- Does high uric acid increases erectile dysfunction
I have been suffering from hypertension, diabetes. My doctor recently prescribed Olmesartan 20 mg after 2-3 months I checked and found my Uric Acid is more than 7.5 and had noticed that I have developed Erectile Dysfunction....Is this due to taking Olmesartan
- Full body joint pain
At a real loss for what's happening to my body. I'm white, female 46, and feel absolutely crippled. Cannot crouch and get up, my knees are in agony. The Dr. feels I have some type of viral infection. He has not tested me for any strain of Hepatitis due to no sign of jaundice in the eyes.
First sign of this was a month ago. Woke up could hardly move. Let up slightly for a few weeks, could tolerate the pain. Then is switched to terrible. The meds help somewhat, but some days it acts like nothing is working. My joints are starting to crack at times. Mornings my neck and wrists hurt bad, then the knees once moving around.
Three months before this I had gallbladder issues (bad pain after eating) Had CT scan and ultrasound. Showed small stones and small fibroid in gallbladder and slightly distended gallbladder. Cannot see specialist until July 2015. He doesn't feel this is in anyway related.
I'm having a second set of blood tests run, and should have more results soon I hope.

Have been on Lorsardon for several years. Work out every other day, weights and cardio. Pressure was elevated recently and my physician put me on Tribenzor.

- Terrible excessive sweating from hydrochlorothiazide
I guess I fit the profile of who gets excessive sweating from HCTZ. I am a 65 year old female and suffered from excessive sweating for two years. With just very little exertion, I would pour sweat from the top of my head. It would run into my face and all over my hair. My hair would be ringing wet. I had heavy perspiration in the groin area and down my back also. I had to change clothing 2-3 times a day and wash up or shower that many times also. The doctor tried changing my Cymbalta and put me on Wellbutrin instead. It did absolutely no good. I went off the wellbutrin and back onto the Cymbalta. I did some research and saw that HCTZ could cause excessive sweating. Both my doctor and my pharmacist said that they had never heard of that. I went off the HCTZ, and my sweating stopped almost immediately. My doctor and my pharmacist were very surprised. I'm one of those people who frequently have different reactions to drugs than are typical. If you're having excessive perspiration and are on HCTZ, try going off of it. It just may be the culprit!
- Avapro back pain and other symptoms along the way.
Been taking avapro for last 6 years and every now and then a weird symptom surfaces.
In the begining it was tiredness no energy, then it was several near misses on the hiway because the drug interfered wih my brain/ vision, then unexplained bruising, mental fog,severe thirst,dry cough,not very good bp control, slows urination, and when my dosage was upped I now have middle back pain and front rightside pain ...not diagnosed yet but i feel my gallbladder is acting up.
- Avoid lisinopril or any ace inhibitor
This was the only drug I was taking other than low-dose aspirin 3x/week.
Within 2 days I began coughing, as though something was deep in my lungs; became long severe coughing fits than threw out my back, sore all over. Then began runny nose, exhaustion, occasional mild chest pain. Not connecting the dots, after a month of this I returned to my dr., who prescribed an antibiotic and inhaler, saying I had asthma! After a week starting feeling worse, sore throat and sore lungs from coughing, in bed from exhaustion.
After reading on-line about identical symptoms from LISINOPRIL, I immediately stopped it; now, 2 weeks later I am beginning to feel better -- cough much better. I am hoping I will be one of the lucky ones who does not have the cough continue. By the way, this drug reduced my bp from 140/100 to 110/80 BUT I'd rather have high bp than take this poison.
Now I learn than many deaths have resulted from use of Lisinopril. Had this drug caused my death, no one would know my story as I have no relatives to tell it; am assuming many unreported have died and of course are not able to go on-line and tell their story post-death!
All I can do is ask WHY is this drug allowed to be sold -- even stranger, in my case the drugstore is giving this poison away at no charge -- a first; but WHY?
