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 week ago):
Had a rash on my arm that wasn't clearing up. Has spread to my stomach. My dermatologist put me on Terbinafine but was concerned about the interaction with Pravastatin. The insert to the terbinafine warned of interaction with Metoprolol so I have been researching it and came across your website.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
My doctor had me try 1/2 tab of the Micardis HCT and 2 of the Carvedilol but this only made my BP go too high.
