  • Severe tired taking miralax
    I WAS CONSTPATED SO I STARTED USING MIRALAX UNDER A DOCTORS RECOMEDATION I HAVE BEEN FALLING ASLEEP BAD AN CAN HARDLY FUNCTION THIS STUFF IS NOTHING TO BE ON FULL TIME CANT DRIVE OR OPERATE MACHINERY DANGEROUS NO JOKE PEOPLE WARNING LABLE SHOULD BE PUT ON THIS PRODUCT AN WHY THE HELL NONE BEEN ALREADY!!!
  • 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!
  • Avapro back pain and other symptoms along the way.
    Been taking avapro for last 6 years and every now and then a weird symptom surfaces.
    In the begining it was tiredness no energy, then it was several near misses on the hiway because the drug interfered wih my brain/ vision, then unexplained bruising, mental fog,severe thirst,dry cough,not very good bp control, slows urination, and when my dosage was upped I now have middle back pain and front rightside pain ...not diagnosed yet but i feel my gallbladder is acting up.
  • Avoid lisinopril or any ace inhibitor
    This was the only drug I was taking other than low-dose aspirin 3x/week.
    Within 2 days I began coughing, as though something was deep in my lungs; became long severe coughing fits than threw out my back, sore all over. Then began runny nose, exhaustion, occasional mild chest pain. Not connecting the dots, after a month of this I returned to my dr., who prescribed an antibiotic and inhaler, saying I had asthma! After a week starting feeling worse, sore throat and sore lungs from coughing, in bed from exhaustion.
    After reading on-line about identical symptoms from LISINOPRIL, I immediately stopped it; now, 2 weeks later I am beginning to feel better -- cough much better. I am hoping I will be one of the lucky ones who does not have the cough continue. By the way, this drug reduced my bp from 140/100 to 110/80 BUT I'd rather have high bp than take this poison.
    Now I learn than many deaths have resulted from use of Lisinopril. Had this drug caused my death, no one would know my story as I have no relatives to tell it; am assuming many unreported have died and of course are not able to go on-line and tell their story post-death!
    All I can do is ask WHY is this drug allowed to be sold -- even stranger, in my case the drugstore is giving this poison away at no charge -- a first; but WHY?
  • Hot flashes while taking miralax
    After being on daily dose of Miralax for a year and then going off for a few months, after starting back in 2 weeks, experiencing hot flushes periodically all day long last around 30 seconds. I didn't realize when I first started the Miralax for the 1st year that my Hot Flushes may have been a side affect. I even had requested labs to test for menopause which show negative. Again, after I stopped the miralax the hot flushes ceased. As stated above they are back. These did not wait for me to be on the drug 2 or more years either it was within weeks of starting.
