From this study (7 months ago):
I was recently diagnosed with gluacoma and I was wondering if any of these medicine are causing it. As far as I known no one in m family had it?
From this study (1 year ago):
10 months on Tekturna & my Creatinine went up & Gfr down. At 64, I now have a 70 year old kidney. My comment? No one should be on this drug & the FDA & Novartis knew this was a serious side effect. Not enough emphasis on kidney disease...calling it "renal impairment".The kidney cannot repair itself...no reversal.
From this study (1 year ago):
I also have been taking a low dose aspirin daily. From what I am now reading about aspirin it could be why my Tekturna isn't as effective as they would like and ever since I started taking Tekturna and aspirin - I have developed tinnitus - which could be coincidence. I have spider veins that appear on my cheeks that I have a hunch could be caused by this combo of Tekturna and aspirin. I have been on Tekturna and and aspirin regiment for at least 4 to 5 years now.
Thank you for your help.
