  • From this study (2 days ago):

  • I have had severe loss/thinning of hair over this last year, and it seems to be getting worse over the last 6 months. I lose an inordinate amount of hair whenever I brush, comb, or shampoo my hair.

  • From this study (2 days ago):

  • I had severe swelling of my eyes on an irregular basis beginning September 2013. I saw my allergy doctor, and she diagnosed it as angioedema and prescribed 4 10mg of cetirizine hydrochloride per day. At that time I was taking amlodipine besylate for high blood pressure. I have seen the allergy doctor several times since September, but my blood pressure has continued to go up. I asked her if the cetirizine could be causing this and she said "no". I am concerned because I only have one kidney, have a history of Hep C and some diminished liver function due to the Hep C (it's been in remission for about six years).
