  • 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?

  • Blood sugar level while taking veltrex
    I been taking Veltrex for a viral infection in my eye for 3 days and today my blood sugar was 448.My normal blood sugar runs around 146.
  • Bloody semen after taking amlodipine besylate
    Was started on Amlodipine Besylate 11-13-14. Now -not quite three weeks later- I have bloody semen (Hematospermia)ranging from light pink to dark red. It was fine, and normal before. I feel it is the medication causing this.
  • Hair loss with metformin hydrochloride usage
    I have been taking the drug Metformin Hydrochloride for about 5 months and definitely find that I am losing hair which is a problem I have never experienced. Always had the healthiest hair, no problems. Well, I am finding that I am losing lair significantly and feel that the manufacturer of this drug should post that this is a side effect as so many have been complaining of the same side effect. I also began having problems with my teeth and always prided myself of having great teeth with no problems. I also understand that if there is a deficiency of Vitamin B12 that this together with taking this drug can cause these issues of hair loss and mouth/teeth problems. Again; I feel this should be totally and more readily informed to anyone taking this drug. I don't feel that anyone should have to give up things important to them to maintain a healthy way of living...I am going to see my physician and discuss what other options that may exist as I am not feeling very comfortable with this drug and the side effects I am experiencing.
  • 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.
