I was prescribed Prudoxin to help with hives and a severe dishydrotic eczema outbreak after a massive allergic reaction to a painkiller. Huge doses of prednisone and benadryl hadn't touched it. But th...

Yes, I started getting the electric shock and pin prick feelings a few months after my symptoms initially started. I still get them every now and then. Sometimes it just feels like my entire body's ne...

Well it's not typical parathesia as it's not pins and needles. It's a usually subtle electrical shocky prick feeling. And the pricks are not all in one place--its one here, one there. My regular doc s...

I get "electric" pain regularly, but for me it started before the meds and the gabapentin is the only thing that helps. I'm with others in that if it started after the med I'd give serious considerati...

Additional Drug Information


* Warning: The facts and figures contained in these reports are accurate to the best of our capability; however, our metrics are only meant to augment your medical knowledge, and should never be used as the sole basis for selecting a new medication. As with any medical decision, be sure to work with your doctor to ensure the best choices are made for your condition.

* About FAERS: The FDA Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS) is used by FDA for activities such as looking for new safety concerns that might be related to a marketed product, evaluating a manufacturer's compliance to reporting regulations and responding to outside requests for information. Reporting of adverse events is a voluntary process, and not every report is sent to FDA and entered into FAERS. The FAERS database may contain duplicate reports, the report quality is variable, and many factors may influence reporting (e.g., media attention, length of time a drug is marketed, market share). For these reasons, FAERS case reports cannot be used to calculate incidence or estimates of risk for a particular product or compare risks between products.
