Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • I have had severe bone, muscle, joint pain in shoulders, knees, and hips all over actually. In the past 3 months I have began taking additional Magnesium through a tablet from Jigsaw company called Magnesium w/srt. Includes 5 mg Vit. B6 as pyrodoxal-5-Phophate 5 mg, folate, dimagasium Malate 500mg, Malic Acid 1550mg.
    this has greatly helped with the inability to relax muscles for the past 4 years, yeah, very painful especially in my shoulders. So I believe that the priolec and the HCT in the Benicar HCT, depleated my magnesium in my system. I did not have a blood test for magnesium before taking it for a few months,but did have a magnesium blood test recently and showed normal levels but lower level of potassium, took dr. recommended potassium script and done with that now. Now that I don't have sever muscle constriction after the magnesium I do still suffer severe joint and bone pain with no reason that I can see as to why it comes on or why it stops. I can go for maybe 3 weeks with no pain and then for 2 week have the severe pain or maybe sometimes pain but maybe the edge is off the top a bit. I believe this is related to tollerance of Lorazapam building up. I take the Lorazapam for sleep but it also acts as a bit of a relaxer for my shoulder muscles and sometimes my knee and hip pain will subside. Sometime it works for that better than other times. So let me know what you think. I do know that this when I have the pain, I can't seem to think clearly, I get aggitated to noise, grumpy, need quiet place and try to sleep if I can.

    Female 38 I started taking benicar over 6 months ago and recently I have been suffering with severe shoulder, neck and knee pain during the night when sleeping. Its a pain that wakes me up, it feels as if my knees are being crushed. This just started 1 week ago.


  • From this study (12 months ago):

  • Taken Lactaid couple times in the past. Last 2 times developed gas, bloating, stomach pain 1-2 hours after taking lactaid. After 6 hours developed severe all over body itching. Still itching 24 hours later.


  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • All checked side effects started the day after taking Trazodone and have continued for last few days. Severity of all side effects are new and do not think they are related to conditions of fibromyalgia, PTSD, anxiety and depression. I've never been in such a confused mental state and been so sluggish until starting Trazodone.
