 in 2000 after being injuried at work in Sept. 24, 1997. I lost everything after...the unjury, ability to do my job, my wife and family (couldn't take the strain) my home, my sense of self and purpose, direction and rating and ability to pay my bills.
    After a long period of waiting to settle my workmens' comp. case, I returned home, from the Bat Area back to Arizona to take of my mother with a yet un dianosed case of moderate dementia.
    Then, in 2011 I had a 2nd surgery to relieve spinal stenosis btwn. L2-L4, just above the fusion site.
    I've been taking methadone since early 2004, a little over ten years, now. I've had high blood pressure since my injury.

    Now, I waiting to be scheduled for a colonoscopy, with my father having had polyps and the way I've been feeling..drained, tired all the time, and stomach pains ( in addition to my chronic low back pain), I...

  • After being on zoloft (sertraline) for 19 years, i now notice multiple side effects and i want to get off (2 answers)
    I have been on Zoloft (sertraline) for 19 years for chronic depression. When I first started taking Zoloft, it made a huge positive impact on my life. It was a miracle drug for me. I believe it saved my life.

    Ten or so years ago it suddenly stopped working. My doctor had me try several other SSRIs-- Paxil, Prozac, Celexa. None worked. After a few months I went back on Zoloft and like magic it worked again.

    Six or so years ago, I wanted to get off sertraline to see if I could live without it. I made the mistake of dropping it cold turkey and not consulting my doctor. I experienced the infamous "brain zaps," vivid and violent dreams, anxiety, anger, and depression. On the other hand, I had more energy, lost weight, slept great, and had increased libito/more satisfying sexual response. Still, my anxiety and anger were intense. My family rightfully became fed up with my unpredictable behavior and after several weeks I started taking the medication again. Life returned to normal.

    Over the last several years I have experienced tinnitus, sexual dysfunction, weight gain, night sweats, and diarrhea. I am occasionally anxious or depressed, but nothing severe or unmanageable. The tinnitus has become particularly pronounced over the last several weeks. I am not certain that these symptoms are related to sertraline, but I would like to find out. I would like to stop taking sertraline once again. I know that I must taper off very slowly. I also plan to do so under the supervision of my general practitioner.

    My questions are many. Has anyone else been on sertraline for as long as 19 years and successfully quit? Is there a drug that will help soften the sertraline withdrawal symptoms? Should I be unable to quit sertraline, are their other SSRIs that might have fewer side effects? Should I do this with my GP's help or should I seek the help of a psychiatrist?

    Thanks in advance for your responses.
  • People with statin drug damage (3 answers)
    Have been on disability for 18 months. Can not walk to car without being fatigued. Have lots of nerve pain. On a lot of Pain meds an they don't always work. I was told this one won't do that an this one won't do that. The one that put me over the edge was Zetia. My doctor's don't know what to do or how to even talk to me. They are scared to try to help me or even write down what they say. My Neurologist said he don't understand why I'm still hurting you haven't taken a statin in 18 months. What a fool. I see no hope of getting over this and am very disappointed that the medical establishment an no interest in trying to help. They sure were interested in giving me the damn things. They never said this was caused by statins. THEY DON'T KNOW. They are very uneducated in this.

I would settle for just a decent, less painful stream.

  • Why is it taking so long for my inr to return to 2.5-3.0? (1 answer)
    I had my aortic valve (bicuspid) replaced in 1975, apparently had 2 silent heart attacks and was diagnosed with CHF in 2005 and had an ascending aortic aneurysm repair and aortic valve replaced in 2008.

    A few weeks ago, I went off the coumadin and on Pradaxa prior to having a cervical epidural injection. After the procedure, I went back on my normal dose of coumadin (7.5mg/daily) but 10 days later, my INR was still at 1.1. I went back on the Pradaxa and increased the coumadin to 10mg/daily for the past 4 days but am still only at 1.7. I can't remember ever having this much trouble getting my INR back to the proper range of 2.5-3.0. Anyone have any ideas what's causing it to be so slow returning???

  • Can humira cause a tremor and neurological symtems (1 answer)
    I have had hypertension for approximately 15 Years which the doctors and cardiologist have struggled to get under control, I have been taking 6 medications daily. My weight over the past 15 years has been constantly around 16 stones 7 lbs, over the last 4 months I have dieted and managed to drop my weight to 14 stones 4 lbs, my G.P. has firstly dropped my Ramipril 10mg to 5mg & also my Amlodopine the same, I have come off Benzoflumazide altogether, so things are truly looking good on this front.

    Just over 7 years ago I was diagnosed with Pulmonary Sarcoidosis & Rheumatoid Arthritis very close together which are both autoimmune diseases and was prescribed a high dose of steroids and later Methotrexate, my health deteriorated to a stage where I could not get about or even turn my wrist to wipe my own bottom. At this point I was prescribed Humira Anti-TNF alpha drug which has up to now been fantastic it was life changing as it gave me my life back and allowed me to work as I am a self-employed Stone Carver & Letter Cutter. Over the past 20 years I have had a Hand Tremor that I have always blamed on my long use of vibrating air tools, but over the past month or so I have developed a more noticeable Hand Tremor where food is falling off my fork, hand writing has become eligible, I am pressing double digits on my IPad, and I am struggling to hold my chisel hand steady to Letter Cut, worst of all, my Rheumatologist has take me off my Humira because of the Tremor and protocol says this should be done until my condition is identified, which may put me back to square one, prior to this my tG.P. had arranged for me to see a Neurologist who I have not yet seen.

    Can anybody tell me if Humira is the likely neurological cause of my tremor ?

  • I've been on effient for 2.5 years with virtually no problems other than bruising. dr switched me to plavix for lower cost. i would like to know medically if this is a good decision (1 answer)
    I have been doing well taking Effient for 2.5 years since my heart attack in January, 2011. My cardiologist recently changed me to clopidogrel which I've been on for three days. I never experienced tiredness on effient, which I am experiencing now. The only side effect of Effient that I experienced is bruising and small bleeds. Bottom line: 1. Is effient safer for me knowing that it didn't seem to give me any side effects for 2.5 years? 2. could plavix be causing the tiredness? 3.I had no genetic testing for Plavix: is this a potential problem? Even though it costs more, I do have insurance and I would rather go back to effient if clopidogrel causes side effects I didn't have with Effient, and may also cause potential life threatening events peculiar to clopidogrel.
