  • 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?
  • I have mild myasyhenia gravis and have recently had heart surgery. could surgery, or anesthetics aggravate or exacerbate myasthenia gravis symptoms?
    I was also given intravenous antibiotics prior to and during surgery. i am wondering if this could have exacerbated Myasthenia Gravis symptoms that are usually controlled by mestinon.
  • Should call my doctor
    I have been on the above drugs three days. Tody I have 100 degree fever and a cough the often results in a cough head ache. I also have a post nasal drip.
  • Nose bleeds after meningioma surgery(post 11 months)
    I have been experiencing bloody nose, 3 in the last week. 2014 I had a meningioma removed, never experienced any bloody noses until now, I know it is dry because of winter, but there us no warning, it lasts for 20 min then it is gone no dizziness, I do have vertigo- slight case
  • Can eating cannabis edibles cause a-flutter and a shigella infection?
    It turned out to be food poisoning and I spent 10 nights in the hospital - 2 in the ICU. Is it possible that eating a cannabis edible caused the food poisoning and the A-Fib/flutter? They were going to do a spinal tap because of the headache thinking I might have meningitis. I'm confused at what really happened and why I got so sick. They put me in the ICU when my blood pressure dropped to 70/40. I guess I want to know if the cannabis could cause my shigella bacterial infection or if that was different from my heart issues.

  • Furosemide - joint pain
    I went for my 6 months regular check up for my Atrial Fibr. on Dec. 15. The Dr. said everything is fine. I should have left it at that, but I told her my feet and ankles are puffy. She increased the furosemide pill from 20 units to 40 units. I must say I had been taking furosemide for a couple of years at the lower dose and had never once in all that time noticed any significant improvement in water retention. It never seems to make any difference whether I was taking it or not. So I started the higher dose.

    About 3 - 4 weeks later, my back, and legs started hurting. That went away and my shoulder was hurting - then my left foot was painful and swollen and I could not get my left boot on. Then that subsided and my right knee became painful. I can only limp. and the back pain has spread right through to my upper stomach. For a week or so, I could not wear my winter coat because it was too heavy on my shoulders. That seems to have subsided now and the pain is mostly in my upper stomach on the right side as well as my left foot. My foot is not as acutely painful now as it was. If it continues at this intensity it will not prevent me from doing anything. I just wish my upper stomach was not hurting. It's like a little hard knot in there.
  • 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!
  • Hydrochlorothiazide made me pour sweat
    Hydroclorothiazide made me absolutely pour sweat for two years. My doctors could not find out what was causing the problem. It took little exertion for me to start dripping sweat. My hair would be absolutely soaked...especially in the summer, but if I was cleaning house in the winter also. I finally did my own research and proposed to my doctor that HCTZ was the problem. He did not agree with me, but agreed to let me go off of it for a short time. The profuse sweating stopped almost immediately.
  • Metoprolol tartate* bad side effects
    This drug caused me to gain 25 pounds, it caused depression, exhaustion, vivid dreams, joint pain, personality changes, I walk/jog frequently and could no longer jog at all. At one point I had vision problems, things would "jump" so badly that I couldn't drive (I am not sure what that was, they said whatever it was it was not my eyes. Confusion, memory problems. I think my infrequent SVTs were made worse. It made my life a living hell. My children finally said that if I didn't do something they would! I found a new Dr. and I was taken off of it and a review of all my original cardiac tests came back totally normal and I didn't need it anyway. And the only way I would ever take this medicine is if it were a last resort. There are other drugs that would have worked that have a lot less side effects. A cardiac nurse told me that Metoprolol is one of the worst for side effects. My husband has serious heart issues and was put on this med..I have noticed a lot of the same changes in him and I will work to have them change his medication also.
  • Metoprolol & lisinopril, vs. carvedilol, lisinopril and warfarin
    Lisinopril 25mg provokes horrific depression, despair, inability to navigate back to upbeat, creative state and fear for survival. Dizziness, crippling vertigo, etc every time I move from rest. Reducing dose to 2.5mg makes side effects tolerable, with no noticeable change in therapeutic effect.

    Carvedilol caused renal failure, edema, coughing, panic-inducing painful allergic skin rashes, necrosis, healing took weeks where it had taken a day or less. Unable to walk up or odnw stairs unaided. Fell a lot Vision blurred, especially at night and when seeking perspective : driving.

    Warfarin made me feel like my body was made up of burdens foreign matter. Contraindicated diet was a blow to my post-domestic-violence, with sexual assaults, fragile ego, and capped the hopelessness triune of impacts.

    Metoprolol has caused awful heartburn since the first dose, with bloating and gas. Heartburn begins 12hrs after eating, very late at night. It keeps me from most activities. Very painful. Digestive upset I thought was from IV radiation / imaging seems to be metoprolol's doing.
