Have had high bp most of my adult life and take lisinopril. Have taken some "form" of mesalamine for over 20 years, but last year started Pentasa and my bp has really dropped w/diastolic in the 50's and 60's. Anyone else experience this w/Pentasa???
Everytime I take benadryl.. I bleed! I have a birth control rod in my arm just replaced about 7mths ago so going on 4yrs on this type of b.c. guess I should not take benadryl. They have no warning about bleeding while on birth control on the package but should be making America aware by labels!!
Anybody know if benadryl is rough on the endocrine system? I have issues with an adrenal gland but I cannot find any information about this! It helps me get restful sleep but I'm a bit worried about trying to use this long term!
