brown discharge after periods
1 Reply RSS
I'm having a brown discharge and the doctor gave me doxytet and purbac, but they are making me feel weak and I vomit. What might be wrong? ## The brown discharge is usually due to old blood that wasn't expelled during your last period and it can be normal to experience a few days of it, after your period. Alternatively, you're natural hormonal balance may be off and that may meed rectifying. Have you consulted a gynecologist? The medications you have ben prescribed are classified by the FDA as antibiotics and the side effects you've experience are normal. You may also experience dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea.

Adalat Retard side effects
1 Reply RSS
I have been taking 10mg twice daily for 25 years. My new G.P. has now raised it to 30 mg.once daily after only two high b.p readings. I started with 30 yesterday morning and have felt unwell all day. Also awful headache that I cannot get rid of. I am concerned how long is this going to continue as I have several other health problems. Thanking you. ## Hello, Jane! How are you? All medications carry the risk of causing side effects and it would be normal to experience them again, when the dosage is raised. The FDA lists the ones you've mentioned as being typical for this medication, which contains Nifedipine. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, increased urination and hypotension. It may take 4 to 5 weeks, for the side effects to taper off and go away. If they do not, then you...

help me about this nustrate
1 Reply RSS
Early this year(march) I started using nustrate and stopped using it..I only injected twice....on march and may only....but I still haven't got my period back.....and I want to have a baby, what can I do...what could be the problem? ## Hello Bontle! How are you? It may take a few months for your natural hormones to balance back out and for things to return to normal. If you don't experience a period in the next month, or so, you should consult your doctor to have things checked out. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, PMS-like symptoms and breakthrough bleeding. Is there anything else I can help with?

Alcohol and aubagio
1 Reply RSS
has anyone drank alcohol while taking aubagiohas? ## Hello, Peg! How are you? Generally, it is best to stay away from alcohol, when you are taking any prescription medication, due to the fact that it can greatly increase the side effects as listed by the FDA, so you may experience much more nausea, dizziness and drowsiness than usual. Thus, one drink may affect you the same as having had 2 and so on. If your doctor does approve of your having a couple drinks, please make sure that you will not be driving, or operating and potentially dangerous machinery. Is there anything else I can help with?

Xarelto, Fish Oil & Arginine
1 Reply RSS
Does anyone here take Fish Oil or Vitamin E? My holistic doctor prescribes it, she keeps pushing me to take the fish oil. I will go see her next week, but I've read it can thin your blood so is it safe to take with Xarelto? Also I take Arginine but I showed it to 2 of my doctors and they ok'd it. It's really good for the heart, but it does say on the box don't take it if you've had a heart attack. My chiro is really pushing me to remain on the Fish Oil but it does thin out the blood and so is it safe to continue it? I know my VA doctor a while back put me on fish oil so maybe I should get with her and see what she thinks now that I'm taking Xarelto. ## Hello, Bri! How are you? Yes, fish oil is great for the heart and cardiovascular system and can be taken as long...

Pain Doctor prescribed Effexor XR 37.5 twice a day
2 Replies RSS
Has anybody else been prescribed this medication for hot flashes? I have fibromyglia, CFS, nerve damage in my legs, Osteoarthritis in both knees, herniated disks in my neck, and three bulging disks in my lower back. I also have terrible insomnia. After reading all of the side affects I am afraid to even try it. I am also taking 60mg er mscontin 3 times a day, Valium 10mg 3 times a day, and Xanax 1mg at bedtime for sleep. And D3 2000 iu once a day. Any help would be appreciated. ## Hello, Bettyboob! How are you? Yes, it's actually become very common to prescribe a medication like this for hot flashes and other female hormonal symptoms, since they are not as dangerous a hormonal replacement therapy and usually help with a broad range of symptoms. What side effects have you concerned? ...

Can I use cefraxone and doxycline while I am on zopax0,5,bilocor5 and micardis40/125mg ## Hello, Roselyn! How are you? Yes, it your doctor has prescribed them, you should take them as instructed. It would be far more dangerous to let an infection continue untreated. The FDA lists the typical side effects of these antibiotics as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with?

Has opiate use permanently ruined my enjoyment of alcohol?!
1 Reply RSS
Hi there, I have a strange question that i cant find the answer for. I took Tramadol/Zydol for around 7 months for back pain, ever since i stopped taking it i cannot get the effects of alcohol - e.g the buzz, euphoria. Please note it is NOT a tolerance issue. I can drink and drink until im sick and not feel anything. (it was just to evaluate how much i could drink/prove it wasn't tolerance) I have been in abstinence from Tramadol for about a year now. I'm really worried that I'm permanently damaged. Any help or ideas why this is happening? Thank you ## Hello, Blaine! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem you're having. It's hard to say, the use of medications, as well as time causes our bodies to change, so it may be due to the medications you took, or just a ...

I have been taking for 5days for UTI, now have strapping pain all the time on left slower side Should I stop ## Hello, Rosemarie! How are you? The FDA lists the typical side effects of this antibiotic as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. The pain may be due to the UTI, so it would likely be best not to stop this medication, until you consult your doctor. You can experience such pain, if the infection has spread of worsened. Are you on any other medications?
