Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Is it okay to take co enzyme q 10 with levothyroxine
    Is it okay to take Co Enzyme Q10 with Lovothyroxine. Will it stop my Levothyroxine from working properly. I am also on Simvastaton. Would appreciate any advice on this.
  • Has anyone had negative experiences with simvastin or with omerprazole?
    I have been diagnosed as having diabetes but at this point I am not taking any meds for it, my numbers are excellent. I was not on a cholestral or blood pressure med until I was diagnosed with diabetes.
  • How long before the a fib stops after stopping cymbalta?
    Have been taking Cymbalta for 2 months for nerve pain and developed atrial fibrillation. I stopped taking the drug 4 days ago. Can I expect the atrial fibrillation to stop any time soon?
  • Can curcumin c3 complex cause very dry mouth?
    I have been takingall the above drugs since being diagnosed with Sarcoidosis in 1998-99. The only variation is prednisone which I take only when I have a flare. Itook my first Curcumin C3 Complex capsule 3 days ago. 500mg. I decided to start with one a day for awhile. After a few hours I had the dryestmouthever! Both days it has impimproved considerably by the end of the 24hours. A couple hours after takingit this morning mymouth is horribly dry again. It has to be the Curcumin since nothing else has changed for years. Anyone else with this problem? The reason I amtaking it is a couple of years ago my gastrodr wanted me to take it for my GERD but I didn't want to. But the other day I read that it helps with joint pain which I have badly so thought I'd give it a try for both reasons.
  • I have bipolar disorder and adhd and take nuvigil for the adhd and on occasion take lunesta for sleep. anybody else take this combination and what side effects or effects in general have you noticed? (1 answer)
    I'm anxious about any untoward drug interactions. I can't take stimulants because of a history of abuse. I take Nuvgil for my ADHD and it's the first time I can concentraate in years! I can't believe how much easier it is to organize, get things done, and read. Plus it helps the chronic fatigue I suffer caued by stage 3 renal failure.



    Anyone have anything or any experience that is remotely similar?

  • 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.
  • Synthroid and breast enlargement
    I have went from a B-C cup size to a D cup in the past 8-9 months.
  • Double vision on levothyroxine
    Diagnosed with under active thyroid in January 2011. Noticed onset of double vision in January 2014. Blurred vision and double vision worsened to such an extent that my glasses prescription has changed three times in less than 7 months. All the symptons I experience are a direct result of taking Levothyrixine and have increased as my dose has been increased.
  • I switched to armour ,it's not synthetic.
    I went off after 7 years on it when I discovered a link to a higher rate of lung cancer. I switched to Armour and it handled the hypothyroidism way better.

  • High blood pressure - find the right medication (2 responses)
    I was going through the menopause with all the usual drama when I started feeling awful. Doc said that my blood pressure was through the roof and prescribed Lisinopril. This gave me technicolour dreams and a runny nose, so he switched me to Losartan. This made me soooo tired that I didn't want to get up. So then I tried Amlopidine. Fantastic! I haven't felt this well since I was on my teens. My message is ... don't put up with side effects. Change your drug until you find the one that works for you.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 days ago):

  • After almost 8 years suffering these symptoms, and repeated increase of dose, I went off levothyroxine accidentally when I ran out at a time when I couldn't refill. Within one week vertigo and migraines had ceased almost entirely, and after a month off it my libido began to return. I had severe bouts of vertigo several times a day, migraines 5+ days a week, and NO libido for the last 3 years.
