Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- I am taking losartan so can i also take methimazole for my thyroid
I found out I was allergic to Lisinipril so they put me on Losartan now that I found out that my Thyroid is over active they have put me on Methimazole will these two together cause an allergic reaction?
- Low dose of hydroxyzine 20mg daily

- How long before atenolol caused angioedema (1 answer)
I was taking lisonpril when I had an episode of angioedema that required transport to emergency room. Doctor switch me to altenolol September 17th.
Started atenolol on September 18th. developed Hives, prescribed presnisone and benadral. stopped after 10 days, the hives came back and last night a slight case of angioedema. still have the hives.
- Why is my left ankle swelling? my doctor says it is from the graves disease
HELP! my doctor took me off of my beta blockers and now my left ankle is swelling again? She says it is just my thyroid receptors. I don't think its that clear cut
- I was treated for overactive thyroid with methimazole, thyroid levels now lowered was directed to stop methimazole, have been off methimazole now for 3 weeks, but my blood pressure is still 224/117 (1 answer)
I was recently diagnosed with overactive thyroid, no nodules or cancer, I had all the symptoms that you could have. Heart palpitations, high blood pressure,hand tremors, anxiety, wgt loss, muscle aches, weak legs and diarrhea. I was treated with methimazole for the overactive thyroid and inderal for the heart palpitations, ativan for the anxiety, and clonidine 2-3 times a day if systolic blood pressure is over 180. After 3 weeks my thyroid levels have returned to almost normal and was directed to stop taking methimazole now and to follow up with endocrinologist in 6 wks. My concern is that my blood pressure is still very high 224/117, I had lisinopril 5mg added to my medicine list, but doesn't seem to be helping, I am also taking the as needed clonidine 3-4x a day which doesn't seem to be helping much either. I am wondering if anyone that has had hyperthyroidism with secondary hypertension and was treated with methimazole..if after stopping methimazole continued to have high blood pressure?

- Gnc hair skin and nails gave me a severe rash and hives
I've been using GNC Hair Skin and Nails tablets for about a month and I burst out in a severe rash and hives on my hands, arms and neck. My hair didn't grow much of a difference and my nails, though they were stronger,kept breaking after a few weeks.I discontinued taking the tablets about a week now but the rash has not improved much. I will advise others to go natural and forget these tablets that offers you miracle results because there is always a catch to it.
- Allergic to ivp dye bad reaction to pyridium
I am allergic to IVP dye (Iodine) I had discovered this over 20 years ago when I had kidney stones and was injected with the IVP. I was asked beforehand if I was allergic to shellfish and told them I didn't know since at the time I had never eaten seafood. After the injected me and walked out of the room my throat swelled and I couldn't breathe, hives formed I had to grab whatever I could to throw around the room to get someones attention. They rushed in and gave me a shot of adrenaline. WHEW!! I had taken Pyridium on many occasions in the following years with no problems.Last night I took one and had a SEVERE reaction. I think the problem is I had not eaten much in 2 days and the iodine hit me HARD! :-/ first I started itching allover, had what looked like small mosquito bites all over my arms, My hands swelled and I felt hot then I had what felt like heartburn, chest pains right between my breasts and deep down that would come and fade ALL NIGHT and to top it off I was on a date! This morning I feel fine. I had taken about 4 tablespoons of Benadryl and later chewed some aspirin thinking heart attack!! :-/
