My husband’s blood pressure had always been high - but in November 2020 he was prescribed Losartan after a trip to the hospital. He had been prescribed prednisone shortly before for sinusitis.
Since then he’s developed intrusive thoughts and low mood. A second course of prednisone, antibiotics, and setraline. He didn’t sleep for 4 days and couldn’t eat. He stopped all medication and consulted his GP who was frankly rude - she stated none of his side effects were due to medication and it was all anxiety related despite him having practically every side effect listed (we read the side effects after he developed them). Most concerning for me has been the burning in his penis when peeing (potassium?)
He may also have thrush but can’t take fluconazole as it’s contraindicated.
He started amlodipine 5mgs 4 days ago - he was up all night last night with headache and is itching everywhere. He is so anxious and fed up - he’s started citalopram today.
I’m now at my wits end.
I want my husband back.
