Hi my name is crystal I took my anxiety medicine, which is generic to Zoloft and I also took albuterol with it right after I took it. I was having blurred vision, racing heartbeat and tingling feeling all through out my body for hours. I finally came back home and I slept and woke up and now I am fine. Im just a little worried if Im going to be having any problems with anything.

My son is 11 yrs old. He used to be in the swimming team but once when he was in training, he felt chest pains and out of breath as well as a bit dizzy. The trainers let him lie down and he felt better and he was taken to the hospital for ECG and echodiagram. The results were normal. We also had him take the treadmill test. All tests are normal. After a few weeks, he went back to training and the same thing happened, we thought it must be because his traning is in the morning and maybe his blood sugar level is low. Nevertheless, we stopped his swimming trainings. Several weeks ago, we went on a vacation and after swimming in the beach for a while, he suddenly felt that his heart rate s very fast so i just asked him to lie down and rest. It went away but that night during dinner, he complained of fast heart beat again and had to lie down in the restaurant. I could feel his heartbeat when i put my hand on his chest. We were thinking, maybe he just lacked sleep cause he had been sleeping very late at nite and waking up real early the past few days. Just tonight, after dinner, he complained again of fast heart rate. Since we have a BP and pulse monitor at home, i checked him and got a heart rate of 124 on his left wrist and 195 pulse rate on his right. BP is 96/58 on his left and 105/62 on his right. He used to tell me too that sometimes he would feel that his heart rate would suddenly gets fast. Should we get some more test? Is this normal for a kid his age? Should he stop all forms of exercise and start eating a strict diet? He s 135cm tall and is around 35 kg in weight.

I`m a 33 year old male, 5' 10" currently 194. When I masturbate, right after ejaculation, I urinate automatically. I believe I may have been doing it for the last several years. But I`ve just realized it was not normal. I thought it may have been Retrograde Ejaculation. But I read somewhere else it wasn`t. I was born with Spina Bifida,( Myelomeningocele) and Hydrocephalus. I take Dilantin and Phenytek for Epilepsy. I also take Zoloft and Celexa for Anxiety,OCD and Depression. Thanks

It is the weekend and am concerned about blood pressure. Last 3 readings: 140/88, 133/106, 137/105. Also have pounding headache in back of skull and top of head like a throbbing migraine. Saw my primary in May. All blood tests and EKG normal. Was taking Lisinopril HCTZ 20/12.5. My concern was swollen ankles so Dr. switched me to Lisinopril tabs 20mg & Lasix 40mg. I have not felt well since the switch. I have been treated for HBP about 15 years, am 56 and do smoke. Last 2 days have taken Lisinopril twice a day and 1/2 Lasix. Dr. told me I could do that as long as I monitor myself. Have not had numbers in 100s for a long time. Other medications are Aciphex 20mg, trazodone 100mg, sertraline 150mg and the lisinopril 20mg & lasix. I just do not feel well and need some advice. I will call my dr. on Monday to discuss. Thank you.
