From this study (3 weeks ago):
For the last 3 years in the spring, I have developed a severe cough and peripheral edema. I was hospitalized for this 2 years ago when the cough wouldn't resolve and the edema became cellulitis. Antibiotics help with the cough, but the edema persists. Never had this so late in the year, usually resolved by now.
From this study (4 weeks ago):
I've been taking Flonase and zyrtec together for about a month. Last night I developed a stiff neck. I haven't done any strenuous exercise or injured it. The pain is coming from the back of my head, bottom of my skull and behind the ears. I was wondering if this could be a drug related reaction.
From this study (1 month ago):
3 incidents in past week. Profuse nosebleed in one nostril. Lasted less than 10 minutes.

Can you answer these questions (what is this?):
- Could this drug cause periodontal bone loss, bone loss around teeth
Do you suffer from periodontal bone loss or periodontal disease, or bone loss around teeth after taking this drug? Are your sodium levels low after taking this drug? I am a dentist and keep my teeth plaque free, but have had periodontal bone loss for which, I believe, must be drug related.
- Does claritin have an anticoagulant effect?
I thought I had conquered my nosebleed problems with saline nasal mist and saline nasal gel, but now I've started on Claritin (actually Walitin, Walgreen's knockoff) for an unrelated reason and the nosebleeds have started again. Is this because of the Claritin or just a coincidence?
- Has any one been getting nosebleeds from taking this medication
starting getting nosebleeds in about three weeks from starting this medication.Had a sever nosebleed today at work thy had to call EMTS just to get it stop.
