  • I am taking losartan so can i also take methimazole for my thyroid

  • Is there a support group in the us for people with insulinomas? (1 answer)
    SUPPORT GROUP IN UNITED STATES!!!

    Hi, the only support group that I've been able to find for people with insulinomas is located in the UK... just wondering if there is one in the US. I had pancreatic surgery to remove my first insulinoma in 2012, we're thinking there's another because I'm still having problems with hypoglycemia... if anyone know anything, PLEASE CONTACT ME!!! :)
    I know there can't just be a support group here for FERRETS!!! people are kind of important... I hate this song, but "Don't worry, BE HAPPY" is okay, I guess... I'm trying to force it upon myself. Things will get BETTER!!!
  • Have people on pravstatin experienced muscle cramps on the same level as those taking zocor?
    experience severe thigh cramps often when using Zocor.

    afraid to start using pravastatin and wonder if pravastatin would cause the same
  • Why is my left ankle swelling? my doctor says it is from the graves disease
    HELP! my doctor took me off of my beta blockers and now my left ankle is swelling again? She says it is just my thyroid receptors. I don't think its that clear cut
  • I was treated for overactive thyroid with methimazole, thyroid levels now lowered was directed to stop methimazole, have been off methimazole now for 3 weeks, but my blood pressure is still 224/117 (1 answer)
    I was recently diagnosed with overactive thyroid, no nodules or cancer, I had all the symptoms that you could have. Heart palpitations, high blood pressure,hand tremors, anxiety, wgt loss, muscle aches, weak legs and diarrhea. I was treated with methimazole for the overactive thyroid and inderal for the heart palpitations, ativan for the anxiety, and clonidine 2-3 times a day if systolic blood pressure is over 180. After 3 weeks my thyroid levels have returned to almost normal and was directed to stop taking methimazole now and to follow up with endocrinologist in 6 wks. My concern is that my blood pressure is still very high 224/117, I had lisinopril 5mg added to my medicine list, but doesn't seem to be helping, I am also taking the as needed clonidine 3-4x a day which doesn't seem to be helping much either. I am wondering if anyone that has had hyperthyroidism with secondary hypertension and was treated with methimazole..if after stopping methimazole continued to have high blood pressure?

  • Allopurinol and muscle cramps
    Approximately 5 years ago I developed gout and my physician prescribed allopurinol. After a period of time I began to have muscle spasms in the calves of my legs at night. My doctor gave me a prescription for restless leg syndrome, which helped for a short time. I was then given a different prescription when that one no longer helped, and finally a third prescription, which did not work either. The cramps continued to grow more severe and more frequent. I was also having extremely severe cramps in my left hand, to the point that I could not straighten my fingers for several excruciating minutes. Although the cramps in my calves had lessened significantly, my toes were starting to cramp severely.



    I stopped taking allopurinol about a month ago, and since then I realized that my hands and toes were cramping less and less, and now it is almost completely gone. I inadvertently stopped the allopurinol and I lost the bottle of pills and didn't realize it until I went to refill my pill box that holds a month's supply divided into daily doses. I searched on the internet and found that muscle problems are not uncommon for some people taking allopurinol.
