Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 week ago):
I previously took Micardis, and when the generic Telmisartan came out I was switched to that about 3 months ago. Would the generic (Telmisartan)cause a rash if the brand name (Micardis) did not ???
From this study (3 weeks ago):
Developed severed acid reflux 3 years ago, was so severed that I was given nexium to help with the symptons, the medication helped with the reflux. A little while later I developed a small pain in the one heel, but only in the mornings when I first got up, the symptons did not ease up and only got worse, some days I struggle to walk, the pain has also gone from one heel to the other. I was wondering if the pain in the heel (which I suspect may be gout), is related to the acid reflux, and/or the medication, micardis, which I am taking for high blood pressure
