  • From this study (1 day ago):

  • I would like to know if these medications are compatible and if they could have caused a recent serious bout of C Diff. I suspect Vimovo.

  • From this study (3 days ago):

  • I have a relatively weak erection (estimate 50-60% of maximum erection potential) and tend to have a weak orgasm with only a moderate amount of ejaculate (even after 2-4 weeks of abstinence). I am in excellent cardiovascular health exercising 3-4 days a week on an elliptical, achieving sustained exercise heart rate in 70%-90% of maximum range. My resting heart rate is 50-55 beats per minute, my cholesterol and triglyceride levels are well controlled with exercise and zocor. My blood pressure is well controlled by Hyzaar 100/25. I have never tried medications such as Viagra, Cialis or Levitra for this problem. Perhaps they would help, but I feel the main reasons for my problems are my age (64) and the side effects of the combinations of drugs I take. Also, last year I had my testosterone level checked it was 399 (normal range 400-1200).Perhaps this is also part of my problem?? Thank you for any advice.

  • From this study (3 days ago):

  • Was prescribed lithium for bipolar disorder. Lithium impacted thyroid levels. TSH rose to reading of 52. (should not exceed 4.5) Lithium use suspended, Synthroid added to combat thyroid condition.
    Severe joint pain ensued, first in left shoulder, left hand & left knee. Followed soon thereafter by same pain in right shoulder & right hand. (finger joints) Shoulder pain so severe that I could not retrieve wallet from rear pants pocket nor could I easily put on coat or long sleeve shirt.
    Suspended Statin use & within 3-5 weeks, shoulder pain & range of motion improved to 90% of normal. Pain/stiffness in finger joints has not improved. Cannot make tight fist!!
