Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (22 hours ago):

  • Was given this drug to aid in passing kidney stones following a lithotripsy procedure. Everything was fine until the urine cleared and no stones or particles were present in the urine strainer. I haven't been able to leave the bathroom for about four hours because I can't stop peeing. Sometimes it is just a dribble but it has also flowed normal. Hopefully this wears off soon since it is keeping me from getting any rest.

  • From this study (5 days 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 (2 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
