From this study (11 months ago):
I am experiencing periodic chest pain, and am wondering if it is being caused by Alphagan. I have been using Alphagan for about a year in one eye, but soon after I started using it in both eye, I started to feel the chest pain. I am a healthy person who works out regularly. The chest pain only happens when I am at rest, not during exercise.

I am a 29yr old female n my gyno told me about Provella probiotic, so I took it for 28 days n developed a massive infection. The ER doc said it was because it changed my Flora too fast or I could have immune health probs (autoimmune). I wish gyno would have warned me n have had problems since. Make sure u check side effects n interactions. Wish I did, had to have surgery, laproscopy n cystscopy bc I was still having severe pains n female organ region. Docs r suppose to make u better not worse, Becareful b 4 taking any new drug!

I am taking Metoprolol ER 25mg daily and want to travel to malaria countries such as Burma, Vietnam and East Africa (mission work and adventure travel). Can I take any anti-malarial with the Metoprolol? One doctor told me I could take doxycycline 500mg but it would make me sun-sensitive. Could I safely take malarone?
kilian on Jul, 16, 2012:
Malorone is expensive, but safe. - even in Sunlight, with the least amount of side effects of any other anti Malaria - CDC has complete info and flow chart to help you chose - I have never had a problem with Malorone and travel to east Africa often.
