Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Is any drug known to cause, prevent, or treat scintillating scotomata?
    Adult lifelong occasional scintillating scotomata without nausea or headache.
    Each episode lasts about 20 minutes. Brought on by focussed stress.
    Now much more frequent.
  • Ok to take losartan and zoloft together before bed? (2 answers)
    I've been on Losartan for a year without any problem. Six weeks ago I started on 25mg of Zoloft for general anxiety. All of a sudden during cardio exercise I feel lightheadedness and a feeling like I could pass out! I stop for a moment and then I feel ok. Is this normal? I thought I'd be getting more used to it after 6 weeks, but this is something new so I figured that it is now in my body and fatigue is normal. Or perhaps taking bp meds and Zoloft might be the cause.
  • Can i use a lidocaine patch for back pain if i am taking prograf for anti-rejection post lung transplant?
    Transplant was 6 years ago.
    Has suffered from PTLD on several occasions before.
    Recently hospitalized for Periodic Fever Syndrome.
    Received Interleukin 6 blocker last week and fevers have resolved, but back pain is still present
  • Can i take phentermine with amlodipine besylate?
    I informed the doctor that I was taking the blood pressure med and really wanted to lose weight but need a little help. Put me on B12 shots 1x per week and phentermine 1x per day along w/ multi-vit.
  • Which is the preferred blood pressure med. to protect a 60+ diabetic type i w/ hypoglycemia unawareness. note ramipril after many years of use caused coughing - switched to losartan potassium - more (1 answer)
    Recently switched from Ramipril to Losartan Potassium since Ramipril was causing me to cough more and had been on this med. for years.
    Recently, have had 3 bad episodes of hypoglycemia esp. during the night. I was wondering if the BP med Losartan Potassium 25mg could be causing these? The BS levels have been very low in the 30-40 ranges. I have read the recent article of the study done on Losartan that women (esp. those 60+) maybe should not be on this med.
    I don't have elevated BP unless I see a doctor!! (Hx. of white coat syndrome) but my practitioner and former doctors want to protect my kidneys although no labs show a problem w/them. Any suggestions of any other BP med. that I could take that will not affect my blood sugar levels or cause me to cough!! I do have a history of MVP.
    Thanks so much for information you can share!
