List Of Things Not To Take With Lisinopril
20 Replies RSS
What is not allowed while taking lisinopril; food, drugs or drinks. ## Lisinopril is an ACE inhibitor, that is most commonly used to treat high blood pressure. If you are being treated for high blood pressure, you should be informed to avoid food or beverage products that contain real licorice or licorice extract, since it can raise blood pressure. The only food/beverage interaction is that you should watch out for items that contain very high levels of potassium. Getting to much potassium, while taking Lisinopril can lead to Hyperkalemia, which can be a dangerous condition. Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, headache and stomach pain.

About 6 months ago I sadly went to walmarts 60 mg inderal tablets to save as I am struggeling instead of my regular inderal 60 mg capsule LA that I have been taking most my life, but the past few months the optical migrains were happening every few days instead of say once a month or so.

Post a Reply
Hi, I was diagnosed with boarder line long qt, a couple of years ago and was taking 50mg of noten once a day, but now I've fallen pregnant, I was changed to metropolo 25gm twice a day. I have had pretty bad morning sickness where I'm nauses in morning and dizzy all day, I don't come good to around 4 pm in the after noon. I had my blood pressure taken with a mid wife and my blood pressure was 100/ 45, which she said was very low!!! Im not sure if it is the medication or the morning sickness? My heart specialist is on leave, so I can't talk to him about it? Should maybe I only take 25gm a day instead of twice a day? Thank you kindly regards louise.

Hi there. I have been using 0.5 alzam and 10mg pur bloka for 12yrs.I suffer with high blood pressure 165/110 usually. In the beginning I used 2 alzam a day but Dr said 4 alzam a day and 2 per bloka.I suffer bad with anxiety. It gets so bad I turn to alcohol but then the next day I feel sooo sick, break out in sweats, heart palpitations and high blood pressure then keep wanting to have bad attacks that I take up to 6alzam but doesn't help. Vould anything bad happen to me? ## Hello, Charmain! How are you doing? Alcohol is actually a depressant, so it's just going to cause more anxiety, especially if you're drinking so much that you're suffering from a hangover the next day. It's also cardiotoxic, which could be why you're suffering the palpitations and high blood p...

i have stopped taking propranolol 80mg 3days ago and would like to know if there is any side effects coming off them ## I had problems just stopping cold turky after one doctor told me it would be ok, i felt panicky and anxious. Another doctor said to reduce the dose slowly over time or i will get withdrawal syptoms, One day on, one day off (2 weeks)then one day on two days off (2 weeks) so on, i still had problems and had to do it over the space of months. I am now down to one morning dose a day and ready to stop completely (after 6 months) and am feeling ok ## Any drug or substance that you take into your body for a prolonged period of time will cause some mild withdrawal symptoms if you abruptly stop using it, even if they don't consider it addictive.

Believe this is Mylan Metropolol succinate ER 25 mg. Was this part of the recalled Mylan Metropolol succinate ER that was recalled? ## Hello, Michelle! How are you? Yes, this is listed in the databases as containing 25mgs of Metoprolol in an extended release formulation. According to the FDA, this medication is a beta blocker that's most commonly used to treat high blood pressure and certain cardiac conditions. Possible side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, hypotension, stomach pain and increased urination. As to whether or not it was part of a recall, there's no way to be sure, without knowing how old the tablet is, or what lot it came from. Do you still have the pharmacy bottle? If so, that should enable your pharmacy to check for you. Are there any other quest...

how long does it take to withdrawls from clonidine 2 mg! I am here for answers because my Doctor refuses to help me
5 Replies RSS
Hi I am wondering how long it will take me to get over the major withdrawals from the Clonidine. I have been taking it since my nervous beak down. I have been begging for my Doctor to wean me off of it within the 1st few weeks after starting it. It says on the paperwork that I can't just stop. I used to be on .18 mgs, then I made it less which is .8 total per day. Now the Doc says I will NOT ever be taken off of it. This Clonidine makes me feel like total crap & I want to be off of it 100% as I will be helping victims and their family members get all the right answers, which they deserve. I am NOT as depressed as I was & the only reason why, is because I know I am doing the right thing to help with my heart. My grandpa passed Feb 1999, grandma March 7th 1999 from a broken he...

how long clonidine withdrawals last cold turkey?
Post a Reply
Omg I'm f***n miserable! I didn't think I would have withdrawals this bad after only a month and a half of taking thus drug everyday. It's literally comparable to a milder xanax withdrawal. Yes, I did abuse it. I would take 3 0.1 mgs 2-3 times a day. Tolerance goes up extra quick with this drug. I have none left and I'm on my 3rd day of feeling like s***. I'm on a hundred and 30 milligrams of methadone every day, and it's not even taking care of me in the morning times because of how s***ty I feel. Woah good lord I f***d up royally lol my tolerance for things is always extra high because of how long I've done drugs. I refuse to tell my clinic and I just need some help because I can't find any info about how long it stays in the body when you stop it cold ...
