Mirapex not only made me hear and see things, I was nervous, anxious, angry alot about nothing, depressed, memory loss, could not re...

Mark, the Lyrica didn't work for me at all. Then she put me on amitryptilene,(not sure about the spelling) anyway, it put me in the ER with a terrible muscle reaction. It felt like every muscle in my body was about 2 inches long! Needless to say, I put that in my little brown bag labeled "Medicines ...

Iron Infusion

Yesterday I went for an iron infusion, took about 2 1/2 hours, but last night I slept all night, very little leg movement, no creepy crawly sensations - WITH NO MEDICATION!!! I have not done that in over 7 years!! I would suggest if you're anemic, iron deficient have this done. I took iron pills unt...

I am also so irritable I could bite a nail into, snappy towards my children. I am calling my md today to discuss a hysterectomy. ...

Dumb Drs.

Why is it so hard to find a decent dr.? My first neuro when I told him symptoms I was having on Mirapex looked at his nurse and said "We haven't heard of any of those have we" Of course her answer was "NO, dr. we haven't." So they were dismissed as just my imagination or something I made up. I have ...
