Went to ER thought tetanus dr said not the case stiffness in neck and jaw and muscle spasms all over. Doctor said probably related to medication side effects does this sound accurate?

Yes: ...I am assuming the doctor did a good history and that you have had tetanus vaccine in the recent past, that you did not receive a deep dirty wound, and that medications you are taking could explain your symptoms.

Which thyroid medication has the best absorbancy with the least side effects?

Which thyroid medication has the best absorbancy with the least side effects?

More complicated: Don't know how one can tell which thyroxine tablets are best absorbed in a one individual, because of the complicating factors. If having trouble, one can save up some money and buy the name brand every time. Then, eat similar amounts and similar types of food near the time when thyroxine is taken, plus take it at the same time every day. Calcium, iron, antacids, etc., changes the absorption.

Are tics that are caused by medication side effects also called tourette's syndrome?

Are tics that are caused by medication side effects also called tourette's syndrome?

Depends: Many children who will develop tourette syndrome (ts) may first seem to have "typical" symptoms of adhd at age 6 or younger, which may result in their receiving stimulants. The average age of diagnosis of ts is about 8 years. Stimulants can unmask tics, so it may look like they are the cause. If vocal and motor tics continue even when the stimulant is stopped or start later, it is still ts.

Can some one tell me about osteoporosis medication side effects?

Can some one tell me about osteoporosis medication side effects?

Upset stomach: Generally osteoporosis medicines are well tolerated. The most commonly used are bisphosphonates taken by mouth. They most commonly cause heartburn. Intravenous bisphosphonates cause fever and muscle aches for 1-2 days in 30-40% of patients. Very rarely bisphosphonates are associated with jaw problems and fractures of the mid thigh bone. Teriparatide may cause nausea and muscle cramps.
