Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Interaction between cialis and ibuprofen
    Takin ibuprofen to reduce headache and mialgias by cialis produced gastritis
  • Is finasteride compatible with tamulosin?
    are these 2 meds compatible?I have been prescribed both and would like to know if they work together. Also is it normal to urinate 6+ times per night even after radiation therapy and hormonal treatment,(zoladex&casadex)?
  • Does anyone else suffer with hand cramps after injecting novolog into their arms?
    For the past six months when I take my Novolog before meals, about 1 1/2 hours later I get cramps in my hands, so bad I cannot hold a fork or knife. I have also noticed, at night when I take my Lantus, I have awoken with severe leg cramps. The only thing different that has happened is the pharmacy at Ft. Sam Houston has gone to a shorter needle (1/4 in) instead of the regular needle of 5/8 in. I have spoke with my doctor and the pharmacist and both say they never heard of people with these reactions. What I have read on line make me believe that this is happening to other people besides me. Can someone give me some advice?

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • After 30 years of PVCs (irregular heart beats, tachycardia to bradycardia), I was put on 100 mg of Amiodarone. Almost a year later, I have no arrhythmia, but I have typical whorls on my cornea, mild wooziness, graying skin, chest pressure (no pain), and trouble concentrating. I am wearing Bi-pap for both types of sleep apnea (somewhat controlled), with tachycardia waking me up, presumably after apnea event. I am checked regularly by chest X-ray, pulmonary test, and blood test for thyroid involvement. I take 1 baby aspirin and 1 multi-vitamin, daily. I am hoping there is another drug for PVCs with fewer side effects. I am a male, 77 years old, in good shape, physically, with few ailments, otherwise.

  • From this study (5 years ago):

  • Doctor changed Pravastatin to Crestor and my neuropathy symptoms increased dramatically, so I stopped all statins for 9 months. I have recently started Pravastatin again because my cholesterol levels are the worst they have ever been. Symptoms seem to be getting worse again.

    Have had chronic fatigue ever since I started on HIV meds. I seem to be one of the 25% who seem to have this unfortunate reaction to taking them.
