  • Do i need to quit drinking coffee while i take thrive?
    I take Cymbalta for pain relief from Arthritis and now on Metformin due to Diabetes 2 probably from lack of exercise because of the Arthritis pain. I am 70 years old and just started taking Thrive. I drink coffee a cup of coffee in the morning each day. Do I need to stop that habit?

    Are there other "oldies" out there taking Thrive? Please tell me your results with it. Thanks

  • 2 weeks after septoplasty, inside of middle/upper nose burns-why?
    The diabetes was diagnosed about 5 yrs. ago. On prednisone for a psuedotumor. Surgeon went little bit into sinuses to cut a piece of bone. That was to help drain sinuses; chronic infections and suspected link to psuedotumors. Probably blew nose sooner than recommended; clotting made difficult to breath. What's recommended to relieve that sort of pain?

  • Blood sugar level while taking veltrex
    I been taking Veltrex for a viral infection in my eye for 3 days and today my blood sugar was 448.My normal blood sugar runs around 146.
  • Thrush while on prograf
    I am a health provider at an emergency room and had a patient come in because of a food bolus and when i examined his oral/pharynx I noticed he had thrush. Patient stated it has been their for a while. Patient also stated he has been having progressive difficulty in swallowing. Pt is a kidney transplant patient and has been worked up for other causes of his thrush (including HIV, as per patient results neg) and everything came back negative. I can only conclude that maybe the prograf which is a immunosupressent can possible be the cause
  • Hair loss with metformin hydrochloride usage
    I have been taking the drug Metformin Hydrochloride for about 5 months and definitely find that I am losing hair which is a problem I have never experienced. Always had the healthiest hair, no problems. Well, I am finding that I am losing lair significantly and feel that the manufacturer of this drug should post that this is a side effect as so many have been complaining of the same side effect. I also began having problems with my teeth and always prided myself of having great teeth with no problems. I also understand that if there is a deficiency of Vitamin B12 that this together with taking this drug can cause these issues of hair loss and mouth/teeth problems. Again; I feel this should be totally and more readily informed to anyone taking this drug. I don't feel that anyone should have to give up things important to them to maintain a healthy way of living...I am going to see my physician and discuss what other options that may exist as I am not feeling very comfortable with this drug and the side effects I am experiencing.
  • Ranexa and erectile dysfunction
