Cosentyx and weight gain

Anybody taking Cosentyx experienced weight gain? ## Hello, John! How are you? As reported by the FDA, it is usually known to cause weight loss, as a side effect. You may also experience nausea, fever, headache and stuffy nose. Can anyone else that's been on it chime in with their experiences? ## Cosentyx gives me a full feeling with very little food and feels like it takes longer to digest. I am only on my 4th week of use. I am overweight and this is a positive, for now. ## 8 month user & over weight. Yes, Cosentyx causes weight loss. Less of an appetite, little food and you feel full. And...difficulty swallowing, indigestion, lethargy and hair loss. ## I'm getting ready to start this medicine. I was just reading a forum where everyone said they gained 20lbs plus. But to hea...

can you take other pain medications wiht this perscription? ## can you take indomethacin and percocet? ## It is not generally advised, Indomethacin is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory and Percocet contains Acetaminophen, which is also a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, thus combining the two is not necessary and could be dangerous, as you could overdose. You can read more about Indomethacin here: and Percocet: Is there anything else I can help you with? ## I am in AGONY! When I started taking indomethacin it worked like a charm!!! But now if I take one for a migraine it immediately gets worse, even with ice over my eyes while sleeping. When I wake up it feels like I have been hit in the face with a brick!!!!! I dont want to take this anymore... Any remedies or suggestions????

doctors who are willing to prescribe oxy for fibromyalgia and arthritis

I have severe fibromyalgia and arthritis. I am in severe pain most of the time with no relief. ## Hello, Sherri! How are you? If you require such a medication for the long-term ongoing treatment of pain, you'll need to see a pain management specialist, due to the new directives set forth by the DEA last year. Most general practitioners aren't going to want to take the risk of prescribing it. Do you currently have a PCP that could refer you to someone? If so, that might be the quickest and easiest way to find the help you need. The FDA lists this medication as being 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. What is your general location? This information might en...

will meloxicam show up on a drug test

Will meloxicam 15 mg show up on a drug test? Thank you ## only the drugs a drug test is testing for can show up - eg marijuana, cocaine. it is unlikely a drug like Meloxicam, used for arthritis, would show. however, if it is being abused, the side effects may signal an alarm to someone that something is not right. ## No, it will not. Meloxicam is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory. ## Anybody gaining weight from taking this Mobic 15mg? ## I have a drug test for the military in about two weeks, I take my boyfriends meloxicam for my back at work because I am a server and I never sit down really unless its dead shift. Will it show up on a military blood drug test? PLEASE GIVE ME SOME ADVICE! ## All I've ever know it showing up for is benzodiazepine once in a while ## It can show up depen...

mazon cream

for eczema, psoriasis- seeping, cracking, blistering skin- I personally used it from the age of 6 mos. in 1955 to 1988, then it disappeared from shelves- it was an over the counter cream and it really worked. At the age of 3 months my skin would swell, crack and seep a clear liquid- a pediatrician introduced the cream to my mother and at the time they had a bar soap, shampoo and cream-of which I used occasionally over the course of 30 years then all of a sudden it disappeared. I did have part of a jar I used sparingly and guarded with my life and I called the company that made the cream and they said that they took the recipe out of circulation. The jar is long gone- sadly and I do not know the name of the pharmaceutical company that originally made it. I now am entering menopause and m...

Flexim plus tablet uses

Is it a good treatment for arthritis pain? ## I am feeling back pain and body so I need pain medication for my RA . ## According to a related thread about Flexim Plus, this medicine contains "Paracetamol, Diclofenac and Methocarbamol, so it is a muscle relaxant and pain reliever." ## Hello Corline young McKnight, Reportedly flexim contains Methocarbamol and acetaminophen. The methocarbamol acts as a muscle relaxant and a central nervous system depressant while the acetaminophen acts as an anti-inflammatory and pain killer. It is important to understand that while this medicine can help relieve the pain of your arthritis it will not in any way aid in curing the underlying problems. I wasn't able to find the drug schedule of this medicine in Jamaica and thus I can only recomme...

Where can i buy Artridol?

I need to know where to buy it? ## Can people still order Artidol or is it not available anymore? ## I would like to be able to help you out, but there's a lot of mixed information online about this medication. Each reference stating it to be something different than what the last one said it was. Apparently the ingredients are different depending on who or where you get it from; although each brand of this has the same purpose for helping your joints and arthritis, etc. What I found out was, If the medication is manufactured by Merck; then it contains: Phenylpropyl Salicylate + Hydroxymethoxu Ethyl Benzoate Additionally, a post here on this site states that Artridol contains the active ingredient Glucosamine, which is a supplement claimed to help with joint health. Another post on ...

Manteca Maslac Availability

Manteca Maslac is available through Amazon, who ships internationally from what I understand. They charge $11.00 for the product + $4.49 for shipping (at least in the US). Looks like only 2 are left in stock at the timing of my post, but if they sell out I would check back periodically. Hope this helps! {affiliate link added}

Watson 853 vs M367

Hello I been on watson 853 for many years from walgreens but this past few months I notice they don’t work at all just sleepy? And I went to refill at Walgreens this month and They changed to m367 and they don’t help my pain at all. More sleepy and no relief from my pain. Anybody has any ideas? I don’t think I can return them. I use them for Headaches, Pituitary Brain Tumor, Lupus, and severe arthritis. And a few other health issues!! ## No, in most cases you can't return them, due the risk of tampering, once they leave the pharmacy, although there are some that will make exceptions to help a patient. Drowsiness can be a normal side effect of this medication, according to FDA reports, other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and consti...

Charlote Arthritis Mexican pain pill

My wife, age 84, had arthroscopic surgery on her knee 15 years ago with little benefit. Lately she has had the rooster shots with no benefit. A few days ago she was in agony and friend gave her "Charlote Arthritis" pills from Mexico. The relief was almost instantaneous. She takes two per day and is pain free. The list ingredients are: oak, white willow, magnesium, chamomile, and one item, about 7 letters, too blurred to read. ## Where or how can I get some. I have taken them for my Lupus symptoms and it is an all day relief of pain that nothing else has been able to provide. I cannot find them anymore since the person who used to get them is no longer available. ## El Centro Super Center, Nuevo Progresso, Tamp, MX Hurry before Trump screws up everything and closes the border. ##...

Arthrexin and dizziness

Hi, my husband has been taking Arthrexin for gout in his feet for about a year now. He only takes it when the gout flares up however everytime he takes it it causes him severe dizziness. The dizzy spells incapacitate him and the only thing he can do is go to bed. One doctor said this was normal and another said it wasn't and I can't find any reviews where other people have experienced the same. What's your thoughts? ## Arthrexin contains the active ingredient Indemethacin, which is a potent nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory used to treat pain, fever, and swelling. Dizziness, drowsiness, stomach irritation, and headache can be normal side effects of it as documented by MedlinePlus. However, it is unusual for it to be that severe. Is he on any other medications? Has he had the ca...
