  • Does lostartan potassium affect a hiatus hernia
    Does this medication affect my hiatus hernia.i am having swelling in my tummy and very uncomfortable indeed under the ribs.
  • I'm on 1 1/12 mg of suboxone. would i have to go off of it if i need major surgery?
    I was taking about 5 to 15 mg of Percocet a day and wanted to get off them. If I don't take suboxone at night I get EXTREME discomfort down my left leg & can not sleep due to pressure on my lower back (that's why I had to take Percocet). I have tried NUMEROUS meds over the past 20 yrs & nothing worked. the actual problem in my lumber spine is not serious enough to have surgery at this time.
    My question is if I need major surgery and need to take an opiate pain med would I have to get off the 1 1/2 mg of suboxone so I don't to go into withdrawal (as a doc once told me)? I'm 72 & the possibility of needing surgery is high, especially since I've had breast, colon & skin cancer. thank you
  • Losartan 75mg med not working for anyone else?
    BP 149/103, 151/94, 151/94, 153/100, 150/103 after taking up to 75mg of Losartan for BP.

You may be interested at these reviews (Write a review):

  • Avastin and low potassium
    I was put on Lasix twice to try to get rid of the swelling in the calf and foot of my left leg--then another water pill. Neither was successful. Recently I saw my geriatric doctor who examined the results of recent blood work. He asked me if anyone told me my potassium was low. Then said Lasix could cause that. ? Now I read that Avastin can cause that as well.

    This is the second side effect that could be from Avastin.

    I'm a type 2 diabetic who has had one blood clot in that leg. What, exactly is happening to that leg? Am in danger of having it amputated?

    No doctor has provided me with enough information. I don't think my geriatric doctor knows. My podiatrist said I had a weak pulse in that leg when I told him it had not been checked in two years!
  • 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.
  • Blood in urine after taking lovasartan potassium for a year.
    Took 25mg per day for more than a year and started to have blood and clots in my urine. I had a TURP about 5 years ago.
  • Ceftriaxone reynolds syndrome & tenditis
    Ceftriaxone intravenous, after a week hypokalemia hospital visit waited a week went back to the CDC physician he said that drug had nothing to do with it. I am allergic to 99% of antibiotics I can only take a z-pack for two weeks and then run into allergic reactions. We started back on the Cefriaxone as soon as it entered my system heart pain burning sensation every nerve had to be iced. Also the Reynolds was so bad my hands turned white the blue numb. Now pain in wrist and upper arm. The cdc physician knew I was allergic why!
  • Losartan potassium headaches (1 response)
    I avoided going to the doctor for years and decided it was time to bite the bullet. The bullet bit back. High Blood pressure and cholesterol. Doc prescribed me 100mg Losartan Potassium right out of the gate. At 33 years old, this concerns me. I've been on it for about a week and have had a constant moderate headache along with some slight dizziness/foggy feeling. I also noticed some ringing in my ears a few times as well. Going back to the doc today. My pharmacist says they usually start people on lower doses than 100 mg. Anyone else dealing with something similar?
