- Females on diovan developing gout? (1 answer)
I recently suffered a gout attack for the first time in my life. I am 55, female and have no history of this condition in my family.
About a year ago my husband and I moved and my new doctor put me on this medication for pre-hypertension.
I have read mounting evidence that one major side effect of Diovan is elevated uric acid in the blood, which in turn can cause gout.
It was so incredibly painful that I never want to suffer a recurrence, but I don't want to take allopurinol as a preventive measure, as I have had two friends develop movement disorders (Parkinsons and dystonia) after taking it.
I would much rather find another effective blood pressure medication that doesn't cause gout. Anyone successfully switched medication?
- Is there a link between forteo and macular holes?
My 82 year old mother has osteoporosis and was taking Forteo for several years (stopped taking aprox. 2 1/2 years ago) She also has Glaucoma. She recently developed a macular hole and just had surgery to correct it. Is there any link between Forteo and macular holes or other vision problems? We are concerned that her other eye will develop a macular hole at some point, and want to investigate the possible connection between her osteoporosis and the taking of Forteo and her severe vision issues.

- What can i take for gout if i'm on xarelto (1 answer)
I have been on xarelto for 2 months after having a pulmonary embolism. But i have had an attack of gout since that doesn't seem to be going anywhere. I discovered that both voltaren and celebrex which I have taken for gout in the past are not to be taken while on xarelto. So i desperately need to find something to relieve the pain that wont cause a problem with the xarelto. Help!!!

- Lipitor caused gout attack.
My doctor gave me Lipitor to lower my Collestoral (240). Three days later I had lower stomach pains and the beginning of a Gout attack on my foot. I stopped taking the drug after 4 days when the full blown Gout attack came. I had been watching my diet and had not had a Gout attack for two years (my first one). Nothing changed except the Lipitor. I have no doubt the attack was brought on by the Lipitor. If you have Gout DO NOT TAKE LIPITOR (or its generic). Im now in my second week of pain and it's terrible.

- Cardiac stress test (thalamine ) and oxycodone
I am writing this for my sister-in-law, Maria, who is not able to do so and for whom my husband, her brother, and I are the POAs. In May of 2012, Maria had a recurring pain in her leg which took her to the hospital again. She was diagnosed for a second time as having a strained muscle. Then the hospital asked her if she had any chest pain. With her severe migraines she often has pain or feels like she has pain everywhere. The hospital asked her caregiver if she could have a chemical (thalamine) stress test as she could not stand for a regular stress test. Her caregiver thought that since her foot doctor had said that eventually they needed to know if she could withstand a foot operation she needed that a chemical stress test would be needed at some point. So her caregiver said to go ahead with the chemical stress test. The hospital apparently did not check her meds and her dehydrated condition upon entering the hospital or perhaps they would have thought twice about administering the test. She passed the cardiac part of the test but was rendered quite confused and unresponsive. She could not go home in that condition so was transferred to a skilled nursing facility where they could deal with what was nearly a catatonic state. There she displayed extreme confusion and inability to take care of herself in any way. She had to be hand-fed for a week or so. It was as if she had had a stroke. The hospital said tests for stroke had been inconclusive. It took her three months to recover to some semblance of her old self and another 3-4 months to be "there" and present in all ways. She still exhibits confusion from time to time but had shown some of that before her stress test. She had had a stroke in 2003 and it did leave her with some mobility problems as well as confusion sometimes.. Later we learned a friend of ours' husband had had the identical stress test in the same hospital and he also was taking oxycodone for a sore knee. He came out of that test nearly catatonic as well. So why is this not in the literature? Do no harm is a doctor's first charge.
