Solodyn Diarrhoea Causes and Reviews
What is diarrhea?
Diarrhea is loose, watery stools (bowel movements). You have diarrhea if you have loose stools three or more times in one day. Acute diarrhea is diarrhea that lasts a short time. It is a common problem. It usually lasts about one or two days, but it may last longer. Then it goes away on its own.
Diarrhea lasting more than a few days may be a sign of a more serious problem. Chronic diarrhea -- diarrhea that lasts at least four weeks -- can be a symptom of a chronic disease. Chronic diarrhea symptoms may be continual, or they may come and go.Who gets diarrhea?
People of all ages can get diarrhea. On average, adults In the United States have acute diarrhea once a year. Young children have it an average of twice a year.
People who visit developing countries are at risk for traveler's diarrhea. It is caused by consuming contaminated food or water.What causes diarrhea?
The most common causes of diarrhea include
- Bacteria from contaminated food or water
- Viruses such as the flu, norovirus, or rotavirus . Rotavirus is the most common cause of acute diarrhea in children.
- Parasites, which are tiny organisms found in contaminated food or water
- Medicines such as antibiotics, cancer drugs, and antacids that contain magnesium
- Food intolerances and sensitivities, which are problems digesting certain ingredients or foods. An example is lactose intolerance.
- Diseases that affect the stomach, small intestine, or colon, such as Crohn's disease
- Problems with how the colon functions, such as irritable bowel syndrome
Some people also get diarrhea after stomach surgery, because sometimes the surgeries can cause food to move through your digestive system more quickly.
Sometimes no cause can be found. If your diarrhea goes away within a few days, finding the cause is usually not necessary.What other symptoms might I have with diarrhea?
Other possible symptoms of diarrhea include
- Cramps or pain in the abdomen
- An urgent need to use the bathroom
- Loss of bowel control
If a virus or bacteria is the cause of your diarrhea, you may also have a fever, chills, and bloody stools.
Diarrhea can cause dehydration, which means that your body does not have enough fluid to work properly. Dehydration can be serious, especially for children, older adults, and people with weakened immune systems.When should I see a doctor for diarrhea?
Although it is usually not harmful, diarrhea can become dangerous or signal a more serious problem. Contact your health care provider if you have
- Signs of dehydration
- Diarrhea for more than 2 days, if you are an adult. For children, contact the provider if it lasts more than 24 hours.
- Severe pain in your abdomen or rectum (for adults)
- A fever of 102 degrees or higher
- Stools containing blood or pus
- Stools that are black and tarry
If children have diarrhea, parents or caregivers should not hesitate to call a health care provider. Diarrhea can be especially dangerous in newborns and infants.How is the cause of diarrhea diagnosed?
To find the cause of diarrhea, your health care provider may
- Do a physical exam
- Ask about any medicines you are taking
- Test your stool or blood to look for bacteria, parasites, or other signs of disease or infection
- Ask you to stop eating certain foods to see whether your diarrhea goes away
If you have chronic diarrhea, your health care provider may perform other tests to look for signs of disease.What are the treatments for diarrhea?
Diarrhea is treated by replacing lost fluids and electrolytes to prevent dehydration. Depending on the cause of the problem, you may need medicines to stop the diarrhea or treat an infection.
Adults with diarrhea should drink water, fruit juices, sports drinks, sodas without caffeine, and salty broths. As your symptoms improve, you can eat soft, bland food.
Children with diarrhea should be given oral rehydration solutions to replace lost fluids and electrolytes.Can diarrhea be prevented?
Two types of diarrhea can be prevented - rotavirus diarrhea and traveler's diarrhea. There are vaccines for rotavirus. They are given to babies in two or three doses.
You can help prevent traveler's diarrhea by being careful about what you eat and drink when you are in developing countries:
- Use only bottled or purified water for drinking, making ice cubes, and brushing your teeth
- If you do use tap water, boil it or use iodine tablets
- Make sure that the cooked food you eat is fully cooked and served hot
- Avoid unwashed or unpeeled raw fruits and vegetables

Solodyn Diarrhoea Reviews

Solodyn can cause hair loss. It did for me. I was on it for a year, felt a numbing pain near back of my head where hair loss had started. Stopped taking it, pain went away within a week, but hairloss continued. A significant amount has fallen out. 2 years later after not taking, I have seen sprouts and hair regrowth but not near sufficient to replace the hair lost.

I just started taking Solodyn about 3 days ago. I do have anxiety already but since I've taken it.. Last night I had an extreme mental break down with an overwhelming amount of anxiety and not knowing what was Wrong. Not wanting to be with anyone or talk to anyone and strong feelings of fatigue and shakiness as well as fast heart rate and nausea. I'm not sure what to do now. I just want the overwhelming feeling of fear and anxiety to go away

i have been taken Solodyn for about 6months and my entire face was covered with severe acne before i started taken these pills. it took about 3 months to see results. as of now i had not 1 bump/etc on my face totally clear. i have not expericenced any side effets this far. no one is the same and this drug will affect everyone differently. i have 4 months refills left and back to the dermtatologist to see if she wants to keep me on the Solodyn. my only concern is if she decides to take me off the drug will my acne come back. good luck to everyone!!

|I am an athlete, so i sweat a lot! Sense I sweat I got little bumps and acne on my back and on my face! So I went to the dermatologist and she prescribed me Solodyn. I took Solodyn for 2 months and I didn't think I had any side effects from the medicine. 16 days after starting the medicine, I produced a shoulder injury (which we though was from over use) and nothing seemed to help it! I went to physical therapy,iced it everyday, eventually I had to get an injection in my shoulder,(which should have knocked it out completely), but it didn't! I got off the medicine because i ran out and didn't have time to get another prescription. My shoulder injury eventually resided on it's own because the physical therapy didn't seem to do much good! A month later I started back on Solodyn. 8 days later my knee blew up like a balloon! My knee was so big I couldn't walk at all, and it was very painful. I ended up having to get my knee aspirated and they got 58cc of fluid out of my knee. Everything was fine after that. 3 days later, my other knee swole up just like the last one did. I had to get that one aspirated too and the also got 58cc of fluid out of that one! After that all the swelling subsided and everything was normal for about a week and all the sudden my ankle began to swell. My ankle went away on it's on but we scheduled an appointment with the dr. because the swelling in my knees came back. I began to tell the dr. all of my symptoms and right away he knew what it was, it was the Solodyn. I'm thankful I went to the dr. when I did because he has had MANY cases of this in teenagers, some having to be hospitalized. I have been off Solodyn for about 3 weeks now and my joints still swell and sometime the pain is so bad I can't walk. So i have to sit and wait for the drug to run it's course! It helped my skin but It's not worth the side effects! It's a very strong drug and I do not agree it should be used on teens for acne, because of all the risks it comes with.|

|Dose anyone know if Solodyn can cause your hair to fall out???|
|Sat, 05 Jun 2010|
|Yes it can cause hair loss, as it did for me. I was on this pill for a year when it started to really cause serious hair loss. Stopped taking it soon after, 4 months ago, but i am still seeing loss of hair on an almost daily basis.|
