Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 day ago):
Does it cause drug induced lupus
From this study (5 days ago):
diagnosed with low testosterone and taking no medication for that.
condition noticed only after adding losartan potassium to already taking metoprolol succinate and digoxin.
From this study (6 days ago):
this sensation started as if someone was running a feather across my ear lobe, spread to back of skull and across jaw to exact center. It now itches intensely after a tingling episode. NO pain. Can be exacerbated by position of head as in lowered to read or sew, or when lying down. Thought I could live with it, probably can but the itching after affect is getting to me. Some times, rarely, the tingling get a little more intense as if a tiny electric jolt...very tiny.
