This Medication For Arthritis Patients Is Very Dangerous:
My husband suffered from a mild adverse reaction to fluoroquinolone antibiotics three years ago. He went on to develop arthritis from his floxing approximately one year later. arthritis is a painful joint inflammatory condition. He avoided taking any medications for this condition until just recently.This past week he saw our rheumatologist who prescribed a Medication For Arthritis. This Medication is called Otezla.The doctor told him that this medication was different than all of the other medications used to treat arthritis because it does not suppress the immune system. He told him that the only known side effects that were seen in trials were diarrhea (which is supposed to get better the longer you use it), headaches, indigestion, nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, sinus problems and severe depression.
The depression is so severe though and include suicidal ideation.The doctor suggested that the Otezla, for the most part seemed harmless, and its side effects seemed nothing compared to all the other toxic Medications out there to treat this condition. So, my husband said he would give it a try and started the Medication For Arthritis, three days ago.Individuals prescribed this Medication For Arthritis begin at a lower dose, 10 mg and titrate up to near a 100mgs within about month.Physicians are being given one month trials of the medications from the pharmaceutical company to offer to their patients. If it works, the patient then orders directly from the manufacturer.
Pharmacies are not distributing it yet.My husband looked at the medication literature that came in the packet but it really did not give much information since it is just now being distributed out to the general market. The only thing that the literature can report is what was seen in the study trials and for the most part it just confirmed what the doctor had told us in clinic. The technical information was listed. The mechanisms of how the drug worked, how it is excreted and metabolized was in there but my husband did not understand much of it. Like a fool, I did not take the time to read it because I am dealing with my own health issues now.
