Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 week ago):
Initially was given Metoprolol 25-50mg/day for high blood pressure 180/115. Was good and relaxed for about a week, then severe palpitations started to occur. Was taken off Metoprolol and put on Losartan 25-50mg/day and palpitations continued to be severe and frequent 2-5/day lasting a few minutes to an hour or two. Recovery was longer. Shortness of breath was accompanied. Was at cardiologist's office when a severe palpalitory event was occuring. He said I was having PAC's. I've been told PVC's as well in past visits to the doctors office. I stopped taking Losartan a week and a half ago. I've had several good days without palpitations occuring with a few days with severe palpitations occuring. I'm not sure if palpitations will cease, but I wasn't having palpitations or arrythmias prior to taking any of these medications. Again, I am seeing a marked improvement overall after ceasing these medications. I've lost 20 lbs or 10% of my body weight over the past 2-3 months and feel much better, but the severe palpitations do occur still without much warning. Last night I had an episode that lasted close to an hour and a half. After the palpitations reside and normal heart function returns, stomach sour sets in and I end up urinating frequently and also evacuating my bowells which help with recovery. My cardiologist says that the stomach sour is a result of the palpitations and not the other way around. My stomach isn't causing my palpitations. I will never take another med again in my life. It's poison to my system. How other's can tolerate this stuff is beyond me. I eat right and exercise everyday.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I was on cymbalta for almost 3 yrs.with great success. Was just switched to the generic..all hell broke out.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I have exhausted all drug options for overactive bladder due to "resistance." Including Botox injections that had moderate results but only lasted almost two months. Also, every injection was painfully felt although I was prepped with a pain minimizing treatment. I am searching for help if any of my medication are causing the resistance.
