Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • 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.
  • May iuuse viagra after a hemorrhagic stroke ?
    I had a hemmorhagic stroke in March 2014 and wonder if I may safely use Viagra
  • Timing of taking wellbutrin xl 300 with diovan 80
    I take levoxyl when waking up. After eating breakfast usually I take wellbutrin, diovan, and vitamin d together. If taking adderall, I would take at this time. Sometimes red yeast rice in morning, sometimes later in the day. Estradiol is taken before bed. Is it OK to take wellbutrin and diovan together or should they be spaced separately in the day?
  • Is bell's palsy related to polymyalgia?
    I had Bell's Palsy a year ago and now have symptoms of Polymyalgia -- stiff shoulders and hips and occasional back spasms.
  • Females on diovan developing gout? (1 answer)
    I recently suffered a gout attack for the first time in my life. I am 55, female and have no history of this condition in my family.



    About a year ago my husband and I moved and my new doctor put me on this medication for pre-hypertension.



    I have read mounting evidence that one major side effect of Diovan is elevated uric acid in the blood, which in turn can cause gout.



    It was so incredibly painful that I never want to suffer a recurrence, but I don't want to take allopurinol as a preventive measure, as I have had two friends develop movement disorders (Parkinsons and dystonia) after taking it.



    I would much rather find another effective blood pressure medication that doesn't cause gout. Anyone successfully switched medication?

  • Victoza and liver cancer (cholangiocarcinoma)
    My husband was recently diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer after taking Victoza for several years. The doctor discontinued the Victoza when the cancer was diagnosed but he actually started feeling better after he stopped it until the cancer started progressing. Since cholangiocarcinoma nd pancreatic cancer are similar, is there a link between Victoza and cholangiocarcinoma?
  • Diovan nasal constriction
    46 year old male. Took Diovan HCT 160/12.5 once per day for 12 years for high blood pressure with very few issues. In 2012 dosage increased to 320/25. Immediately had stomach-related issues and severe nasal constriction right after taking the pill. Doctor changed prescription to take 160/12.5 twice a day. Stomach issues mostly resolved but severe nasal constriction occurs every time I take the pill, so now twice a day.



    Told the doctor and he changed me to regular diovan 160 2x a day. Still getting the nasal constriction but not as severe as before. The constriction generally happens within 10-15 minutes of taking the pill and lasts for hours.



    I would hate to change the medication as my blood pressure is controlled but the constriction is taking a toll on me. On good days I end up with a sinus-type congestion pressure for a few hours and on bad days I feel like I cannot breath. This happens twice a day, which makes it even more brutal.

  • Stop taking Uloric after three days since blood test shows Uric Acid levels were at 4.2. After I am off Uloric the next day I get this dizziness now for two days.
    I stop taking Diovan that first morning to see if that drug was causing low blood pressure. Blood pressure is normal 123/64 in the morning in sitting position.
