Comments from related studies:
From this study (4 days ago):
5/325 every 4 hours as needed. 0-4 per day. Would like to stop taking this drug as my eye pressure has increased. Only take it if the pain is 10+++. Looking for Orthopedic Surgeon to fix the bulging disks.
From this study (6 days ago):
When trying all the various drug treatments and poisons for high blood pressure I experienced cold feet. However after stopping each medication the cold feet went away except for after I took beta blockers for a short period. A year later with my blood pressure moderated by a daily drink of pomegranate juice I still have cold feet. No one seems particularly bothered by the presentation. A lady at my local chemist has freezing cold hands from taking beta blockers.
From this study (7 days ago):
Is there any interaction or problems taking these three medication at the same time?
