Epilim Off Label Use Causes and Reviews

Normally, your cells grow and die in a controlled way. Cancer cells keep growing without control. Chemotherapy is drug therapy for cancer. It works by killing the cancer cells, stopping them from spreading, or slowing their growth. However, it can also harm healthy cells, which causes side effects.

You may have a lot of side effects, some, or none at all. It depends on the type and amount of chemotherapy you get and how your body reacts. Some common side effects are fatigue, nausea, vomiting, pain, and hair loss. There are ways to prevent or control some side effects. Talk with your health care provider about how to manage them. Healthy cells usually recover after chemotherapy is over, so most side effects gradually go away.

Your treatment plan will depend on the cancer type, the chemotherapy drugs used, the treatment goal, and how your body responds. Chemotherapy may be given alone or with other treatments. You may get treatment every day, every week, or every month. You may have breaks between treatments so that your body has a chance to build new healthy cells. You might take the drugs by mouth, in a shot, as a cream, or intravenously (by IV).

Got fatter because medicine makes me eat more, shaking, etc

Mon, 18 Jul 2011

In June 2005 I suffered a minor head injury, after a while I started having a mild muscle spasm in my left arm, after 2 years my GP advised 200mg of Eplim may help, eventually I agreed.

In Oct 2009 I move house/area the new GP eventually increased my pescription to 2500 mg, to date I have never had signs of or had an epliletic fit. I have MRI scan which show no abnomal problems.

My GP recently sent me to a specalist. I saw my specalist 8 weeks ago who has sinced carried out another MRI scan and EEG, he has told me they may be able to stop the muscle spasm with an operation.

Since that appointment I have stopped taking Eplim, the muscle spasm have stopped completely and I feel alive again.
