  • Had cervical neck surgery on C2 thru C4 in February 2011. Left hand got numb about a year later. A local neurologist said I had carpal tunnel and I was operated on in April 2013. No improvement. Had additional neck surgery on C2-C4 in June 2013. No improvement. Could amlodipine besylate 10mg 1/day be causing the problem?

  • My 73 year old father in law takes all of these medications and he is not doing well. He has severe dementia that has come on in the last 6-8weeks. Each week he seems to be doing worse. He had gallbladder surgery September 1st, and has lost 65 pounds. At first, I thought he just wasn't feeling well due to the gallbladder surgery. On his birthday, 10-28 I realized something was very wrong. We have been going to doctors since and haven't gotten any real answers. I am concerned that he takes so many blood pressure medicines. What is clonidine used for? He takes .2 mg three times a day. He barely speaks is very weak, and has to be fed. We had an MRI and brain scan done. The neurologist we saw thinks it's frontal lobe dementia or that he may have fell and hit his head, he did not think it was a stroke. My question is if it's dementia wouldn't we have noticed over time. My father in law was sharp as a tack...no signs of memory loss at all. At first we thought he might have had a slight stroke but as time has gone on it seems to be something much worse. Any help. ideas, suggestions are appreciated. We are waiting to see another neurologist. Thank You!

    hi, i have recently gone thru problems w/ drug interactions. most pharmacists and doctors are unaware of MOST interactions that can cause severe probs. for instance, Tylenol can cause hypertension!! who would have thought?

    i grilled my brother, (PHD pharmacist)then took his info and went on line and was able to teach him a thing or two!!

    my b/p has been controlled on 2 meds for quite sometime, but high doses. atenelol at high doses can cause HTN! as well as severe panic disorders! other drugs, and this is not all, can cause HTN, like ibuprofen (fluid retention) vicodin, lorazepam w/ prilosec, antidepressants Like wellbutrin, most of the things i was taking was keeping my b/p way up!! what i did was go on line and read as many articles as i could by Googleing the med name along w/ a symptom, like, omeprezole and hypertension, or lorazepepam with another med, etc, i kept this up until i got enough info to put it all together and came up w/ my own resolution, then discussed it w/ my brother and doc. i am now on fewer meds and lower doses and am much better!!

    NEVER quit a med cold turkey! discuss weaning of all non essentials, one at a time. good luck. ALL meds are essentially poison and should be last resort. most mds and many pharmacists don't know much about multiple meds taken together. research and educate them. be proactive in your own health. it saved my life.

    I am just on my journey learning about these medications. My mother (85) is on many of these, and since she started Dilitiazem, is when many of her problems began. Then more meds to treat the side effects. From what I have found out is Dilitiazem was never intended for long term use, and will cause white matter in the brain, which is essentially dimentia. Which they have diagnosed her with. I believe this medication has created this problem. Dilitiazem also causes rash, dizziness and swelling which she also has, again with additional meds to treat these side effects. And yes, working with a doctor to reduce these medications.

    My husband as well as a friends husband had been taking propecia/finastride for prostate. My husband has suffered severe memory loss in short time, the other man is not even and disabled from medication, he can't even remember where his lives, this drug has some good for prostate, but is my opinion is more harmful, and should be pulled from shelf, I hope you find the answer, let me know.

    Hi ,
    About your 73 year old father in law, Statines can cause dementia like symptoms(side effect) and severe muscle damage it also can cuase kidney and liver faillure !!! So first quit this poison and recommend also to quit all medication for a while(only maybe the one or two he really needs) ...people need cholesterol but nowadays they are overmedicating everyone and people get medication for all negative side affects caused by the medication .Best thing is start from scratch ...see if there is any improvement and then look if and what he really needs . For now it is very likely medicines are doing more wrong then good ...read everything on the internet you can about statines (just type statines dangerous !!) and all the other pills your dad is getting .....think your father in law is victim of overmedication and especially from statines ...people over 50 donĀ“t need statines they are doing more wrong then good !!! (almost lost my husband by the poisoning effect of statines !!
