  • My daughter is on her second pack of tri-cyclen pills. last month & again last night had her in the er for a severe panic attack. can it be pill related? (3 answers)
    (Asked by a 17 year old girl who has Panic Attack, and takes Tri-sprintec)
    My daughter is on her second pack of these. She is 17, healthy and no history of Panic of any sort. She is active with cheerleading and never had any problems. During the first pack she had a panic attack during the middle week. She had to go to the ER because she couldn't breath and chest pain and numbness. They said Panic attack. The obgyn said go ahead and try for another month and see what happens. Well, last night while at cheer camp, 1 hr from home. I get a call from a nurse that paramedics are there and I can hear her crying in the back ground and in a panic. They didn't think it could be from these pills either. I get there and find that another girl on team started these in January and she has had 3 episodes of the same sort, but the doctors say it shouldn't be from these. I just think it is strange she had never done anything like this until she started these. Has anyone heard of anyone else having problems with these pills? By the way I took them home. Not taking them anymore.

  • Ovary pain disappeared
    (Posted by a 43 year old woman who has Ovarian Cyst, and takes Spironolactone)
    I have been taking Spironolactone 50mg for over a year that was prescribed by my dermatologist for acne. Prior to this I had daily pain in my right ovary for the previous 2 years with laproscopic surgery for tubal ligation the gyn did not see anything on this ovary to cause the pain, but my pain is gone when I'm taking Sprionolactone. I also did not have a period for 10 months until I recently took a break from Spironolactone. The pain came back and I had a period. I have not discussed this yet with my gynocologist but plan to on my next visit.
