  • Pulmonary arterial hypertension and marijuana
    Marijuana does not cause Pulmonary arterial hypertension, instead it treats it. This study proves that the indigenous cannabinoid, anandamide, lowered aldosterone levels, and therefore would lower blood pressure (http://www.odon.uba.ar/uacad/fisiologia/docs/nuevos/expression.pdf).
    For more than 15 years, no blood pressure medications would keep my blood pressure down. I would be on two medications, yet hospitalized with a pressure of 200/130 when I stopped treating my illness with cannabis. Now, I am on no blood pressure meds, and keep my pressure down around 130/78. I would have had a stroke years ago without it.
  • 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.
  • Pruritus ani. and marijuana (1 response)
    i just got popped for smoking weed on a drug test 2 weeks ago. OF COURSE i was crushed by this news,BUT,i think not smoking the last 2 weeks has CURED my pruritus ani. I suffered and i mean suffered with this the last 2 years and tried giving up everything i thought might have caused this. Certain foods,beer,diet soda to no prevail. I havent felt this good down there in over 3 years!!!! If i knew that was what was causing this,i would of quit years ago and never got popped in the first place!!!! And yes,i would rather give up smoking weed then feel what i felt the last few years.
  • 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.
  • Victoza and liver cancer (cholangiocarcinoma)
    My husband was recently diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer after taking Victoza for several years. The doctor discontinued the Victoza when the cancer was diagnosed but he actually started feeling better after he stopped it until the cancer started progressing. Since cholangiocarcinoma nd pancreatic cancer are similar, is there a link between Victoza and cholangiocarcinoma?

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (4 days ago):

  • I've lost 65 lbs and all of my appetite during the last 12 months. I quit taking the Metformin 6 months ago and that hasn't changed anything. I've had a CT Scan and a Gastric Emptying Study done to confirm the diagnosis. I'm having a colonoscopy and an esphogealendoscopy in January to find any further cause of the damage.
