- Hydroxyurea and pomegranate juice
sorry for my bad english.
i am a retired physician, specialist in i.medicine & gastroenterology.
have essencial thrombocythemia since year 2000.
mild hypercholesterolemia once treated wiht symvastatin 20 mg/day.
during a certain time i began to take 100 cc of pomegranate juice/3 times per week. before that my platelets were +/- stable at 400-450.000 y also my cholesterol at normal.
after a few weeks of drinking pomegranate juice suddenly found: platelets fell to 300.000 and there was a leucopenia with absolute leucocytes count 1.7.
also the cholesterol ldl and total fell to levels that never had before. at this stage stoped pomegranate juice and stoped hydrea and after more or les normalization began again hydrea when al the blood values return to a normal or higher level.
I think that there is, probably, an interaction between hyderea and also smvastatin with pomegranate juice.
for an unrelated cause i stoped symvastatin a few months ago. no i have a problem again with platelets that are high (480.000) and leucopenia (perhaps myelofibrosis ?). since a week we lowered de hydrea and i again began taking 100 cc of pomegranate juice twice a week. i have an appointment to my hematologist in 4 weeks and will do blood tests.

- Miconazole 3 - nose bleed
It was a three day dosage by life brand. Every morning after taking it I would wake up with a bloody nose. Nothing severe but there was blood. When I didn't take it again, there was no bloody nose when I woke up.
