Comments from related studies:
From this study (4 days ago):
Bystolic was effective in lowering my blood pressure. However, this drug has caused HORRIFIC problems for me. I have never had anything affect me so adversely. I believe that at first I was metabolizing it well, but after a couple of weeks I felt poisoned. It has been 5 months since I stopped taking it, and I believe I am finally coming out of it. I curse the day that I was foolish enough to ingest this substance.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
Since taking Flomax, exercising has become difficult. I want to see if this will go away.
From this study (3 weeks ago):
I have been taking large amounts of benadryl almost daily for the last two years. These last 6 months I have noticed weird and painful/scary symptoms after taking my dose (yellow skin,reversed vision; i am normally nearsighted but after taking a dose I become farsighted or completely blurred.lower back pain, stomach burning, even seizures) these symptoms fade after the benadryl works its way out of my system. I just dont know if i should be concerned or not
