Welcome, @Aries! Here is some data regarding zyrtec and kidney stones: http://www.ehealthme.com/ds/zyrtec/kidney+stones
Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- I am experiencing difficulty in breathing and shortness of breath. i have been taking zyrtec . omeprazole and flomax for the past 5 years. has anyone experience this with any of these medication ? (2 answers)
I have had catscan of long and checked my heart and every test you can imagine , and doctors can't find the reason.I have had the shortness of breath for about 4 month now .
- Can humira cause a tremor and neurological symtems (1 answer)
I have had hypertension for approximately 15 Years which the doctors and cardiologist have struggled to get under control, I have been taking 6 medications daily. My weight over the past 15 years has been constantly around 16 stones 7 lbs, over the last 4 months I have dieted and managed to drop my weight to 14 stones 4 lbs, my G.P. has firstly dropped my Ramipril 10mg to 5mg & also my Amlodopine the same, I have come off Benzoflumazide altogether, so things are truly looking good on this front.
Just over 7 years ago I was diagnosed with Pulmonary Sarcoidosis & Rheumatoid Arthritis very close together which are both autoimmune diseases and was prescribed a high dose of steroids and later Methotrexate, my health deteriorated to a stage where I could not get about or even turn my wrist to wipe my own bottom. At this point I was prescribed Humira Anti-TNF alpha drug which has up to now been fantastic it was life changing as it gave me my life back and allowed me to work as I am a self-employed Stone Carver & Letter Cutter. Over the past 20 years I have had a Hand Tremor that I have always blamed on my long use of vibrating air tools, but over the past month or so I have developed a more noticeable Hand Tremor where food is falling off my fork, hand writing has become eligible, I am pressing double digits on my IPad, and I am struggling to hold my chisel hand steady to Letter Cut, worst of all, my Rheumatologist has take me off my Humira because of the Tremor and protocol says this should be done until my condition is identified, which may put me back to square one, prior to this my tG.P. had arranged for me to see a Neurologist who I have not yet seen.
Can anybody tell me if Humira is the likely neurological cause of my tremor ?

- Drugs are killing us
Chronic sinusitis, hands shake, heart races. These conditions are horrendous. If I don't take this drug I can't breathe. Any suggestions would be appreciated otherwise I will have to live in the Dominican Republic where these symptoms disappeared immediately as I walked up hills and never once used my Ventolin. Go figure.
- Dysphagia with flomax to move kidney stones
I was experiencing extreme pain in right upper abdomen and was checked at the hospital and kidney stones were diagnosed. Flomax was prescribed in september 2014. I only took about 2 days worth after pain stopped. But then pain returned in December so i decided to continue taking flomax but i suddenly got stroke like complications so i went back to the hospital where they removed the kidney stones. But my dysphagia is still holding on today February 2 2015. I have seen an ent that said it looks fine and must be mechanical. I have a gastrologist appointment and a neurolist appointment coming up. Hopefully someone will give me an answer how to fix this. In the meantime i can not eat solids(no applesause ) i just chug water and cough it back up if it goes the wrong way. And the same with liquid fruit shakes which are all that i can tolerate. Thank God i have not developed pneumonia or other issues but the constant coughing is putting a toll on me. For anyone who wants tips on dealing with this just keep looking for anything that can help relieve your swallow function.
- Bactrim-hypopigmentation, nausea, other side effects
Took bactrim for 7 days 2x a day, was told to take for 14 days. Had persistent and worsening nausea, vomiting, fatigue, hypopigmentation of my skin when I sat in the sun for over 5 minutes, inability to fall asleep, headache, and neck pain. Ended up with low iron and folic acid levels, which were treated with supplements and discontinuation of the Bactrim resolved symptoms.
- Severe leg/foot/ankle swelling from doxycycline
Was given five-day course of doxycycline for sinusitis and laryngitis. By end of third day had ankle edema (never had before), then MASSIVE leg/foot/ankle edema by fourth day Discontinued on fifth day after research revealed side effect of doxycycline. Took almost a week for swelling to go comletely away. Also felt completely exhausted and seemed to make the coughing and laryngitis much worse also.
- Psoriasis and flomax
I have been on Flomax for 4 years now and have been having a sore ulcerated mouth for about 3 years off and on. About six months ago I developed psoriasis on my scalp and have been using different medications described by my doctor.
Then three months ago I got a patch on my leg. I started looking at medicines side effect. I found out on the internet last week that Flomax might be the culpert.
It has been one week since I stopped taking it and today my leg psoriasis is starting to fade away. Has not itched all day today. TYJ!
The patch on my scalp is doing the same. The scalp thickness has improved tremendously. I just hope I don't start having trouble with my BPH again, so for so good.
