  • Victoza and liver cancer (cholangiocarcinoma)
    My husband was recently diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer after taking Victoza for several years. The doctor discontinued the Victoza when the cancer was diagnosed but he actually started feeling better after he stopped it until the cancer started progressing. Since cholangiocarcinoma nd pancreatic cancer are similar, is there a link between Victoza and cholangiocarcinoma?

  • Diovan nasal constriction
    46 year old male. Took Diovan HCT 160/12.5 once per day for 12 years for high blood pressure with very few issues. In 2012 dosage increased to 320/25. Immediately had stomach-related issues and severe nasal constriction right after taking the pill. Doctor changed prescription to take 160/12.5 twice a day. Stomach issues mostly resolved but severe nasal constriction occurs every time I take the pill, so now twice a day.



    Told the doctor and he changed me to regular diovan 160 2x a day. Still getting the nasal constriction but not as severe as before. The constriction generally happens within 10-15 minutes of taking the pill and lasts for hours.



    I would hate to change the medication as my blood pressure is controlled but the constriction is taking a toll on me. On good days I end up with a sinus-type congestion pressure for a few hours and on bad days I feel like I cannot breath. This happens twice a day, which makes it even more brutal.

  • Took Cozaar for several years, until it didn't work well. Began Diovan, which works reasonably well, except for the hair loss. Because Diovan has no generic, it's expensive. After compalining about it, my dr moved me back to Losartan.

  • While I had the flu I began using guaifenesin and Sudafed to try to relieve the symptoms of sinus discharge, post-nasal drip and phlegm, and cough. I have mostly recovered but still cough a lot due to excessive sinus drainage and phlegm in my lungs.

  • In the evening after 10 PM, when laying down, regular burping/belching occurs. When pressure is put on the abdominal area, forceful gas is expelled in the form of burping.
