- Androgel for secondary hypogonadism
Severe swelling in legs, ankles and feet after being on my feet for more than one hour. Pain in calves and ankles. Feels like they're being squeezed or compressed. Pain dissipates after laying down for a few hours. Swelling never completely dissipates. Always some swelling in ankles.
- Migraine with dyazide
Took Dyazide for blood pressure escalating due to Cyclosporine. Have history of bad migraines but have not had them routinely for many years. Within 24 hours of starting treatment with Dyazide, severe headache began that lasted throughout the day and eventually led to ER treatment. Was told to no longer take Dyazide, headache did not return. Was 49 at time of ER treatment and was on Dyazide for 1 week.
- Tiredness on citalopram and cetirizine
Extreme tiredness......sleep more sleep and slight confusion when I wake...like a zombie mode switched on inside my head ...all I can do is yawn and sleep not good when your a busy mum
- Hair loss, no elevated mood or depression, nausea, tiredness (1 response)
Due to hair loss I switched over to Morphine. The hair loss goes on. While taking Tramadol for 5 month I've already lost 2/3 of my long and thick hair. In about 3 month I'll be bold - as a woman.
Tramadol elevated my mood. Morphine doesn't. It might even depress me - who knows? Taking 60mg at once I got visual disturbances for about one hour. I couldn't read, see clearly. The obstipation is worse. I fell very tired. The sleep isn't good but better than with Tramadol. On Tramadol I couldn't sleep at all.
I didn't see the problem with hair loss on the list, so I decided to do this review. It might be of use for s.o.
- Effexor xr 150 mg and phentermine 37.5 mg
phentermine has caused significant weight loss. Effexor XR manages my GAD and depression but causes random physiological anxiety attacks, drastic increase in sweating, vivid and nightly nightmares

For the first time in my life I couldn't care less if the twin towers blew up again I wouldn't care. I have been more calm and able to work in sales with less stress and more success.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I take two 10 MG tablets of Zyrtec per day for a total of 20 MG per day as directed by my allergist. I have also been on Prednisone although I have not taken that drug for a month. I have some swelling of my ankles and feet (plus weight gain) and am wondering if Zyrtec causes fluid retention.
