Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Is any drug known to cause, prevent, or treat scintillating scotomata?
Adult lifelong occasional scintillating scotomata without nausea or headache.
Each episode lasts about 20 minutes. Brought on by focussed stress.
Now much more frequent.
- Can i use a lidocaine patch for back pain if i am taking prograf for anti-rejection post lung transplant?
Transplant was 6 years ago.
Has suffered from PTLD on several occasions before.
Recently hospitalized for Periodic Fever Syndrome.
Received Interleukin 6 blocker last week and fevers have resolved, but back pain is still present
- Can i take phentermine with amlodipine besylate?
I informed the doctor that I was taking the blood pressure med and really wanted to lose weight but need a little help. Put me on B12 shots 1x per week and phentermine 1x per day along w/ multi-vit.
- I have been on amlodipine for approximately 3 months and have had terrible swelling in my legs and ankles along with pain and itching. should i be taken off this medication?
I was previously taking Propranolol for blood pressure which didn't bother me at all, but last year I developed a breathing problem and was given Symbicort to help get rid of wheezing. The Symbicort and Propranolol don't mesh well so I was then put on Amlodipine. The swelling, pain and itching occurred right away. I asked the pharmacist about it and also my doctor and they both said a small percentage of people have this problem on this medication. I have tried many times to get my doctor to take me off of this medication but he insists it is best for me, but I disagree. I really don't want to have this problem for the rest of my life and I also won't have any skin left on my legs from the scratching, not to mention the pain that accompanies the swelling which seem to creep up to my knees and thighs and sometimes is so painful I just go to bed to lay down and hopefully the hydroclorithiazide will remove some of this water so that pain will go away. The doctor also doubled my dose of Losartin and Hydroclorithiazide. I'm up about 4-6 times a night going to the bathroom so it also interrupts my sleep. Is anyone else having this problem. I would prefer to go back on the Propranolol and get something other than Symbicort that won't interact with each other. Then I won't have pain and itching all the time. Does anyone have any input on this. I would really appreciate it.
Thanks. Debbie CB
- Unexplained hair loss
Started Amlodipine 5mg about 5 years ago with no side effects and BP controlled until last year when increase noted. Dosage increased to 10mg Aug 2014. Unexpected surgery for bowel obstruction in Sept 2014 took toll on health for 4-6 weeks and also led to very swollen legs and ankles. GP reduced Amlodipine to 5mg again but BP stayed high, although swelling reduced! so prescribed Ramipril 2.5mg along with Amlodipine 5mg a month ago. Almost immediately started to notice hair loss which has steadily got worse in last few weeks and some ankle swelling again. Is medication mix causing hair loss or is it delayed reaction to surgery/anaesthesia?

- Ulcerative colitis from avastin
Developed ulcerative colitis four days after Avastin injection in eye for myopic degeneration.
- Stelara worsened existing mild endometriosis to severe endometriosis
My rheumatologist switched my biologic psoriatic arthritis medicine from Humira to Stelara 9 months ago. My other choice was to add methotrexate to Humira, which I have taken before and didn't want to do because of the fatigue and possible recurrence of elevated liver enzymes. Within a month I had heavy uterine bleeding 3 times within one month. As a pharmacist I was concerned about this strange side effect and my gynecologist agreed with my concerns that I may have migrated endometriosis as well as worsening symptoms of uterine endometriosis originally diagnosed in 2000. I've had psoriasis since childhood beginning in the mid 1970s. Arthritis was diagnosed shortly after I completed endometriosis treatment in in 2001. I have reported the adverse event to Abbvie and encourage anyone else to do so. For those of us in this unfortunate group, the company needs to study WHY Stelara feeds endometriosis (does it elevate estrogen levels?) and why it causes a premenopausal woman to have vaginal bleeding/period and/or bleeding at migration sites within 3 days of an injection. I can only imagine the disastrous consequences for any woman on Stelara who has estrogen receptor positive breast cancer history in her family. This side effect is on par as being as serious as those seen with Thalidomide.
- Ulcerative colitis from suboxone?
Anyone else out there experiencing ulcerative colitis after multiple yearprescribed Suboxone? Suboxone stole a large portion of my life, and now I am considering going on a full-agonist analgesic until the buprenorphine bond has broken, and no more presence of it in my plasma. Insane!
- Bloody semen after taking amlodipine besylate
Was started on Amlodipine Besylate 11-13-14. Now -not quite three weeks later- I have bloody semen (Hematospermia)ranging from light pink to dark red. It was fine, and normal before. I feel it is the medication causing this.
- Amlo dipine and terazosin
I have taken combination since 04/13 I have experienced ED lower testosterone and elevated PSA. Prior to that I was taking terazosin and hydrochorizide without any side effects. I stop taking the amlodipine during a juice fast and my PSA levels decreased when I stopped fasting and returned to taking the amlodipine my PSA levels rose.
