Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • What are the medicines you can take for a cold or/and flu who is taking pradaxa?
    I am taking all of the meds listed especially the newest drug, Pradaxa, which my Primary Doctor knows nothing about. He said since it is new there is no data out there on other medicines you can use with Pradaxa. I have now got the Flu and he doesn't know of any medication I can take with me taking Pradaxa. What am I to do, just die? Does anyone out there that is taking Pradaxa and had the Flu or even a cold what medication did you take for flu and/or cold? PLEASE WILL SOMEBODY HELP ME!
  • 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.
  • I took a musinex dm and acetominphen for congestion and a headache and fainted shortly after.
    I have fainted a few years ago and was told it was probably due to dehydration due to a couple glasses of wine and being hot. This incident was after breakfast and no wine!

  • Horrible bursitis while on simvastatin & low dose aspirin
    Horrible Bursitis in Hips and Shoulders. Resistant to multiple cortisone shots. Cost me multiple Orthopedic appointments and MRI.
  • 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.
  • A life of depression and fatigue (1 response)
    1) Family history of depression, 2) Diagnosed depression 1964-not treated until 1973, 3) Worked in medical field 35 years, 4) Emergency on-call 24/7, 5) Hospital 15 times major depression, 6) Tried nearly all MAOI, TCA, SSRI, SNRI, and ECT. 7) 100% Disability in 1998 for depression. Now at age 70 I have dysthymia, chronic fatigue, COPD, and PTSD. My recommendation to younger people - do not over stress,
    do not smoke, avoid horrific or traumatic situations and try to find some enjoyment in life. If you have symptoms like mine seek early treatment put balance in your life. The often heard recommendations - get plenty of sleep, eat properly, learn to relax and avoid bad habits should not be ignored, they are critical to good physical and mental health.
  • 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.

BEFORE THEN , WHEN TAKING SIMVASTATIN, CALFS, FET, TORSO AREA WOULD RANDOMLY CRAMP BEYOND ABILITY TO HANDLE. WOULD SOMETIMES GO TO E.R. OTHER TIMES LAY FLAT ON FLOOR, OR ELEVATE FEET. ALL IN ALL THEY HURT REAL BAD. JUST BEING ON TOILET, REACHING TO WIPE MYSELF , WOULD CAUSE PAINFUL CRAMP ON RIGHT SIDE.
