- Wondering if dexilant is causing my problem (2 answers)
have had my prostate checked by urologist and prostate is slightly enlarged but not enough to cause problems.urinary track ok,bladder ok etc.
drank a liter of water and bladder emptied ok in test.
seem to urinate good after consuming coffee or beer but lately having more whiskey than beer.
when I drink whiskey I don't urinate much in evening but have to get up 3 or 4 times during the night to urinate.amlodipine,ramipril,atenolol are for blood pressure.
rosuvastatin for cholesterol,methocarbonal for sore back,pseudoephedrine and ibuprofen are for sinus headaches caused from smoking cigarettes.
so anybody out there think dexilant might be causing my urinating during the night problem ?
plus when I do go during the night I don't seem to completely empty my bladder!
any ideas ?
- What can cause shortage of breath on exertion? (1 answer)
My main problem besides the general aches and stiffness which tends to happen as you age, is a shortness of breath if I am sitting doing nothing i don't seem to notice any problem with my breathing, but as soon as I get up and walk I really struggle .This problem appeared about two year ago , when I started coughing up phlegm , off to the docs had chest xray appeared ok, had a heart scan appeared ok, so ended up with the normal tools of the trade Inhalers which never seem to do any good. So I am looking for any help to identify my problem, maybe someone else has a similar problem and can through a bit light on mine.

- Thrush while on prograf
I am a health provider at an emergency room and had a patient come in because of a food bolus and when i examined his oral/pharynx I noticed he had thrush. Patient stated it has been their for a while. Patient also stated he has been having progressive difficulty in swallowing. Pt is a kidney transplant patient and has been worked up for other causes of his thrush (including HIV, as per patient results neg) and everything came back negative. I can only conclude that maybe the prograf which is a immunosupressent can possible be the cause
- Pancreatitis possibly related to ramipril
Started on Ramipril approximately 12/2012. Had first attack of acute pancreatitis 5/2013. Second attack 9/2103. Ultrasound and Abdominal CT scan normal. Other labs are normal. Lipase elevated both times and treatment required in hospital. Clear liquids and IV fluids were successful in treatment but no other causes for my pancreatitis have been identified. I am Type 2 Diabetic. Had a cardiac stent placed for arteriosclerosis (not symptomatic) a few years ago. It was found on general exam. After stress test 12/2012, my physician gave me Rx for Ramipril. In trying to find out a reason for my two episodes of pancreatitis, a friend mentioned someone she knew who had pancreatitis found to be related to his BP medication. I decided to research and found that others have had pancreatitis related to Ramipril. Thought I would share my story. Stopping this medication!

Comments from related studies:
From this study (44 minutes ago):
since being on the drug ramipril for high blood pressure for three months and seeing bleeding and spotting in the mornings.
From this study (7 days ago):
I am taking the Lipitor to lower Cholestrol and Ramipril and baby Asprin post heart attack in 2007 to keep blood pressure low and help prevent stroke. Recently, I had stroke like symptoms, and was put on Clopidogrel. Tests for stroke were negative, but the Clopidogrel was prescribed as a prophylaxis. Shortly after starting it, I started having constipation, which I had never had to such an extent before that. I haven't seen anywhere that clopidogrel was associated with constipation, but perhaps the drug combinations is at fault. The shoulder joint pain could be just old age. I had a dislocated shoulder and torn tendons in left side about 10 years ago. I was told because of the damage, that shoulder would become arthritic, but that doesn't explain the right shoulder, which has similar symptoms.
From this study (1 week ago):
Hip pain unable to sllep on that side it awakens me up
