Protonix (causes cancer), Prevacid and Prilosec are called the IT's. If anyone over 50, takes for long periods of time, the side effect is a HIP FRACTURE. I know people suffering right now with hip fractures, including my son age 31. My husb. Suffers SO much from Acid Reflux/Heartburn, but I will not allow him to take any of the above 3 meds. Please assist. Rita
I've been taking ambien for several years now to sleep. Have noticed some memory issues--blank mind, not with it, not as sharp as I once was, pain in my toe. Had a close call while driving recently. I want to get off the ambien and am trying many herbal, etc, supplements with little success. but I have one question: how do I get all the ambien out of my system? Is it possible to reverse these side effects? Some websites indicate that some side effects cannot be reversed, but I am hopeful they can over time. thanks for any help you can give me.
I have terrible insomnia and was given ambien - took rarely at first but now am up to 5 nights/week. am noticing memory issues, like fog and forgetfull. I've got a pretty good diet - mostly veg's, some fruits, very little meat. Eggs from my own chickens. Rarely eat away from home. I posted here some time ago about everything I've tried for insomnia, but nothing has worked. Please, someone, tell me how to detox from ambien (I want it cleared out of my system). I think if I ever got myself squared away I'd be okay - take acv, 3 tbs/day + borax, take b3 and b12, multivitamin, serrapeptase + astaxanthin for arthritis. Any ideas? Thanks
What can I do to clear up hairy tongue I got from taking antibiotics for an ear infection? I don't want to take another antibiotic to clear this up.
It is not black hairy tongue yet, but the papillae are starting to grow long on my tongue and are beige to light brown. I've been scrubbing vigorously with my toothbrush but it is making my tongue sore. I would be grateful if someone had a idea for me.

Hello, In 2012 I had breast cancer was treated with chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. It was stage 3. Now I am on an aromatase inhibitor AI, which destroys estrogen. The treatment is usually 5 years. I have terrible leg pain and now hair loss. My oncologist had prescribed morphine during chemo and I am still on it, a very low dose. I am considering stopping the AI. Is there anyone else on earthclinic dealing with this. Let's talk, please. Thank you.

Numbness after dental procedure:
I had dental procedure and got Novocain shots, came home and waited numbness to go away. And waited and waited, next day started panicking so I went to my dentist. He checked it out told me how its called when that happens, and said its rare but sometimes can happen. When I asked him what should I do he just shrugged. Worst thing is this was front upper tooth, so every movement hurt plus I hurt my gums because I cant feel anything. I didn't do anything because I thought dentist would tell me if there is anything to be done. At last I got sick of it and spent hours of research and found the solution. Vitamin B-50 complex and follow the instructions on the bottle, if you dont feel any change in several days take Vit B-100 complex. You will feel change little by little, sometimes nothing will happen for days but keep at it. It took me several months, some people got better in few days. I know its rare but you never know. So if you are that one person in millions I hope it helps you. Good luck
i would like to ask, thanks for having time in reading and answering this one.. I was on contraceptive pill for about 4 months now and I was wondering if I could take a diet pill with a couple of hours in interval, because I really do gain weight, please... Thank you so much
Hello, I just came across your sight and did not see anything mentioned about prescription meds. I see that antibiotics can cause brain fog, but what about Bupropion (Generic Wellbutrin)? I have been on this for 6 months now and it has helped tremendously in certain areas and would hate to stop taking it due to the brain fog side effect. I am worried since I am starting nursing school and have to be sharp as a nail. Any suggestions? Is this categorized as the same type of brain fog? Do you know what causes it? Any suggestions as to how to get rid of it would be much appreciated! Thanks, Katie.
Yesterday, I was re-reading Mark Sircus' book Transdermal Magnesium Therapy wherein I stumbled across an interesting story concerning George Eby's daughter who was suffering the terrible longterm destructuve effects of Cipro poisoning. Here's how they quickly resolved the Cipro problem:
"I received a letter from a professional colleague named George Eby in 2007 that stated that his daughter had been destroyed by the terrible side effects of a special type of antibiotic called fluoroquinolones (Cipro). He said, "My daughter was stricken with this horrible affliction. Cipro sensitivity causes long-term (multiple years to life) chronic pain, muscle weakness, and tendon weakness leading to tendon breakage and many other horrible effects, some physical and some mental. This is something that everyone needs to know about. We have been destroyed by Cipro. I don't think there is much anyone can do except to give her magnesium, which is somewhat of an antidote. I am very worried but I haven't lost hope, yet I am being realistic. Some of the tendon damage is necrotic and permanent. However, we have studies with rattlesnake venom that produce necrosis on animals and simply applying magnesium (chloride) and zinc (gluconate) topically, the necrosis vanishes." Ten days later I received an email from George saying:
"Topical magnesium chloride for 10 days = well daughter! "
I've also read that Walter Last also recommends that Magnesium Oil(70% magnesium chloride crystals + 30% Water) can be mixed with 70% DMSO or 99% DMSO in a 50-50 mix and used topically for even better absorption into the blood. Used topically just on its own, about 60% of mag oil gets absorbed into the blood. If you use it with DMSO then about 80%-90% of the magnesium chloride gets absorbed into the blood.
In case some people are wondering why using topical magnesium oil is any better than oral, remember that, at some point when you take increasing dosages of magnesium orally, you will get diarrhea. So taking magnesium chloride orally restricts your oral dose.
By using magnesium oil topically you are therefore able to safely take much larger and more useful amounts or dosages of magnesium chloride which get absorbed directly into the blood with no diarrhea side-effects in the intestines whatsoever.

