  • Can omeprazeloe cause muscle loss?
    Previously to taking Omeprazeloe I had normal bowel movements after getting control of the diarrhea caused by the irritable bowel syndrome. The day after I took the first capsule I experienced extreme constipation. It was hard to have a BM and had to go several times. It has caused bad abdominal pain. I started to have hair loss. It has thinned to half as much as I had. My migraines came on like crazy. I lost eight pounds over about a month after I stopped taking it. I lost fat I had gained in my abdomin but also my muscles have deteriated some. I would recommend that no one takes this medication and it should be taken off the market. People who have suffered from taking this medication should be compensated.
  • What is the relation between cerebral infarction and somonelence
    34 years old female suffered perioral numbness and mild weakness of the left hand(left thumb) and slurred speech.
  • Can xanax use cause female hair loss?
    I am losing a lot of hair. It started about two months ago, and I went to dermatologist who ordered some medication for two weeks. It stopped. I have been using Victoza for almost a year and take Xanax daily long term. Can either of these drugs cause my hair loss?? It's back now, and full speed. At this rate, I'll be bold in two weeks more. I'm desperate, but my doctors think if the Victoza is causing it, it will regenerate once I stop, which I'm in the process of doing. However, if there is a chance Xanax is causing it, I need to know to find an alternative drug for my nerves. Any help??

  • Hair loss with enbrel
    I have been on Enbrel for 4 months and started seeing significant hair thinning at the second month of treatments (50 mg once per week). My Rhuematologist suggested 800 mcg of folic acid. I am still losing hair although I am feeling so much better.
  • Hair loss with metformin hydrochloride usage
    I have been taking the drug Metformin Hydrochloride for about 5 months and definitely find that I am losing hair which is a problem I have never experienced. Always had the healthiest hair, no problems. Well, I am finding that I am losing lair significantly and feel that the manufacturer of this drug should post that this is a side effect as so many have been complaining of the same side effect. I also began having problems with my teeth and always prided myself of having great teeth with no problems. I also understand that if there is a deficiency of Vitamin B12 that this together with taking this drug can cause these issues of hair loss and mouth/teeth problems. Again; I feel this should be totally and more readily informed to anyone taking this drug. I don't feel that anyone should have to give up things important to them to maintain a healthy way of living...I am going to see my physician and discuss what other options that may exist as I am not feeling very comfortable with this drug and the side effects I am experiencing.

  • Depo provera overdose
    Dr acidentially gave me something like 9 times the normal dose of depo provera. My life has been miserable! I have fought excessive weight gain, infertility, severe cellulite, and acne for 20 years.
  • Hair loss on this drug
    i began this drug a week and two days now. after the fourth day i saw hair loss, my sister said you have a dry patch in your hair and i went home and brushed my hair there was no much hair loss and a few bald patches about the size of fists at the back of my head. There was no way to hide them, earlier I had cut down the back of my hair to a low fade but with some new growth, i looked like i had some skin problem. What do you do when you have to take the medications to survive? I also have the feeling of depression, I kept crying and I am normally a strong person, who it takes alot to make me break down, when I think of my hair loss i just burst in to a ball of tears, just to tell someone about my hair loss, tears.....I've always have been known for keeping my hair done I went out and got a wig and I know this won't make me feel any better.........i will always be saying don't let me get caught by the wind, rain or any of the elements......

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (4 weeks ago):

  • Had been taking all three for years. My depression has been worse. My dr suggested I go off decongestant medicine because long term use causes swelling in the sinuses. After a few days of not taking it, my depression has improved significantly.
