Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 weeks ago):
My mom was admitted to a nursing home 2-weeks ago before that she was held over at the hospital 13 days, meds was changed, Aricept removed and Detrol she had a staff MD. her primary care md passed away 3 years ago. He put her on her meds and tooked good care of her. She has not been without a primary md but he does not practice outside his offices. Mom had a good mental status did removing Aricept/Detrol trigger bad symptoms?
From this study (1 month ago):
I took the drug on three occasion and was diagnosed 2 years after ceasing with MG. Had been ill but undisguised for the same period. I think chantix targets the same neurotransmitter that becomes defected with MG
From this study (2 months ago):
Within 1 month of taking bladder control medication diagnosed with high blood pressure.Switched to Detrol LA but blood pressure was still high. Have been taking blood pressure medicene 4 months. Labwork came back last week showing slightly low level of potassium. Labs are to be rechecked for potassium and magnessium.Could bladder control medications cause the low potassium,then the low potassium cause the high blood pressure? Can I use the over the counter oxytrol with the low potassium, high blood, pressure, and evista?
