From this study (6 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):
I believe alot of my symptoms are related but after seeing 7 different specialists and them running many different tests I still don't have a diagnosis. Many of the tests are abnormal but nothing seems to fit completely together. My gastroenterologist is referring me to a surgeon for severe gastro reflux that can't be controlled with medication. I can't take the ferrous sulfate because of nausea.

I'm not sure what state you live in but I have researched this same issue and THC the active ingredient in Marijuana and a few other active chemicals will calm the stomach and increase appetite. I'm not a user but I am considering it under medical advice.
From this study (3 weeks ago):
UTI and treatment with Nitrofurantoin 5 days after completing Rx for Penicillin...after tooth extraction.
