  • Support group for people who have Atrial Fibrillation
    Are everyone's hearts as I say "behaving this evening?" Had a full day without pvcs! Always a good thing! The last afib episode was in October! For some reason it always appears every 6 months! So I'm not due until April 2015! Will try to be positive and tell myself it's not going to happen!

  • 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.
  • Nuvigil & prilosec caused horrible experience
    Both the pharmacy and doctor didn't have this interaction in their system after 4 ER trips I finally looked this interaction up. The problems didn't appear for 3 weeks after I started taking Nuvigil. So I didn't connect the two...it was a horrible experience.
  • Coughing up blood after using symbicort inhaler
    First time I used Symbicort Inhaler, I immediately coughed freely, but noticed it was bright red, blood. Second time I used it- same thing. Third time I used it, I coughed about an hour later a larger amount of blood in phlegm. I'm reluctant to use the medication any further-I will consult my doctor after the weekend.
  • 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.

  • From this study (3 weeks ago):

  • I had my hip replaced in July. I had an EKG where they discovered I have afib. I was prescribed metoprolol for that. And i noticed that I've been getting sores and lesions on my legs and arms. I also have been getting hot flashes in the mornindgand have had some large bruising from what would seem like a minor impact.

  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • Mirapex helped to alleviate the severe restlessness (legs, feet, arms, shoulders - partial torso) but caused severe sleep attacks during the day - at work. I fell asleep any time that I got still - in my office, in meetings, while talking with people). I was prescribed Nuvigil to offset the sleep attacks, but taking Mirapex and Nuvigil together made me very sick - I couldn't function at work. Then I developed insomnia and was prescribed sleeping pills. The sleeping pills along with all the other medication was not good. But then I began to be able to stay awake all night, take a shower, go to work, go home - and stay awake another night. So if felt like my body was on a roller
    coaster. I could no longer work. I had to take FMLA leave and use all my sick leave to quit work until I reached retirement age. Since leaving work (8 mths ago), I have been trying to regain my physical and mental equilibrium. I have been taking Mirapex ER for approx. 2 months and the restlessness is MUCH less. I still have sleep attacks whenever I get still (day or night). My quality of life has declined very much because of the sleep attacks.
