Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Can i give up using losartan 50mg for hypertension (2 answers)
    I have just started taking losarton potassium 50mg once in the morning and i am not feeling comfortable since i have just recently been diagnosed for HIGH BP.

    I keep getting suicidal thoughts and i want to get out of the medicne!!
  • Are cannibinoids / cbd a suitable treatment for neurosarcoidosis instead of prednisone?
    I am a 47 year old white male. 1 year ago I started to feel tingling in fingertips, which evolved into numbness, and spread up both arms and feet / legs. An MRI showed significant inflammation of cervical spinal cord. Monitoring and some treatments for most of the year to determine cause. Positive ACE blood test indicated possible sarcoidosis. Chest CT scan and biopsy of lymph nodes confirmed neurosarcoidosis. I met with a pulmonologist who differed to the Neurologist for treatment protocol because the neurological problem was the primary presentation. Neurologist plans to prescribe Prednisone (dosage not yet confirmed, but may be up to 50 mg per day, for up to 1.5 years). I have done some research on CBD (cannabinoids), and it appears that there is sound medical results from this alternative (instead of prednisone), however I have not found sufficient information to answer my two main questions.

    My questions are: 1) Is CBD / cannabinoids a more safe and effective treatment for neurosarcoidosis than prednisone? 2) While prednisone has significant health side effects, the treatment benefits are notable; however are the treatment benefits of CBD / cannabinoids sufficient enough to be used instead of prednisone?
  • Trying to see if there a link between extended use of pentasa for crohn's and its aspirin base causing bleeding hemorrhoids and low blood counts resulting in multiple myeloma
    I have had Crohn's since I was 13. I was given Pentasa for my condition for 10 years. In December of 1999 I had messed of surgery at the Cleveland Clinic which resulted in multiple surgeries because of surgical errors. I believe that long term use of the drug causing bleeding hemorrhoids lowering my red blood count to dangerous levels allowing the Multiple Myeloma to develop in my bone marrow and placing dangerous levels of proteins in my kidneys when discovered in late 2008
  • Simvastatin and paralysis
    Have been on Simvastatin 20 mg for over a year for high cholesterol, high trygl and low HDL. Had sudden onset paralysis on May 31, was taken to emergency room unable to move my lower limbs and transferred to a large metro hospital where i had previous (6) low back surgeries. Under went 2 mylograms, 5 mri's with and with out contrast head to butt. I have a electrical neuro stimulator in my abdoman for Gastro Paresise, had to under go surgery to remove this device so dr's could do MRI'S. Results were unremarkable clear. Been 3 1/2 weeks and still paralyzed from the waste down, have decreased sensation from waste to nipples. This has increase another 2 inches the last 4 days. My hands are numb as well as arms. Have uncontrollable tremors in both hands and now my head also shakes. Lost bladder function, difficulty sleeping, swallowing, vision has worsened. Have lost my reflexes in lower limbs, all in my right hand up to neck, still have a stitch in my left upper limb. No longer have reflexes for my chin or jaws. My blood pressure has never been over. 100/60 now is 130+ over 90+, pulse has always been around 50-60 and is now 95+. B P and Pulse can be 135/95 and pulse can be 125 and in 5 minutes can drop to normal range. Saw my neuro surgeon yesterday and he said one of the things that could cause all of this is the simvastatin that i'm on. Since the release from the hospital 3 weeks ago i have had to discontinue my simvastatin. due to lovanox and coumadin therapy to prevent blood clots. Things have not gotten better but have progressively gotten worse. looking for answers i'm 45 years old and want to walk again.

  • Avoid lisinopril or any ace inhibitor
    This was the only drug I was taking other than low-dose aspirin 3x/week.
    Within 2 days I began coughing, as though something was deep in my lungs; became long severe coughing fits than threw out my back, sore all over. Then began runny nose, exhaustion, occasional mild chest pain. Not connecting the dots, after a month of this I returned to my dr., who prescribed an antibiotic and inhaler, saying I had asthma! After a week starting feeling worse, sore throat and sore lungs from coughing, in bed from exhaustion.
    After reading on-line about identical symptoms from LISINOPRIL, I immediately stopped it; now, 2 weeks later I am beginning to feel better -- cough much better. I am hoping I will be one of the lucky ones who does not have the cough continue. By the way, this drug reduced my bp from 140/100 to 110/80 BUT I'd rather have high bp than take this poison.
    Now I learn than many deaths have resulted from use of Lisinopril. Had this drug caused my death, no one would know my story as I have no relatives to tell it; am assuming many unreported have died and of course are not able to go on-line and tell their story post-death!
    All I can do is ask WHY is this drug allowed to be sold -- even stranger, in my case the drugstore is giving this poison away at no charge -- a first; but WHY?
  • Garcinia and high blood pressure
    I am taking a weight loss pill last couple of days. Last two days after I ate cheese, I had headache and high blood pressure,nausea. Yesterday whole day I had stomach upset, pain, nausea. I am not going to take ot anymore.
  • A life of depression and fatigue
    1) Family history of depression, 2) Diagnosed depression 1964-not treated until 1973, 3) Worked in medical field 35 years, 4) Emergency on-call 24/7, 5) Hospital 15 times major depression, 6) Tried nearly all MAOI, TCA, SSRI, SNRI, and ECT. 7) 100% Disability in 1998 for depression. Now at age 70 I have dysthymia, chronic fatigue, COPD, and PTSD. My recommendation to younger people - do not over stress,
    do not smoke, avoid horrific or traumatic situations and try to find some enjoyment in life. If you have symptoms like mine seek early treatment put balance in your life. The often heard recommendations - get plenty of sleep, eat properly, learn to relax and avoid bad habits should not be ignored, they are critical to good physical and mental health.
  • Bloody semen after taking amlodipine besylate
    Was started on Amlodipine Besylate 11-13-14. Now -not quite three weeks later- I have bloody semen (Hematospermia)ranging from light pink to dark red. It was fine, and normal before. I feel it is the medication causing this.
  • Ranexa and erectile dysfunction
    I have experienced moderate ED with taking multiple heart and NO meds. This has been manageable and acceptable. Cardiologist added Ranexa (Ranalozine) 3 weeks ago and I am now experiencing complete erectile and ejaculatory failure.
