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?

  • 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.
  • Had nms in 2005, will trileptal increase chance of recurrence?
    In 2005 I had NMS, which was not detected by my drs for 4 months. I'd been on Lexapro & Seroquel for 2 yrs, but was weaned from Lexapro & placed on Lamictal 3/05. Began getting low-grade fevers, which I was told were not caused by the Lamictal. I quit taking it anyway, fevers (along with uncontrollable shivering) continued & got higher. By 5/05 my temps were reaching 105 deg F. Husband said I became combative, refused to go to hospital. Early June/05 he came home to find me wrapped in blankets, with a temp over 105 F. He tried to place me in a tub of cold water, said I was rigid & screamed when he tried to move me. I was in the tub, speaking "in tongues" (his description, I have no memory of this). He called 911, took me to hospital. I woke, no idea where I was or why. After a lumbar puncture & 2 days in ICU I went home. The fevers continued...2 weeks later he came home to find me wrapped in sheets, towels, blankets, with the heat on full (it was in the 90's outside) he called ambulance again. I awoke to find myself under an ice blanket with nurses pushing large vials of dantrolene into both arms, several liters. Another LP, a stint in ICU...this time they told me it was NMS. The dr who dxd me said he was surprised I was alive, & not a vegetable, as my temp had peaked at 109 deg F. I suffered brain damage; short-term memory loss, brain can't control my body temp, my blood pressure went up. An arteriogram showed completely healthy heart & arteries, no plaque at all. I lost all body fat as well as some muscle mass. The fevers continued even after stopping the Seroquel. I visited my PCP for a checkup in 9/05, temp was normal. I started shuddering, my temp went up a full degree every 5 minutes. PCP admitted me to ER, my heart rate was over 272 B/M; they stopped my heart 3 times to "reset" it, which didn't work. I spent 3 days in hospital. Several months later my P doc tried me on Lamictal alone; I got Stevens-Johnson syndrome. I stopped the drug as soon as the signs appeared. I've been untreated, except for Neurontin & Primidone, until my manic episodes became unlivable. 3 weeks ago I went 8 days with no sleep, became psychotic. My P doc gave me Trileptal, which has evened my moods, but I've been getting low-grade fevers (highest was 103.6). Would having had NMS in the past make me more prone to falling to it again with the Trileptal? It's the only new med I've taken in over a year.
  • Not a great experience
    I was on norvasc for two months and had to go off because of severe swelling of feet and legs. Also rapid heart beat and very profuse sweating. it was horrible. It also raised my blood pressure. after going off BP dropped by @least 10 points both diastolic and systolic.

  • I have had surgery for scoliosis with harrington rods 47 years ago. Some stenosis at bottom of spine, but no pain except for some tingling in feet. However scoliosis curve has progressed from 20 degrees to 35 in the past 3 years. Shortness of breath started fairly quickly 4 months ago with constant tightness in chest. Heart tests are all negative.
