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?

- I am wondering if xarelto is causing me to have leg tremors? (1 answer)
In May of last year I was in the hospital being treated for dizziness and high blood pressure. They ran an EKG but didn't discover anything, the hospital put me on 25 mg a day of metroprolol tartrate. I went to a doctor and she switched me to lisinopril for the entire summer and it caused a great deal of adverse effects such as nearly passing out on a daily basis, sick, tired all the time, and really feeling ill all day long. I was switched back to metroprolol tartrate and gradually increased to 200 mg a day. I went to a heart doctor and he put me on xarelto. After being on it for a bout a month, I noticed my legs starting to shake when I am in a particular position. This only started after I started the xarelto. I don't have an appt with my heart doctor till June again. Should I bring this up to my regular doctor? He didn't want to put me on warfarin but I am wondering what to do?
- Do any of my medications alone or taken at the same time cause positive test results for methamphetamine
I tested positive for methamphetamine and amphetamines when I took a test and I'm trying to figure out why. I don't take all the allergy meds at the same time,they are just the different ones that are in my medicine cabinet. The compound is a mix for psoriasis.
- Does high uric acid increases erectile dysfunction
I have been suffering from hypertension, diabetes. My doctor recently prescribed Olmesartan 20 mg after 2-3 months I checked and found my Uric Acid is more than 7.5 and had noticed that I have developed Erectile Dysfunction....Is this due to taking Olmesartan
- I have mild myasyhenia gravis and have recently had heart surgery. could surgery, or anesthetics aggravate or exacerbate myasthenia gravis symptoms?
I was also given intravenous antibiotics prior to and during surgery. i am wondering if this could have exacerbated Myasthenia Gravis symptoms that are usually controlled by mestinon.

- Sublingual b12 & insomnia
Approx 8 months ago I began taking 500 mg sublingual B12 in the am. I actually feel more energized (real or imagined?) but, I have also begun experiencing severe insomnia. I go to sleep easily but get up around 3 times a night. This interrupted sleep is a killer. Any suggestions will be appreciated

Horrible Bursitis in Hips and Shoulders. Resistant to multiple cortisone shots. Cost me multiple Orthopedic appointments and MRI.
- 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!
