I was taking cymbalta with biotin and found it makes me regurgitate profusely.
From this study (5 years ago):
I began experiencing these symptoms last week when then urologist gave me Flomax to treat urinary retention. On further investigation it appears women should NOT be prescribed Flomax. Also, I have severe anaphylactic allergy to sulpha drugs which also is counter-indication for prescription of Flomax. In addition, I take Cardizem for my heart (HBP). Needless to say, I stopped taking Flomax immediately, but it took nearly two days for the symptoms to subside. Any comments or suggestions?
