  • From this study (3 weeks ago):

  • My chest begin after walking or cycling at a heart rate of 90-95 bpm for 5 minutes
    and increase in intensity for 10 minutes and a heart rate 100-105. The chest pains
    subside gradually and disappear after 5 more minutes of continued walking or cycling.

    I had the same condition before taking Folic acid and Methotrexate.

  • From this study (12 months ago):

  • Believe my problem is with Formoterol. Symptoms (breathlessness and being winded with minimal exertion) first noted three years ago after taking Foradil aerolizer (formoterol) and asmanex twisthaler for one to two years. Health, stamina gradually dimished to shortness of breath with minimal exertion. One - two years ago prescription changed to symbicort. health improved dramatically for approximately two months. Began walking one to two miles a day. Now back to being winded with minimal exertion. Health seems better until I take my symbicort. Spiriva seems to counter act breathlessness at morning when I take with symbicort. At evening with no Spiriva, breathlessness prevails. using Spiriva twice daily works but doctor says no.

Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Sciatica caused from simvastatin
    My mom was prescribed simvastatin to reduce her cholesterol. Within a couple of weeks taking it she complained about muscle pain in her back to her doc. Doc said it was normal. She continued to take the statin until the pain moved down her leg to her calf. She had a blood test and the doc told her to stop taking it. She did but the pain is still there (more than a year).
    My mom believes her sciatic pain is directly related to her use of the statin.
    She's been off it for more than a year. Has the statin permanently damaged her?
    What can she do besides the PT that she has been doing?
    Thanks.
  • What are the medicines you can take for a cold or/and flu who is taking pradaxa?
    I am taking all of the meds listed especially the newest drug, Pradaxa, which my Primary Doctor knows nothing about. He said since it is new there is no data out there on other medicines you can use with Pradaxa. I have now got the Flu and he doesn't know of any medication I can take with me taking Pradaxa. What am I to do, just die? Does anyone out there that is taking Pradaxa and had the Flu or even a cold what medication did you take for flu and/or cold? PLEASE WILL SOMEBODY HELP ME!

  • Pravastsin sodium 40 mg
    Began pravastatin 2 days ago...my. blood pressure spiked.
    Due to this rx
  • High cholesterol since on losartan and clonidine
    I found studies done ( via online reputable journals of medicine) that cholesterol was found to increase with the use of Losartan. Imagine that! The Dr was amazed since my healthy diet has not been changed for years. No statins for me!
  • Hydrochlorothiazide and frontal fibrosing alopecia
    I took Hydrochlorothiazide for almost a year to prevent kidney stone formation. Ten months later, I went to see a Dermatologist because I was having problems with my skin. I had lost all of my eyebrow hair and most of the hair around my facial hairline and my hair was thinning on the rest of my scalp. I was diagnosed with Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia and was informed that Hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) can cause this disorder, which is a variant of lichen planopilaris. This disorder causes permanent hair loss due to scarring of the hair follicles all around my facial hairline. The hair I have lost will never grow back. I was advised to stop taking HCTZ.
