  • Support group for people who take Nexium
    Can't live with it...can't live without it. Nexium made b12, magnesium, zinc, iron, etc. levels low. Experienced many significant symptoms (fatigue, babinski, hair loss, restless legs, etc). Started taking supplements of vitamins and minerals. What a positive difference they have made. Also Developed hearing loss and tinnitus which hasn't improved much since taking the supplements. Any one else in the same boat?

  • Lasix with low blood pressure
    Hello My Medical Family,
    My mom has been in ICU for over a month now. She has been on lasix for over 6 years now and for two nights the hospital has not given her lasix. I can see her legs and arms puffy filled with liquids and it makes me so sad to see moms in this pain. Dr kept telling us that her blood pressure was too low for them to give her lasix but for the past 3 hrs her readings are 114/55. Im just so torn knowing that she has her own meds of lasix at home that i can bring to her. Can someone out there please help? So thankful to have a forum like this to express our concerns knowing they would be helped.

    Sincerely,
    Tony
  • What diet should i follow to maintain or better my health?
    Mirapex 1.5 and Mirapex .75 every morning
    Azilect 1 mg at bedtime
    Alprazolam .5mg as needed for anxiety
    Klor Con for leg cramps
  • Is glaucoma or other vision issues a risk of mirtazapine?
    I have had a large cup to disc ratio for about 10 years which my ophthalmologist has been watching every 6-12 months. I had a suspected TIA 1 1/2 yrs ago. I've been on Nexium for more than 10 years.
  • Incidence of rebound hypersecretion on stopping or tapering off pantoprazole?
    My doctor has just switched me from Nexium 20mg/day to Pantoprazole 40mg/2xdaily. Am I likely to experience rebound hypersecretion when I eventually stop taking Pantoprazole?
  • I try to stay very active despite my stroke two years ago, the more i do the more fatigue i experience along with nausea as soon as i get up in the morning. i take 600-800mg of gabapentin daily is it?
    Since my stroke August 2010 I ignore my pain and discomfort caused by everything from clothes, shoes, the AC coming on, my bed and being touched or come in contact with things around. I tripped on things because I can't feel things with my right foot. I have recently started back driving with my left foot. I wear a cloth glove on my right hand to help control the pain and the spasticity that constantly plague my right arm. Since 2009 I was the main care giver to both of my parents, my mother died Oct. 2012 from End Stage Renal Failure and now I care for my dad who is on Hospice with Dementia. In Aug. 1984, he had a massive stroke to his right side, a double bypass in 2004, an above the knee amputation due to a blood clot from an abdominal aneurysms removal operation. I admit my life is stressful, depressing and exhausting.

  • Low potasium and mood
    While being treated for cancer about 3 years ago and thus taking a number of blood tests, I was diagnosed with low potassium level and prescribed a regular dosage. I had noticed that when I forgot to take my potassium pills, I soon began to feel more depressed than usual and to feel anxious. Taking the ills soon alleviated these symptoms. (I have had depression for most of my life but long ago decided against taking any of the anti-depression Rx pills because I disliked their side effects, especially on my ability to think clearly.) Very recently I finally got around to looking on the Internet to see whether low potassium was associated with mood disorders _ and I found that it was. This site apparently didn't study anyone my age (I'm 78), so I decided to offer these comments. I have at least one grandchild who has been formally diagnosed with depression, and one who is ADHD. Before finding that the relationship of mood and low potassium was formally known, I had suggested to their parent in a low-key way that perhaps she and they should check with their doctors about their potassium levels. Now I'm quite sure that is something they and their doctors should consider. Meanwhile, I am glad to have found formal study of what had been to me only an anecdotal kind of belief that the two were linked. More importantly, in all my years of doctor visits, no doctor and no psychologist has ever mentioned this link to me. Therefore, I hope that somehow this link is brought more to the forefront of medical attention.
  • Avastin and low potassium
    I was put on Lasix twice to try to get rid of the swelling in the calf and foot of my left leg--then another water pill. Neither was successful. Recently I saw my geriatric doctor who examined the results of recent blood work. He asked me if anyone told me my potassium was low. Then said Lasix could cause that. ? Now I read that Avastin can cause that as well.

    This is the second side effect that could be from Avastin.

    I'm a type 2 diabetic who has had one blood clot in that leg. What, exactly is happening to that leg? Am in danger of having it amputated?

    No doctor has provided me with enough information. I don't think my geriatric doctor knows. My podiatrist said I had a weak pulse in that leg when I told him it had not been checked in two years!
  • Ranitidine is bad juju
    Used 3-5 times per week for about 1 1/2 years. Noticed:
    shortness of breath
    contstricted throat
    bloating
    chest pain/pressure
    heart palpatations
    dryness - more so than usual

    I quit taking it and felt much better within 2-3 days.
  • Cardio version caused fingernail abnormalities
    Right hip fracture. When prepping for surgery AFIB was found. Surgery was cancelled and they attempted to get AFIB under control. Finally, cardioversion was performed. When my nails started to grow out they all had two horizontal lines that cause the nail to break when it grows out to that point.
  • Hair loss with enbrel
    I have been on Enbrel for 4 months and started seeing significant hair thinning at the second month of treatments (50 mg once per week). My Rhuematologist suggested 800 mcg of folic acid. I am still losing hair although I am feeling so much better.
