Avatar n tn Possible food and drug interactions when taking this medication Return to top If penicillin V is taken with certain other drugs, the effects of either could be increased, decreased, or altered.
Avatar n tn HOLY ****, what kind of doctor is prescribing all these drugs?!?
7864743 tn?1394873296 Coconut oil has antiviral properties among other medicinal properties, which may work better than most prescription drugs and w/o the unwanted side effects. It is suggested to start with 1 tablespoon per day the 1st week and up it by an extra 1T daily each week, until you reach 4T daily in week 4. Cayenne pepper has mucus thinning activity, so spicy foods are in for bronchitis. This helps coughing better. Avoid dairy products, to avoid extra mucus production.
Avatar f tn I have what I consider anxiety attacks but electrophysilogist says they aren't classic panic attacks but wired up nervous system from ANS. My primary care gave this med to me a couple years ago but I have been afraid to use it since its addictive Also he only gave me three of them prescribed as follows-take 1 tab 3x a day as needed. Hence a one day supply. I was afraid to even start them because if they work and give some relief it would be terrible if that's all he gave.
2030686 tn?1351692148 I was under the impression HCV meds suppressed the immune system. In the class today, the guy said interferon helps boost the immune system. I'm a little confused now. I even asked to make sure that's what he meant to say. He said the pegasys boosts the immune system so the riba can kill the virus. So which is it?
Avatar n tn Any information you have on reflux and its effects on the central nervous system will be greatly appreciated. A couple of times a year usually during my PMS time, I experience a bad case of reflux. As bad as the reflux is, the worst part of it is the impact it has on my central nervous system. When I get the reflux I get it constant for about a week to 10 days.
Avatar m tn Sometimes patient can also suffer from flu, sinusitis or allergy and the symptoms may be bothersome because of unequal pressure changes in sinus, ear and respiratory system. Firstly you need to undergo thorough physical examination; the blind swab or Endoscopic or sinus aspirate can be cultured to rule out secondary bacterial infection. Plain sinus films and sinus CT may show sinus fluid levels if present.
Avatar m tn Most of the Xenical side effects are mild to moderate and are not likely to affect everybody. Xenical works only in your digestive system and most of its side effects are because of the inhibition of fat absorption. The intensity of Xenical side effects is way less serious than those notice in many other slimming pills that affect the brain to suppresses your appetite. Furthermore, the majority of minor side effects will occur within the first three months of Xenical treatment.
Avatar f tn Last week I began having increased anxiety, sweaty hands and feet, my heart seemed to be beating harder and breathing seemed more difficult. I also had an upper respiratory infection, which was affecting my throat and lungs. I went to my Dr. and met with Physician's Assis. He gave me Ativan for the panic and said the symptoms were more than likely not "withdrawal symptoms" since it had been 5-6 weeks since I had last taken Zoloft.
Avatar n tn this post looks old but i just overdosed on methadone and yes,n rockferdoxy, idiot, opiates can damage the brain if they depress your cns enough to cause respiratory failure and therefore cut off oxgen supplies to your brian causing cellular damage. i od-ed in july and was in the hospital for several weeks. i was intubated or put on a respirator, and while in a coma had seizures and a heart attack.
Avatar m tn I did research online and could not find anything definitive but I did read that taking that much NSAID's everyday could affect the respiratory system and cardiovascular system so I correlated the symptoms with taking the Lortab. I decided to quit the Lortab, so I cut down to 1 per day for a week and then stoppped altogether.
Avatar f tn She has all the side effects listed. My question for anyone on this drug is #1 Do the side effects ever go away (Level Off ) or will she remain tired and sluggish all the time. #2 Is your memory always effected? Having two small kids makes this a very hard time.
Avatar n tn they also have no toxicity and much more safer than all the other drugs for liver disease (calling them hbv drugs is very wrong and just mmisleading to sell those drugs).as you know the sides of: entecavir, possible cancer promotion, possible virus mutations/resistance tenofovir, bone mineral density, kidneys damage i have noticed replicor has only private investors, nothing from drug makers.
Avatar n tn I would like to know about some of the side effects and some of the long term effects that an individual might have after taking this drug. I would also like to know how long the drug is in your system and can it be detected.
Avatar f tn Has anyone else noticed since they have been on Interferon that their immune system has been greatly STRENGTHENED? Everyone in my family and everyone at work is very sick...except me. I stopped and realized last night that honestly - aside from the sx flu symptoms stuff...I can't remember the last time now that I had the common cold or a flu bug or something. I really believe that the Interferon DOES teach our immune systems how to fight.

