Can't live with it...can't live without it. Nexium made b12, magnesium, zinc, iron, etc. levels low. Experienced many significant symptoms (fatigue, babinski, hair loss, restless legs, etc). Started taking supplements of vitamins and minerals. What a positive difference they have made. Also Developed hearing loss and tinnitus which hasn't improved much since taking the supplements. Any one else in the same boat?
Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- What is the relation between cerebral infarction and somonelence
34 years old female suffered perioral numbness and mild weakness of the left hand(left thumb) and slurred speech.
- Can i take a steroid while taking xarelto
I took prednisone for constant cough. had 3rd surgery on back one year ago. Had to patch spinal cord. Got blood clots. Had pulmonary embolism. Now have severe bronchitis. I know the prednisone will take care of cough, but what else?
- Was taking aspirin and bisoprolol fumerate for 8 months,after all tests ok was told to stop aspirin now having indigestion and heartburn. is connected and would it help if halved bisoprolol
Dr increased dosage from 1.25 then 2.5 and now 3.75 because still having some chest discomfort. However doctor said the bisoprolol did not stop any pain so why increase. I think all due to stress at work and when working notice felt great but after left anything that I let worry me seems to cause discomfort. After CT OK felt getting better then after told to stop aspirin started to get burning feeling in throat and sonetimes indigestion as well.Husband suggests stopping or halving bisoprolol as was not too bad on lower dose but Dr says leave as seems to be working.Seem to have swopped one worry and discomfort for another.
- I have ringing in the ears. is there anyway of getting rid of it? (1 answer)
I feel this tinnitus was induced from my taking the norgesic forte, that I no longer take for tension headaches. But I do take over the counter aspirin. Can the tinnitus ever go away?
- Can unexplained hypertension be cause by a partial thyroidectomy?
Doc is trying to figure out why the BP suddenly spiked. I started an exercise regimen after a stress test. I had to be on Metoprolol just to pass the test. Results were no heart-related issues. Lost 6lbs. since starting exercise and don't know if this is Thyroidal or not. No discussion with the doc yet of whether this is related to the thyroidectomy of the past.

- 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.
- Terrible excessive sweating from hydrochlorothiazide
I guess I fit the profile of who gets excessive sweating from HCTZ. I am a 65 year old female and suffered from excessive sweating for two years. With just very little exertion, I would pour sweat from the top of my head. It would run into my face and all over my hair. My hair would be ringing wet. I had heavy perspiration in the groin area and down my back also. I had to change clothing 2-3 times a day and wash up or shower that many times also. The doctor tried changing my Cymbalta and put me on Wellbutrin instead. It did absolutely no good. I went off the wellbutrin and back onto the Cymbalta. I did some research and saw that HCTZ could cause excessive sweating. Both my doctor and my pharmacist said that they had never heard of that. I went off the HCTZ, and my sweating stopped almost immediately. My doctor and my pharmacist were very surprised. I'm one of those people who frequently have different reactions to drugs than are typical. If you're having excessive perspiration and are on HCTZ, try going off of it. It just may be the culprit!
- Atrial fibrilation caused by levoflacin
Have twice used levoflaxin 500 for diverticulitis both times resulted in flutter and atrial fibrillation. I have a history of a fib and have had an ablation. I don't recommend this drug if you have a history, or are prone to it
- Ranexa and erectile dysfunction
I have experienced moderate ED with taking multiple heart and NO meds. This has been manageable and acceptable. Cardiologist added Ranexa (Ranalozine) 3 weeks ago and I am now experiencing complete erectile and ejaculatory failure.
