Comments from related studies:
From this study (11 months ago):
In the last week my blood began appearing to have thinned significantly. When I test my Blood sugar my blood generally creates a small drop on my skin. In the last week it now appears to run or puddle.
The bleeding however still appears to stop quickly which makes me believe that clotting remains normal. My feeling is that this is related to the Glyburide.
Can you answer these questions (what is this?):
- I am experiencing difficulty in breathing and shortness of breath. i have been taking zyrtec . omeprazole and flomax for the past 5 years. has anyone experience this with any of these medication ?
I have had catscan of long and checked my heart and every test you can imagine , and doctors can't find the reason.I have had the shortness of breath for about 4 month now .
- Can gastric non-hodgkins malt lymphoma be cured by radiation treatments
I would like to connect with anyone who has this same diagnosis. Want to compare notes on treatment and prognosis.
- Flomax does not help with frequent night time urination maybe not bph but nocturnal?
Tried many and costly prostate related products to no avail. Dr says prostate only marginally enlarged but hard. Could not urinate at all after taking postoperative codein based pain meds. Wonder if nocturnal is a separate and differently medicated condition
