  • Alprazolam & amoxicillin
    Have Diverticulitis from having Diverticulosis. Have had high blood pressure for
    about 4 years and it is controlled with the Norvasc & Clonidine. Enlarged prostate is controlled with Flomax & Avodart. Meclizine is for vertigo, take 2 25mg per day, 1 Am & 1 PM. Take 1 Norvasc AM & 1 Flomax PM.
  • Can hydrochlorizide cause bhp symptoms in 70 year old male
    After suffering with bph(getting up 3 0r 4 times a night to urinate) having undergone a prostrate biopsy, my doctor took me off hydrochlorizide.
    Soon after, my bph symptoms went away.
    I take a 325 mg aspirin every day and have hypertension.
  • Has anyone experienced transient global amnesia from taking avodart?
    Began Avodart for enlarged prostate and having difficulty urinating....3 nights later had transient global amnesia, lasting about 4 hours. Doctor does not think Avodart triggered the amnesia Has anyone had similar experience?
    I am hesitant about going back on the Avodart but need to address the prostate issue.
  • Does enalapril cause dry mouth
    I am generally healthy and active for an octogenarian, but the dry mouth and swollen ankles do bother me.
  • Penis is not sensitive. difficult to ejaculate, little, sometimes, no semen produced
    I have no problem getting an erection; however, I seem to "lose interest" and full erection shortly after I penetrate. Viagra, etc. have not helped with this. As noted above, my penis is less sensitive and requires a lot of friction for me to ejaculate. Amount of ejaculate greatly reduced. I am looking to reverse any or all of these symptoms. Has any of you guys out there had any luck with this?

  • 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.
  • Amlo dipine and terazosin
    I have taken combination since 04/13 I have experienced ED lower testosterone and elevated PSA. Prior to that I was taking terazosin and hydrochorizide without any side effects. I stop taking the amlodipine during a juice fast and my PSA levels decreased when I stopped fasting and returned to taking the amlodipine my PSA levels rose.
  • Side effects of using terazosin
    I have been on terazosin for 9 days. The ringing in my ears is unbearable, dizzy in the night if I wake up to use the bathroom, intermittent throbbing heartbeat. Also very significant is dramatic decrease in libido and difficulty achieving satisfaction. Dose started at 5 mg at night, reduced to 2 mg. at night after two days and ringing does not go away. I have permission from my doctor to discontinue use and replace with Lisinopril.
  • Avodart and thrombocytopenia
    I have taken Avodart at a very low dose of 0.5 mg avery 4th day for the past 8 years. The Platelet count has dropped slowly during that time. But did not get below the normal range until 2 years ago. Stopping Avodart for 6 months allowed the Platelet count to increase 10%. But restarting Avodart for 3 months resulted in a 20% decrease. Avodart now stopped for 3 months again and the Platelet count has increase 5%. The restarting of the Avodart occurred as I thought that the Lipitor that I had been taking was the cause for the thrombocytopenia. I am 73 years of age.
  • Lantus and gastroperesis
    My husband for 10yrs was diagnosed as type 2 diabetic. Nov 10/13 he was admitted to hospital DKA blood sugar got to 38...severe vomiting, flu like symptoms, high blood pressure. During his stay he was put on insulin, nova rapid 3 times per day and Lantus. Over the coarse of him becoming sick, he had lost quite an amount of weight...during his hospital stay he went as low as 128 pounds from 165/170 lbs. Nov 20 released from hospital, now on insulin...for near three weeks he was doing well, eating, blood sugars were coming down and trying to scale the insulin. Dec 19/13 this all changed, vomiting, nausea, chest pain, weakness, constant hiccups, burping and extreme tiredness. I took him to emerg was told was most likely the flu. Dec 26th back to emerg due to vomiting 12 times per day, put on iv and tests were done, abdomen ultrasound, chest xray, blood work, etc all came back fine. Dec. 29 back to emerg same thing this point we were told could be gastroparesis. By the time Jan came same symptoms he had at this point been on blood pressure pills twice per day, stomach med's which they give cancer patients, taking 2 times per day and tecta once per day. Jan17/14 we finally had appointment with the endo...to discover his blood pressure was extremely low, now being weined off this medication. He did regain a bit more energy, could stand normal but still not eating much. We figured this was the answer, however to find it was not the vomiting continued etc and the sleeping, feeling cold all the time etc. weight still not going up much as food would not stay down. March 17/14 admitted to hospital where we were told gastroparesis. A scope of the stomach had been done prior and was clear. The nausea continued and was put on domperidone 3 times per day, and tecta once in the morning. This elimated the extreme vomiting however nausea sleeping, under weight, heartburn, etc continued. Frustrated we wanted a referral out of town which we have just went to, ct scans are going to be done and continue with the tecta and domperiedone...we have questioned numerous times since Dec/13 and for the last 7 months could it be the insulin, and many times were told no very unlikely. June/14 I again doing research on the internet stumbled across a forum where patients were blaming the lantus. Exact symptoms like my husband....at the end of our rope I told him to not take the lantus that Thursday night, monitor is blood as soon as he gets up. After a nights sleep blood sugar was 7 and he felt good. Normally around 10 am would start to feel nausea, this did not happen. He kept taking his pills for the stomach. After two weeks of the not taking the lantus ...he is eating, gaining weight, energy, no cold feeling, no heartburn etc. Now we decided to go off the pills, he now has his life back....he is able to resume a full day work, finding at night harder to sleep as he has more energy. For 7 months I watched him fade away to nothing where quality of life was nil, and not one medical professional even questioned the insulin. He continues to take the nova rapid 3 times per day, blood pressure is normal and no pills, blood sugars are under 10 still. More research needs to be out there for patients, the side effects listed do not even mention the symptoms he had. The binding agents? could they be the cause? There is NOT enough information on this drug,listing severe side effects. He did not have swelling or itching etc on the injection site. It took a frustrated wife and husband to take a chance on a gut instint and glad we did...
