  • Take low dose aspirin daily. have gained 35# in 2 yrs. also cortef 5 mg daily. tapering off cortef, but could weight gain be an aspirin side effect? (1 answer)
    Weight in 2010 = 148#. Blood clot 2010 - take small dose aspirin per day. Weight Sept 12, 2013=175#. In addition to aspirin take 5 mg Cortef for adrenal insufficiency (am in process of tapering down the Cortef). Armoir thyroid, flexerel , BP meds as needed. Discontinued Prozac June 2013. I am taking steps to figure out why I just keep gaining weight. I know that cortef being a steroid could be causing gain, but today I read that my low dose aspirin could cause weight gain. Could it be both? What alternative to aspirin, since I sure don't want another blood clot.

    Hope someone can help me figure this out. Thanks,

  • How long does it take for your vision to get back to normal after being blurry from evista
    I have been taking Evista for 3 years. Last year and this year my vision has not been the same. Blurry especially hard when driving. I went to the eye doctor 3 times last year and he changed my prescription 3 times. I just settled for the last prescription. I still have a hard time when driving. I use eye drops all the time. The artificial tears type, not visine. I also have had very achy legs for the last 2 years. I am now looking up side effects to my medicines and finding out about the side effects of Evista. If any of you have had these problems from Evista it will help me make the decision to discuss this with my doctor this next visit.
  • I have cerebral aneurysms. can midodrine increase risk of rupture
    I have been diagnosed with FMD, I had brain surgery to clip a Left carotid aneurysm because my arteries are so full of beading from FMD that a coil was not safe. The aneurysm on my right carotid is (as of now) inoperable, and is held in place with a piece of muslin. The FMD also dissected my right vertebral artery. I taks 325mg of aspirin a day, though contraindicated with aneurysms (if it ruptures I bleed out), I take it to prevent more damage to my arteries and the formation of more aneurysms. My blood pressure is in the toilet. One dr thought it was Shy-Drager syndrome, but most think it is related to the vertebral artery. The tilt table test showed a b/p of 41/31. My doctor just started me on midodrine. However I have concerns because it's action is to constrict arteries, I already have plenty of constriction with beading throughout the arteries. I expressed my concerns to the neurologist and she said there is NO risk of an aneurysm bleed. A stroke? Maybe. I took one 2.5mg dose and fell off of my bicycle. I am trying to find the risk of taking midodrine with FMD, aneurysm, or both
  • Does smoking marijuana while being treated for periperal artery disease worsen the disease?
    I've had two bi-femoral bypass grafts that have failed due to over-healing. I have a stent in my left leg and the right leg has had to find it's own blood flow as a stent couldn't be introduced. I have burning pain in my toes in the right leg. It is like the pain I had when my toes turned black 3 years ago and I discovered I had PAD. I quit smoking cigarettes immediately
  • Why am i nauseous and giddy in mornings only?
    aspirin 81mg

    oxybutanin 15 mg
  • I took keppra for seizure disorder and developed a severe rash with blisters, peeling skin, redness, fever.
    On April 1st I blacked out suddenly while driving my car.The neurologist said I had a seizure disorder according to findings on my EEG. Little information was given, but a prescription for 1 gram of Keppra per day was given. Immediately I became ill after taking the Keppra...nausea, vomiting, chills, fever, weakness. After two weeks of being ill I stopped taking the drug. Gradually,I felt better.About 2.5 weeks after stopping the drug I developed a very red rash with blisters, itching, and it looked like I had been scalded.My skin peeled. Fever returned. I went to the ER in a small community and was told it was a YEAST infection.I knew this was not right and went to a major teaching hospital where I was treated for Stevens-Johnson Syndrome. I am now having kidney function issues. I've had Polycythemia vera for 11 years.It is a rare,incurable cancer,but I have had excellent care.Because this neurologist did not review my drug list or allergies and cancer treatment, I suffered and will have to deal with the consequences of his lack of attention to someone who is already chronically ill. If he had looked at my drug allergies he would have seen Lamectil on the list, too. I've wondered if this will shorten my life.
