- Irregular heatbeat and prilosec
I am 65 M and a long history of Moderate hypertension. I am overweight, out of shape. 15-20 years ago when I didn't take BP medicine I had occasional PVCs, heart skips a beat.
Since I have been on Metoprolol (beta blocker) and Cozaar my BP is normal and heartbeat normal.
I have been on that regimen 15-20 years.
Now or in the last weeks or 2 I notice skipped beats and irregular, fast to slow and back on occasion
Recently It was suggested I may have sleep apnea and was definitely diagnosed with bad acid reflux by an Ear nose and throat specialist.
I was told to go on 2 OTC Prevacid/day for 3 months. I instead, since I had them, went on Prilosec-- slightly different.
I have been on Prilosec 2 or so weeks maybe 3.
It clicked in my mind today that maybe there is a connection.
I have a pretty expensive pulse oximeter (electronic finger thingy) and I can actually see flat lines and skipped beats and strength of pulse. Oxygen is 90 to 94. Also I started taking aspirin out of fear
- Dymista and burning mouth syndrome
Is anyone experiencing a burning sensation in the mouth while taking Dymista? I never experienced this problem before. In February of this year I started to experience pain (burning sensation and prickly pain) in my inner cheeks, under the tongue, and in the floor of my mouth. I have been to several doctors who are unable to locate any visible issues. I decided to stop taking Dymista today to see what happens before I decide to get a biopsy. Anyone else experiencing a similar issue? Thank you!

Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 months ago):
I am taking only 5mg a day but as I decrease my dose to every other day, the burning and tenderness in my mouth and tongue decrease. I was told by my dentist that menopause can have a side effect of burning mouth syndrome and I have done some researching on the web about this syndrome and there isn't a known cause other than menopause. I would like to see how many women who are going through menopause art taking Lexipro/escitalopram(generic) have these symptoms. A lot of middle aged women take this and I wonder if it is actually the medication causing burning mouth and not menopause.
From this study (2 years ago):
all over rash round spots intense itching,
From this study (4 years ago):
burning tongue has lasted 5 months and hasn't improved. Physicians haven't been able to help relieve stinging.
