  • I have mild myasyhenia gravis and have recently had heart surgery. could surgery, or anesthetics aggravate or exacerbate myasthenia gravis symptoms?
    I was also given intravenous antibiotics prior to and during surgery. i am wondering if this could have exacerbated Myasthenia Gravis symptoms that are usually controlled by mestinon.
  • Side effects of cimetidine(tagamet)? should i worry?
    Hello, I'm 17 years old, I have taken Tri-nessa(Birth control) since January of last year(2014) with no side effects.
    I've been having an Acid Reflux problem for a few years(Since I got my Gallbladder removed in 2011). It got really bad by the end of last year (2014) and I've been having multiple problems since Urgent Care diagnosed me with Gastritis. I then assumed I had heart problems due to a lot of issues/deaths with other people and their hearts. Got an EKG, it came out fine. Now, for Gastritis, they put me on Protonix, I was taking it up until this past Wednesday when my Doctor put me on Cimetidine(Tagamet), she also gave me info to go see a GI doctor. Thursday afternoon (Around 1:50-2:50)I had gotten really dizzy like my blood sugar dropped immensely. Ate some candy in hopes to make it better, didn't help (My family has a history of Diabetes). I begged my school to rush me to the ER, but they didn't see anything physically wrong with me, therefore, they said no.

    And so, I went home with my friend and relaxed. Since then, I've been having these 'Tension headaches' that start in my left sided neck and travel up into my head(It switches sides sometimes, or just wraps all around and into the back) for about 3 to 5 hours putting a really hard pressure on my head like someone is crushing it under a wheel, sometimes it feels like I'm being jabbed with a small needle in random spots too. I tried taking Ibuprofen to remove some pressure of the headache, but to no avail. Friday, I went into the ER. They did bloodwork, took a urine sample, did a chest x-ray, and did three EKGs on me. They didn't find much else but a teeny hiccup in my EKG - nothing to panic about - they said, but if I want to feel comforted that my heart is fine, I can see a cardiologist (Going to see one tomorrow). Saturday, I started noticing a swelling over my left breast, next to my armpit. It, and my breasts, have little pains that surge through them every now and again. I also noticed that around my throat to my collarbone, on my chest (left & right), over my shoulder and to my back neck has started to burn and ache as well. The aching will send pains down my spine and make doing anything seem annoying. ON TOP of that, I've been having random coughs, sometimes my face has pressure on it, and Sunday morning I couldn't stop sweating in my sleep. I suspect I slept the wrong way on my neck and the nerves are causing the pain in my chest area, or my acid reflux is causing severe heartburn.

    My big question is, should I go back into the ER and have them test my breasts and neck/spine, or should I kick back and relax in knowing it's just a few side effects from my Cimetidine and a little ache in my neck from sleeping wrong that will go away shortly? (I read it can cause tenderness in the breasts, usually for guys, but maybe girls too?)
    My family doesn't have much money, and my father thinks I'm being a hypochondriac, but I know I have a lot to live for so I'm praying it's really just nothing.
  • Should call my doctor
    I have been on the above drugs three days. Tody I have 100 degree fever and a cough the often results in a cough head ache. I also have a post nasal drip.

  • Terrible excessive sweating from hydrochlorothiazide
    I guess I fit the profile of who gets excessive sweating from HCTZ. I am a 65 year old female and suffered from excessive sweating for two years. With just very little exertion, I would pour sweat from the top of my head. It would run into my face and all over my hair. My hair would be ringing wet. I had heavy perspiration in the groin area and down my back also. I had to change clothing 2-3 times a day and wash up or shower that many times also. The doctor tried changing my Cymbalta and put me on Wellbutrin instead. It did absolutely no good. I went off the wellbutrin and back onto the Cymbalta. I did some research and saw that HCTZ could cause excessive sweating. Both my doctor and my pharmacist said that they had never heard of that. I went off the HCTZ, and my sweating stopped almost immediately. My doctor and my pharmacist were very surprised. I'm one of those people who frequently have different reactions to drugs than are typical. If you're having excessive perspiration and are on HCTZ, try going off of it. It just may be the culprit!
  • 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.
  • Ranitidine is bad juju
    Used 3-5 times per week for about 1 1/2 years. Noticed:
    shortness of breath
    contstricted throat
    bloating
    chest pain/pressure
    heart palpatations
    dryness - more so than usual

    I quit taking it and felt much better within 2-3 days.
  • Loss of voice and stomach issues
    Prescribed to take 2 - 300 mg tablets of Clindamycin prior to dental procedure to to knee implant done a month and half before dental procedure. Took two pills one hour prior and immediate severe burning of throat, esophagous and stomach with constant nausea. Still have symptons - ie loss of voice, low grade nausea. have had multitude of tests - ie. EGD's, monometry, transesophageal (with transmitter to determine extent of now reflux) Have to eat small amounts of food at a time. Have lost 23 lbs. Affects my every day life - difficult to talk on phone, talking in groups - just limit my socialization. Could not work if I wanted to with voice. Throat is constantly sore.
  • Metoprolol tartate* bad side effects
    This drug caused me to gain 25 pounds, it caused depression, exhaustion, vivid dreams, joint pain, personality changes, I walk/jog frequently and could no longer jog at all. At one point I had vision problems, things would "jump" so badly that I couldn't drive (I am not sure what that was, they said whatever it was it was not my eyes. Confusion, memory problems. I think my infrequent SVTs were made worse. It made my life a living hell. My children finally said that if I didn't do something they would! I found a new Dr. and I was taken off of it and a review of all my original cardiac tests came back totally normal and I didn't need it anyway. And the only way I would ever take this medicine is if it were a last resort. There are other drugs that would have worked that have a lot less side effects. A cardiac nurse told me that Metoprolol is one of the worst for side effects. My husband has serious heart issues and was put on this med..I have noticed a lot of the same changes in him and I will work to have them change his medication also.

  • From this study (1 week ago):

  • I have had 2 ocular migraines with elevated blood pressure this month. Could it be the Zantac? I took one last night for heartburn and had an ocular migraine this morning. Lately I have had a lot of flushing of the face and wake up with my face flushed in the morning although my blood pressure has been normal. I have had heartburn since taking the Lopressor and Norvasc and that is why I started on the Zantac OTC. I used to have ocular migraines about 30 years ago and they were related to decongestants.

    I am wondering if any of the above drugs could be causing my flashing lights type migraine. I do not have any severe pain with this. Could it be drug interaction and which one is causing the flushing of the face and heartburn. It did not start until I started the Lopressor and Norvasc.