Avatar n tn I was reading about numbness and tingling in hands and feet and you make several references to long term side effects from quinolones. What do you reccomend in lieu of these antibiotics? I have recently (today) been prescribed Levaquin..Originally prescribed Keflex, but I had an allergy to amoxicillin 1 year ago--1 hive and some facial swelling--post dental surgery.At that time, I was put on prednisone and amoxicillin post an extraction--per the oral surgeon -"it was routine".
Avatar n tn Hi everyone I did the 8 week regiment with slimquick. I had no side effects accept that I had great energy but the last few weeks I had cramping and heartburn. I decided that I just wasn't going to continue and get back to doing things naturally but the day I stopped taking it it was like my body crashed! i was so tired. by dinner time I just wanted to go to bed, i had a severe headache also. has anyone else ever had this happen to them? and is it typical?

Avatar n tn I'm really worried about this, could it be side effects of withdrawl, or a lasting effect, or maybe something different. Please help, what can it be?
Avatar f tn Riba can do a number not only drying out the skin, but our insides as well. A lot of us therefore have upper-respiratory issues on treatment. In my case, it got so bad that simple walk outside when the air is colder became painful. Of course, you can wrap a scraf around your face -- a 3M mask works OK as well -- but the best solution I've found is a fleece ski mask made that can be found at icanbreathe.
Avatar n tn It has been a crazy journey over the last 5 years and I never thought I would still be suffering side effects from drugs I took so long ago. If I could go back and change it I would never have tried the interferon. I was only at a stage 1. My doctor could of recommended for me to wait for something better...with more than a 50/50 chance to sustain remission. I had plenty of time, there should have been no hurry. But, he was doing a study .
Avatar f tn He also said I could expect the drugs to take a month or more to get out of my system. His partner had told me more like 6 months. The nurse practitioner that I saw bi-weekly said a month or more. It's been just over 3 months, and while I can tell some improvement - not as brain foggy - I am experiencing extreme muscle and joint pain, chronic fatigue, ears ringing, insomnia, and skin itching and breakouts.
199177 tn?1490502134 Buprenorphine is a long-acting (24-72 hours) opioid that produces less respiratory depression at high doses than other narcotic treatment drugs. However, severe respiratory depression can occur when buprenorphine is combined with other central nervous system depressants, especially benzodiazepines. Deaths have resulted from this combination.
Avatar n tn Is it like saying just taking longer birth control pills? What are the side effects? What are the benefits? Has FDA approved? Where i can search more about Yaz? Will it affect my future plan of having a healthy pregnancy? Also, i was told if i do want to get pregnant, i should wait 6 months after taking the birth control pills. is that true?
Avatar f tn It need not only be injections with powerful and unpredictable immune-system modulating drugs. Do what you will, tuffgirl9312, and God bless you and may you have the best of luck. But go into it with your eyes open. Realize that the reality is that money has for decades driven the research findings, and find a doctor with a healthy healthy respect for the side-effect potential of interferon.
Avatar n tn MD - It is difficult enough to get the TRUTH from GSK, ELI LILLY, the FDA, and other regulatory bodies outside of a court room about the side effects and withdrawal symptoms that exist in non-pregnancy situations re SSRIs. These drugs have been on the market a relatively short time. As this is the case, what hope have we of believing that the truth (or any convicting studies) will be given openly about the long-term results of children exposed to SSRIs in the uterus?
Avatar n tn My GP says to just wait it out, but there has to be some remedy to cope better with these effects. I can handle the emotions, but the other crippling effects are getting the better of me - I am a 8-4-working-career woman-housewife, which means I don't have the luxury of getting faint every 2 seconds. Also, how do I get rid of the sudden waist-increase - haven't gained a kilo, but blew up like a balloon!!!
Avatar n tn There may be an increase in central nervous system- and/or respiratory-depressant effects especially in elderly or debilitated patients. While on these drugs patients should be monitored for excessive or prolonged CNS and respiratory depression. Before taking these drugs together contact a physician. Do visit your attending doctor. Keep me posted. Best luck and regards!
3039221 tn?1340464800 Everyone on this sight is fighting with the system, or a dr. and it is WRONG! We aren't even getting high, at least I never have felt a tinge of anything! All this headache, heartache, and worst of all the stress is literally a killer!
