Uterine Fibroids :: Esmya Prescribed?

My consultant has prescribed Esmya today and I had to give the prescription to my GP so waiting to see if she agrees it tomorrow.  In fact I am sure she will but has anyone had issues with their GP not agreeing?

Also I noticed that most of the women in this forum are taking Esmya in preparation for a hysterectomy.  Is there anyone else like me who does not want a hysterectomy and is just taking Esmya to shrink fibroids only?  Well I am sure my GP will agree to process the prescription.

Neurology :: Headaches - Prescribed Amitriptyline And Topiramate

I have been experiencing headaches since 2006. I have been to the doctor numerous times trying different prescriptions. I have absolutely had it with dealing with this. I went to the doctor this week because I am on my 13th day of this headache with no relief. She put me on nadolol and butalbital. On top of what the previous doctor prescribed months ago amitriptyline and to topiramate. After taking the new medicine my headache was so bad all day. It is the worst. It has only been three days on the new meds but I am wondering if I should take them because I feel worse than I have ever felt. I go back to the doctor in a month. Anyway I just wanted some opinions on this. I'm 36 and I am sick and tired of these headaches. I have them about 80% of the month since 2006. I am fed up. I need to get pain free.

Substance Abuse :: Methadone Addiction - Prescribed For Someone Else

My boyfriend of 9 months who is an accident victim was prescribed Methadone and Opana just got out of rehab himself, but around Thanksgiving, I broke my finger and he was giving me his doses of Methadone... It's now June and I'm still on it. Only him and I know I'm on it, I refuse to tell my doctors or anyone because I'm also a Celiac and Fibromyalgia patient and I don't want to ruin my chances for getting help. I am down to taking a quarter of a tablet a day. I never really took that much to begin with. Most I took was 2 tablets a day so I wouldn't say I have it as bad as anyone else at all. I need to ween down by myself. I flushed all of his medications but I kept only three tablets that gives me 12 quarter pills to wean. I took a quarter this morning, what do you all suggest I should do with the other 11? You thing I should go with another quarter tomorrow and then cut the quarters in half by taking one of those slivers in the morning and a sliver at night? And then narrowing it down to just a sliver and then jump off? What are some supplements that have helped you? I'm allergic to anxiety medications so that's been my downfall. I am so ashamed of myself and guilty. This isn't like me at all since everyone in my family has some sort of addiction.

Steroids :: Leg Pains And Prednisolone

I'm not sure if it's related, I'm on prednisolone - gradually reducing from 40mg per day, now on 30 and reducing by 5mg every week. However in the last few days I get very sore legs when walking relatively short distances - mainly in my shins then spreading up my legs. Feels like cramp. It dies down quite quickly but as soon as I walk any sort of distance the pain comes back - has anyone else had this?

Steroids :: Prednisolone And Asthma

I have asthma usually managed with symbicort inhaler and ventolin reliever. I get intermittent chest infections and consequently I have been taking prednisolone occasionally for 5 years now - 2 or 3 times a year along with antibiotics when I feel I can no longer function at all normally and have to resort to going to the doctor's. I take 30mg a day for 5 days and they work very well. I am concerned reading other experiences of taking prednisolone and the horrendous sounding side effects. I have always known these drugs are not "good" for you but they have provided me with such effective and fast relief that I have continued to resort to them, albeit occasionally. I have no severe side effects - some interrupted sleep, heartburn etc. Can anyone tell me if, at the levels I am taking them, whether I am likely to suffer the side effects other people speak of - e.g. weight gain/redistribution, moon face, osteoporosis etc? Also whether the side effects go away and how long they last once you have stopped taking the pred?

Allergies :: Red Eye And Steroids Rebound Effects

I am affected by red eye for almost two years and used 3 to 4 steroids prescribed by doctors( But then I was not aware of the rebound effects it can cause ) and one of this steroids (Fluorometholone and Tetrahydrozoline HCl) has really caused some damage in my right eye. On 23rd June I had color Fundus Photography on both eyes And luckily the test shown that it is not rebound effect which I am suffering from. And after some trial and error I have found that it is nothing but Cigarette smoke which is causing all those problems. That is I am an eye allergy patient.

now my medicines are Alcaftadine 0.25% and systane.

How much they can help me to get rid of this allergic problem?

"In fact I would like to know if eye allergy is curable?

And I have heard that by injecting the allergen agent into the eyes starting with a low amount and gradually increasing the amount immunity can be achieved. Is it a option for me to Inject tobacco in this way, while tobacco is poisonous. If no, than what are the alternative treatments. Do not advice to give up smoking. I am not being arrogant here I know it shall be impossible for me.

I tried physiotherapy, acupuncture I'm taking complex vitamin b tablets.

I didn't take any photos with my son during his birth and he is now 8 months and i don't have many photos with him i don't want to be remembered as a monster.

Everyone always says oh i cant tell, you look fine , don't worry about it but its hard to believe them when they aren't the ones suffering.
