    Am concerned medications could be causing my symptoms
  • Does losartan cause frequent urinating, sluggishness and weaknesss? (3 answers)
    I have developed prescription induced hyperthyroid.I have since developed hypertension, wasting muscle, rapid heart beat, weight loss.I have been placed on Losartan-75mg. I now get up 4 to 5 times a night to urinate. My dr. doesn't think its the Losartan however I do. I am also more depressed and lethargic. Anyone with these side-effect from Losartan?
  • Does anyone have primary biliary cirrhosis due to prescription medications and if so has anyone detoxed from all mecications and received a decline in their enzyme levels but some form of dementia? (1 answer)
    I was treated for simple depression 10 years ago which through additional and multiple prescription medication use as directed by my family doctor and pyschiatrist turned into to PBC, Hyertension, Hyperthyrodism, Bi-Polar. Once informed of the diagnosis Primary Biliary Cirrohis I choose to detox from all medications in hopes to stop the progression of the PBC. The results were as I thought at the time positive, my enzymnes levels went from off the charts to 50% reductions. The tree in my liver continues to die. I now have a nuerological damage, I suspect frontaltemporal degenration. No Doctor or supporting staff in the region I received treatment will attest to anything other than improved enzymne readings. I cannot have a PET Scan to confirm or disregard my suspicions as I live in a controlled/free medical care province. Yet I travelled to another province and the Doctors asked me when I was scheduled for a liver transplant and they really did not know about the congnitive impairment I was displaying at time of emergency medical attention. I could not walk or talk I believed I was having a stroke. Not so, but a defined diagnosis was not forthcoming. I was advised to go back home and ask the medical care professionals to explain the emergency care's findings. Still I was given the run around and lead to believe it was a psychiatric issue, no organs other than the brain involved. I also need to say no irregular thyroid levels at this time, but higher than normal blood sugar count. Drug free out of whack blood chemistry readings and still no further ahead. I Will admit I caved into the pain and now take long acting and advanced short term pain medications. My question is, am I the only one.
