thought my husband was crazy
I took mucinex, and my left eyes nearly swollen and closed . My eye is so swollen, it looks like pink eye. O don' t want to go to the doctor because my funds are low to make a co payment, but I'll never ever take muciex again as long as I live. I'm trying a home remedy . I looked on you tube, and some suggestions were Apple cider vinegar. I know that it's weird, and may cause a little burning. This is why I'm hesitant over using Ned's due to side effects. I hope that my response will help you.

I have been taking mucinex dm for chest congestion for the past 3 days. I do already have some hearing loss and ringing in my ears, but this is completely different I'm hearing things ive never heard before, so loud and bizzare its almost as if others around me can hear it

bactrim and prednisone
1461views
Yesterday I was prescribed Prednisone & SMZ/TMP Generic for Bactrim. The SMZ/TMP is making my stomach feel queezy, strange dreams, slight fever. The first day on the combo I felt better, now I feel like I'm back to square 1... Not a good feeling

While both drugs can potentially cause these side effects, prednisone in particular can commonly cause anxiety reactions, including insomnia.
Definitely contact your doctor to get their opinion; if it's severe enough to bother you that much, your doctor may change you to something else or alter your dosage.
