Nasty stuff
| ARattay
I'm on my 5th day of this nasty stuff given to me for a tooth extraction infection. I started to feel its effects I mediately! Stomach pain, gas, no diarrhea but weird looking stools And heartburn which I never get! I'm stopping this stuff immediately! Thank goodness my ENT doctor told me this stuff is nasty and to stop taking it. I would never have stopped and I would have just continued on. I'm hoping the damage isn't already done… Taking probiotics.

Sick on KVK Tech oxycodone
| Shavonney
Sick as a dog on KVK Tech oxycodone, in withdrawal all day everyday since got it. Doesn't work! Had a bad one in the past that pain clinic wrote name of company on script as one not to be filled by pharmacist This needs to be done with this company. Hard enough with new laws forcing us to take less than doctor prescribes so to get one that isn't working, not good. muscle spasms, nausea, diarrhea, can't eat and can't stand due to leg pain. Not cool KVK Tech! Will be calling company as I did last time to discuss with them when I feel better..

The gas travels internally around the body causing discomfort or pain
| beancounter
I'm 72 years old and have lived with diverticulitis beginning in my early forties. For thirty some years I have experienced (still do) recurring bellyaches with constipation or diarrhea and various pains usually associated with heart attacks such as heart pains and numbness in my right arm. Other pains caused by this gas travailing thru my body causing very sensitive teeth/gums and my left arm/hand (broken years ago) to ache.

What is the issue with taking Imodium and LDN together, just one canceling out the other?
| Karen1
I just heard the other day from a online talk that imodium and LDN should not be taken together. First time I heard this. I have taken them, maybe not together, but possibly within a few hours of each other in the past few months. So today not really thinking I decided to skip my morning dose of LDN (I generally take 3.0 ml morning and 3.0 ml at night, 12 hours apart with a skip here and there usually at night), but today I decided to skip this morning not realizing that might have been a good choice after all. I then had the runs and I took first one Imodium and then an hour or so later took the 2nd one after still having issues and I have to leave the house today. Question is I am hoping since I did not take my LDN this morning at 9:15 and my next dose is not till 9:15 PM, I should be okay, right? Or I could skip tonight too I guess?

Diarrhea while on Rapaflo
| Jordon28
I was started on 8 mg of Rapaflo. I began to have diarrhea within 2 days of treatment. I did not think it was the medicine. After approximately 3 weeks on Rapaflo, I went to my doctor. I explained the diarrhea continued periodically during the the 3 week time period. He ran a series of tests including parasites, bacteria, salmonella and several others. All test were negative. I have discontinued Rapaflo and have not experienced gastrointestinal issues since.

Side effects worse than flu itself
| Ally.howard
I begin taking Tamiflu two days after experiencing flu symptoms. The side effects from the medication are far worse than the actual flu itself. Since I started taking this medication three days ago, I have not been able to sleep at all. I fall asleep for 20 minutes then I wake up. I have probably gotten a total of 10 hours of sleep in the last three days, and that is not helping me heal. The nausea the diarrhea the shakiness, the sensitivity to light, it's too much to handle. I am taking this medicine and throwing it away. Next time I will just let the flu run its course. I highly recommend you do not take this medication

As a result of taking Otezla for Plaque Psoriasis, I have had many of the side effects that have been listed for this medication. The side effect that occurs most often is nausea. There has been a weight loss as well but, in fairness, that may be due to physical exertion at work. Over the last three months, I have had some occurrences of diarreah.
I will be consulting the Dermatologist to change medication.

Meloxicam has taken away 80% of my pain which is great but it's made me sick as a dog. I'm tired all the time and so nauseous I have to force myself to eat, no to mention the diarrhea. Does anyone know if these side effects ever get better?
