Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Can xanax use cause female hair loss?
    I am losing a lot of hair. It started about two months ago, and I went to dermatologist who ordered some medication for two weeks. It stopped. I have been using Victoza for almost a year and take Xanax daily long term. Can either of these drugs cause my hair loss?? It's back now, and full speed. At this rate, I'll be bold in two weeks more. I'm desperate, but my doctors think if the Victoza is causing it, it will regenerate once I stop, which I'm in the process of doing. However, if there is a chance Xanax is causing it, I need to know to find an alternative drug for my nerves. Any help??
  • Cymbalta r/t autonomic neuropathy
    neurotin
    losartan 20 mg
    tired all the time, dizziness, chronic constipation, stomach pains, pins and needles, diabetic type 2 hx alcoholism resolved, gerd, early satiety
  • I have been losing a lot of hair since i started using victoria. does the hair loss slow down or stop all together once you have been on the medication for a year or more? (1 answer)

  • Gastro with constipation in a 4 year old only cause pain at night?
    In childrens hospital now have given the tag virus for stomach pain at night that is relieved by morphine
  • Can my symptoms actually pinpoint a cause/condition? (1 answer)
    I would just like insight on this. I'm on pain management right now, but it's just to manage the pain. Every thing else has really been not taken serious by any physican it office I've been to. Is this normal stuff many woman go through? I'm just sick of feeling like this between the constant pain & the daily having to pluck hairs it's insane. I'm in fantastic shape(used to be double my weight & now I'm 100lbs), the best looking I've ever been with a incredibly good looking husband & a wonderful family. My issues seem to detour a lot of things & while I'm young I'd like to get this solved or some type of solution to even maintain myself, not looking for a miracle, but would really appreciate answers.

  • Lymphadenopathy from milk of magnesia?
    I was constipated for 10 days with no relief from prune juice or stool softeners. During this time an aching pain developed in my right hip and right lower back. I drank 3 tbs of Milk of Magnesia for two days and it alleviated my constipation. The hip and lower back pain started to go away too. Soon after taking Milk of Magnesia, a lymph node became swollen and very painful in my right arm pit.
  • Constipation due to nyquil
    Very bad constipation. Had lower stomach pains for days
  • Victoza and liver cancer (cholangiocarcinoma)
    My husband was recently diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer after taking Victoza for several years. The doctor discontinued the Victoza when the cancer was diagnosed but he actually started feeling better after he stopped it until the cancer started progressing. Since cholangiocarcinoma nd pancreatic cancer are similar, is there a link between Victoza and cholangiocarcinoma?
  • Victoza and breast cancer
    I took victoza for about 1 year. I have no history of breast cancer 9 my family.
  • Nexium improves my constipation
    Started taking Nexium 1 week ago and I noticed improvement with my chronic constipation.
