From this study (7 days ago):
was on victoza, ended up causing pancreatitis, doctor doesnt think it was caused by victoza, wants to send me to ge doctor
From this study (1 year ago):
I am concerned about the drug Pacerone, as I am seeing no improvement after being taken off Propafenone 225MG every 8 hours, and the Dialtiazem also... suddenly my heart rate put me in the hospital emergency room, resulting in a cardioversion to slow the rate from 205.
The replacement of Dialtiazem, and adding of Pacerone has me concerned, and I want to know what reactions have been reported, so I can discuss them with my doctor.

Hi, I am a 57 yr. old female. One yr ago I had a blockage in the artirey of my right leg and I had to have surgery. I had been on colestiral medicine but still had a blockage. I was put on pravachol and I have been misreable. I have coughed over a yr now. I have decided to quit taking it at this time. I have been to the doctor about this but they blame it on other things.
