Common Questions and Answers about Aldara side effects medicine

aldara

Avatar n tn My dr is eager to answer any questions that I have, and I like her very much,but honestly, I dont think she knows all there is to know about aldara. When I asked about side effects, she seemed very confident that the side effects were mild flu-like symptoms. She even seemed surprised to hear of the list of symptoms I asked her about. And she even said that as far as she knows, there are no sytemic side effects to using the med vaginally.
Avatar m tn Seeing as though the FDA would never approve anything that would harm you, correct? Ever read the numerous side effects listed on a package of Aldara?
Avatar n tn To answer you specific question, different people tolerate the various therapies diffferently. None of them is perfect either in effectiveness or side effects. Condylox may work better for you, and may (or may not) be less toxic. In addition, there are several treatments that doctors can apply in their offices. If a dermatologist confirms the diagnosis, s/he may treat you with freezing, electrocautery, laser therapy, or even surgical removal.
Avatar m tn I would like to see if anybody has used Aldara, not had any noticable negative side effects, and had it still be effective.
Avatar f tn However don't ignore and still see your doctor to make sure, they should be able to do a swab and or blood testfor HSV What are the possible side effects of imiquimod topical (Aldara)? Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.
Avatar m tn Certainly the motive of FDA and govt are to fetch money by treating and no cure, peg is a noble example being expensive having big side effects low response rate yet approved. Replicor cud try getting approval from other countries apart from us. Anyways don't know much of these policies. Feeling helpless. Thanks for the infos Steff and Stephens.
Avatar m tn 2 Therapy with cytokines is, however, parenteral and is associated with unwanted side-effects. Imiquimod (Aldara, R-837, S-26308) and resiquimod (R-848, S-28463) are members of a new group of low molecular weight compounds, the imidazoquinolinamines3 (Figure). These have been shown to have properties as immune response modifiers in vitro and in vivo, and demonstrate antiviral and anti-tumour activity via endogenous cytokine production.
Avatar f tn If it worked for you great but it is unwise to take drugs for other disorders and potentially incur side effects for no reason. This is the link to the actual zovirax website and don’t see even them, the actual company indicating it is helpful with HPV. http://www.zovirax.com/prescribing-information-for-zovirax2.aspx I’m glad it worked for you but it is entirely possible your immune system helped you out!
Avatar m tn The problem of delivery into the hepatocytes and possible side effects are likely to delay or kill this interesting effort to combat Hepatitis B.
Avatar n tn I have read the disclaimer, many archival posts and other sources on HPV (CDC, WebMD, New England Journal of Medicine), but still have some lingering questions specific to my case. Quick background: A) I am a 31 yr-old female, and have been in a monogamous relationship since Oct 2008. I started having vaginal sex (protected all but twice) ~ Mar 2009 for the first time with my current partner and in my life (I have had only oral sex before with 3 other people).
Avatar f tn However, most people will never have any idea they have had an infection because the majority of the population are able to clear any strains of the virus without developing any symptoms or ill effects. It's also important to know that there isn't any HPV test (FDA approved) for men, only women so we never know when we are in contact with someone who has the virus. - HPV is the causitive factor for 99.8% of ALL cervical cancers.
Avatar m tn How about side effects after a liver transplant not afraid of those? You have e antigen positive hbv. Why they were treating you with nucs then interferon was the rightvway tovgo about it. These doctors who prescribe anti aids drugs to us kill us really.
Avatar f tn improved mood (apparently low zinc levels have been linked to depression and ADHD) and increased libido (there are studies backing that too, look it up). So zinc sulfate (sulphate) will probably cure your warts, improve your mood, and make you horny. Cure = found. I still recommend the licorice tea and supplements as a quick attack on the HPV virus and zinc as a long term remedy to the underlying cause of HPV flare-up and susceptibility (low blood serum zinc levels).
Avatar n tn Anyway back to the aldara, if you have insurance its like $160 for the 4 month treatment, otherwise its $1200, when you burn off all the warts, THEN apply the aldara because the aldara did not clear my warts, but after 4 months of using it, it PREVENTED them for 8 months. So basically, Im thinking about just using aldara 3 times a week for life, to prevent. Untill then I'll use compund.
Avatar f tn I don't find any logical and moral explanation of how can that be that Rep9AC is not being given out to people to spread the word. And Why are the researchers are not demanding this medicine. The cost of making it is not and should not be an issue. And if big pharma buys it how will then they lower the cost down? So it is just equipment issue then. It also can be fixed from the public funds. Currently we have just about all of the research sponsored mainly by huge US big pharma companies.
Avatar f tn The firstone almost killed me with Pegasys, I had a horrible side effects, huge decrease of weight - 10 kilos, permanent imsomnia and enormous decrease of white blood cells, so the doctor gave me each two weeks a shot to increase white blood cells. I though I am going to die, then I found my temporary doctor who told me that the previos doctor could have killed me with those shots for white blood cells.
Avatar m tn All results are on the improvement side I would increase vit d3 to 10.000iu daily and stop all dairies in diet.they promote liver cancer and are not good for fatty liver too.look for oat milk organic with no added calcium In particular calcium in dairies is bad Your nagalase is quite high, since it canbe made by both viruses and cancer cells i d start stabilized vitamin d (which is not vitamin d3).
Avatar n tn My last one showed me as having VIN2 which my oncologist/gyno wanted me to use ALDARA Cream for 3 months, I tried it but i couldnt function with all the side effects, So after much reading as much as i could find on HPV and VIN i started taking the supplement DIM, thought it was helping some but now I have the burning back again and am afraid I will have to go in and have another biopsy again. I hate this. How come so many of us never heard of this before.
Avatar n tn This has haunted me for years but I dont get the stomach issues that everyone talks about. Does anyone else get the respiratory side of this and do the probiotics do anything for that. If they do, can anyone hypthesize why it works?
Avatar n tn I have the same situation. It started a little while after I gave birth. It is only an itchy inner labia. No other side affects. I was tested for a yeast and bacteria infections. My ob-gyn has no clue (I went to 2). It comes and goes and is itchy!! I can not figure this out!!!
