Simvastatin (40MG) for Stroke

I experienced horrible side effects from only 26 days this drug! Awful stuff! On day one I developed involuntary foot movements during rest/going to sleep, mental confusion, muscle cramps, and muscle twitching. It was so bad I had to be tested for ALS/MND!!! Despite being off it 3 months now, the symptoms have improved but have not disappeared entirely. I worry I will be forever damaged by this...

Cetirizine (10MG) for Urticaria

We have used it for a week and it did not come back after we stoppped usin...

Cetirizine (10MG) for Hayfever

My daughter uses Zyrtec as a precaution, but so far it has been working great this season, since she did not have that many allergy symptoms (and we know last year was way worse).

Amoxicillin (500MG) for Toothache

I was prescribed this drug for a really bad toothache from an unfinished root canal. It lessened the pain, but did not completely stop the pain. About five days into taking the pills, I developed a severe yeast infection. I have taken other penicillin meds before and this was the worst one. Nothing helps the yeast infection stop itching and burning. Compared to the toothache, the yeast infectio...

Citalopram (10mg) for mood swings

I have been using this stuff for years, it works well for a long time, now that i am getting more sick, i have noticed that it doesn't work as well anymore. Downside is that once you start taking it it's very difficult to stop.
