thank you so much for your help!!
I had to go to the ER early this am. I had taken some vicodin for the pain (low back down to ankles) and I had a reaction to it that made my heart pound. My heart was pounding so hard I could count my heart rate by hearing it. While in bed my it was 100-115.
The ER doc didn't know anything to do for me but give me benadryl for the drug reaction. And of course my LLMD has fri-sun off!!
? When you're having a bad herx, do you stop taking your meds? I don't ever want to take them again.
I'm taking: biaxin, plaq, artemisinin, cipro, (rifampin, alinia, lomatruim and andrographis all added 2 1/2 weeks ago. 1 week after adding the new meds I start having diarrhea that last about
6 days. I went off all meds for 7 days. Then starting back with just the biaxin, cipro and rifampin. Eversince I started the rifampin and alinia, every time I take the plaquenil I get serious stomach pain and nausea. Like there's a knife working it's way through my GI tract!!!
? has anyone taken one med fine then switch to another manufacturer brand and then not tolerate it anymore? This is what happened with my plaquenil. I changed pharmacies, and they use different manufacturers. I asked the pharmacist if he thought that any additive differences could make that much difference. He said he never heard off that happening to someone. What do you think?
at least the er doc gave me a Rx for darvocet. This pain is the worst I ever had in my life!!!! And I don't want to play this game anymore!!!! Can't even imagine taking MORE meds when I feel this way.
