  • From this study (1 week ago):

  • Just began Cholestyramine Pack on 10/01/2015 for chronic diahrrea which, after several months and many tests, can not be diagnosed! After approx.2 weeks on this medication, began losing considerable amounts of hair every time I shampooed, brushed or even gently combed. After one week, there is a noticeable difference. I have not added or changed any other routine protocol in medications or personal grooming

Lipitor dose was doubled to 40 mg this year and severity of attacks of vasospasm increased significantly. Now with attacks several times a day induced by water colder than 85 degrees or by pressure on fingers when lifting weights.
