Comments from related studies:
From this study (4 months ago):
I have pain in my hands (stinging and burning) and feet are numb and burn sometimes. GP says I have gout and periphal neuropath. Have high blood pressure. Afib is condiered not severe and all my cardiologist recomends is a blood thinner.
MD took me off of lovastatin because he said it was attaching my body. Cholestrol is high. 200 to 250.
From this study (13 months ago):
Blood pressure is well controlled (120/80) but feeling faint at times like it is too low. I exercise regularly, but don't seem to lose the 20-30 extra pounds (I weight 225) so my Dr does refuses to reduce the meds until my BMI score is better . Erections are getting slower to build, faster to lose and harder to maintain. Dr. prescribed Cialis but besides costing over $20 a pill and not covered by insurance, it makes my ears ring like crazy.
From this study (1 year ago):
my main concern is the erectile dysfunction, which appeared soon after starting Cymbalta and Oxybutynin, the othercomplaints are, I believe, related to the ARV's
