  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • Believe my problem is with Formoterol. Symptoms (breathlessness and being winded with minimal exertion) first noted three years ago after taking Foradil aerolizer (formoterol) and asmanex twisthaler for one to two years. Health, stamina gradually dimished to shortness of breath with minimal exertion. One - two years ago prescription changed to symbicort. health improved dramatically for approximately two months. Began walking one to two miles a day. Now back to being winded with minimal exertion. Health seems better until I take my symbicort. Spiriva seems to counter act breathlessness at morning when I take with symbicort. At evening with no Spiriva, breathlessness prevails. using Spiriva twice daily works but doctor says no.

  • causes acute thirst and dehydration symptoms that I treat with water and ice between water intake. I have had a bout with a bulging disc in the past but this was quite different. I wasn't having any of these symptoms. I was very really good except I was having this drainage to my throat and ears. When I would cough, it was mostly nonproductive so that is why I took two Musinex DM tabs before bed with a full glass of water followed by orange juice and bread stick. Two hours before I had taken two vitamins C tabs for the first time in a month. After taking the pills and falling asleep, I woke with a back ache. I just thought I needed to increase my water, so I did. When I attempted to get up for the restroom from all the water, I was in acute back pain and it became such a struggle that I was using the furniture for support. No pain down the leg or foot. Such hard to turn over, stand up, or walk! It has been 10 hours and I am still having symptoms but not as severe, If I fall asleep and don't continue the water, the symptoms return.
