What are the side effects of anemia?

What are the side effects of anemia?

Many: Feeling tired, exercise intolerance, rapid pulse, high systolic and low diastolic blood pressure, pallor, fatigue, "depression", being called "lazy". The greatest danger is missing a treatable cause, and unless you are very poorly nourished or on a charlatan's diet there's some medical cause for every new anemia.

Any side effects to iron supplements? I have anemia & am starting 60mg of a slow release tablet of iron tonight. Anything I should know before taking?

Constipation and...: Iron supplements often cause constipation and will turn your stool black. They can also cause stomach upset and occ. Diarrhea and cramping- these tend to lessen over time. But they are usually well-tolerated. Taking vit. C with them improves absorption. The best-absorbed form of iron is actually iron bis-glycinate so you might want to try that form. ...Read more

My mom is 51 has factor 5, varicose veins and anemia as well as hormonal imbalance. Can she take GABA supplement? And what are the side effects?

GABA supplement?: I don't know what "gaba supplement" is. And no one likely does -- that is it isn't regulated so it can be anything. I would not suggest putting things in your mouth that you don't know the composition of. If you look at my background you'll see i've published on the gaba receptor. Alcohol and anti-anxiety drugs effect it amonst other substances. Recseeing a physician to deal the problem list. ...Read more

Doctors, what are the side effects of yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol)?

Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol): The FDA makes most contraceptive makers list a huge number of side effects. There are too many to list them in this answer.

What are the side effects of Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) birth control pill in treating pcos and acne? In dilemma as to whether I should start or not.

Clotting and emboli: Acne develops after one has periods because of hormonally induced changes to the skin with more oils. Taking birth control pills helps to regulate this and can decrease acne. But even low dose estrogen birth control pills increases the risk of deep venous clots (DVT) and can risk the emboli to the lungs. A family history of clots is a contraindication. Hydration decreases risks of forming clots. ...Read more

What are the side effects of coming off Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) and how long do they last?

What are the side effects of coming off Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) and how long do they last?

Not much: There shouldn't be much in the way of side effects at all coming off yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol). The only thing that would be common may be some irregular cycles for 1-2 months. But keep in mind that most women have lighter, shorter and less painful periods while on pills. So those symptoms may increase gradually after being off for a few months. Also bcps suppress acne. That may come back too if the pills were helping. ...Read more

What are the possible side effects of switching from yaz to yasmin? Being it's .02 to .03 mg of estrogen? Will my cycles and acne be better or worse?

What are the possible side effects of switching from yaz to yasmin? Being it's .02 to .03 mg of estrogen? Will my cycles and acne be better or worse?

0.02 t0 0.03 mg Est: If anything is noticed, is should be that the higher estrogen level will allow for less facial acne. It may only improve the acne and not "cure it". Make certain to take the Yasmin the same time (within the hour of the day before) so that the level of estrogen in your system is constant. Taking the bcp at odd hours in low dose types like Yas or Yasmin is, can cause variations which cause acne. ...Read more

What are the side effects of a merina iud dose it make you put on weight and could it cause low libido as the yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) pill did for me?

What are the side effects of a merina iud dose it make you put on weight and could it cause low libido  as the yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) pill did for me?

Weight gain - yes: Change in libido- maybe. The Merina IUD contains progestin only, whereas Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) has a combination of estrogen and progestin, so effect may be slightly different. Overall reports suggest that the libido is affected less by Merina compared to combination BCP, but side effects are reported to improve after 6 months. Advantages of IUD: excellent contraceptive effect and no need to take daily med. ...Read more
