Avatar f tn Be very careful <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>with</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span>, it is an extremely powerful drug that can can tons of horrible side effects and long term permanent issues. I am still fighting with adrenal problems 3 years after I needed two 5 day tapers in a month, my body and it's stress response probably will never go back to the way it was. You need to get an appointment with a specialist and figure out the root cause of the problem and not just bandaid it with the meds.
Avatar f tn I started thinking that all the Doctors were self medicating <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>with</span> antidepressants so they though everything was fine if you just take this little pill. I know in some cases people do need antidepressants. But I can't believe that was the opinion of every doctor that I saw.
Avatar f tn I am retired and disabled, so I thought if I changed antidepressants I could save over $200/mo, which isn't much to some, but it IS to me. Anyway, the neurologist just prescribed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span> to help <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>with</span> the migraines. I've only taken one dosage(60 mg) last night as it was just called in yesterday. I'm praying this new med works even though it's just for six days. I've never had to deal with this problem.
Avatar m tn everything was falling apart....then I was diagnosed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>with</span> lung sarcoidosis and given <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span> short term....I'm sorry but it was the best week I have had in a long time....yes I became manic but in the depths where I was it was it was a blessing....but now I'm off it and back to feeling emotionally paralyzed....I'm going to talk to my Dr.
446896 tn?1237806342 Whenever I get very anxious I just take a 2mg Valium, it seems to help. But this is me. You might just need something to help you <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>with</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span> and fuoxetine transition. Try to eat a healthy diet and perhaps not a good idea to take any herbal preparation until you are better. I used to take chamomile tea to relax and every time i took it I couldn't breathe, like I had a mini asthma attack. Later on I found out I was indeed allergic to chamomile tea.
Avatar n tn My therapist suggested looking info on different types of meds that help <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>with</span> anxiety, are non-habit forming, and are not in the classification of antidepressants. What do you know about this and do you know of any websites that can help me with this?
Avatar f tn I still have burning skin, pain and joint issues and thought I had it under control <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>with</span> Gabepentin anf tramadol. Now on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span>, as well and the pain in my feet so bad I have to take a pain pill to sleep (Percocet.) I got tests back from the Neurologist showing nerve damage now. Something is damaging the nerves in my limbs. I can't promise you it won't get worse. I may lose my career over this and then I'm not sure what I'll do. There are some people here to help you fight.
Avatar n tn Am desperate for some answers am tired of being told its all normal aches and pains, nothing wrong <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>with</span> you. Take antidepressants/valium god knows what else I have been given but its driving me insane. What ever is going on is cruel and makes it harder not getting a doctor to find answers for me. And doctors do not like to be told that you want certain tests done, its taken 3 years to insist on a Gastro referral from my GP and only got it because had blood in toilet.
Avatar m tn About 2 years ago he was diagnosed with hypothyroid. On aug 3 07, he was diagnosed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>with</span> ITP. We have been battling the ITP <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>with</span> the low platelets and using IVIG to raise his counts. In March 08, he was diagnosed with Morphea (autoimmune to his skin), we also thought, based on his stool and blood tests that he had Ulcerative colitis. He has very sore joints as well as sore everything on his body...very hard to sleep at night and get out of bed in the morning.
Avatar n tn and he says they have a lot of patients <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>with</span> neuro symptoms <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>with</span> thyroid problems. Shouldn't they go away <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>with</span> thryoid replacement? I'm at a good level of medicine according to my blood tests and it just doesn't make any sense to me.
Avatar n tn this morning i woke up and my thrush is so bad again...and now they gave me apo-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span> 4 5mg pills each day for the inflammation to take for 2 days my questions is should i take it..already my thrush is back allot..i,m afraid if i take it it will get out of control again..and i think the apo fluconzole and sporonax also were causing my server headaches as well..what do i do the headaches are so bad but this thrush is making me so sick as well..
393685 tn?1425816122 My husband is very supportive, but I just feel that he would not want to be <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>with</span> someone struggling <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>with</span> hair loss. I dunno. Hopefully my hair grows back where it has thinned out. Thanks for putting this ? out there.
Avatar n tn It's common to have worse symptoms when the weight goes up. If you were able to control symptoms <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>with</span> medications and weight control (some antidepressants typically cause weight LOSS), then you wouldn't need surgery. Antireflux surgery is very effective, however, when done in the right circumstances and by an experienced surgeon.
Avatar n tn I know it's the primary tool in testing for it but what is the percentage that they miss and how far can the scope get into the terminal illieum and small intestine to do biopsies. I've had abdominal pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>with</span> occasional blood in the stool. The abdominal seems to be more intense in the appendix area though I don't have appedicitis.
Avatar f tn People with moderately severe disease who are not confined to bed usually take oral corticosteroids such as <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span>. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span> in fairly high doses frequently induces a dramatic remission. After prednisone controls the inflammation of ulcerative colitis, sulfasalazine Some Trade Names AZULFIDINE , olsalazine Some Trade Names DIPENTUM , or mesalamine Some Trade Names ASACOLCANASA often is given to maintain the improvement.
890195 tn?1241148998 I can't tell if I felt better taking the dessicated thyroid because I was so miserable <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>with</span> hives and very drugged up. My endocrinologist <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>with</span> my HMO told me not to take the Naturethroid and instead try Synthroid at an increase of 137mg. I tried this for a week and didn't feel as good as on Naturethroid so I went back to the natural stuff. My hives continue through all of this and I was hoping that they would get better with the thyroid correction.
Avatar n tn I have had chronic rhomboid muscle pain on the right side for 10 years, and have seen numerous MD's(MRI with no significant problem found), Chiropractors (Adjustments & pressure point message), Physical Therapists (waste of money) and a Neurologist that is currently performing acupuncture. I self medicate with Ibuprofen, and sleep on an ice pack every night.
Avatar n tn When and if I find something that helps, I will post. Meanwhile, my thoughts are <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>with</span> all of us who have these crazy symptoms <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>with</span> no answers. Hang in there.
Avatar f tn It says that this illness can cause blindness if you do not take <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span> so I take it. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span> causes a multitude of other medical problems, it helps one and creates new ones. Since being on prednisone I have allot of water retension all over my body, especially my legs and feet.Some days I can hardly walk because of the pain from edma. The pills to reduce the water do not work for me. Please contact me if you have this illness.
Avatar f tn , ana, ssa antibodies, low platelets etc. What bothers me is that doctors won't treat me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>with</span> any more than <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span>, antimalarial medications. None have affected my scalp condition. What other options might there be. Doctors now say I need antidepressants.

