  • Took yasmin, and yaz birthcontrol pills for 6 years now have pituitary tumor
    I took Yasmin and yaz birthcontrol pills for 6 years. In 2007 I was diadnosed with a pituitary tumor. The tumor cause me to get cushing syndrome. Which I had surgery on my tumor in 2007 it was not successful, it was in a area that the bleeding was to high of a risk, so 1 month later I had to have a bil. adrenal ecotomy now to control my cortisol level.So now I am on life time steroids and have MRI every two years, to check on my tumor to see if there is any growth. So I go to Case Western University Hospital.
  • Garcinia and high blood pressure
    I am taking a weight loss pill last couple of days. Last two days after I ate cheese, I had headache and high blood pressure,nausea. Yesterday whole day I had stomach upset, pain, nausea. I am not going to take ot anymore.
  • Dyphenhydramine and headaches horrible going one almost 24 hours a day for 4 weeks and cant get them to stop, now looking for cause . think its the dyphenhydramine im taking to help me sleep .
    have been taking 3 dyphenhydramine for some time to help me sleep , just in last few weeks began having severe headache almost all the time.. cant get it to go away. just found out it can cause headache and am going to lower my intake to one per night and see if my headaches get better. am taking migrane meds and that hasnt helped a bit so think its not migranes im having. some other reason.
  • Raspberry ketones - side-effect of red face, face muscle twitching
    Whenever I use Raspberry Ketones 500mg capsules (1 a day) I get reddening of the tops of my cheeks coupled with muscle tightening/twitching of the cheek muscles closest to the nose (the muscles that contract if someone blows in your eyes) and the muscles at the bridge of nose at times too. Both sets of symptoms last for a day, then to be repeated again the next day on taking the next capsule. Whenever I cease using the product the symptoms likewise end. They began occurring from the very first use of the product. They are sometimes accompanied by a very low-grade headache. I thus now no longer use the product, plus the product made no difference whatsoever to my weight gain/loss when using it daily over several weeks.
  • Losartan potassium headaches (2 responses)
    I avoided going to the doctor for years and decided it was time to bite the bullet. The bullet bit back. High Blood pressure and cholesterol. Doc prescribed me 100mg Losartan Potassium right out of the gate. At 33 years old, this concerns me. I've been on it for about a week and have had a constant moderate headache along with some slight dizziness/foggy feeling. I also noticed some ringing in my ears a few times as well. Going back to the doc today. My pharmacist says they usually start people on lower doses than 100 mg. Anyone else dealing with something similar?
