Dystonia rare muscle disorder

Readers, I an 69 years old and drew the black bean for a rare neurological disorder called Dystonia (you may want to Google the word to find more information how it affects maybe 3 out of 10,000 people. Anyway, it is specifically targets the neck, eyes, jaw, tongue or other body parts. My case is the Cervical that targets neck muscles to spasm(tighten) on their own. Imagine a permanent "crick" in your neck. Hard to turn pulls in different directions. Some cases disfigure and others are mild. My main reason for the background information is to report a tremendous worsening of the spasms and pulling head in different directions after receiving the Prolia injections. I read where muscles spasms, twitches is one of the many side effects. Because I already have a serious muscle probl... ...

amit keta cream

Are there side effects to using this cream? ## Hello, Drew! How are you? A topical cream that combines Ketorolac, which is an NSAID, and Amitriptyline, which is a TCA, is most commonly used for pain relief. Since it is used topically, the FDA lists the most common side effects as being related to that and they may possibly include skin burning, redness and rash. This should not be taken internally, it is for topical use, only. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

chlamydia/gonorrhea

Will 500mg penicillin vk cure both said infections? And how many if so should i take? ## Hello, Drew! How are you? Have you seen a doctor to verify that you have such infections? Penicillin is generally not the preferred antibiotic to treat either infection. According to the NIH, the preferred one for Chlamydia is Azithromycin or Doxycycline and for Gonorrhea, it's usually Ceftriaxone. Thus, you should see your doctor to get the right medication.

find a doctor that prescribes methadone for pain so il

a doctor that prescribes methadone for pain in southern il ## Hello, Drew! How are you? I'm sorry, but there is no listing of doctors according to what they will or will not prescribe that I can refer to for you. Additionally, asking for a specific medication will make most doctors suspicious and they won't want to prescribe anything. Do you currently have a PCP that could refer you to someone? That would probably be the easiest way to find the help you need. This is 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. ## I am a 32 year old male that was recently in a very bad car accident and has had issues in the past with narcotics. I need to find a Dr in il that will p... ...

Ive been on 160mg of methadone for 2 years but i cant Feel it at all, if i switch to subutex will i feel Them? ## @drew, According to The National Alliance of Advocates for Buprenorphine Treatment (naabt.org), it is recommended that patients slowly reduce their Methadone dosage down to 30mgs for a period of at least a week, BEFORE attempting to discontinue it completely - AND THEN waiting at least 36 hours before starting Buprenorphine. They also go on to emphasize that patients "MUST" be in a mild to moderate state of withdrawal before taking their first dose of Buprenorphine. That said, I would just encourage you to follow these protocols down to the 'T' as well as asking your doctor for their opinion in case minor adjustments need to be made to fit your specific situa... ...

xarelto weight gain when does it stop?

I have gained about 40 pounds in 8 months, I don't attribute all of that to xarelto, however I work out pretty vigorously, and after seeing the posts, I'm sure it has had an effect. How long does it take Xarelto to fully leave your system? ## Hello, Drew! How are you? Yes, many people have reported weight gain on Xarelto. The FDA lists its other typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and easy bruising. How long will you be taking it? It only takes 25 to 54 hours, so not very long, once you stop it, but make sure to do so under your doctor's supervision. ## Hi Verwon....I was on a trail case study, where Bayer is testing using lower dose Xaerlto versus low aspirin or a combination of both. Started October 2015, and d... ...

expiration date 10/13 meloxicam

Meloxicam 7.5mg expired 10/13 is it ok to take. Thank you ## Hi Babe! Medications can b expired for years and still b safe 2 take. They may lose their potency, but r safe. ## @Babe, "Most" medications (aside from tetracycline) are still considered safe to take even up to 15 years beyond the expiration date. Harvard Medical School wrote an article about this too, discussing how the US military drew that conclusion after examining stockpiles of old medication. They didn't list the names of any particular drugs, so unfortunately I don't know which medications were used in the study. However, I'd imagine something like Meloxicam with proposed analgesic and fever reducing effects, to be a drug of interest upon making such claims. Would you say was it stored properly all t... ...

Started BC a week before my period was due!

I have never taken BC (Sprintec) before. And I started my first pack a week before my period was supposed to come. And now it is a week into my first pack and I have gotten my period, and I am still taking the active pills. - This is the time of month I would have normally gotten my period if i wouldn't have started BC a week ago. But it concerns me because I have my period while taking the ACTIVE pills. Is this normal? And will it correct itself, so I get my period when I take the inactive pills in the future? ## Hello, Drew! How are you? It is normal to have irregular bleeding for the first 3 months, while your body is getting used to the hormones in the oral contraceptives. Eventually, things should balance out and you'll get your period only during the week of the inactive p... ...

White Round RMB pill

White Round pill with R M B printed on one half of one side (the rest is blank) with a little divider divot underneath it. The letters seem slightly spaced apart with the M being slightly higher printed than the R and B. Got it in Macao from a doctor for having canker sores on my throat along with two other pills: Amoxy 500 capsule (maroonish on one half that has the words printed and a blank dark yellow half), and a small, oval, orange pill that both sides of CP stamped on the upper half and a funny looking L (where the end of the bottom part of the L is slightly curved up as if someone drew a comma too close to it) with a divot separating the CP and L. Was instructed to take the first two (1) three times a day, with the orange oval one being (2) three times a day. I can only assume th... ...
