From this study (3 weeks ago):
My blood pressure is still up. I started taking 2 losartan a day a little over a week ago. Was not having symptoms as bad when taking only 1. Blood pressure seems to come down some with the clonidine. I think the extra losartan has triggered a reaction.
From this study (3 months ago):
I took propylthiouracil for 30 months as treatment for Graves Disease. I developed a severe skin rash and neuropathy. My physician told me to take Claritin, use calamine lotion, and to "put up with the minor problems or be ready for surgery." Graves disease was cured (normal thyroid level for 5 years) but the symptoms have persisted. Tested by neurologist for neuropathy, and could not find a cause --- told to live with it. Still have vertigo and neuropathy. HELP
