User reviews to the study
I have been on Candasartan since a heart attack 12 years ago. My voice has been affected for some time now and endoscope has ruled out other problems. Just wondering if this drug might be causing this hoarseness and clearing of throat.
I had Botox for the first time 4 weeks ago. I've had a range of symptoms since but am now experiencing rapid heart rate ( 105bmm at rest) and feel breathless climbing a flight of stairs. I'm in the early stages of diagnosis with the Drs but I suspect they'll find nothing.
I have been taking Esbriet for less than 2 weeks and I seem to have lost my voice. It is like I have a bad case of seasonal allergies, but I don't have the normal drainage the would come with allergies. Anyone else experiencing this? Thanks
Took tramadol a few month ago for severe endometriosis pain. Now I've got hardly any voice and struggle to talk, which is affecting me every day...work/family/social. Drs are baffled as to what has caused it and how to treat it.
