Researchers have found that Nattokinase is four times more potent than plasmin, works more effectively than warfarin drugs, and doesn’t produce any side effects. On the other hand, the side effects associated with warfarin (such as Coumadin®) blood thinners are numerous and well documented.
Side effects to inflammation may include temporary hair loss. If severe outbreaks are untreated for extended intervals, permanent hair loss may result, because of damage to hair follicles. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seborrhoeic_dermatitis Soaps and detergents such as sodium laureate sulfate may precipitate a flare-up, as they strip moisture from the top layers of the skin, and the drying property of these can cause flare-ups and may worsen the condition.
Yes, I had the Angina attacks but once the Nitro kicked in and I layed down for an hour (side effects of the Nitro) I was good to go. I am no where good to go anywhere, anymore. AND, now with a problem with the Left Ventricle being osbtructed....All this since the stents. I too fear if the Taxus is causing problems or will cause problems. Too bad these things cannot be removed.
Toprol had the most side effects - out all the beta blockers I took ! the worst being Hair loss - and vision problems and rapid waight ! long term useage also can cause - blood sugar to go high or low.. and can cause diabetes to happen ! the drug makers know this ! yet they push these drugs out on us all - it keeps the doctors pumping more drugs into us for other symptoms ! thus makes $$$ for the drug companys and doctors !

while attempting to place stent in artery running along front of heart, stent became dislodged and lost. Dr. couldn't find it. What are the dangers of this? Side effects? What do we need to worry about now?

I would be interested to know what my antiboties are too but no my antiboties have never been tested. It may be an afterthought now but I asked my opthamologist about it & he said right now the important thing is to get my thyroid back in control to see if it helps my eye disease. I have recently been increased to 3 grains of Armour ( do I understand you to say that is full replacement ?) hopefully that will bring my free T's back into line.
The only side effects I have now are a loss of sensation on my right side (sometimes my right hand feels really hot or really cold) and at times I have a hard time multi-tasking. When I tell people this, they laugh and just say they're the same way, it's just our age. Which irritates me, because I know that's not the case. I just went to my OBGYN, and he told me that I'd be at risk of having another stroke if I were to become pregnant.
In other words my daughter tries to stay away from medications and deal with knees pain because she said the medications have side effects too.She is only 25 y/o and she doesn't have kids yet. Can she have healthy kids? Take care.
does any one suffer from any side effects such as sweating on the side of the face and above the eye also eye twitches!
Also - I have no other symptoms that would indicate Lupus - no joint problems, hair loss, rashes, etc. I truly am beginning to think that its a "head" problem, since blood tests don't seem to correlate too much to symptoms.
I'm no longer scared about driving, being alone, or that I'll convulse in public. One of the side effects of Zonegran is weight loss, which improved the symptoms of my other neurological disorder, Psuedotumor Cerebri. This was causing blindess, but I had an Optic Nerve Sheath Decompression on my right eye to drain excess fluid. I think it's important that one finds a patient (no pun intended), understanding doctor who isn't quick to diagnose and prescribe any "old" drug.
0 mg should not have any noticeable side effects. But, people are different, my experience may not apply to many... I have gone from 200 mg a day down to 100 mg and then down to 50 mg in only a few days. I have also gone from 50 mg to 0 mg without any problems. I'm on 50 mg right now. Try to put it out of your mind, that's what my experience suggests.
The first few days of taking the SSRI sucked big time. The side effects for me were dizziness and confusion, which triggered a couple of panic attacks. The numbness and tingling in my shoulder blade, back of the neck and back of the head got worse and spread to my scalp in general. It was bad, and I was freaking the hell out. So I took the emergency Alprazolam (basically Xanax) they gave me for these types of attacks.
it seemed to get worse and worse. So when I looked at side effects of celebrex on the packaging it said itching...and online it was listed also unusual bruising..So that seemed to explain it..I tried calling the doctor that prescribed it but he didn't call me back and at that point I was to see a different doctor..Finally at this point i stopped taking it and after a week it went away...So i never mentioned it to the doctor...Well now its back...itching...
