- Can cilostazol cause hair loss?
I have been taking Cilostazol 100mg for 8 months for vascular disease and recently noticed I am losing ALOT of hair. I'm just wondering if anyone else is having this problem and if it is possible that it is the Cilostazol causing the hair loss. And when I say ALOT of hair, I mean it is coming out in big wads. I went to my doctor and she just says its stress but checked my thyroid and said it was fine and never mentioned If the Cilostazol could be causing it. I am 63 and have been stressed my whole life and never lost my hair before. I didn't think to mention the Cilostazol because I am on several other medications but I have been on them for several years and this medication is the most recent one added as of 8 months ago. I would appreciate any help I could get. Thank You

- Does smoking marijuana while being treated for periperal artery disease worsen the disease?
I've had two bi-femoral bypass grafts that have failed due to over-healing. I have a stent in my left leg and the right leg has had to find it's own blood flow as a stent couldn't be introduced. I have burning pain in my toes in the right leg. It is like the pain I had when my toes turned black 3 years ago and I discovered I had PAD. I quit smoking cigarettes immediately

- My ex-boyfriend's effexor effects (1 response)
In my fifth year of living with my ex-boyfriend, he began taking Effexor and soon developed urinary incontinence, kidney failure and nightmares or night terrors so severe that he frequently screamed for prolonged periods, flailed and threw punches in his sleep. Upon ceasing to take Effexor, his sleep returned to normal. His kidneys also recovered, and he regained the ability to control urination. About a year after that, he was arrested for downloading child pornography, and I haven't spoken to him since. I'm not suggesting that Effexor caused him to become a pedophile, but it has been noted to produce personality changes in some users. It would be hard to ascertain whether any or all of these side effects resulted from the drug, but I would NEVER take it or allow anyone I cared about to do so. He had never exhibited any such symptoms before taking it, and I feel it ruined his life on many levels.

Still fighting the disease. Also having muscle twitches and heart flutters.

From this study (10 months ago):
18 months ago I experienced pain in my stomach. I saw a physician who after scans suggested that the drugs might be in conflict. He prescribed prontoprazol and the pain disappeared. The pain returned last October but this time Prontoprazol has not solved the problem. I decided to stop taking all medicines except Omeprazol, Diltiazem, and the insulins and while the pain awas reduced it did not disappear. This is obviously not a wise step. There is only stomach discomfort and my appetite is still good and my bowels are working normally. Any suggestions? please
