- Ears thundering after suboxone or any opiate
Anyone notice the thundering in your ears after taking suboxone. Larger doses mostly and it actually happens with any opiate. It's a rumbling in the ears, I did read that hearing loss and opiates were connnected. hmmm
- 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!
- Avapro back pain and other symptoms along the way.
Been taking avapro for last 6 years and every now and then a weird symptom surfaces.
In the begining it was tiredness no energy, then it was several near misses on the hiway because the drug interfered wih my brain/ vision, then unexplained bruising, mental fog,severe thirst,dry cough,not very good bp control, slows urination, and when my dosage was upped I now have middle back pain and front rightside pain ...not diagnosed yet but i feel my gallbladder is acting up.
- Ulcerative colitis from suboxone?
Anyone else out there experiencing ulcerative colitis after multiple yearprescribed Suboxone? Suboxone stole a large portion of my life, and now I am considering going on a full-agonist analgesic until the buprenorphine bond has broken, and no more presence of it in my plasma. Insane!
- Avoid lisinopril or any ace inhibitor
This was the only drug I was taking other than low-dose aspirin 3x/week.
Within 2 days I began coughing, as though something was deep in my lungs; became long severe coughing fits than threw out my back, sore all over. Then began runny nose, exhaustion, occasional mild chest pain. Not connecting the dots, after a month of this I returned to my dr., who prescribed an antibiotic and inhaler, saying I had asthma! After a week starting feeling worse, sore throat and sore lungs from coughing, in bed from exhaustion.
After reading on-line about identical symptoms from LISINOPRIL, I immediately stopped it; now, 2 weeks later I am beginning to feel better -- cough much better. I am hoping I will be one of the lucky ones who does not have the cough continue. By the way, this drug reduced my bp from 140/100 to 110/80 BUT I'd rather have high bp than take this poison.
Now I learn than many deaths have resulted from use of Lisinopril. Had this drug caused my death, no one would know my story as I have no relatives to tell it; am assuming many unreported have died and of course are not able to go on-line and tell their story post-death!
All I can do is ask WHY is this drug allowed to be sold -- even stranger, in my case the drugstore is giving this poison away at no charge -- a first; but WHY?

when taking zubolv blood pressure goes up
From this study (1 year ago):
I suffer from extreme pain in my hand/wrist area after a boxer break/fracture that occurred 4 years ago.. I also have very bad pain in my sciatic nerve(l4 vertebra) that flares up at least a dozen times a month.. I have a chronic back pain on my c1 to c3 vertebra.. Feels as if it is a tingling/zapping/tickle in between the vertebra.. The pain and tickle feel as if I cannot get to them and are on the inside or otherside of spine.. I get very bad tension headaches/ migraines 1 to 3 times a week. Starting at the base of my skull and running up above my eyes.. Sometimes it's a feeling of pain/tickle on my brain sometimes it's a dull pressure sinus pain, sometimes it's a like a scorpion is stinging my brain.. Unusual symptom is when I look directly into a light bulb the pain is subsided but pressure still exists. Also have muscle tension very bad around the bothered areas of the neck and upper back between shoulder blades.. Cracking, stretching, traction, inversion table, chiropractor and massage therapist have not helped. Only thing that relieves it is wrapping a towel around my neck/head and pulling up wards taking pressure off my spine.. Then I feel normal and can breathe better and hear better until I release the towel and reality is back.. Have been in couple car accidents, skiing accidents, snowmobile accidents and worked as a mechanic for 4 years bent over cars all day.. Also for 5 years I mowed lawns for a living and road big machines with no suspension for 8 hours a day for 5 years straight... X-ray shows lots of arthritis.. Have lack of funds to get MRI.. I have tried to get pain pills from doctors but they tell me to take ibuprofen Aleve and ice it.. I couldn't take it anymore and started buying Vicodin and oxycodone from people.. I then grew a small tolerance 50 to 75 mg a day and it became a financial issue... I seen a suboxone doctor to get off opiates before I was bankrupt... Now back to 10 ibuprofen and or Aleve a day and tons of anxiety stress and high blood pressure from the pain..
