A clarification on what Zach said: - Suboxone is buprenorphine (a synthetic opioid) with a small amount of naloxone (a.k.a. Narcan). This is meant mainly for addiction treatment. Buprenorphine is supposedly similar to methadone. The naloxone is there to keep people from shooting it up--it's not abso...

People have indeed reported all three of milk, chocolate, and sweets in general causing worse symptoms when consumed in the evenings, so you've probably nailed something on the head there. Glad you figured something out to help your symptoms...

That's just reprehensible. Not just to be wrong, but to belittle a patient. Disgusting. Report him to your state medical board or something. Don't let him get away with it--you know you're not the first or last he'll do it to. Me, I'd write his office a letter letting them know I was firing him and ...

I can't say much to help, but I will say that anyone who is in constant pain is fully entitled to moan about it. :(

emmett-- Yes, I had that problem when I was taking just methadone. Not only did I find that I would yawn myself half to death during the day, but I had a great deal of trouble with word- and name-finding, which are two things I am normally quite skilled at. It was a combination of upsetting and anno...

Yeah, I know. My wife killed all the bugs in her GI tract a few years ago, so I know the drill. Definitely a good point to make, though. At least it's easier to get probiotics now. At the time, she had to order them from Canada if she wanted anything other than what's in standard yogurt, which isn't...

I honestly don't know if it's the antibiotics, but my symptoms definitely concur with the list given: nausea, diarrhea (oh my GOD the diarrhea), dizziness, fatigue. Of course, those are the same symptoms one gets with the flu, so who knows? It's a damned long flu, if that's what it is. All I know is...

Re: madash 1014

Inside, was my check that I had paid him, marked void. No note of apology, just the check. That's probably the best you could get. I doubt his lawyers would let him say, "Oops, yeah, I was wrong and you were right, sorry," out of fear of a malpractice lawsuit. I'm surprised you even got t...

Ah, indeed, the ginger does help. My parents always gave me ginger ale when I was sick as a kid. Now I know why. Mind you, that's also probably why I don't normally drink the stuff as an adult. :) Still, a can of ginger ale does seem to be having a remarkably quick effect on me.

Wow, I just can't believe how baaaaad the phenergan was. Parts of my body that never have RLS got it all of a sudden, and the ones that usually have it went off of the chart. All I wanted to do was sleep through the nausea (which, by the way, the phenergan didn't even touch), but I could only get co...

Yeah, domperidon is the one that I can't get here in the US.

I tried phenergan... baaad idea.

I'll try some of my leftover klonopin next.

Report your doctor to whatever board certified them.

What they did is literally malpractice. I'm not exaggerating or joking.

Need anti-nausea med

I'm on day 8 of a 21-day course of cipro (antibiotic), and I'm as sick as a dog. A really sick dog, that is. A dog that doesn't want to do anything except lie down and groan. A dog that's also trying to ship a product at work this week and can't take any sick days. Is there anything other than the m...

I've always said that the warranty on the body runs out at 30. If you didn't notice the lack of coverage 'til 40, then you were really lucky. :) On the bright side, the warranty on your brain does run out at 40, meaning that one only has to go about ten years before starting to forget how much bette...
