Comments from related studies:
From this study (8 hours ago):
Dry, red, bumpy rash. Mostly on face, neck and upper body.
From this study (1 day ago):
Initially was given Metoprolol 25-50mg/day for high blood pressure 180/115. Was good and relaxed for about a week, then severe palpitations started to occur. Was taken off Metoprolol and put on Losartan 25-50mg/day and palpitations continued to be severe and frequent 2-5/day lasting a few minutes to an hour or two. Recovery was longer. Shortness of breath was accompanied. Was at cardiologist's office when a severe palpalitory event was occuring. He said I was having PAC's. I've been told PVC's as well in past visits to the doctors office. I stopped taking Losartan a week and a half ago. I've had several good days without palpitations occuring with a few days with severe palpitations occuring. I'm not sure if palpitations will cease, but I wasn't having palpitations or arrythmias prior to taking any of these medications. Again, I am seeing a marked improvement overall after ceasing these medications. I've lost 20 lbs or 10% of my body weight over the past 2-3 months and feel much better, but the severe palpitations do occur still without much warning. Last night I had an episode that lasted close to an hour and a half. After the palpitations reside and normal heart function returns, stomach sour sets in and I end up urinating frequently and also evacuating my bowells which help with recovery. My cardiologist says that the stomach sour is a result of the palpitations and not the other way around. My stomach isn't causing my palpitations. I will never take another med again in my life. It's poison to my system. How other's can tolerate this stuff is beyond me. I eat right and exercise everyday.
From this study (4 days ago):
I was on cymbalta for almost 3 yrs.with great success. Was just switched to the generic..all hell broke out.
