  • Can unexplained hypertension be cause by a partial thyroidectomy?
    Doc is trying to figure out why the BP suddenly spiked. I started an exercise regimen after a stress test. I had to be on Metoprolol just to pass the test. Results were no heart-related issues. Lost 6lbs. since starting exercise and don't know if this is Thyroidal or not. No discussion with the doc yet of whether this is related to the thyroidectomy of the past.

  • Omeprazole or pantoprazole?
    I take an oral contraceptive, Diane-35 ED, which is not in the list of drugs to choose from on this site.

    Recently, the medication I was taking for my stomach ulcer (Omeprazole) became unavailable in my country of residence and was replaced by Patoprazole. I started taking it yesterday morning and by midday today the side effects were unbearable. I am nauseous, have diarrhea, and a very severe headache. This didn't happen with Omeprazole. Do you think this is a drug interaction or is there some difference between the two that I am perhaps sensitive to?

  • Timing of taking wellbutrin xl 300 with diovan 80
    I take levoxyl when waking up. After eating breakfast usually I take wellbutrin, diovan, and vitamin d together. If taking adderall, I would take at this time. Sometimes red yeast rice in morning, sometimes later in the day. Estradiol is taken before bed. Is it OK to take wellbutrin and diovan together or should they be spaced separately in the day?

  • 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?

  • Bone infections involving my teeth crohns and prednisone over the past 12 years
    Dentist [2] tell me the abscesses are in the bones and I've had several root canals, bridges, bone surgeries that last 3 years, teeth became so mobile after the bone economy I had them pulled and now a partial one month ago. Bone loss etc. I don't have the ridges in my mouth that most Crohn patients have. Appears to affect the upper teeth.
    Crohns diagnosed at the age of 39. Moderate to severe.
    Dentists state the problem is the use of prednisone and having Crohn.

  • 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.

  • My stomach cramps when I haven't eaten in a while and it cramps when I eat. I've been very stressed lately and I know all of my "stress" is going to my stomach so there's probably a lot of acid in there. So I took the Wellbutrin to calm the stress but my stomach started cramping again.

  • Ulcers discovered 3 months ago; Carafate prescribed, but stopped after 4 weeks due to elevated blood glucose levels. Xanax dosages increased to help with sleep (did not sleep anyway). Ambien prescribed for sleep, and Xanax tapered down to leave drug.

  • 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.
