- Does high uric acid increases erectile dysfunction

- Lisinopril's interaction with aspirin and hawthorn
I'm about to change from captopril to lisinopril mainly for cost reasons, no other reasons really. I've been taking 650 mg. aspirin (enderic) and 200mg. extracted hawthorn (1.8% vitexin-2'-rhamnocide) along with 450 mg. of hawthorn berries. Now I read that I'm not to take either the aspirin nor the hawthorn along with the lisinopril. What's up with that? Have I been taking the wrong combo for the last 14 yrs? My dr. seems to question the aspirin taking in a vague sort of way. Knows nothing about hawthorn. Can someone set me straight on this? I did have a minor heart attack, losing some muscle, and need nitro in order to hike or walk the dog. Otherwise fine. This initial script was given to me by the cardiologist who did the angioplast on me in the hospital. Two enderic aspirins, two captoprils, and two metoprolol tartrates per day. I added the hawthorn myself. So when I start taking lisinopril next month do I have to quit the aspirin and hawthorn? And how can hawthorn hurt? They both reduse blood pressure, right? I do have hypertension problems.

- Was taking aspirin and bisoprolol fumerate for 8 months,after all tests ok was told to stop aspirin now having indigestion and heartburn. is connected and would it help if halved bisoprolol
Dr increased dosage from 1.25 then 2.5 and now 3.75 because still having some chest discomfort. However doctor said the bisoprolol did not stop any pain so why increase. I think all due to stress at work and when working notice felt great but after left anything that I let worry me seems to cause discomfort. After CT OK felt getting better then after told to stop aspirin started to get burning feeling in throat and sonetimes indigestion as well.Husband suggests stopping or halving bisoprolol as was not too bad on lower dose but Dr says leave as seems to be working.Seem to have swopped one worry and discomfort for another.

- Dysphagia with flomax to move kidney stones
I was experiencing extreme pain in right upper abdomen and was checked at the hospital and kidney stones were diagnosed. Flomax was prescribed in september 2014. I only took about 2 days worth after pain stopped. But then pain returned in December so i decided to continue taking flomax but i suddenly got stroke like complications so i went back to the hospital where they removed the kidney stones. But my dysphagia is still holding on today February 2 2015. I have seen an ent that said it looks fine and must be mechanical. I have a gastrologist appointment and a neurolist appointment coming up. Hopefully someone will give me an answer how to fix this. In the meantime i can not eat solids(no applesause ) i just chug water and cough it back up if it goes the wrong way. And the same with liquid fruit shakes which are all that i can tolerate. Thank God i have not developed pneumonia or other issues but the constant coughing is putting a toll on me. For anyone who wants tips on dealing with this just keep looking for anything that can help relieve your swallow function.
- Sublingual b12 & insomnia
Approx 8 months ago I began taking 500 mg sublingual B12 in the am. I actually feel more energized (real or imagined?) but, I have also begun experiencing severe insomnia. I go to sleep easily but get up around 3 times a night. This interrupted sleep is a killer. Any suggestions will be appreciated

- Coughing up blood after using symbicort inhaler
First time I used Symbicort Inhaler, I immediately coughed freely, but noticed it was bright red, blood. Second time I used it- same thing. Third time I used it, I coughed about an hour later a larger amount of blood in phlegm. I'm reluctant to use the medication any further-I will consult my doctor after the weekend.
- 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!
