I was put on coumadin after i broke my neck in April 2007 right before i turned 18 years old. I was on it for a year and i was also on lovenox shots for about 3-5 weeks a long with the coumadin at fist. now at the age of 23 i just had my first hernia repair and i am two weeks into recovery and just developed a second hernia that is that size of a small grape. for being in very good health and 23 years old. The blood thinners seems to the only logical reason why i would develop a hernia let alone two of them.

I have a client with restless leg syndrome as well as being a coumadin patient who has trouble sleeping at night. She would like to know if diphenhydramine HCl has any bad side affects in combination or is it safe? She is 87 years old. 10 years ago, had triple by-pass surgery.
RNMommy on Mar, 8, 2014:
In response to the quest. about whether or not it's safe to give diphenhydramine to 87 y.o woman w/RLS whom is also on Coumadin:studies have been done that show that elderly patients can be @increased risk for developing dementia when taking diphenhydramine for insomnia...w/out factoring in comorbidities or meds. So err on the side of caution.

Lisinopril 25mg provokes horrific depression, despair, inability to navigate back to upbeat, creative state and fear for survival. Dizziness, crippling vertigo, etc every time I move from rest. Reducing dose to 2.5mg makes side effects tolerable, with no noticeable change in therapeutic effect.
