  • Coughing up blood after using symbicort inhaler
    First time I used Symbicort Inhaler, I immediately coughed freely, but noticed it was bright red, blood. Second time I used it- same thing. Third time I used it, I coughed about an hour later a larger amount of blood in phlegm. I'm reluctant to use the medication any further-I will consult my doctor after the weekend.

  • Lipitor caused gout attack.
    My doctor gave me Lipitor to lower my Collestoral (240). Three days later I had lower stomach pains and the beginning of a Gout attack on my foot. I stopped taking the drug after 4 days when the full blown Gout attack came. I had been watching my diet and had not had a Gout attack for two years (my first one). Nothing changed except the Lipitor. I have no doubt the attack was brought on by the Lipitor. If you have Gout DO NOT TAKE LIPITOR (or its generic). Im now in my second week of pain and it's terrible.
  • Nexium improves my constipation
    Started taking Nexium 1 week ago and I noticed improvement with my chronic constipation.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • I started taking Lexapro in December 2012. I also started Trilipix again. I took it a couple of years ago with no adverse side effects. The rash started within a week of beginning the medications. I stopped taking the Lexapro about a month ago, thinking that was what caused the rash, but it is not getting any better. It is extremely itchy.


  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • The rash is very red and scaly. It started on my ankles and has spread to my arms and lower back. I stopped the lexapro about a month ago but the rash has not gone away.


  • From this study (5 years ago):

  • I have muscle pain and no strenght in my hands and sometimes get a tingling feeling in fingers, hands and arms. I also get tingling feeling sometimes in feet and legs
