Had moderate dry mouth prior to starting Metformin, but much worse and disabling (especially sleep-I'm exhausted) during the time that I have been taking 500 mg daily Metformin. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks. Steve
I am a 70+ male with nasal polyps. Years ago I experienced a stuffy nose with Flomax and now, after recently taking Finasteride for little over a month, I experiencd the same problem. Accordingly, I am unable to tolerate either drug.
I'm experiencing nasal congestion on Benzstropine which is exacerbating my disorder. Makes me want to have a panic attack. I take Ability with it. I take 1mg of Benzstropine in the morning and 1mg at night. If I cry it makes it worse...feels like I'm going to die.
