ANTIETAM (3 years ago):
Severe ankle swelling by evening despite 60
MG of Furo per day. Stopped taking w/o informing my Dr. Now ankle swelling is almost zero. Top blood pressure is 145, up from 125, but bottom is still in low 70s. No doubt that Furo caused ankle swelling. Any one else have this experience?

Has complained of dizziness since she has been on all her meds and has fallen several times.. Have been concerned about her dizziness and have brought it up to her Dr.'s but since all her med's can make you dizzy they don't seem to be concerned and aren't willing to change any of them. Just started hallucinating since being on the coumadin. Don't know what to do?

From this study (8 months ago):
I have been on Vivitrol since 10/2012, on Lasix since 4/2013
My hip and leg pain is worsening and my daily life is effected by this pain. I walk differently d/t the pain, I can't exercise without pain. Is it due to the monthly Injections of Vivitrol that they alternate Right/Left in my back side. Not sure what the long term effects of Vivitrol are, but I certainly have become more debilitated since I statred recieving these injections
