  • Can daliresp cause sever lower back pain and light perioud bleeding?
    I started Daliresp tab.and i began having a really bad rash in my private parts .. by the 3rd day i started having awful pain in my lower back with some light blood in my urin, now i have this severe pain and its as if i have a light perioud. i had a comple hysterectomy in 2003,due to overian cancer. i will call my pulmonaligist who put me on this medication on monday the 26th . but i am concern thats why i am asking ...
  • My daughter has congenital php and diabetes(hyperglycemia) not diagnosed until 18.with both...now 23...blood sugars are uncontrolled nothing so far is helping
    All the patients I have chatted with have LOW blood sugar but mine is high. Nothing is helping it just keeps climbing. What gives?
  • Can i take a steroid while taking xarelto (1 answer)
    I took prednisone for constant cough. had 3rd surgery on back one year ago. Had to patch spinal cord. Got blood clots. Had pulmonary embolism. Now have severe bronchitis. I know the prednisone will take care of cough, but what else?
  • Why would i get copd since i never smoked?
    I have several autoimmune disorders, I was shocked to get the COPD diagnosis since I have never smoked but I had second hand smoke first 23 years of my life.
    My doctor said my Autoimmune Hepatitis and Primary Biliary Cholingitis set me up for COPD.
  • Dr. switched me from advair and spiriva to tudorza. shouldn't i still stay with advair
    Doc said drop Spiriva AND Advair and start exclusively on Tudorza.



    Wouldn't staying with Advair in addition to Tudorza be helpful?

    (Or would it decrease Tudorza's effectiveness?)



    I'm just finishing a 3-month bout with lung Pseudomonas infection. I'm regaining my strength, but still breath much more poorly upon (even minimal) exertion than before the Pseuomonas.



    Tudorza seems as equally effective as my Advair and Spiriva regimens did, but I still run out of breath much sooner than I did before the Pseudomonas hit.



    Will I ever regain my prior abilities? Should I combine ADVAIR with TUDORZA?

    Thanks

  • Formoteral fumarate inhalation powder
    I have been using this drug since 2004. The only one that gives me near immediate relief. I have tried nearly every drug for this condition, and this is the only one that is easy to use, at home and away. I also follow up with azthmanex, which is a steroid, and using for a year
  • Grape seed extractc and insomnia
    Started grape seed extract 8 days ago, and for the last 4 nights, have slept the sleep of the blessed! I have never slept well from childhood, and usually spend the early hours 'wandering' as my husband terms it. I even have a spare bed because I have such a disruptive sleep pattern.
    Very pleased with sleeping right through the night, then even 'lying in' for an extra hour or so! Feel so much better (and my asthma has improved a bit, also).
    Dosage = 125 mgs with evening meal. I use powdered, and measure it out into enough foils wraps for 8 days.
  • Spiriva caused me to swell up like a hippo.
    My Doctor prescribed spiriva to help me breathe due to asthma/cold. I never smoked but my parents and friends were heavy smokers. I used the spiriva 3 times. Once a day for 3 days then I started swelling in my ankles and the swelling continued until my face, hands arms... basically I was so swollen I gained 29 pounds in two days. My doctor put me on lasix and potassium for several weeks. I quit using the spiriva when my other doctor asked if I was on any new meds. Spiriva was the only new medicine. When I stopped using it the swelling went away.
  • Advair could have caused current dark circles around eyes
    I have had asthma my entire life. I was introduced to advair during an asthma study when I was 16 I think. I have been on the medication ever since. I am 27 now and have been off Advair 250 for almost 7 months now. Lately I have been experiences very dark redish circles underneath and around my eyes. They get darker and lighter depending on my mood I guess. I did not have this problem prior to ever being on this medication. Does anyone else have similar symptoms or story? How do I make them go away?
  • My reaction to talking sumatriptan for the first time.
    after 10 minutes of taking the sumatriptan tablet i got all of the symptoms i stated and from those i developed a rare movement disorder called 'Dystonia' that has affected my right foot making me unable to walk and my right hand making me unable to write.
