- Coughing up blood after using symbicort inhaler
First time I used Symbicort Inhaler, I immediately coughed freely, but noticed it was bright red, blood. Second time I used it- same thing. Third time I used it, I coughed about an hour later a larger amount of blood in phlegm. I'm reluctant to use the medication any further-I will consult my doctor after the weekend.
- Hydrochlorothiazide made me pour sweat
Hydroclorothiazide made me absolutely pour sweat for two years. My doctors could not find out what was causing the problem. It took little exertion for me to start dripping sweat. My hair would be absolutely soaked...especially in the summer, but if I was cleaning house in the winter also. I finally did my own research and proposed to my doctor that HCTZ was the problem. He did not agree with me, but agreed to let me go off of it for a short time. The profuse sweating stopped almost immediately.

- Lipitor caused gout attack.
My doctor gave me Lipitor to lower my Collestoral (240). Three days later I had lower stomach pains and the beginning of a Gout attack on my foot. I stopped taking the drug after 4 days when the full blown Gout attack came. I had been watching my diet and had not had a Gout attack for two years (my first one). Nothing changed except the Lipitor. I have no doubt the attack was brought on by the Lipitor. If you have Gout DO NOT TAKE LIPITOR (or its generic). Im now in my second week of pain and it's terrible.
- Nexium improves my constipation

I also have been getting hot flashes in the mornindgand have had some large bruising from what would seem like a minor impact.
