I posted before here on a coughing problem that has finally been dealt with. I was wondering though if taking the tussionex could have caused my gallbladder problem I have now.

I was taking 10ml/12 hours for roughly 15 months before they figured out what my problem was. The pharmacist threw a fit every 2 weeks when I'd refill it saying I was being prescribed twice the allotted amount.

I quit taking it about 5 weeks ago after going to Mayo and getting "cured". I had the expected withdrawal symptoms but it just never went away. It got worse and I started passing a lot of blood, dark and light in the stool and eventually it became just a white color. I finally went to the doctor and he ordered an ultrasound and they tell me my gallbladder needs to come out now. I'm all for that, he says it'll make the pain go away but I was wondering how this came about?

I had a case of thrush that got real bad in my airway and sinuses and we still haven't figured out why my lungs are retaining co2. Now this issue with my gallbladder going kaput. I have an appointment with the surgeon tomorrow morning.

Could all this be connected somehow and as unlikely as it seems Mayo may have overlooked something? Or, could taking that dosage of Tussionex have harmed it somehow? Are there any known environmental factors anyone could think of from working at a large jail or something?

I thought I was done with all this. Suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks

  • My favorite site for learning about drugs is:http://www.drugdigest.org Did you ever ask the pharmacist why he got so upset with your dossage? Thrush--start taking some probiotics. Jarro Formulas produces a really good one but there are others. Can't answer your other questions--sorry.
