  • Claritin 24 hour causing bladder control loss in child. not a lot of information out there on this.
    Helped his cough and don't know whether to try Zyrtec or something like that. Tried Benadryl for couple of days and no help with cough and so far no il side effect including bladder control
  • Sudden tinnitus with hearing loss with telmisartan 40mg
    sudden onset of unilateral moderate sensorineural hearing loss folowing 48 hrs of Telmisartan 40mg
  • My ex-boyfriend's effexor effects (1 response)
    In my fifth year of living with my ex-boyfriend, he began taking Effexor and soon developed urinary incontinence, kidney failure and nightmares or night terrors so severe that he frequently screamed for prolonged periods, flailed and threw punches in his sleep. Upon ceasing to take Effexor, his sleep returned to normal. His kidneys also recovered, and he regained the ability to control urination. About a year after that, he was arrested for downloading child pornography, and I haven't spoken to him since. I'm not suggesting that Effexor caused him to become a pedophile, but it has been noted to produce personality changes in some users. It would be hard to ascertain whether any or all of these side effects resulted from the drug, but I would NEVER take it or allow anyone I cared about to do so. He had never exhibited any such symptoms before taking it, and I feel it ruined his life on many levels.
  • Melformin and hiccups
    Started Metformin yesterday at 250 mg after breakfast. Severe hiccups for 5+ hours, approx 5 - 10.30 p.m. Very hard to relieve by breathing into a bag and took several tries to stop. Could not stop until I alkalised with Bi-carb soda in water, twice. Started again in the night, about 1.30 am. Took a large dose of bi-carb soda in water to alkalise my stomach and was able to relieve the problem fairly quickly, again by breathing into a bag to deprive the diaphragm of oxygen and increase the CO2 level. Feeling an inclination to hiccups again today and regularly alkalising and so far no hiccup outbreak
  • Polymyalgia rheumatica (1 response)
    Diagnosed 12 months ago with type 2 diabetes - diet controlled. Diagnosed recently with polymyalgia rheumatica. Prescribed prednisone. This caused my blood sugar levels to skyrocket and. Now require insulin injections. Have developed a rash on arms & face. Have tried tapering prednisone dosage but pain levels come back up.

    Currently on 20mg daily. Still have pain in the morning & at night. Am worried about prednisone side effects.

  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • I started taking Micardis (telesmartin) in 2008, in 2009 I started going through menopause with numberous hot flashes throughout the day. I began noticing suttle differences in my face, my nose started getting wider and my eyelids started getting droopy. I also started gaining weight. I quit smoking in 2007 so atributed my weight gain to this and menopause. In 2009 I also started experiencing shortness of breath and tightening of the chest. I went for tests and everything came back good and also did a lung capacity test and it was normal as well. I was tired all the time and just didn't have the desire or energy to do much besides go to work. In Feb, 2012 I started getting swelling of the eyelids, so much so that I could not see out of my eyes because the lids were so heavy. Between Feb and April I missed alot of work and in March I realized the reactions came when I was at work. My company has moved me to one of our other offices and I now commute from my home to work whereas I worked in the same town that I live before. I am happy to be employed and ablet o work continually rather than be on sick leave so am fine with the communte. Once I left the building, my reactions stopped for the most part, I would have a small flare up if I went back into the building or entered old musky buildings for any length of time. This summer I started having reactions towards the end of July and my face seems to be continually swollen since then. I had an allergy test in July 2012 with minimal response to household dust, feathers, snow mold, cows and mixed mold and scored 1 out of 4 for the first 4 items and 2 out of 4 for mixed mold. There was a time in my late twenties, early thirties where I would retain fluids really bad before my menstrual cycle but this stopped and I went back to normal water retention during that time. I have had ezema as a child and would develop rashes if I wore latex gloves for too long when I was a hospital cook but the rash would go away once I took the gloves off. My first time eating curried chicken I loved it but broke out in a red rash on my forehead and cheeks, reactions got worse if I ate anything with currie in it after that (ingested unknowingly). One day I had drinks with friends and drank Bombay Sapphire Gin made from 21 different herbs & spices, I had a reaction that night and had to miss work the next day because I was so sick. Other than that I have not had any other allergy type problems. Could my angioedema be caused by Micardis?
