Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (1 day ago):

  • I had severe swelling of my eyes on an irregular basis beginning September 2013. I saw my allergy doctor, and she diagnosed it as angioedema and prescribed 4 10mg of cetirizine hydrochloride per day. At that time I was taking amlodipine besylate for high blood pressure. I have seen the allergy doctor several times since September, but my blood pressure has continued to go up. I asked her if the cetirizine could be causing this and she said "no". I am concerned because I only have one kidney, have a history of Hep C and some diminished liver function due to the Hep C (it's been in remission for about six years).

  • From this study (6 days ago):

  • Sarcoidosis caused complete heart block. Pacemaker implanted in December 2009 but for the past two years I have had palpitations caused by around 3.7 million ectopic heartbeats per year.

    Sarcoidosis also in lungs and eyes. Extended use of Pred Forte caused development of cataracts, one of which has been removed and I am awaiting the second operation.

    Breathlessness is caused by lack of oxygen entering the bloodstream and my ongoing heart problems

    Rarely able to sleep properly due to pain, sleeping for about 20 minutes at a time when I become so exhausted that the pain can't keep me awake

    Muscle and joint pain have made me weak and clumsy.Pain is felt all over, from head to toes along with muscle cramps and intense burning sensation to skin on lower legs.

    ACE levels fluctuate but average 110 - 150.

    Blood pressure on average is 150 / 78 - no treatment given

    I also take Nefopam Hydrochloride (Acupan) for pain but this drug is not on the list.

    Immobility, fatigue and constant pain have left me very depressed ad harbouring thoughts of suicide. My 15 year old granddaughter has lived with me since the death of my daughter 11 years ago and it is my hope that I will live long enough to see her settled in college and independent after which the only thing I have to look forward to is to end my own suffering.
