In 2012 I had two PE's and four DVT's; I was diagnosed with a clotting disorder; after several hospitalizations they put an IVC filter in. Within a few months I was diagnosed with RA, Rheumatoid Arthritis. I am chronically exhausted, I have muscle pain - sometimes the pain in my upper legs/thighs is so severe I have lift my leg with my hands to get it into the car. Overtime I lost my livelihood and have become very depressed. Doctors say these symtoms are not related to any of the drugs I am taking.

- Ranexa and erectile dysfunction
I have experienced moderate ED with taking multiple heart and NO meds. This has been manageable and acceptable. Cardiologist added Ranexa (Ranalozine) 3 weeks ago and I am now experiencing complete erectile and ejaculatory failure.
- Blood in urine after taking lovasartan potassium for a year.
Took 25mg per day for more than a year and started to have blood and clots in my urine. I had a TURP about 5 years ago.
- Diagnosed with postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome after mirena
After getting the Mirena put in, I got really sick. I went home and got super dizzy, nauseous, and tired. I felt so sick and could barely function. I called the doctors office and they said it couldn't be from the Mirena. She said that I must have the flu. Well, I kept it in for a little while longer. I then started losing my hair. I went back into my doctors office because they thought I was experiencing the symptoms for the Mirena going through my uterine wall. The ultra sound was fine. She reassured me that the Mirena could not be the cause of my complications. So, a week a later I went to another doctor to have the Mirena taken out.
Never quite felt like myself and a year later I got diagnosedI with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, after a tilt table test was performed. It's weird to me that my symptoms started almost immediately after the Mirena was put in.

- Losartan potassium headaches (1 response)
I avoided going to the doctor for years and decided it was time to bite the bullet. The bullet bit back. High Blood pressure and cholesterol. Doc prescribed me 100mg Losartan Potassium right out of the gate. At 33 years old, this concerns me. I've been on it for about a week and have had a constant moderate headache along with some slight dizziness/foggy feeling. I also noticed some ringing in my ears a few times as well. Going back to the doc today. My pharmacist says they usually start people on lower doses than 100 mg. Anyone else dealing with something similar?

I am a 62 year old female and taking Losartan (100 mg) and Amlodipine Besylate (10 Mg) and have noticed blurred vision especially in the morning when first awaking. I am also experiencing much urgent urination at night disturbing my sleep. Just curious if anyone is experiencing this. The doctor can't even figure out the urination problem can we tried some medication that hasn't worked.
