From this study (2 weeks ago):
I was diagnosed after a routine diabetes checkup with my PCP, who is a specialist in internal medicine. He referred me to a urologist, who confirmed the kidney stones. The urologist prescribed ciprofloxin and tamsulosin. At the same time, my PCP prescribed farxiga to help control my A1c. About 10 days later, I started breaking out in a rash with very large, painful wheals on my legs, arms, neck and buttocks. I first day my PCP, since this is also an adverse side effect of Farxiga, as listed on their PI sheet. I was taken off Farxiga, and issued resolved itself for a few days. 3 days later, this same rash recurred. I called the urologist. Since I ran out of my prescription of ciprofloxin, it was concluded that the tamsulosin was the issue. The urologist stopped the dosage, but never made any notes on my chart regarding this reaction.
The urologist also decided the my kidney stones were too large to dissolve with medication, and I was referred to the surgeon on staff in this practice. We discussed the options for surgery, and I opted for laser lithotripsy. The surgeon then prescribed tamsulosin, as well as urocit-k, since further bloodwork from the lab showed I had a low potassium level, as well as low creatinine levels. This occurred 1 week before my surgery, after having a cystoscope exam. The rash returned with the large wheals on my arms and legs, as well as my buttocks. When I reported to the hospital for surgery, the nurse commented on the condition of my legs. I did not say anything, as the anesthesia was beginning to take effect. The stones were removed, and a stent was placed in my bladder.
8 days after the surgery, and I still was not feeling well, not having any type of appetite. I started noticing several, small red dots appearing over 80% of my body. I drove myself to the nearest emergency room. The attending physician ran some tests, and determined I was having a severe reaction to tamsulosin and urocit-k. I was taken off both prescriptions, and prescribed vistaril and famotidine and was sent home.
I was still not recovering very well, and was getting weaker. Roughly 1 week after my visit to the ER, I had the stent removed, and I notified this surgeon, IN NO UNCERTAIN TERMS, that I made a visit to the ER with a severe reaction to tamsulosin and Urocit-K. It was then I found out the urologist NEVER made a note on my record about the tamsulosin allergy.
4 days after that incident, I got up, went to the bathroom, and discovered blood in my stool. This caused my to call 911, and requested the ambulance to transport me to the ER where I was previously admitted. I was admitted to ICU, and my PCP partner, who as in the same group practice as my PCP, ordered a colonoscopy, as soon as I was stable and could be released from ICU. The colonoscopy was performed, and the gastroenterologist determined it was definitely ischemic colitis, caused by the adverse reaction to tamsulosin and urocit-k