Thank you for your timely response. My tremors are pretty much localized in my upper body; say, between my waist and my neck. By the way, something I did not mention on my original description is that these tremors are not external. As I pointed out, after they wake me up they last for about an extra 10-15 seconds and they disappeared completely. During these 10-15 second period, I have asked my wife to place her hand on my stomach/chest so she can feel what I am experiencing.
09/15/07 The first diagnosing Neuro recommended Rebif which I declined because of side effects. After I declined Rebif the only thing he said to me on the phone was "well, good luck then". I found all the detailed copies of my LP and Blood tests and have all the MRI pictures here in my home. I took LDN for one year with no improvement in my left sided weakness but I did get an overall sense of well being.
At present, Percocet 2 350 mg tabs every 6 hours. This was causing side effects, Bad headaches in the morning, plus chills like the flu. Otherwise I might have been able to stand it. The pain was there, just lessened it. Tonight, I tried a Banana and glass of Orange Juice like the Ultra Sound Radiologist told me Pregnant women use when experiencing leg cramps and no percocet tonight and just 2 tylenol and if helps a lot. If it is a Parathyroid needing to be removed.
Everything was either normal or something so minor that it can't be the cause. Tried psychotherapy, homeopathy, herbal stuff, anti-depressant (stopped taking it because side effects were horrible). Tried exercising, losing weight, gaining weight, church, praying :) I feel I tried everything there is. I even moved house, partly to see if a change in circumstances would make any difference. Result: there have been months that were better, e.g.
I am also on antibiotics and the doctor told me that if you have infections that are going on untreated you are more likely to have a rapid heart rate. He wants me to see the cardiologist about the pvc's just to be on the safe side. You are not going crazy, you are just like the rest of us. I am still spending time taking my pulse, afraid to go out because what if they happen really hard?
Nonerosive arthritis (tendonitis) is another problem I've experiencing with it, and also liver inflammation. I'm getting neuropathy, hair loss from the limbs, both of which can go along with CREST, as well as liver inflammation showing only on PET scan, but not on the liver enzyme tests. I don't know whether it's connected at all, but my spine is so inflamed that a couple of my cervical vertebrae have spontaneously fused together (spondylitis), and I've developed 5 herniated discs.
) My ex-wife has an uncle who is a physician across the border in Mexico, so I might visit him for a presciption for a blood thinner and stop taking the vitamin E and garlic, unless he says otherwise. I already take 10 mg. of Plavix and 3,000 mg. of garlic a day, so I bought some vitamin E this morning and will take 400 i.u per day as recommended. Time will tell. If anyone has gotten any confirmation from a physician about these symptoms and the possible causes, please post that information.
I also was put on SSRI but did not like the initial side effects and decided not to continue with daily medication management. I do have a script for Ativan to be used sparingly. Good luck with your stress test, I think the best thing you are doing for yourself and your family is to speak with someone professionally. I just want you to know that you are not alone, your physical symptoms are real, once you accept that the symptoms are related to your anxiety, you can move forward.
Up until then, my BP was on the low side...95-110/55-65. Hope you are feeling better. I'm happy to hear your test results are good!! Take care.
I do know there is another drug similar to tamoxifen that has fewer side effects but am not sure what it is called. I agree it is good to be informed. If a doctor does recommend tamoxifen it would be good for you to be able to ask about the side effects and what other choices are available. I wonder if you did a search on "tamoxifen substitutes" if you could come up with the info. Another idea is to post your questions at www.breastcancer.org.
A drop in blood supply everywhere - including the brain - which causes a sudden loss of consciousness. Once our head is lower down (eg. on the bathroom floor!) it's easier for blood to get there thanks to gravity, and we regain consciousness. Since the diarrhea attacks are pretty infrequent, I wouldn't worry too much about them. If I had to hazard a guess, I'd say that there's a clue in what you describe - you pass hard stool first, and then a few minutes later, have diarrhea.
