Methadone Pneumonia Causes and Reviews


Pneumonia is an infection in one or both of the lungs. Many germs, such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi, can cause Pneumonia. You can also get Pneumonia by inhaling a liquid or chemical. People most at risk are older than 65 or younger than 2 years of age, or already have health problems.

Symptoms of Pneumonia vary from mild to severe. See your doctor promptly if you

  • Have a high fever
  • Have shaking chills
  • Have a cough with phlegm that doesn't improve or gets worse
  • Develop shortness of breath with normal daily activities
  • Have chest pain when you breathe or cough
  • Feel suddenly worse after a cold or the flu

Your doctor will use your medical history, a physical exam, and lab tests to diagnose Pneumonia. Treatment depends on what kind you have. If bacteria are the cause, antibiotics should help. If you have viral Pneumonia, your doctor may prescribe an antiviral medicine to treat it.

Preventing Pneumonia is always better than treating it. Vaccines are available to prevent pneumococcal Pneumonia and the flu. Other preventive measures include washing your hands frequently and not smoking.

Methodone Side Effects, I have had many trips to Emergency Unit at my Town, having tight painful heart problems. But when they do the Tests for Heart attacks, I jave always been told I have no problem my heart is fine. I have had ECG Tests, all fine. The only thing I can put it to ie: 250 milligrams of Methodone Tablet for Chronic Pain at the highest point was 50 x 5mg Tablest per day. I have had my leg amputated which I had the medication for. Can you confirm what I should be asking my GP, and what literature orResearch papers I can refer to. Thank you Geoff perry