Does Bill or anyone know what's in Cipro that causes Achilles tendons to tear? My tendons on both feet feel at times like their going to tear out of the heels...And this can occur when sitting, lying down or just walking...If I know the ingredients or drug that causes this I could address this issue...It's very scary and dangerous. Thank you.
I have read the posts here and they have been helpful. Every tendon in my entire body is inflammed, every joint is swollen and casing me pain! The veins in my hands and feet are huge. I have pain from my neck to my toes. I've seen 2 doctors and have a follow up my a physician today.
I stopped taking Cipro on Feb 23 afer taking it for 6-7 days. I had no idea what was making me feel so horrible and this nightmare started with tingling/burning/numbness in my hands and feet and arms, and since I didn't read up on this drug, I was following what was on the bottle and didn't read the info on the printout until I had been having the tingling, numbness. This has progressed into the tendon pain and inflammation, joint swelling, you name it it hurts! Unfortunately I did not reduce my caffeine intake while on Cipro (I didn't know and had been on NSAIDS for a few months before taking Cipro! At first I had a few "pops" in the tops of my hands after the tendons were inflamed, now it seems like everything is popping. I'm scared to death of rupturing a tendon right now!!! Since my tendons everywhere are inflamed and it seems like all of my joints are swollen, it's very hard to not use either my hands, arms, or my feet/legs.
I'm on a multi vitamin, ibuprofen 600mg, magneisum supplements, fish oil, vitamin C supplements, Glucosamine/Chondroitin, alpha-Lipoic Acid 200mg. I've read here that some have benfitted from MSM in powder form and lotion applied directly to the painful area (my whole body). Where can I get MSM powder and the lotion in the US? Can it be ordered?
Right now I'm struggling getting a doctor to take this Floxing thing seriously. I was given a script for Neurontin 100 mg to help with the tingling and numbness and told to take the ibuprofen and wear hand/wrist braces. I'm putting ace bandages on my ankles and legs. This is the worst thing I've ever been thru. I'm feeling worse not better.
Thanks and please someone let me know about the MSM and anything else I can do to get some relief!

March 19 I went to ER because I was short of breath and felt like I was in a daze and lost strength in legs and could hardly get uo without help. This had gone on for over a week. I had pneumonia and was admitted.
Besides antibiotics, IV's and my regular meds, they gave me cortisone for five days. I wore shoes when I went in and had no swelling of ankles. 2 1/2 days after I got the cortisone my ankles started swelling even though I was on lasix and have been for a long time. Also my belly is swollen. I've gained about 10 lbs. My right ankle is about three times it's normal size and I can't get shoes on either foot. Compression socks only seemed to make it worse. They cut circulation off. A nurse comes twice a week and in insisted I had to wear them. Prior to going to the hospital my legs lost strength and now I have therapy for that so I'm not able to take socks on and off easily. Last night the right leg bothered so much I managed to get that tube sock off ( about 4:00AM) and by 7:AM the swelling in my foot had gone down so much I managed to get a shoe on. Now I have an ace bandage in the ankle and lower leg. My doc wants me to take 2 lasix for a week and then check my kidney function to be sure it's not harming my kidneys. I also have decreased kidney function.
Anybody know how to get the effects of cortisone out of the system without resorting to lots of vitamins because the kidneys can't handle it?
