  • What's the cause of heart palpitations
    E-fib or irregular heart beat, more noticeable at night. Have been on hormone replacement since 1995. Started on the patch that caused irritations then switch to 1% Androgel packets. Used 1/2 a packet per day for years, then libido dropped and started using full packet. Everything going good until I started using 25mgs of zinc some months later I started having heart palpitations.
    Stopped androgel and zinc, heart palpitations stopped after 2 weeks, almost afraid to start up again!

  • Lasix with low blood pressure
    Hello My Medical Family,
    My mom has been in ICU for over a month now. She has been on lasix for over 6 years now and for two nights the hospital has not given her lasix. I can see her legs and arms puffy filled with liquids and it makes me so sad to see moms in this pain. Dr kept telling us that her blood pressure was too low for them to give her lasix but for the past 3 hrs her readings are 114/55. Im just so torn knowing that she has her own meds of lasix at home that i can bring to her. Can someone out there please help? So thankful to have a forum like this to express our concerns knowing they would be helped.

    Sincerely,
    Tony

  • Low potasium and mood
    While being treated for cancer about 3 years ago and thus taking a number of blood tests, I was diagnosed with low potassium level and prescribed a regular dosage. I had noticed that when I forgot to take my potassium pills, I soon began to feel more depressed than usual and to feel anxious. Taking the ills soon alleviated these symptoms. (I have had depression for most of my life but long ago decided against taking any of the anti-depression Rx pills because I disliked their side effects, especially on my ability to think clearly.) Very recently I finally got around to looking on the Internet to see whether low potassium was associated with mood disorders _ and I found that it was. This site apparently didn't study anyone my age (I'm 78), so I decided to offer these comments. I have at least one grandchild who has been formally diagnosed with depression, and one who is ADHD. Before finding that the relationship of mood and low potassium was formally known, I had suggested to their parent in a low-key way that perhaps she and they should check with their doctors about their potassium levels. Now I'm quite sure that is something they and their doctors should consider. Meanwhile, I am glad to have found formal study of what had been to me only an anecdotal kind of belief that the two were linked. More importantly, in all my years of doctor visits, no doctor and no psychologist has ever mentioned this link to me. Therefore, I hope that somehow this link is brought more to the forefront of medical attention.
  • Cardio version caused fingernail abnormalities
    Right hip fracture. When prepping for surgery AFIB was found. Surgery was cancelled and they attempted to get AFIB under control. Finally, cardioversion was performed. When my nails started to grow out they all had two horizontal lines that cause the nail to break when it grows out to that point.
  • Pain in top & back of head after using vistrial
    I took hydroxyzine for 1 week & had the worst headache. The pain was in the forehead, top & back of head. There was a lot of pressure too. I was afraid of a bloodclot forming so I didn't take anymore. I didn't know this drug was an antihistimine but I cannot take this type of drug.
  • Eczema and birth control
    I have never had eczema in my life. A few years ago, in March/April 2012, I began taking birth control (Caziant) for the first time. About a month or two later, I noticed a red patch of skin on my armpit that wouldn't stop itching. I was given different types of fungal creams and corticosteriod creams and they only made it worse. Then, it started spreading to my arms, hands, pelvic, and breasts.

    I was told by doctors and dermatologists that it is eczema and allergies. Had an allergy test done and took out products I was allergic to from my diet and products. I was given singular for the allergies and hydroxyzine for the itching but I still feel itchy and scratch all the time.

    I have been vegan for 10 years, recently gluten free because of a slight allergy, I eat healthy, I stay away from everything I'm allergic to as much as possible, I wash with African black soap and moisturize 2-4 times daily with coco butter and coconut oil, I do not use perfume, I use fragrance free laundry soap and wear gloves when washing dishes. I am doing everything that is suggested but my eczema is only getting worse and spreading to my legs, neck, and face. It is so painful.

    The only thing I can think of is it being correlated to birth control. I have decided to stop taking the pill and hope that it may clear up and go back to how my skin was before taking the pill.
  • I got really horrible tremors.
    I had severe almost convulsing tremors, I made myself throw up the medication and the tremors subsided. My body feels really sore from the intensity of the tremors but I feel a lot better. I won't continue taking this medication, it was a nightmare.

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • Not sure why I'm itching so bad. It just started about 2 weeks ago and haven't started any new medicine around the same time. Could my medicines be interacting with each other?
