Blood Pressure Overview

Blood pressure (BP), sometimes referred to as arterial blood pressure, is the pressure exerted by circulating blood upon the walls of blood vessels, and is one of the principal vital signs. When used without further specification, "blood pressure" usually refers to the arterial pressure of the systemic circulation. During each heartbeat, blood pressure varies between a maximum (systolic) and a minimum (diastolic) pressure.[1] The blood pressure in the circulation is principally due to the pum...

losartan htcz -ankle pain
Since I became allergic to lisinopril, I've been taking 1 losartan hydrochlorothiazide 100-12.5 daily for 2 yrs. for blood pressure. When in FL for the winter, the pill was a different size, assume mfg. by different company, and ankles didn't hurt. In NY, I get the same drug, a bit different sized, and now my ankles ache and perhaps a very small swelling on outside ankle bone. Is it possible that the NY pills cause this while the FL pills don't? ## Since I became allergic to lisinopril, I've been taking 1 losartan hydrochlorothiazide 100-12.5 daily for 2 yrs. for blood pressure.

Amlong 10 Dosage
amlong is to be taken at what time ( before meal or after meal ) is amlong 10 safe for the type 2 diabetic patients ## Amlong contains the active ingredient Amlodipine, which is a calcium channel blocker that's most commonly used to treat high blood pressure. Learn more Amlodipine details here. It is commonly prescribed for diabetic patients, since they often develop high blood pressure.

Some people do experience some nausea and stomach irritation, so they must take it after eating, but you can do whichever works best for you. Are there any other questions I can help with? ## As advised, at present I am taking Loser-H, Arkamin in the morning and Amlog-10 in afternoon after lunch due to High Blood...

CARDACE H 5
ANY SIDE AFFECT ## After gathering information on Cardace, I found that may be linked to Ramipril, and could possibly be one in the same pill; for its uses for treating hypertension, congestive heart failure, prevention of myocardial infarction, stroke, and cardiovascular death in patients over age 55. The following are side effects of Ramipril; as I believe Ramipril is the generic name for Cardace: A possible swelling of the mouth, tongue, or throat. A low blood sugar level in patients taking other medicine for diabetes which physically shows as sweating or shakiness. Furthermore, dry cough may develop, along with dizziness, and light-headedness due to low blood pressure. Decreased sex drive. Tiredness and fatigue. and mouth dryness. To view a more detailed description of Ramipril, ple...

Losartan HCTZ 50-12.5
I have been on it for 2 months and the side effects have been awful. I couldn't stand it any more. I stopped taking it last Wednesday. It's been 5 days. I now have swollen ankles. Is this something to worry about? What is the risk of stopping and how long does it take to get it out of your system? ## Hello, Lindyann! How are you? Yes, you shouldn't have stopped it abruptly, because that can cause a rebound effect, such as what you're experiencing with the edema. You may also have dangerously elevated blood pressure. Please consult your doctor as soon as possible to have things checked out for your own safety. You may require medical treatment and will need to try a different blood pressure medication. Are there any other questions or concerns?

Decilone Forte 4 mg tablet
Hi, i been having this pain in my arm and joint in my shoulder, and im gone for a kiropractor and they used shock wave but that doesn't work. is it possible if i will try Decilone forte 4 mg ? ## Hello, Rebecca! How are you? This medication is a steroid, so it shouldn't be taken, unless your doctor says that it is safe for you to take it. It will not alleviate pain, it just helps with any possible swelling that may be present and it risks some serious side effects, such as facial bloating, fluid retention and hypertension. Is there anything else I can help with?

co pritor side effects - upper gum pain
I am 61 and are using co pritor 80mg & Fedeloc for the hypertension and I have constant pain at my right hand side upper gum and it triggers pain. My dentist indicated that it can be sinus, and another opinion from a professor of a Dental Faculty say that according to x-rays there is nothing wrong with the gum. Can this medication be the reason for my gum pain. ## Hello, Abe! How are you? No, pain from these medications would be more prone to being generalized body aches or headaches, not centralized to just a small area like that. Have you consulted an ENT? They may be able to discover what's going on. How long has it been occurring? Do you take any other medications? Do you have an allergies that you know of?

Coveram 5mg
I am 57 and have been taking coveram 5mg for 6 months. About 4 months ago my face started looking like it was permanently sunburnt. My doctor has taken me off it and put me on Coversyl 10mg. Will my face return to its normal colour and if so how long will it take? ## Hello, Annalise! How are you? It depends on what caused the facial flushing. How high is your blood pressure? High blood pressure can cause that in some people and if that's what caused it, it may linger. If it was due to the medication, then it should only take a few weeks for things to return to normal. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi Verwon Thanks for your reply. My blood pressure was normal whilst taking the Coveram. I have been taking a different bp medication for the last month and the redness has go...
