  • Is it alright to take l-arginine with thyroxine and ramipril
    ramipril and thyroxine is it ok with these drugs to take L-Arginine?
  • Does high uric acid increases erectile dysfunction
    I have been suffering from hypertension, diabetes. My doctor recently prescribed Olmesartan 20 mg after 2-3 months I checked and found my Uric Acid is more than 7.5 and had noticed that I have developed Erectile Dysfunction....Is this due to taking Olmesartan
  • Ok to take losartan and zoloft together before bed? (2 answers)
    I've been on Losartan for a year without any problem. Six weeks ago I started on 25mg of Zoloft for general anxiety. All of a sudden during cardio exercise I feel lightheadedness and a feeling like I could pass out! I stop for a moment and then I feel ok. Is this normal? I thought I'd be getting more used to it after 6 weeks, but this is something new so I figured that it is now in my body and fatigue is normal. Or perhaps taking bp meds and Zoloft might be the cause.
  • Does the thymus affect dysthymia
    joy of living is imparted to the child by the bonding process. the thymus helps in developing antibodies and setting up the immune system and its function lessens through puberty until it effectively atrophies at maturity. my thesis is that a lack of bonding interferes with the action of the thymus leading to dysthymia (Greek for bad state of mind), elsewhere described as 'chronic discontent

  • Fluoxetine with hypnagogic hallucinations
    Was taking fluoxetine until recently for a depressive episode (suffered from depression pretty much my whole life). Strange hypnagogic hallucinations and bizarre thoughts, sometimes coupled with feeling faint. Also strong feelings of numbness for the first two weeks or so, headaches and dry mouth. Strangely only on 20mg...This is my second time on fluoxetine and the experience has been totally different (last time it seemed to make me act callously and superficially towards people, and to be generally irresponsible, going out, avoiding work etc.).

    Doctor had now changed me over to sertraline, been on it for 3 days and ok so far apart from minor headaches.
  • Terrible excessive sweating from hydrochlorothiazide
    I guess I fit the profile of who gets excessive sweating from HCTZ. I am a 65 year old female and suffered from excessive sweating for two years. With just very little exertion, I would pour sweat from the top of my head. It would run into my face and all over my hair. My hair would be ringing wet. I had heavy perspiration in the groin area and down my back also. I had to change clothing 2-3 times a day and wash up or shower that many times also. The doctor tried changing my Cymbalta and put me on Wellbutrin instead. It did absolutely no good. I went off the wellbutrin and back onto the Cymbalta. I did some research and saw that HCTZ could cause excessive sweating. Both my doctor and my pharmacist said that they had never heard of that. I went off the HCTZ, and my sweating stopped almost immediately. My doctor and my pharmacist were very surprised. I'm one of those people who frequently have different reactions to drugs than are typical. If you're having excessive perspiration and are on HCTZ, try going off of it. It just may be the culprit!
  • Avapro back pain and other symptoms along the way.
    Been taking avapro for last 6 years and every now and then a weird symptom surfaces.
    In the begining it was tiredness no energy, then it was several near misses on the hiway because the drug interfered wih my brain/ vision, then unexplained bruising, mental fog,severe thirst,dry cough,not very good bp control, slows urination, and when my dosage was upped I now have middle back pain and front rightside pain ...not diagnosed yet but i feel my gallbladder is acting up.
  • The zoloft/vyvanse concoction ruined my life.
    I started taking these drugs about two months ago. I am diagnosed ADHD by a psychiatrist. I received these medications from a doctor whom I know and is married to a friend my wife. She, the doctor, gave them to me from her personal medications in a plastic baggy. I was given loose instructions for taking these on a piece of paper. I was never given the paperwork with warning signs. 10 days after starting these medications, I attacked my wife and am now separated. I am barred from seeing her and my daughter by means of a Victims Protective Order. I am a normally nonviolent person. Most who know me call me a peacemaker...a pacifist. I am still horrified by the events of that night. 15 seconds changed my life forever. I hope and pray my story helps others. Don't be naïve, as I was, when given medications. Ask questions.
  • Avoid lisinopril or any ace inhibitor
    This was the only drug I was taking other than low-dose aspirin 3x/week.
    Within 2 days I began coughing, as though something was deep in my lungs; became long severe coughing fits than threw out my back, sore all over. Then began runny nose, exhaustion, occasional mild chest pain. Not connecting the dots, after a month of this I returned to my dr., who prescribed an antibiotic and inhaler, saying I had asthma! After a week starting feeling worse, sore throat and sore lungs from coughing, in bed from exhaustion.
    After reading on-line about identical symptoms from LISINOPRIL, I immediately stopped it; now, 2 weeks later I am beginning to feel better -- cough much better. I am hoping I will be one of the lucky ones who does not have the cough continue. By the way, this drug reduced my bp from 140/100 to 110/80 BUT I'd rather have high bp than take this poison.
    Now I learn than many deaths have resulted from use of Lisinopril. Had this drug caused my death, no one would know my story as I have no relatives to tell it; am assuming many unreported have died and of course are not able to go on-line and tell their story post-death!
    All I can do is ask WHY is this drug allowed to be sold -- even stranger, in my case the drugstore is giving this poison away at no charge -- a first; but WHY?

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • The heart symptoms began around 4 months ago after an increase in Levothyroxine. I also was not able to continue seasonal allergy shots and began taking chlorpheniramine. I have tried many different antihistamines, all of which have caused various uncomfortable symptoms,
