Male, 62, Sacramento, CA
I have been taking simivistatin for 7 years. I recently started taking generic FlowMax and it worked fine. My blood pressure at my last physical was 150/95 so I tracked it for a week and it seemed to stay the same, morning and night. My Dr. recommended that I take lisinopril (10 mg) once a day and when I did, after about 6 hours, I could not urinate for about 8 hours and when I did I experienced excrutiating pain. I had a swollen bladder for another 6 to 8 hours before the effects totally went away. I haven't taken another Lisinopril pill since then and have had now further problems. I do notice that my blood pressure is normal when I go to bed at night, but high when I get up. I assume that the FlowMax may be helping with the blood pressure for a few hours at least.

  • Experience with morphine and xanax
    I take MS contin for back pain, and xanax for anxiety. I was in the heart unit, and they decided to give me my morphine through the central line because I was having a lot of pain. The nurse pushed it in really slow, and afterword they asked me if I wanted my xanax, and I took it as well. 1 mg. I don't know how much morphine they gave me, but i began to hallucinate. I thought was dying..I remember trying to talk but the words wouldn't come out. I thought the nurse was asking me if I believed in Christ, and I said yes I love the Lord. At some point I was sure I had died, but I was calm and peaceful..there were several nurses in the room and I thought omg.. they've been keeping the secret of what happens when you die. I told them I was leaving because I wanted to go out in the hall, I was sure my deceased mother was out there looking for me, so I tried to remove my IV to get out of bed. They stopped me and I remember the nurse saying no its not your time. And I woke up the next morning.

  • Psoriasis and flomax
    I have been on Flomax for 4 years now and have been having a sore ulcerated mouth for about 3 years off and on. About six months ago I developed psoriasis on my scalp and have been using different medications described by my doctor.

    Then three months ago I got a patch on my leg. I started looking at medicines side effect. I found out on the internet last week that Flomax might be the culpert.

    It has been one week since I stopped taking it and today my leg psoriasis is starting to fade away. Has not itched all day today. TYJ!

    The patch on my scalp is doing the same. The scalp thickness has improved tremendously. I just hope I don't start having trouble with my BPH again, so for so good.

  • High blood pressure - find the right medication (2 responses)
    I was going through the menopause with all the usual drama when I started feeling awful. Doc said that my blood pressure was through the roof and prescribed Lisinopril. This gave me technicolour dreams and a runny nose, so he switched me to Losartan. This made me soooo tired that I didn't want to get up. So then I tried Amlopidine. Fantastic! I haven't felt this well since I was on my teens. My message is ... don't put up with side effects. Change your drug until you find the one that works for you.
