Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • 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.
  • I tested positive for methadone, i have never taken this drug (1 answer)
    I tested positive for methadone, I have never taken this drug. My Dr said I had to have taken it because it was there and that a false positive is out of the question. Could my meds cause methadone to show up on a urine drug test
  • I have been on amlodipine for approximately 3 months and have had terrible swelling in my legs and ankles along with pain and itching. should i be taken off this medication?
    I was previously taking Propranolol for blood pressure which didn't bother me at all, but last year I developed a breathing problem and was given Symbicort to help get rid of wheezing. The Symbicort and Propranolol don't mesh well so I was then put on Amlodipine. The swelling, pain and itching occurred right away. I asked the pharmacist about it and also my doctor and they both said a small percentage of people have this problem on this medication. I have tried many times to get my doctor to take me off of this medication but he insists it is best for me, but I disagree. I really don't want to have this problem for the rest of my life and I also won't have any skin left on my legs from the scratching, not to mention the pain that accompanies the swelling which seem to creep up to my knees and thighs and sometimes is so painful I just go to bed to lay down and hopefully the hydroclorithiazide will remove some of this water so that pain will go away. The doctor also doubled my dose of Losartin and Hydroclorithiazide. I'm up about 4-6 times a night going to the bathroom so it also interrupts my sleep. Is anyone else having this problem. I would prefer to go back on the Propranolol and get something other than Symbicort that won't interact with each other. Then I won't have pain and itching all the time. Does anyone have any input on this. I would really appreciate it.

    Thanks. Debbie CB
  • Unexplained hair loss
    Started Amlodipine 5mg about 5 years ago with no side effects and BP controlled until last year when increase noted. Dosage increased to 10mg Aug 2014. Unexpected surgery for bowel obstruction in Sept 2014 took toll on health for 4-6 weeks and also led to very swollen legs and ankles. GP reduced Amlodipine to 5mg again but BP stayed high, although swelling reduced! so prescribed Ramipril 2.5mg along with Amlodipine 5mg a month ago. Almost immediately started to notice hair loss which has steadily got worse in last few weeks and some ankle swelling again. Is medication mix causing hair loss or is it delayed reaction to surgery/anaesthesia?

  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • The sinus pain occurs when I drink alcohol most of the time but does occurs without the use of alcohol beverages. I get some relief by using a very hot towel for about 30 minutes and the Flunisolide. My doctor has given me MRI's, CAT Scans, blood work, eye pressure test and stress tests. I am retired military and I have traveled all over the world. The sinus pain began in Texas in 2005 after a severe sinus infection that was not treated properly by my ex-doctor.
