My hopes for this category are that it is a place where people can ask about other people's reactions to medications.
I need to say the typical "Advice you receive on this board does not and SHOULD not replace the advice you are given by your doctor(s), if you are experiencing extreme reactions to anything, please get to the doctors or call 911"
Share your experiences, share what you are going through, get reassurances that if you eat tuna fish that it's not really dolphin meat.
Many of us can say "been there, tried that, worked or didn't work for me" we can help each other along, but don't take what anyone says as being more than what your doctor has to say. They are the ones who spent lotsa moolah, years and energy to tell you that your hangnail is not infected.
i'm a figment of my own imagination....sometimes i don't exist
I recently started taking Cyclobenzaprine (Flexeril) and till Queen kmcm told me about it, I didn't realize that the severely dry mouth I'd been having was a result of the new drug. Overall, its working for me, but the dry mouth is way annoying.
But, had she not told me, I never would have known it was a side effect (a harmless, but annoying, one).
