I am 49 years old male (weight around 61 kgs.) staying in the city of chennai, south india. I am a pure vegetarian. I am a glaucoma patient since 1983, when first diagnosed. I lost vision in my right eye by the time of diagnosis. Since 1983 I am using timolol maleate 0.5% eye drops twice daily for both my eyes and from the year 2001 my doctor suggested me in addition to timolol maleate to instill latanoprost for my left (has almost normal vision) eye at bed time to prevent any further damage. Now regular monitoring shows iop as very normal. Now my problem is not relating to eyes, but the timolol maleate I am using for past 32 years. As far as I could get information from the internet timolol maleate is beta-blocker and for the past 3 years my ldl & vldl levels are on the rise and hdl on the lower side for unknown reason though there is no major change in total cholesterol. I am not a diabetic (regularly monitored) nor hypertensive. Family doctor suggests to take drugs for the abnormal lipid profile. The other symptoms I am facing for the past 2 months are (1) total fatigue, (2) frequent cold with nasal discharge, (3) drowsiness, (4) shallow breath, (5) ringing sound in ears etc. I just wanted to know whether these symptoms are due to prolonged use of beta-blocker (timolol maleate eye drops), so that I can place before my ophthalmologist your observation and prevent any other future complications.Please tell.

These symptoms are unlikely to be caused by timolol maleate eye drops. It should not be used in cardiac or respiratory condition. Beside regular iop check get periodical glaucoma field examn. Your eye surgeon can monitor the optic disc cupping by funds exam. As you have only one eye on working condition. These tests should be done regularly to monitor the efficacy of the eye drops and at the same time keeping in mind about progression.

Hello- acid reflux during fasting might be due to latent hyper acidity. >try these tips- 1) take harad powder at bed time. 2) apply coconut oil around your umbilicus twice daily. 3) drink cold sweet milk when you break your fast at night time. 4) figs and black raisins decrease acidity so you can take them in your meals.

Hello. If the cough is due to an allergy then of course, you can take it for few days. Apart from Cetrizine, there are anti-allergic homoeopatic medicines which works wonderfully and are very safe to take! You can take Aspidosperma Q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water/ thrice daily for 4 weeks. Then revert back.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Sinusitis is an inflammation, or swelling, of the tissue lining the sinuses. Normally, sinuses are filled with air, but when sinuses become blocked and filled with fluid, germs (bacteria, viruses, and fungi) can grow and cause an infection.Conditions that can cause sinus blockage include the common cold, allergic rhinitis, nasal polyps or a deviated septum. Chronic sinusitis is a condition characterized by sinus inflammation symptoms lasting 8 weeks or longer. May be you are suffering from nasal polyps or DNS. please mention your symptoms so that treatment can be prescribed.

The easiest way is to consciously avoid dusty areas. A more practical way is to come to a schedule of anti-allergic medication to control the allergies.

Hi lybrate-user immunity has a lot to do with rest diet, exercise and lifestyle. If you have repeated or persistent cold it may actually be allergic rather than infection. If due to ideation and you need to bolster your immunity Start have plenty of fruits and vegetables in your diet. A course of vitamin B complex and C for 1 month. Add a probiotic supplement to your regular meals. Have sleep for atleast 7 to 8 hours. Exercise atleast for 30 minutes every day. For Allergy Steam inhalation  twice a day. To avoid allergic stimuli like dust, pollens. *Steroid nasal  sprays may be needed for a prolonged duration Get a Complete blood count with ESR, and AEC done. CT PNS if repeated symptoms may be needed. Share report on Lybrate. Then I can help you more. Hope this helps

Hi throat pain can also be due to reflux. Reflux can sometimes cause ear pain also. Treating reflux is the only solution if there is no infective pathology seen inthe throat.

1. Do steam inhalation 2-3 times daily with karvol plus inhalant capsule 2. Put otrivin nasal drop one thrice daily 3. Take a course of antibiotic after consulting doctor 4. If you are suffering from chronic sinusitis, take plain xray pns/ct scan of pns or nasal endoscopy after consulting ent specialist to confirm diagnosis 5. If you are having recurrent symptoms, you may have to undergo endoscopic sinus surgery.
