Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • I have water retention, high blood pressure, mitral leaky valve, have had 2 by-passes.
    Can all these drugs combined cause the water on the lung. Should I give them all up and just take natural vitamins. All my troubles started in May and I am getting worse. Can the furosemide aggravate the water on the lung, or has it caused the water on the lung?
  • Abdominal aorta aneurysm 5.7cm
    Jim was diagnosed at 69, nine long years ago. I was the caretaker until 6 months ago. Due to my health issues, I had to place him in an Alzheimer's Facility. He is in the severe stage of AD, has the AAA, and now behavioral issues and wants to just walk. He was transported a hospital to find medication to control his problems. DOES HE NEED ALL THESE MEDICATIONS?? SURGERY FOR AAA?

    Due to my health issues, I can no longer be his caretaker and I want him to still have a quality of life in an Alzheimer's Facility!!

  • Singulair to the rescue
    Antihistamines , even in small amounts, cause my prostate to swell immensely. Several months ago my allergies reached the point I had to take something. I had a physician's sample of 10 mg Singulair, so I took one. To my amazement, I got quick relief from extreme allergies, but my prostate SHRUNK as much as it did on finesteride. Since then I take my usual 2 mg hytrin each morning and my 10 mg Singulair at night and the combo has all but done away with my prostatic hyperplasia. NEVER HEARD OF THIS BEFORE, SO I THOUGHT I WOULD PASS MIT ON.
  • Chills associated with ibuprophen (1 response)
    I generally respond well to medication. I am a senior who has chronic pain from a c1-c2 fusion. Codeine works well, and I don't use a lot. Still, I sought alternatives to opiates for nerve pain. I lice in a colder climate. It took me quite a while to associate susceptibility to becoming chilled with Ibuprophen. I thought it was age and/or the weather. Perhaps these are factors; but it happens every time I use Ibuprophen. I share this hoping it can help others.
  • My ex-boyfriend's effexor effects (1 response)
    In my fifth year of living with my ex-boyfriend, he began taking Effexor and soon developed urinary incontinence, kidney failure and nightmares or night terrors so severe that he frequently screamed for prolonged periods, flailed and threw punches in his sleep. Upon ceasing to take Effexor, his sleep returned to normal. His kidneys also recovered, and he regained the ability to control urination. About a year after that, he was arrested for downloading child pornography, and I haven't spoken to him since. I'm not suggesting that Effexor caused him to become a pedophile, but it has been noted to produce personality changes in some users. It would be hard to ascertain whether any or all of these side effects resulted from the drug, but I would NEVER take it or allow anyone I cared about to do so. He had never exhibited any such symptoms before taking it, and I feel it ruined his life on many levels.

  • Urine/bladder control is a result of prostate cancer. I had radioactive implants 10 years ago and PSA has stayed less than .1 ever since.

    I have been taking Atacand 5 to 7 years and started felodipine 5 months ago. B.P is running about 140 over 85. Lung-breathing problems began 3-4 years ago. I've been taking Symbicort 3+ years and Started Spiriva 6 months ago. Breathing problems have become more severe with each passing year.
