Information of the patient in this study:
Conditions: Beta blockers overdose, Acid Reflux
- Atenolol (atenolol): used for 2 - 5 years
- Omeprazole (omeprazole): used for 2 - 5 years
Drug interactions have: moderate long-term memory loss
On Feb, 8, 2014: 931 males aged 63 (±5) who reported to have interactions when taking Atenolol, Omeprazole are studied
Comparison with this patient's adverse outcomes:
|Interaction||Number of reports |
among males aged 63 (±5) who take the drugs
|Long-term Memory Loss||19 (2.04%)|
(as an adverse outcome could be a symptom of a condition, additional studies are listed to help identify the cause: for example, regardless of which drug is taken, how many female HBP patients aged 50 (±5) have nausea)
|Symptom||Number of reports |
among males aged 63 (±5) who have the condition, regardless of which drug is taken
|Long-term Memory Loss in Beta Blockers Overdose||1 (7.69%)|
|Long-term Memory Loss in Acid Reflux||7 (0.71%)|
(as an adverse outcome could be a side effect of a drug, additional studies are listed to help identify the cause: for example, how many female Aspirin users aged 50 (±5) have nausea)

From this study (4 weeks ago):
I have been struggling with sinusitis for almost 2 years now and they can't stop the dripping my nose from running,down throat to chest, lots of plegm, and have been congested for over a year and half. Since then, have tried me on every sort of antihistimine, Loradine, Zyrtec, Certirizine, and fluticasone spray, which didn't stop running/congestion. Been to ER three times to get on antibiotics since also caused gum disease/gingivitis per Periodontus who states it's underlying medical not dental. Also started taking regular OTC sudafed for congestion, and occasional cough/congestion. Now allergist says my IgG Immoglobins are high and was told that since I have constant bacterial infections. Allergist believes running nose/congestion is from a fungus infection or vasomotor rhinitis and need culture. Am waiting to see ENT. Prior to this last 2 years, my sinus was always controlled and maybe every year to two years, an infection occurred and antibiotics quickly got rid of it, but not this time. I read infections could also cause liver enzymes to rise to and my past blood tests in 2008 shows only had a mild increase in SGPT ALT only. Prior use, I used pain pills, vicodin/codeine/darvocet/, but stay away from then now due to liver enzymes in ALT rising, and only use motrin, sleeping med., cymbalta and occasional fioricet. Had gall bladder infected and removed, and tests show fatty liver and slight kidney lesion, but not enough for them to do anything.
help on Apr, 9, 2014:
F, 48, fibromylagia, chronic sinusitis, repeated infections, which believe long-term pain meds cause elevated liver enzymes, went off most, and now because of constant trying of allergy meds, and can't stop running nose, long term infections of bacteria and possibly fungus, so not sure what is causing elevated enzymes.
I receive enough benefit from taking these medications, with varying results depending on circumstances to justify their continued use.
Suspicion that general muscle pain is caused by meds. Both Tylenol and Tramadol are taken TID to QID rather than PRN.
