I have Sciatica, Spondeliosis, Degenerative Disc Disease and Fibromyalgia in both my hips & legs, I have had 3 sets of nerve blocker injections that did not help. I had a herniated disc, in my lower back, (scar tissue has entrapped nerve in it), intractable back pain, I have been falling a lot at home or if I am out somewhere. I get very confused and short term memory is really getting bad which is a symptom of Fibromyalgia, I don't want to go anywhere, I rarely see my friends. I feel like my feet and legs are running and my body is not catching up. I have also last year had left shoulder surgery for small tear in rotator cuff, bone spurs leaning on rotator cuff, osteoarthritis and fluid around the arthritis, 1 month after this surgery: I have what feels like electricity shocks ...

Bactrim Side Effects
89 Replies RSS
I am curious if anyone else has had any of these side effects from taking bactrim. My mouth is so swollen with blisters all inside my mouth.....now it has started to affect my private area as well with same symptoms. I cant eat and it burns all day long. I only took 4 pills when this started. Please help if you can. ## Rhonda, I have exactly the same reaction to this drug. Blisters on the lips, very sore tongue and blisters on genital area. ## Hi Rhonda,what is the dose you are taking and it would be to your benifit to ask your doctor for a different medication or if it were me I would only take half a dose at a time every 4 to 6 hours. ## I am not sure if you are going to get a response, since this post was made in 2007. However, these reactions do happen to some people and in such ins...

naproxen shelf life
1 Reply RSS
Purchased ALEVE 12 Hours Softgel Caps in February 2013. Still good? ## Hello, Shirley! How are you? What is the expiration date on the package? You should always go by that, because medications do tend to lose effectiveness over time and the gel caps may actually turn bad, so if they are expired, you should just dispose of them. The FDA classifies this medication as a NSAID and lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach irritation and increased risk of bleeding.

Help with severe back pain, can I do it online?
1 Reply RSS
Hey! I'm wondering if it's possible for me to get a prescription online, so I wanna try some things. The medicine I'm interested in getting is Oxycontin/Oxycodone. ## Hello, Arkana! How are you? No, it is not possible or legal. In order to have such a medication prescribed, you must be evaluated by a doctor and monitored on a regular basis, while taking it. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Have you consulted your regular doctor for assistance?

Clonidine - how long does it take to work
1 Reply RSS
I went to the doctor for an unrelated issue. BP was high 200/95. Might be situational but she had me start a regime of .1mg of Clonidine 2 times per day. Took the first one at 7pm. BP was normal at 6 am. Can it work that fast or was my high BP situational? ## Hello, Scoop! How are you? Clonidine is known to work well and fast, but it wouldn't take it down to normal that fast, so it could be that your elevated blood pressure was situational. However, regardless of that, you do need to take something to prevent it going that high in the future, because that's a very dangerous level to hit that creates the risk of heart attack or stroke, unless your doctor okays your stopping it. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Clonidine as possibly including nausea, dizziness, dry mouth ...

clindamycin, hot flashes, sweating
1 Reply RSS
Can Clindamycin cause mild hot flashes, and feeling of sweating? I looked at side effect list and it is not listed. ## Hello, Bec! How are you? Yes, it's normal for most medications to cause those types of symptoms and very commonly reported. The FDA lists the other side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. If it gets too severe, you should have things checked out by your doctor. Is there anything else I can help with?

naproxen 500 with acetami/codein 300-600 mg
1 Reply RSS
I took my naproxen at 4: o'clock pm can I take acetami/ codein with no side effects. I am health my arthritis have me in pain. ## Hello, Sally! How are you? I'm very sorry that you're in pain. I believe you meant to ask if there were any possibly dangerous interactions, or contraindications and, if that is the case, no there aren't any listed that I could find, but it's always best to double check such information to be sure. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?

started birth control on second day of period, it stopped
1 Reply RSS
so I started birth control (sprintec) the second day I got my period. I started it Saturday night and took it the next morning (Sunday) when I woke up. I went tubing that day and had my period the whole day like normal. then the next day I did not bleed much it was that awkward brown sort of thing and then I completely stopped bleeding a couple days after that. I'm on the "placebo" week of my first pill pack. I'm about to take my 3rd pill of my placebo week and I still haven't gotten my period. is it my body just getting use to taking this pill?? ## Hello, Sarah! How are you? Yes, it's most likely due to your body getting used to the hormones in it. You can experience such irregularities for the first 3 months, or so. Other side effects, as listed by the FDA, may...

ZUBSOLV 5.7

i was on subutex 8mg and ive been reading about these new subutexs with the 8 and the arrow on them. i got a different kind there zubsolv 5.7 mg/1.4 mg ? i dont understand is one of these pills equal to a 8 mg? there small white round tablet imprinted with 5.7 on the front? ## Subutex contains just the narcotic Buprenoprhine as the active ingredient, so an 8mg tablet of it contains that much of the Buprenorphine… Where the Zubsolv is actually an equivalent to Suboxone, because it contains the Buprenorphine (in this case 5.7mgs) and Naloxone (in this case 1.4mgs). Learn more Subutex details here. Learn more Suboxone details here. So no, they aren't equal to the 8mg Subutex tablets. This medication is a narcotic opiate, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause s...
