  • Lipitor caused gout attack.
    My doctor gave me Lipitor to lower my Collestoral (240). Three days later I had lower stomach pains and the beginning of a Gout attack on my foot. I stopped taking the drug after 4 days when the full blown Gout attack came. I had been watching my diet and had not had a Gout attack for two years (my first one). Nothing changed except the Lipitor. I have no doubt the attack was brought on by the Lipitor. If you have Gout DO NOT TAKE LIPITOR (or its generic). Im now in my second week of pain and it's terrible.
  • Blood in semen 3 times after taking viagra
    On three separate occasions, after using Viagra, I had large amounts of blood in my semen. This condition slowed down but each time produced blood in ejaculate for a period of 3 months EACH TIME. I went to a doctor each time, was tested for everything, ultrasounds , prostate, infection, all came back normal. PSA low etc. Each incident I took a Viagra and during sex I ejaculated semen. I waited a month, masturbated and everything was fine,, had sex and there was red blood in my precum. Finally after 3 months it stopped. The second time it occurred I was concerned and went back to the doctor to be told I was fine. The third time, it was directly related to Viagra. I can take Cialis without a problem. No one seems to say it is the Viagra,,, except my body

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (3 weeks ago):

  • I take the Omeprazole (10+ years)in the morning and the Ranitidine (4-5 years) before bed to prevent night time vomiting while sleeping. I still have to supplement with Ant-acids periodically. I have been off several medications for over a year to include, Lisinopril, Simvastatin and Viagra which I chose to quit taken. I still have ED symptoms, but my main concern is short/long term memory loss. I have noticed over the last two years that I'll think of something that I want to look up on the internet. I'll sit down, open my netbook to do so and within the time the netbook is booting up, I'll have forgotten what I was going to search for. Long term hasn't been as noticeable but, I have noticed a decline in my mechanical knowledge.

  • Momfirst on Oct, 24, 2014:

    Please do not belittle this woman's pain or discomfort. It's been 2 years since your comment, and perhaps she is better. Let's hope so. My daughter's dermatologist prescribed accutane, like so many had before. I kept holding off because her acne started at 12 and I had heard about the side effects. Nothing worked for several years. We finally bit the bullet, her acne was on her back and chest and she couldn't wear a bathing suite or strapless dresses, even v neck t shirts were out. After little under a week on this horrible drug, she started feeling knee pain and swelling. Fluid pockets formed around her left knee. We went to the doctor and got a big defensive reaction from her. "No one here has ever had that happen" she says. "'My whole office has never had a patient that has had that reaction" . She then proceeds to stick a syringe into my daughters knee, with no anesthesia, she gets close to passing out on the table, and draws out fluid from the two biggest fluid pockets. She suggests it may be an infection. Of course it goes to the lab, and comes back negative. Clear, no bacteria. We go to orthopedist. X-rays, MRI, guess what? No damage, no degradation, bones perfect, no tissue damage. We knew this because my daughter had no accident or trauma. It was just the Accutane. No one believed us. Then the orthopedist reads the MRI, he says there is inflammation putting pressure on the joint. And excess fluid. It will come down gradually he hoped. "Maybe it's gout?" He wants to test next for crystals in the fluid. My daughter never had gout. She's 17. She weighs 90 pounds. She is otherwise healthy. Nowhere have I read that a gout flare up can last 2 months! I know it can affect anyone, but she is not in the largest predictor group for it, or anywhere near. No one in the family has or had it. I have read too many of these stories, and don't like it when people put down others and tell them to be happy they don't have cancer. That's just not responsible. My daughter has missed school. She can't walk. She is missing her sport season that was going to be a possible scholarship to college. She can't enjoy daily activities. If she has Gout now, it came from the accutane, or it is again, an incorrect diagnosis. No one wants to put the blame on accutane. These doctors make a fortune on these pharmaceuticals. If more people wrote, and got together on this issue, I feel it would be a great thing for others. Maybe we could stop this drug being prescribed and yes, doing great harm to their lives.
