Hi Grampy,

I'm so sorry that I MISSED your post when you first posted!!!   Please forgive me  :(

Grampy -  I'm so sorry that you are having this reaction to your meds OR whatever is causing this problem.  What a miserable thing to have to go through.

I take 3 different meds for my heart - Lotrel, Hydrochlorathiazide and  Plavix and I haven't ever noticed any problems like that.

That said - it DOESN'T mean that you haven't had a reaction to yours.  Are these NEW meds that you haven't taken before?  If  you continue to have these problems, you need to check with your Cardiologist or PCP or whoever prescribed you these meds and see what they might say.

You know what Grampy?  Why don't you call your Pharmacist and ask them if there is any medication OR combination of medicine that you are on that might cause you these problems.  They are the MOST knowledgeable when it comes to the interaction and the side-effects of the meds that you are prescribed.

Please let us know what you can find out.  I'd REALLY like to know the answer to this one.  :)..

Hope that you are doing alright other than this problem that you are having....Sherry  :)

Hi Grampy,

What kind of medication are you taking?  Some are know to have diarrhea as a side effect. Does it list that on the label of your RX bottle?

Our systems handles drugs in it's own unique manner. What will bother me may not bother you and visea versa.

If it is extreme be sure and contact your PCP. It's important that you do not become dehydrated, especially if you have heart problems.

As Sherry suggested you can contact your pharmacist. Your problem may be from the combination of several drugs rather than just one. But a pharmacist is a good and often over-looked resource. He/she can offer you better information of medications and may have some suggestions for you.

Please let us know how you are doing.

Take Care,
