Diacerein Side Effects

can a patient suffering from diabetese, blood pressure, kidney malfunction (creatine3.2,urea 105, potasium 4.7) with knee problem take diacerein (100gm) daily. if not whagt is the alternative. is it necessary to avoid taking diacerein when suffering from kidney malfunction.kindly advice ## Diacerein can be used by people with kidney problems that have decreased function, but your doctor does have to carefully consider the dosage. Normally they should only prescribe half the amount that they would for people that don't have kidney problems. Decreased kidney function causes the drug to reach higher plasma concentrations in the body and to be processed out much slower. Has your doctor prescribed this and is that same doctor aware of your kidney problem? ## What are the side effects of ...

Accutane and Infertility
603 Replies RSS
I took accutane almost 14 years ago as a teenager. I am now a 32 year old woman who has just been diagnosed with infertility that they believe is linked to autoimmune issues. I truly believe that accutane is the cause of this; from the research that I have done it seems that accutane has been linked to other thyroid-related diseases, but that they have not yet been able to prove a link between accutane and infertility. There are, however, actually more people like me out there than I originally thought. Being diagnosed with ovarian dysfunction has been a horrific, horrific blow. And while there was plenty of information about accutane and birth defects, no one ever mentioned a possibility of future infertility. I was a teenager! This is a tragedy and I believe something should be done a...

what is betametasona clotrimazol gentamicina cream used for
22 Replies RSS
I live in San Antonio, Texas. Is this cream available in the States? Is it SAFE? ## @ERQ, The combination of Betametasona + Clotrimazol + Gentamicina is marketed towards treating various skin conditions such as pain, inflammation, itching, bacterial/fungal infections, etc. From what I've seen mentioned in another thread here, this cream is allegedly available with your doctor's prescription here in the US. However further reports suggest that it costs only a fraction of the price down in Mexico for the same ointment (i.e. $30 in the US and less than $2 in Mexico). Given this information, my suggestion would be to just get it prescribed in the US since the cost of driving to Mexico and back from Texas is probably a lot more than the difference you'd end up saving in the price...

accutane long term side effects
1879 Replies RSS
I have a son that took accutane 60 mg a day for six months in a row three years ago. Now after many trips to doctors over strange medical problems, it seems accuatne is the culprit medication that has caused servere joint and muscle pain, severe dry lips, redness in face, eye infections of own immune system attacking itself, systems of osteoarthritis in both shoulders, both wrist and right hand, blood in stool, possible hair loss, abnormal liver function test results in AST and ALT. My son went from being a high school football and track athlete while taking this medication three years ago to someone that is in constant pain just washing a car. After I have researched this drug extensively, I can't believe that the FDA allows this drug originally made for cancer patients to be marke...

autoimmune disorders linked to accutane?

I took accutane in the early 90's when I was in my 20's. I took all but the last "phase" of the prescription. I had no problems with it at the time. The only warning from my dermatologist was don't get pregnant. In 2009 I developed a blood disorder and autoimmune disorder. I have pain in my joints and fatigue. My husband is convinced that it is from accutane. I have had many stays in the hospital because of this. Has anyone else developed these or similar symptoms? ## Hi, yes, I have been diagnosed with multifocal motor neuropathy recently, which is believed to be autoimmune and currently has no cure. I dont know how to stop the damage. My diagnosis means the disease is progressive, and will cause severe disability. ## Sorry to hear about both your experiences coming...

Melas cream usage
2 Replies RSS
Melas should not be used as a skin fairness cream... Melas cream should be used only at night before bed time for 15-20 minutes and then clean your face. And the next day use Melas ultra cream 5-6 times during the day. Note: After you've finished the product use only Melas soap... ## Meals cream is very effective you all should use it. ## Can I still use melas cream for skin whitening if I don't have acne or pimples? Or will it cause side effects?

Hi! Good Day! Im Drix 20 Yrs. Old. This is my first time na magtetake ng pills. Di rin naman ako nagpapacheck up so, i dont know if it is recommended for me.

Can Curam Cure Acne?
2 Replies RSS
My doctor prescribed me Curam 625mg for a toe infection and i was wondering if it would help with the pimples i have on my face and back? ## It is possible, but it depends on what specifically is causing the acne. This is an antibiotic, so it will only help with infections of bacterial origin. The NIH lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash, and diarrhea. Are you on any other medications? ## nope i am not. i'm not very sure about the cause of my acne/pimples either, i've had it for a couple of years now it upsets me.

I've taken Accutane twice, both for 5 months at a time. The first time everything went good, but after 3 months post cycle my acne came back so I hopped back on it. About 1 month post second cycle of Accutane the skin on on the area below my lip and above my chin, and my smile creases are constantly a deep red. It's not dryness and it feels like it's below the skin. No bumps at all. My dermatologist prescribed a foamy steroid that people use for rosacea but it did nothing at all. I'm a year after post Accutane and the problem persists. Any other people have this issue? Help. ## I get Rosacea and what you describe sounds just like it. The worst thing for Rosacea is a Steroid or cortisone. It worsens. You need a Rosacea Gel (kind of antibiotic) and a course of antibiotics....
