  • Side effects of using terazosin
    I have been on terazosin for 9 days. The ringing in my ears is unbearable, dizzy in the night if I wake up to use the bathroom, intermittent throbbing heartbeat. Also very significant is dramatic decrease in libido and difficulty achieving satisfaction. Dose started at 5 mg at night, reduced to 2 mg. at night after two days and ringing does not go away. I have permission from my doctor to discontinue use and replace with Lisinopril.

  • Lyrica varied widely
    I was prescribed Lyrica for treatment of chronic pain. It was ineffective, but it knocked out the symptoms of interstitial. However, it also caused rapid weight gain (I went from 110 to 130 lbs. in just a few weeks) and my ankles started to swell. The pain doctor advised me to discontinue the drug, but the urologist suggested lowering the dose. I did, and the swelling went down. I weighed myself daily and watched what I ate, and my weight returned to normal within a month. Subsequently, I continued taking the lower dose and had no further problems. Then I developed severe spinal stenosis, and my dosage of Lyrica was increased to six 75 capsules daily, in addition to 480 mg of morphine sulphate. I tolerated the Lyrica well. After surgery, however, my ankles began to swell again, and although I didn't have a problem with weight gain, I developed a bright red rash from ankles to knees. I dropped the dosage of Lyrica to 50 mg twice daily, and had no further side effects. The rash simply disappeared, with no damage to the skin. Following the surgery, I was able to titrate off morphine completely. I continue to take Lyrica twice daily. It doesn't seem to affect pain (I still ache a bit, as I have degenerative changes in all joints) but it does dampen peripheral neuropathy, which I experience both in my toes and balls of my feet. It also dampens the neuropathy in my forehead, where I had four surgeries to remove a malignant melanoma. I have had no side effects other than those mentioned, and find it interesting the I could tolerate a high dosage of Lyrica prior to surgery, but after surgery could not, and that adverse side effects varied not only with the dosage but with my own physical condition. I don't find it to be highly effective in treating neuropathy, but it does still the tingling enough to let me sleep and take my mind off the condition.

  • Lantus and gastroperesis
    My husband for 10yrs was diagnosed as type 2 diabetic. Nov 10/13 he was admitted to hospital DKA blood sugar got to 38...severe vomiting, flu like symptoms, high blood pressure. During his stay he was put on insulin, nova rapid 3 times per day and Lantus. Over the coarse of him becoming sick, he had lost quite an amount of weight...during his hospital stay he went as low as 128 pounds from 165/170 lbs. Nov 20 released from hospital, now on insulin...for near three weeks he was doing well, eating, blood sugars were coming down and trying to scale the insulin. Dec 19/13 this all changed, vomiting, nausea, chest pain, weakness, constant hiccups, burping and extreme tiredness. I took him to emerg was told was most likely the flu. Dec 26th back to emerg due to vomiting 12 times per day, put on iv and tests were done, abdomen ultrasound, chest xray, blood work, etc all came back fine. Dec. 29 back to emerg same thing this point we were told could be gastroparesis. By the time Jan came same symptoms he had at this point been on blood pressure pills twice per day, stomach med's which they give cancer patients, taking 2 times per day and tecta once per day. Jan17/14 we finally had appointment with the endo...to discover his blood pressure was extremely low, now being weined off this medication. He did regain a bit more energy, could stand normal but still not eating much. We figured this was the answer, however to find it was not the vomiting continued etc and the sleeping, feeling cold all the time etc. weight still not going up much as food would not stay down. March 17/14 admitted to hospital where we were told gastroparesis. A scope of the stomach had been done prior and was clear. The nausea continued and was put on domperidone 3 times per day, and tecta once in the morning. This elimated the extreme vomiting however nausea sleeping, under weight, heartburn, etc continued. Frustrated we wanted a referral out of town which we have just went to, ct scans are going to be done and continue with the tecta and domperiedone...we have questioned numerous times since Dec/13 and for the last 7 months could it be the insulin, and many times were told no very unlikely. June/14 I again doing research on the internet stumbled across a forum where patients were blaming the lantus. Exact symptoms like my husband....at the end of our rope I told him to not take the lantus that Thursday night, monitor is blood as soon as he gets up. After a nights sleep blood sugar was 7 and he felt good. Normally around 10 am would start to feel nausea, this did not happen. He kept taking his pills for the stomach. After two weeks of the not taking the lantus ...he is eating, gaining weight, energy, no cold feeling, no heartburn etc. Now we decided to go off the pills, he now has his life back....he is able to resume a full day work, finding at night harder to sleep as he has more energy. For 7 months I watched him fade away to nothing where quality of life was nil, and not one medical professional even questioned the insulin. He continues to take the nova rapid 3 times per day, blood pressure is normal and no pills, blood sugars are under 10 still. More research needs to be out there for patients, the side effects listed do not even mention the symptoms he had. The binding agents? could they be the cause? There is NOT enough information on this drug,listing severe side effects. He did not have swelling or itching etc on the injection site. It took a frustrated wife and husband to take a chance on a gut instint and glad we did...
