Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Could smoking marijuana once cause retinal detachment? after smoking a small amount of mj, my retina detached and i ended up having emergency surgery to mend it.
I had had laser surgery, cataract surgery much earlier--all successful. Members of my family have glaucoma and so do I. After hearing that marijuana might ease the glaucoma, I smoked one time. That night, my retina began to detach. Is there any causal relationship between the marijuana and the retinal detachment?
- Does latanoprost cause higher blood pressue when using it?
I currently have and am being treated for high blood pressure. After I recently started Latanoprost, my blood pressure has risen. Has anyone had a similar reaction? Thanks.
- Does xalatan cause my severe joint pain ,stiffness, heavy legs and brain fog (1 answer)
i was diagnosed with glaucoma approx 20 years ago 12 months after eye injury with squash ball and have been on xalatan ever since,for most of this time i have suffered joint pain and concentration problems,the last 4 years has seen this pain in the joints ie.lower back,hips, shoulders, elbows, knees, hands ,heaviness in the legs and stiffness in all joints get worse, i exercise and walk every day ,play golf twice a week and i take no other drug other than xalatan what so ever.i am currently having massage ,cupping and acupuncture once a week to keep me mobile and this is proving to be quite expensive. i am 64 years of age and as active as i can be. i do realise that i have some osteo arthritus but this pain is far beyond that and i certainly won'nt believe as was suggested to me ,that this pain comes with age, so live with it .
- I use combigan, azopt and xalatan is there an order i should put them in?
I use 3 eye drops - 2 other them twice a day and the xalatan once a day but One doctor has told me to put the xalatan in first thing in the morning then wait half an hour before putting the other two in. Now the pharmacist has advised that I put the other two drops in first thing in the morning then again at tea time but to use the xalatan last thing at night. which one is right?
- My mom used xalantan for her glaucoma and within two days of using this product, she had a seizure. can xalatan cause seizures? (1 answer)
