Here,s a story on what happens when you take certain HIV meds an Valium and the like.YOU MAY HAVE A ADVISE REACTION.This could get ugly very quickly !We have fussed over lot of things but in this case it nearly broke us apart.An now when we fuss over something he bring up that time an won,t let me forget it.Then a few week later went to fill a med then the pharmacist pulls me an Mark to the side then tells us that this med and that med can cause a bad reaction.I told the pharmacist I wish you would have told me sooner rather than later after I destroy part of my house.By the this was Rite Aid so I switched to Wal Greens an guest what it happened again after taking 120 mg of Cymbata for a year my nurse practitioner give me a scrip for Ultram toke it far a month was having headaches but didn,t know why second month pharmacist pulls me aside an ask me did you know there can be a drug interaction between the two.Come to find out that's what was causing my headaches.SO PLEASE TRY TO BE MED WISE!!!

You are so right Scooter,  if anyone could read those tiny type sheets they put in with the meds you probably wouldn't take the pills.... I personally just try to us this sites'  med thread..it shows the most common reactions   also ,I have been fortunate to have  good advice from the nurses at my Dr's office about what symptoms to watch for with certain combinations.and avoided almost sure reactions...
remember the good times...honor the past but don't live there
