  • Wondering if dexilant is causing my problem (2 answers)
    have had my prostate checked by urologist and prostate is slightly enlarged but not enough to cause problems.urinary track ok,bladder ok etc.
    drank a liter of water and bladder emptied ok in test.
    seem to urinate good after consuming coffee or beer but lately having more whiskey than beer.
    when I drink whiskey I don't urinate much in evening but have to get up 3 or 4 times during the night to urinate.amlodipine,ramipril,atenolol are for blood pressure.
    rosuvastatin for cholesterol,methocarbonal for sore back,pseudoephedrine and ibuprofen are for sinus headaches caused from smoking cigarettes.
    so anybody out there think dexilant might be causing my urinating during the night problem ?
    plus when I do go during the night I don't seem to completely empty my bladder!
    any ideas ?

  • Could this drug cause periodontal bone loss, bone loss around teeth (4 answers)
    Do you suffer from periodontal bone loss or periodontal disease, or bone loss around teeth after taking this drug? Are your sodium levels low after taking this drug? I am a dentist and keep my teeth plaque free, but have had periodontal bone loss for which, I believe, must be drug related.

  • Heavy breathing caused from tenex?
    My son is on tenex and is doing this heavy breathing. Not sure if its another motor tic or if it is from the medicine. Any other experiences with this and tenex?
  • Intuniv and tardive dyskenesia
    My daughter has autism and hyperactivity. She was treated with Intuniv for about 2 years. She developed tardive dyskenesia. I am currently in the process of finding ways to treat it. I have tried Zantac, baclofen, no treatment. so far those have not helped. I am going to try vitamin B6 now in hope of alleviating the condition.
  • Skin burning sensation with delsym (1 response)
    I had been sick for about a week and had been taking Sudafed every 4-6 hours for congestion for the past couple of days. I also take wellbutrin SR daily as an antidepressant. I started taking the suspension formula of Delsym 12 hour release about 24 hours previously (so I had already had two doses) I took my third dose. Within 10-20 minutes of swallowing it I started to feel things were somewhat surreal and then noticed a skin burning sensation particularly on my neck and face. The skin burning sensation intensified spreading throughout my body and caused a panic attack. The skin burning persisted off and on for at least the next 12 hours. I have not taken delsym since and am no longer experiencing the feeling.
  • Bad nosebleed (sudafed related?) (1 response)
    I have the rhinitis as a result of rebound syndrome from using nasal sprays for years. I use the Flonase to somewhat alleviate the need for the over-the-counter sprays (first two drugs listed). In spite of that, I rarely, if ever, have nosebleeds. I also rarely, if ever, get colds. However, yesterday I decided I definitely was getting a cold and decided to take some 12-hour Sudafed. I took my second dose a couple of hours early and next thing you know my nose was bleeding fairly profusely all night. I tried the recommended method of tilting the head forward and holding the nose shut for 10 minutes but all that did was fill my head with blood and when I let go all kinds of blood and clotted blood came out of my nose and mouth making a huge mess. What worked for me after hours of trying was tilting the head slightly back, putting up with the blood trickling down my throat and trying not to breathe or irritate the bleeding nostril. Periodically I'd have to cough up or blow out some clotting because it became too much to handle but eventually this method worked for me. I've decided to refrain from taking anymore Sudafed or nasal sprays for the time being at least until I'm sure the nosebleed is completely gone.
  • Vomiting & low blood pressure on 4 ml intuniv
    My son (8yrs old) has had an amazing year of improvement during 14 months on intuniv. Last week we increased from 3 to 4 ml because of weight gain and an increase in symptoms. After the third day of the increased dose he complained of a headache and began vomiting, which he continued to do for 6 hours. I later learned that these symptoms, as well as dizziness, were all caused by a decrease in his blood pressure. I sure wish I had been aware that there was a possibility of this happening, because I thought he had the flu and allowed him to suffer untreated all night long and well into the morning. We had to spend the night in the hospital under observation and now we are back to 2 ml. A dose I do not think will be effective. The symptoms that we need addressed immediately are: lack of focus and organization, being easily aggravated by other people, and hyperactivity. We have tried stimulants before and they were not a good match for my son, making his SID symptoms more intense and he was very underweight. I think we will be seeing a neurologist soon. What are our options?
