- I have had two surgerys to remove cancer in my bladder and am on warfarin for my afib. my bladder cannot seem to heal. i have blood in my urine and intermitent burning at the end of my penis. will the (2 answers)
I have had two surgeries in the last 14 months to remove cancer from my bladder. Diagnosed with afib 16 months ago. Bladder is not healing due to the blood thinners, but I must keep my INR above 2.0. Every time I take the warfarin, I have more blood in my urine.
- How to deal with low blood pressure caused by metformin
I was on Accupril 5 mg for more than 10 years with little or no side effects. I was diagnosed with early Type 2 diabetes and the doctor prescribed Metformin 500 mg 2 tablets a day. After about 3 months, the blood pressure was too low 88 Sistolic 45 diastolic and suffered syncope.
I reduced Accupril until I am completely off Accupril. Still the BP was too low and I then reduced Metformin to one tab a day. The BP came back and gradually became too high , i.e., 150/92. I have to put Accupril back on at 5/2 mg then 5/4 mg then finally at 5/8 mg. This seems to be optimal but the Blood Sugar is at just above 100, sometimes 106. I wish to increase Metformin back to 2 a day but afraid Bp will become too low.
Any input would be appreciated.

Is there any treatment to help patients with this problem?

- Nardil side effects and my experience taking it
I have been on many SSRI AND SNRI medications that quickly became ineffective. Was told by a doctor friend that she had been on an MAOI inhibitor for many years with good results. After going thru a horrible withdrawal detox from the SNRI I had been on and then a period of no med at all I was started on Nardil, as I needed assistance from Pfizer, the many turner in affording the medicine. My friend was on Parnate, a different brand of an MAOI.
Within days, not weeks I felt the depression lifting. It was the most dramatic and fastest response I had ever had to any antidepressant .
Then the fainting started, falls with resulting broken ribs, bedridden and alone I lost over25 lbs in two weeks. I was of normal weight for my height. After I was able to function again, I noticed that my legs were very weak. We cut my dosage from 3 pills daily to 2. That seemed to have stopped the faint spells. However I still had/have low blood pressure that I monitor at home. My Systolic BP was usually in the 70's and 80's. One of the lowest was shocking to me. It was 52/27.
My son is a hospital RN and said they would never discharge a patient with Bp that low.
He was very worried about me as I live alone. I fainted twice after climbing the 13 stairs to my bedroom. The first fall was very bad as I was unconscious and my ribs were severely injured/fractured completely around the front and back and was in terrific pain. I took to my bed and did not seek medical attn. my last ambulance ride to the hospital a mile from my house cost $1000 and since I have no income or relatives/friends to call for help, I just lay in bed I awful pain that was woes when I tried to get out of bed. Thus I lost 25 lbs of muscle, since I had very little body fat.
It has been two months since that fall and still have one area of pain in the front left ribs and a swollen spleen. The doctor gave me no additional meds and just said to give my body more time to heal. So once again was changed to 2 pills daily instead of 3. The hypotension and fainting got better. But I am now left with very weak legs and fall easily and frequently. Guess I lost a lot of muscle mass with the weight loss. However after a lifetime of depression, Nardil works wonderfully for that which had been long-standing and severe for so many years. People noticed the change in me shortly after starting the Nardil. But I am stubborn about going off it despite all the side effects because it works so much better than any of the many others I had been put on over the years.
I am soon going to start doing leg exercises with ankle weights, starting with light weights are first and gradually increasing the weight as I hopefully rebuild my muscles and strength.
Also my vision has gotten blurry and I feel slightly retarded after the weeks in bed when I was breathing very shallowly due to the broken ribs and my brain was deprived of adequate oxygen.
Prior to all this I had an IQ of 140. If they tested me now, I know I would be way down from that. Also doing lung/breathing exercises to expand my lungs so I can take in more air with each breath.
So that is my story of Nardil, hypotension, and depression. I had to really suffer to remain on this med that worked so magically for me after so many failures. It meant that much to me to not be crippled by depression.

I have IBS, diverticulosus, gerd, Barretts espohogas. I take magnesium asportate supplements daily for constipation. For over a year my mouth has been very dry. Went to dentist, said I have sogerns, however my eyes are not dry. Could the magnesium asportate be causing me to have dry mouth. I need something to prevent daily consitiaption due to IBS. I am so confused about what to take. Nutritionist says magnesium asportate is fine to take, however several say it is dangerous. Please tell me your thoughts.
