My wife suffers from Uveitis from time to time. She is HLAB27+ and Uveitis is induced for being HLAB27+. She seems to have Ankylosing Spondilyosis. So she takes sulphasazine ( Sazo 1000 two times). This sulphasazine has induced high blood pressure and accordingly, she has to take Telma-40. Earlier she was taking Amlopdine and Betaloc ( due to high pulse rate). Both it seem to promote Uveitis. This has been found from this ehealth group and so I am grateful to this group. So she is using Telma-40 and it seems to not promoting Uveitis. I have placed the issue of promoting Uveitis by Amlopidin/ Betaloc before doctors; but they are not willing to accept the truth. However, I am grateful to e-Health for finding out this truth. Regards.
