17 Possible Causes for Drug-induced Diarrhea, Flattened T Wave

  • Quinidine

    T waves (without dysrhythmia), have occurred frequently and hypotension and ventricular tachycardia have occurred occasionally in patients receiving IV quinidine gluconate[] They usually appeared within the first month and in all instances resolved with drug discontinuation. As expected, diarrhea was an important side effect.[] […] measures may be required. b While substantial cardiovascular toxicity generally has not occurred, ECG changes, including prolonged QT interval, widened QRS complex, and flattened[]

  • Digitalis Toxicity

    Electrocardiographic signs of digitalis toxicity include first-degree atrioventricular (A-V) block with depressed S-T segments, shortened Q-T intervals, and flattened T waves[]

  • Digoxin

    , inverted, or biphasic T waves .[] . - Flattened, negative or biphasic T waves. - QT interval shortening. - U wave amplitude may increase.[] […] demonstrating the Digoxin Effect Digoxin effect refers to the presence on the ECG of: Downsloping ST depression with a characteristic “Salvador Dali sagging” appearance Flattened[]

  • Hypokalemia

    […] than the T wave. flattening of the T wave.[] Potassium-wasting diuretics that block sodium reabsorption proximal to the distal nephron include Thiazide diuretics Loop diuretics Osmotic diuretics By inducing diarrhea,[] T wave of the electrocardiogram, and muscle weakness.[]

  • Laxative Abuse

    ECG revealed sinus rhythm with a left axis deviation, T-wave flattening but no U waves. Renal ultrasound showed normal sized kidneys with no evidence of hydronephrosis.[] Drug-induced, factitious, & idiopathic diarrhoea. Best Pract Res Clin Gastroenterol. 2012;26(5):633–648. Fine KD, Santa Ana CA, Fordtran JS. Diagnosi...[] Algorithm: Diarrhea, Chronic 305.90 Other, mixed, or unspecified drug abuse, unspecified use 280982009 Abuse of laxatives (disorder) 27051000119102 Chronic abuse of laxatives[]

  • Electrolyte Imbalance

    Clinical signs of hyperkalaemia include muscle weakness, hypotension , bradycardia and loss of cardiac output, and ECG changes may include peaked T waves and flattened P waves[] (diuretics, digitalis, corticosteriods), increased secretion of aldosterone, Cushing's syndrome, diarrhea, vomiting, wound drainage, prolonged nasogastric suction, heat-induced[] […] storage - Lasix, which is a diuretic, can cause potassium to be excreted out through urine; CHECK POTASSIUM LEVELS BEFORE GIVING - - Causes: inappropriate or excessive use of drugs[]

  • Quinine

    wave flattening.[] Cardiac disorders Atrioventricular conduction disturbances, a fall in blood pressure coupled with a feeble pulse, prolongation of the QT interval, widening of the QRS complex, T[]

  • Hypomagnesemia

    t-waves, C hvostek’s sign (positive which goes along with hypocalcemia) H ypertension, h yperreflexia I nvoluntary movements N ausea G I issues (decreased bowel sounds and[] As large oral amounts of magnesium may induce severe diarrhea and noncompliance in some patients, parenteral magnesium administration must sometimes be considered.[] Characteristic ECG changes include progressive QRS complex widening, PR interval prolongation, and flattened T waves.[]

  • Drug-induced Hypokalemia

    Diagnostic Test Results-Diagnostic Procedures Characteristic electrocardiogram changes may be seen, including flattened T wave and depressed ST segment and U wave.[] Hence, drug-induced hypokalemia was suspected in our patient.[] Therefore, although ECG changes should trigger urgent treatment, treatment decisions should not be based solely on the presence or absence of ECG changes. 32 Peaked T waves[]

  • Hypokalemic Nephropathy

    waves flattened/absent P waves QRS widening sine waves this can be treated with loop diuretics to increase urinary K excretion should also restrict dietary K and hyperkalemic[] , starvation, milk-alkali syndrome, drug-induced potassium losses, hyperaldosteronism, hyperreninemia, Bartter, Gitelman's and Liddle syndromes and thyrotoxicosis were ruled[] Findings such as T-wave flattening or prominent U waves will result in hospital admission. [3] Other tests may include: arterial blood gas basic or comprehensive metabolic[]
