  • Victoza and liver cancer (cholangiocarcinoma)
    My husband was recently diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer after taking Victoza for several years. The doctor discontinued the Victoza when the cancer was diagnosed but he actually started feeling better after he stopped it until the cancer started progressing. Since cholangiocarcinoma nd pancreatic cancer are similar, is there a link between Victoza and cholangiocarcinoma?
  • Metoprolol tartate* bad side effects
    This drug caused me to gain 25 pounds, it caused depression, exhaustion, vivid dreams, joint pain, personality changes, I walk/jog frequently and could no longer jog at all. At one point I had vision problems, things would "jump" so badly that I couldn't drive (I am not sure what that was, they said whatever it was it was not my eyes. Confusion, memory problems. I think my infrequent SVTs were made worse. It made my life a living hell. My children finally said that if I didn't do something they would! I found a new Dr. and I was taken off of it and a review of all my original cardiac tests came back totally normal and I didn't need it anyway. And the only way I would ever take this medicine is if it were a last resort. There are other drugs that would have worked that have a lot less side effects. A cardiac nurse told me that Metoprolol is one of the worst for side effects. My husband has serious heart issues and was put on this med..I have noticed a lot of the same changes in him and I will work to have them change his medication also.
  • Metoprolol & lisinopril, vs. carvedilol, lisinopril and warfarin
    Lisinopril 25mg provokes horrific depression, despair, inability to navigate back to upbeat, creative state and fear for survival. Dizziness, crippling vertigo, etc every time I move from rest. Reducing dose to 2.5mg makes side effects tolerable, with no noticeable change in therapeutic effect.

    Carvedilol caused renal failure, edema, coughing, panic-inducing painful allergic skin rashes, necrosis, healing took weeks where it had taken a day or less. Unable to walk up or odnw stairs unaided. Fell a lot Vision blurred, especially at night and when seeking perspective : driving.

    Warfarin made me feel like my body was made up of burdens foreign matter. Contraindicated diet was a blow to my post-domestic-violence, with sexual assaults, fragile ego, and capped the hopelessness triune of impacts.

    Metoprolol has caused awful heartburn since the first dose, with bloating and gas. Heartburn begins 12hrs after eating, very late at night. It keeps me from most activities. Very painful. Digestive upset I thought was from IV radiation / imaging seems to be metoprolol's doing.
  • Ear popping and swishing
    I had been taking blood thinners and 81 mgs. aspirin for about a year after heart surgery. I then stopped taking the blood thinner and my cardiologist recommended and adult aspirin (325mgs.)

    a few days later I started to experience a popping and swishing in my ears along with waves of dizziness. This happened most often when I bent over but could also happen when I was just sitting. I hoped these symptoms would go away in time as I really wanted to take the aspirin. It didn't get better so I discussed it with my cardiologist who told me to go back to the baby aspirin (81mgs.) The condition improved dramatically within a week but did not resolve completely. Over the past 5 months it is slowly improving until I now only have the popping/swishing/dizzy occasionally. I am hoping the problem will completely resolve in time.
  • Diovan nasal constriction
    46 year old male. Took Diovan HCT 160/12.5 once per day for 12 years for high blood pressure with very few issues. In 2012 dosage increased to 320/25. Immediately had stomach-related issues and severe nasal constriction right after taking the pill. Doctor changed prescription to take 160/12.5 twice a day. Stomach issues mostly resolved but severe nasal constriction occurs every time I take the pill, so now twice a day.



    Told the doctor and he changed me to regular diovan 160 2x a day. Still getting the nasal constriction but not as severe as before. The constriction generally happens within 10-15 minutes of taking the pill and lasts for hours.



    I would hate to change the medication as my blood pressure is controlled but the constriction is taking a toll on me. On good days I end up with a sinus-type congestion pressure for a few hours and on bad days I feel like I cannot breath. This happens twice a day, which makes it even more brutal.

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • A mild, but irritating itch and pimple-like rash developed on my neck and upper chest area. It was more irritating than anything and did not include any blisters. The rash could even have been mistaken for pimples/acne. Didn't even look red like hives. Itched all over the affected area. Skin was not dry or blotchy.

    About 10 days ago my face was extremely red and splotchy and I had a lot of pimples on my cheeks and around my mouth. But within a few days of using the Citrus Clear Face Wash my face immediately began to clear up, and now the splotchy redness is nearly gone.

    It's just awesome. Totally sweet.
