  • Have you been crippled, leg calf muscle area, by welchol?
    Sudden onset of crippling pain in knee/upper area of right leg. First had a severe stabbing pain in upper part of calf right under the bend in the knee. Could not stand, put weight on the right leg. Severe pain if I put my big toe on the ground! 9 days later, the pain has not diminished but can stand on leg to walk a little.

  • Drug interactions with gilizide, metformin, lisinopril and welchol (1 answer)
    I have been on Janumet , lisinopril and simvastatin. Dr. Replaced simvastatin with Welchol due to muscle pains. We also switched from Janumet back to just Metformin since glipizide was helping so much. Pharmacist said not to take Welchol at the same time as the others due to binding. I take the others at breakfast and supper. So when is the best time to take the Welchol? Dr. Said I can take it at night but it needs to taken with food.

  • Triglyceride elevated cause by medication
    I've been taking above @ 1 yr or less. Cholesterol has gone up--still no energy--now my TRIGLYCERIDE (blood test) has gone up to over 700. Asked for new test told No have another rd for you (do not know name haven't tried yet).



    Dr. said TRI.... were high before. Yes 2010 in range of @250-300 (I don't remember).



    Welchol taking 625mg. 6 pills/day. = 3750mg/ day

    Synthroid 0.088. 1/day



    Quest is....CAN THESE RX MAKE TRIGLYCERIDE sky rocket?

    Thanks

  • Cymbalta side effects
    Cymbalta was prescribed in Sep. for pain associated with a total knee replacement which was done in Feb. During a yearly physical exam in April my AST and ALT numbers were 21 and 24. After taking Cymbalta for six days in September I noticed dark urine and immediately quit the Cymbalta. Labs done three days later showed my AST had risen to 569 and my ALT was 939. I saw a specialist and had labs done 10 days after stopping Cymbalta and my AST dropped to 27 and my ALT to 155. I will have them done again in three months. There is no doubt in my mind that Cymbalta was the culprit as all other meds, diet, etc. remained the same throughout this time frame.
