- Does anyone get numbness in lower legs after sleeping for 4-5 hours? wakes me up and now advil no longer helping with discomfort
Not sure if any of my COPD medications are causing my lower leg numbness or if I have an undiagnosed medical condition. I have been taking Spiriva and Advair for at least a year. The numbness seems to wake me up after 4-5 hours of sleep. Recently started using the Proventil HFA inhaler but not every day so not sure if this rescue inhaler is causing lower leg numbness. No tingling or cramping occurring in lower legs. Also stomach seems to be slightly throbbing at the same time but only if lying on either side..do not feel this sensation if lying on my back. Advil used to help me get back to sleep but now it does not seem to be helping this numbness subside. Anyone else ever have anything like this? No numbness during daytime
- I too have hashimoto's and hydrocephalus
I have been HYPOTHYROID since at least 18 years old, now 43, and last 2 years found out that I did test positive for Hashimotos and was told I have no thyroid left. When I was 26, I had visual disturbance and went to the ER. Was told by the neurologist that I had mild hydroencephaly, and may require a shunt. Due to lack of insurance, went years with no treatment or follow up. Now have numerous problems with Hashimotos/Hypothyroid and investigating the correlation between the Hydroencephaly and Hashimotos. Is this the only study of the two relations?

- How do people taking risperidone lower their cholestrol side effect from this drug? what has your experience been while on this drug?
I have been on Risperidone for 1 year now. I started at 2 mg and I am now taking 1 mg. While on 1 mg my Triglycerides were at 218, very high and a side effect to this drug. I eat healthy and I am at a healthy weight. I know the high triglycerides are strictly from this drug. What is everyone's experience in this situation?

- High cholesterol since on losartan and clonidine
I found studies done ( via online reputable journals of medicine) that cholesterol was found to increase with the use of Losartan. Imagine that! The Dr was amazed since my healthy diet has not been changed for years. No statins for me!
- 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!
- Abnormal orgasm after likely caused by taking spironolactone
I was taking Spironolactone to assist with hairloss for approx 7 years. Although the drug did help to stop hair falling out it also caused abnormal orgasm and after 12 months of not taking the drug I am still unable to climax normally. My doctor cannot give me a full explanation for this.
- Lump in throat, swallowing problems, reflux (1 response)
After 3 months, my total cholesterol went way down, but developed terrible throat problems. Like an ever-present lump that made it difficult to swallow. At night, discomfort with acid going up and down my throat all night, making it hard to sleep and breathe. Stopped taking Simvastatin on my own (doctor said it was not the cause) and within 3-4 days, the throat problems totally resolved and have not come back. Also had many leg-cramps when using it.
