  • Furosemide - joint pain
    I went for my 6 months regular check up for my Atrial Fibr. on Dec. 15. The Dr. said everything is fine. I should have left it at that, but I told her my feet and ankles are puffy. She increased the furosemide pill from 20 units to 40 units. I must say I had been taking furosemide for a couple of years at the lower dose and had never once in all that time noticed any significant improvement in water retention. It never seems to make any difference whether I was taking it or not. So I started the higher dose.

    About 3 - 4 weeks later, my back, and legs started hurting. That went away and my shoulder was hurting - then my left foot was painful and swollen and I could not get my left boot on. Then that subsided and my right knee became painful. I can only limp. and the back pain has spread right through to my upper stomach. For a week or so, I could not wear my winter coat because it was too heavy on my shoulders. That seems to have subsided now and the pain is mostly in my upper stomach on the right side as well as my left foot. My foot is not as acutely painful now as it was. If it continues at this intensity it will not prevent me from doing anything. I just wish my upper stomach was not hurting. It's like a little hard knot in there.
  • Atrial fib and ibs, is there a connection?
    I felt wonderful, after a good night sleep and a nice breakfast. Took my heart medicine. Took off for an hour shopping and the A-Fib began with a vengeance and lasted five hours.

    During the time, interestingly, I had continuous IBS. If I had not used butter (an IBS trigger) on my toast that morning, would have had an episode at all? I wonder if there isn't a connection, one that I might be able to control to some extent. This is worth trying!
  • Febrero 2014 - daniel alberto romero
    The dosis: Flecainida-Diondel: 100 mg (twice a day) - Pradaxa-Dabigatran Etexilato: 150 mg twice a day - Bisoprolol fumarato-Corbis: 2.5 mg daily



    sometimes I get a chest pain and other days an acid sensation coming from the stomach. I assign these drugs as to be the cause as I never felt this way before.
  • Lansoprazole and vitamin c drug interactions (1 response)
    Whenever I use a gastric ulcer or gastric acid treatment drug and eat any food that contains vitamine C, like lemon, orange, etc. I get a strong skin allergy with swollen insecbyte type itching redness, that lasts about two days for each one.

  • From this study (3 years ago):

  • My dad takes the above mentioned drugs and has recently experienced a mild stroke after subsiding the predaxa for a week awaiting a surgery. Since the stroke recovery he is experiencing extreme fatigue which is so unlike him. Can any combination of these drugs cause an adverse reaction to one another and cause the fatigue?
