Experience nosebleed after second injection of Premarin. Will cautiously monitor and try again. It occurred off and on lightly for much of the day. I never get nosebleeds
- 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.

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

It was a three day dosage by life brand. Every morning after taking it I would wake up with a bloody nose. Nothing severe but there was blood. When I didn't take it again, there was no bloody nose when I woke up.

Comments from related studies:
From this study (9 months ago):
I've been taking Flonase and zyrtec together for about a month. Last night I developed a stiff neck. I haven't done any strenuous exercise or injured it. The pain is coming from the back of my head, bottom of my skull and behind the ears. I was wondering if this could be a drug related reaction.
From this study (5 years ago):
I have been taking 24-hour Zyrtec for 14 years (daily) and due to a recent sinus infection, had to stop taking it to let my sinuses drain. Stayed off the medication for three weeks. I'm back on it again and experiencing some abnormal effects. My hands are aching and sometimes have a burning sensation. It feels like I have a hard time focusing my eyes, or when I do focus, I feel dizzy. This mainly occurs with things I'm looking at up close. I've had nightsweats since I can remember (I'm 27) and lately they have gotten really bad--every night I end up drenched. Could the drug have completely left my system and now I'm having side effects from starting up again? I've missed taking a Zyrtec here and there (once every two+ months) since starting the drug when I was 13, but never had any effects except my allergies and athsma acting up. I'm also concerned becuase I was taking the drug while my body/brain was still developing...could that have caused any effects?
