Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • I have mild myasyhenia gravis and have recently had heart surgery. could surgery, or anesthetics aggravate or exacerbate myasthenia gravis symptoms?
    I was also given intravenous antibiotics prior to and during surgery. i am wondering if this could have exacerbated Myasthenia Gravis symptoms that are usually controlled by mestinon.
  • I have been on amlodipine for approximately 3 months and have had terrible swelling in my legs and ankles along with pain and itching. should i be taken off this medication?
    I was previously taking Propranolol for blood pressure which didn't bother me at all, but last year I developed a breathing problem and was given Symbicort to help get rid of wheezing. The Symbicort and Propranolol don't mesh well so I was then put on Amlodipine. The swelling, pain and itching occurred right away. I asked the pharmacist about it and also my doctor and they both said a small percentage of people have this problem on this medication. I have tried many times to get my doctor to take me off of this medication but he insists it is best for me, but I disagree. I really don't want to have this problem for the rest of my life and I also won't have any skin left on my legs from the scratching, not to mention the pain that accompanies the swelling which seem to creep up to my knees and thighs and sometimes is so painful I just go to bed to lay down and hopefully the hydroclorithiazide will remove some of this water so that pain will go away. The doctor also doubled my dose of Losartin and Hydroclorithiazide. I'm up about 4-6 times a night going to the bathroom so it also interrupts my sleep. Is anyone else having this problem. I would prefer to go back on the Propranolol and get something other than Symbicort that won't interact with each other. Then I won't have pain and itching all the time. Does anyone have any input on this. I would really appreciate it.

    Thanks. Debbie CB

  • Terrible excessive sweating from hydrochlorothiazide
    I guess I fit the profile of who gets excessive sweating from HCTZ. I am a 65 year old female and suffered from excessive sweating for two years. With just very little exertion, I would pour sweat from the top of my head. It would run into my face and all over my hair. My hair would be ringing wet. I had heavy perspiration in the groin area and down my back also. I had to change clothing 2-3 times a day and wash up or shower that many times also. The doctor tried changing my Cymbalta and put me on Wellbutrin instead. It did absolutely no good. I went off the wellbutrin and back onto the Cymbalta. I did some research and saw that HCTZ could cause excessive sweating. Both my doctor and my pharmacist said that they had never heard of that. I went off the HCTZ, and my sweating stopped almost immediately. My doctor and my pharmacist were very surprised. I'm one of those people who frequently have different reactions to drugs than are typical. If you're having excessive perspiration and are on HCTZ, try going off of it. It just may be the culprit!

  • Blood in semen 3 times after taking viagra
    On three separate occasions, after using Viagra, I had large amounts of blood in my semen. This condition slowed down but each time produced blood in ejaculate for a period of 3 months EACH TIME. I went to a doctor each time, was tested for everything, ultrasounds , prostate, infection, all came back normal. PSA low etc. Each incident I took a Viagra and during sex I ejaculated semen. I waited a month, masturbated and everything was fine,, had sex and there was red blood in my precum. Finally after 3 months it stopped. The second time it occurred I was concerned and went back to the doctor to be told I was fine. The third time, it was directly related to Viagra. I can take Cialis without a problem. No one seems to say it is the Viagra,,, except my body
