    I have been taking zetia for quite some time and have recently developed neuropathy. I take it once a day and always on an empty stomach. I did not equate the prickling feeling at first with this medication, but after googling it, I discovered a correlation between the two. Can anyone here validate my discovery?

    Wow, I thought I was the only one. Vancomycin given to me during day surgery to lengthen the gastrocs on both legs. I had colonized MRSA in my nose. Woke up, slid off the gurney to stand up and collapsed onto the floor as my legs didn't work and I could not operate my legs. Put into intensive care because of the colonized MRSA in my nose, and more Vancomycin infused into my IV that night and the next morning. My feet and calves were on fire with neuropathy, and my legs totally weak. Could not touch them for several years. Neurologists tested me -- positive for peripheral neuropathy -- but were of no help, Neurologists were of no help -- said it would keep getting worse and I'd be in a wheelchair within several years. I'm not diabetic, and no one knew why I had PN. I FINALLY found the connection to Vancomycin on the internet. A naturopath and other alternative treatments have helped me greatly.

    Taken time release lithium carbonate 30 years, only 450 mg daily. 2 years ago got Neuropathy (feet). Thinking that lithium caused it decreased the amount by half - 6 months ago to 225mg (.3) but didn't help, no other meds. Worked hard at researching the cause. Anyone have experience similar or insight? Thanks

    Peripheral neuropathy pain is to the point that it prevents me sleeping. Gabapentin doesn’t really work anymore. Mobic and ibuprofen seem to make it worse.

    I started taking requip for severe restless legs about a year and a half ago. Six months ago my right foot went numb and tingling really bad and up my leg some and minimal in my left foot. Does anyone know if requip can cause neuropathy? Requip has been a life saver to me for my restless legs so I am really hoping it didn’t cause this☹️

    Hello.. I am 38 years old, was born with kfs, encephalocele, and scoliosis. Drs were not familiar with kfs when I was born, so it was not diagnosed until I was 30. Was diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy 2 years ago, but have been suffering from it for 3+ years. The PN seems to be getting significantly worse and progressing rapidly to the point where walking is very difficult due to severe muscle fatigue in my legs. Was curious if KFS and PN are related somehow. If anyone has similar issues, I'd love to hear from you. Thanks

    I was on Paxil for over 20 years. A few years ago I developed a purplish/red rash around both my ankles. After having blood test and finding nothing on them. I started doing some research and found that Paxil could be causing this. After slowly stopping the Paxil and being totally off the medication the rash has faded to almost gone. But I am now having a burning sensation on the tops of my feet. Has anyone else had this problem?
