Prograf helps patients who have had a liver/kidney transplant protect their new organ and prevent it from being rejected by the body. This medicine can cause the amount of potassium in your blood-stream to increase. For this reason you should avoid large amounts of foods that have a high potassium content, for example dried fruit, bananas, tomatoes and low sodium salt, while you are taking this medicine, also avoid potassium supplements. I had a bad reaction from eating these foods.

I should add that I am on Prednisone and Diclofenac. The only blood work result that I have is the positive ANA, everything else always comes back fine.
The doctor said the carotid artery was inflamed and prescribed a nine day course of prednisone. I started the prednisone tonight along with 3 advil and the pain is already much, much better. My doctor told me that there is an 80% chance this treatment will resolve the problem, but there was a 20% chance that it might return and I might need another course of prednisone. The little bit of reading I have done so far seem to point to a viral cause.
I just found out today that i have osteoarthritis in my lower back, with spurs and degenerative disc disease. i thought that was probably the problem because of the arthritis in my right hand. the dr told me that steroid injections can cause bone thinning. i have had them in the past and they helped me, but no-one told me about the danger of thinning the bones. now i have to have special xrays to see if there is already damage from the past injections.
My current regimen is Humira 1wk., Leflunomide 1day and tapering off of Prednisone. But guess what?? I'm still in a lot of pain in my L/elbow and some pain in R/hand and wrist. I have come to doubt I actually have RA. Perhaps I have some weird unknow disease not known to the medical community. HELP!!!!!!!
I am also on prednisone and before the prednisone I was on diclofenac. But nothing is working. I am just getting worse. The doctor I just seen yesterday says that I have cartilage building up in my chest and its not stopped. I have a ping pong ball sized lump in the bottom of my chest in the center on my sternum. It goes all the way up but not as bad. The ER doctor said I needed to see an orthopedic. That they need to give me injections.
I just want to be armed with something to ask for instead of my dr. giving me narcotics..and unfortunately I feel like they stick to certain things and I want to know from the people that take different things..thanks again..enjoy your coffee..
Went to my regular doctor and he gave me mobic and prednisone. I felt back to normal on the prednisone. Once it was over, the pain and stiffness was back. Mobic by itself didn't help. Went back to Dr. and be prescribed diclofenac. He also did an RA test and an ANA. Both were negative. I know from previous genetic testing that I have the anticardiolipin antibody. Can you have Lupus with a negative ANA?
- Fluticasone 50mcg*4 shots/day - alleviates the running nose a lot, but still need a kleenex every 30 mins or so, and no sense of smell. This is the doc-approved thing to use. - Prednisone 10mg/day - WORKS! At least when the weather is hot (been taking it for 6 days: 3*20mg, 3*10mg). Prednisone makes all symphtoms dissapear most of the time.
he said we dont have corticosteroids pills right now in the hospital pharmacy and tetracosacide injections will cause the same affect of the corticosteroids pills and they are more safer . i have done some research and i discovered that many doctors are giving corticosteroids pills to their bell's palsy patients , and are giving a vitamin B as injections . so what should i do right now . should i take that drugs , or see another doctor ?? regards . Mr.

During the time I have had these symptoms I have been diagnosed with hypothyroidism and TMJ. Nothing has shown up in my bloodwork thus far. I have been taking sulfasalazine and diclofenac for several months and recently my rheumatologist tried a 50mg dose of prednisone for 5 days. My symptoms continued so I stopped taking the pred. Many people have suggested fibromyalgia but I can only come up with about 9-10 trigger points, not the required 11.
Have only got very mild pustular psoriasis on hands and feet and didnt know what it was for years until the arthritis came along. Humira would be one of the treatments for it anyway and I find diclofenac helpfull for pain and soreness.
This does not happen when I am busy during the day. These vibrations cause palpitations and are at times severe at bedtime and does not allow me to sleep. Sometimes I wake up at around 3am or 5am from sleep with these same shocks / vibrations / pulsating vibrations. If they continue then I am not able to get back to sleep. I take aspirin 81mg and tranquilizer Xanax 0.5mg but I still have difficulty falling asleep. I have also taken EKG and it is normal.
NSAIDs presently on the market that have been frequently associated with liver injury are aspirin (ASA), diclofenac (Voltaren), and sulindac (Clinoril). Ibuprofen (Motrin) has been reported to cause severe liver injury in people with hepatitis C. It is recommended that people with liver disease avoid using all NSAIDs.
The other day, I bumped into something with my shin, and it created a dent that took hours and hours to go away, and yet the dent was quite deep, almost 1/2 inch. I've been on 100mg MS Contin 3x daily, Vicodin for breakthrough pain, and then anti-nausea drugs because they both make me violently ill. I guess what I'm wondering, is whether my symptoms ARE what the first doctor suggested? I've never heard of this before.
They prescribed Prednisone (60/40/20mg for 3 days each) and Lortab-5 (1-2 every 6hrs as needed), and recommended I see a doctor soon after I get home (I have an appointment for Wednesday.) A day later it seems to be helping, the swelling is going down (slowly) and the pain is greatly diminished. BUT, a few hours after I take the pills, I experience a kind of 'crash', fatigue, gravelly voice/sore eyes/headache as if I'm up past my bedtime, followed by nausea (and yesterday, vomiting).

It was on 31st Aug I was referred. I had blood drawn and xrays and was sent home with doxycyline, prednisolone and diclofenac. After a week or two the arthritis started to get better but I was still tired all the time. The discharge letter said that they were waiting for the serological test for Lyme but this could take 3 weeks. After 4 I called and they said they didnt have them.
only 70% of taste and smell; cystic acne that has progressively moved down my back and chest -a little bit of sweets or fats seem to make it worse.
Hello Jack, This is a very good question. There are many medications that are ototoxic to our ears causing hearing loss and tinnitus, some have permanent effects while others have side effects only while taking the medication. On your particular list, Asprin stands out the most. Asprin does cause hearing los & tinnitus as do most of the NSAIDS (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs).
I am on a nebulizer, 4 x's a day. Gerds and larynx spasm have been mentioned and meds have been given for this. That was on the a week ago. The coughing is not making me weeze as much now, but is still extreme and causing a great deal of pain in my ribs and chest. I also have Scleroderma, so I'm wondering if the esophagus may be involved, since it seems to be coming from the upper area and not the lungs. Any suggestions?
Pain meds do not control the pain, either over the counter or prescribed and the stiffness in hips and knees and feet is affecting my balance. I asked if continues joint destruction would occur if I stopped the anti-inflammatory meds and he replied "no". I am under the impression that it is the inflammatory process that causes the destruction of the joint. Who is correct ? Thanks !

Lar- I used to be on prexige (cox2), but it was recalled by Helath Canada because it can cause liver damage. My Rheum switched me to diclofenac, and prednisone. It helps, but I'm having a bad flare right now, so my doc may try me on thalomide (sp?). We're also looking into the imminosuppressive drugs that treat MS. I was treated with low dose chemo a year ago, but it didn't help at all. Are you on any of the imminosuppressive drugs? Has your rheumatoligist gone over any of these with you?

People who are also taking corticosteroids (such as prednisone), or anticoagulants (such as coumadin) may have and increased risk of complications from NSAIDs. Finally, people with liver disease who smoke cigarettes or drink alcohol should avoid NSAIDs as they are also at increased risk for its complications. Cheers!
