  • 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 while on simvastatin & low dose aspirin
    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!
  • Atrial fibrilation caused by levoflacin
    Have twice used levoflaxin 500 for diverticulitis both times resulted in flutter and atrial fibrillation. I have a history of a fib and have had an ablation. I don't recommend this drug if you have a history, or are prone to it

  • From this study (3 weeks ago):

  • I am taking the Lipitor to lower Cholestrol and Ramipril and baby Asprin post heart attack in 2007 to keep blood pressure low and help prevent stroke. Recently, I had stroke like symptoms, and was put on Clopidogrel. Tests for stroke were negative, but the Clopidogrel was prescribed as a prophylaxis. Shortly after starting it, I started having constipation, which I had never had to such an extent before that. I haven't seen anywhere that clopidogrel was associated with constipation, but perhaps the drug combinations is at fault. The shoulder joint pain could be just old age. I had a dislocated shoulder and torn tendons in left side about 10 years ago. I was told because of the damage, that shoulder would become arthritic, but that doesn't explain the right shoulder, which has similar symptoms.
