  • From this study (7 months ago):

  • Urine/bladder control is a result of prostate cancer. I had radioactive implants 10 years ago and PSA has stayed less than .1 ever since.

    I have been taking Atacand 5 to 7 years and started felodipine 5 months ago. B.P is running about 140 over 85. Lung-breathing problems began 3-4 years ago. I've been taking Symbicort 3+ years and Started Spiriva 6 months ago. Breathing problems have become more severe with each passing year.

Withdrawal effects for 2-3 days with heart rate going up to 100 plus and blood pressure slowly recovered.
