Question: I am on dyazide for a blood pressure medication. My face is peeling (like a sunburn). This is unusual for me. I am also on warfarin. Is the peeling due to the dyaside or a drug interaction?

Brief Answer:
Is not typical for medications

Detailed Answer:
Dear Mrs,

It is a neither a common side effect for thiazide nor a drug interaction between your medications.
In some people thiazides can cause skin dryness, but peeling is not typical.
I would advise you to see a dermatologist to find out the cause of your skin peeling.

Take care

I was just diagnosed with CIN3 and I have PMDD, Endometriosis, Protein S deficiency and antiphospholipid antibody syndrome. I am 37 with 2 healthy children. I currently take Lexapro, monophasic birth control, Warfarin, and aspirin. The doctor first suggested a LEEP, although knowing I am finished having children and that fact that I need to come off the blood thinner for every procedure suggested I may want to have a hysterectomy taking out only one ovary, the uterus and the cervix because she said I cannot take HRT due to my blood coagulation issues. The only thing that has kept my PMDD in check over the years has been birth control. I tried several times going off the B.C. and each time I ended up bat shit crazy (excuse the language but it describes it perfectly)! My gynecologist also told me I can t be on birth control anymore for the same reasons (coagulation factors). With my blood being controlled with warfarin and a stable INR why would there be any more risk or liability prescribing me birth control? I feel like I would rather eventually die from Cervical Cancer than be a mentally unstable woman for the rest of my life. I m sure I ultimately don t mean that, but that s how afraid I am of my own hormones when they are unbalanced. I m not afraid of cancer but I am afraid of PMDD. PLEASE help me figure something out:-)

My 65 year old wife is taking Fluticasone as an inhaler and Montelukast which were prescribed for a chronic mild but somewhat annoying cough, and Hypertension, respectively. She is now experiencing frequent bouts of diarrhea, and shortness of breath and what feels like her heart is pounding with sweating upon what is otherwise normal activity physical activity. She is also taking Xaralto for A-Fib and has discontinued Warfarin as per the Doctor s orders. We were thinking about discontinuing the Fluticasone to see if the diarrhea is relieved but were uncertain due the drug being a corticosteroid. She also since childhood has a history of Positive TB Test without presenting any symptoms. Is it unsafe for her to discontinue the use of Fluticasone?

Hi...I am on warfarin now temporarily following a right THR. My last INR last thursday was 1.6 and I have been taking 5 mg nightly since then. I used both Udo s Oil and ground flaxseed this morning on my cottage cheese and fruit...what was I thinking?! Just was trying to work in a little natural fiber etc. Anyway, I assume this is not recommended w warfarin...I won t do it again as long as I am on warfarin. My I have anything to be concerned about today? Should I skip eating the salmon I was going to cook tonight? (no big deal...can use tomorrow). Thanks so much for advice.....