Avatar f tn I had toxoplasmosis when I was 17 and took <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span> for three months then tapered off without any worries. It has recently returned as it's a dormant condition. I have been required to be on prednisone for a month and a half - first as 500mg injectable forms x three days and then at 50 mg for 7 days then 40 for 7 days and so on until I taper through the month until I'm at 5mg for 7 days then stop. Is this a too short taper? Has anyone else experienced this?
Avatar f tn I have been on .5 mgs xanax twice a day for about 16 years. It all started <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>with</span> the passing of my oldest son. I took antidepressants and xanax to help me get back to living again and to stop panic attacks. I stopped smoking shortly after that with the help of Welbutrin. Shortly after that I developed Systemic Lupus and was on a ton of prednisone and methotrexate for 8 years.

Avatar m tn Below, we review what is known about the various classes of antidepressants and their propensity to cause TEAS in individuals <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>with</span> BPD. 3.1 TEAS associated <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>with</span> the use of various classes of antidepressants Tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs) have consistently been associated with a high risk of TEAS compared to other antidepressants; naturalistic and retrospective studies have reported TEAS incidence rates ranging from 9% to 69%33–38.

Avatar f tn The fibro is under control <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>with</span> my Cymbalta and along <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>with</span> restarting Pednisone, she also gave me Methtroxate 2.5 mg. x 8 pills once a week. This last medicine was prescribed because she knew I didn't want to go back on prednisone. This metho is for cancer patients and she said that in some people, poly stays with that person in the form of flare-ups, which I am having. She also reported of a low vitamin of D and Folic Acid. So, I have to take those.
Avatar n tn Hi, 'Urticaria is generally caused by direct contact <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>with</span> an allergenic substance, or an immune response to food or some other allergen, but can also appear for other reasons, notably emotional stress. The rash can be triggered by quite innocent events, such as mere rubbing or exposure to cold. Drug treatment is typically in the form of Antihistamines such as diphenhydramine, hydroxyzine, cetirizine and other H1 receptor antagonists.
