Blood Pressure Overview

Blood pressure (BP) is the pressure exerted by circulating blood upon the walls of blood vessels.

Blood pressure is usually expressed in terms of the systolic (maximum) pressure over diastolic (minimum) pressure and is measured in millimeters of mercury (mm Hg).

losarten/heart attack
Post a Reply
I have been on 100mg/day of losartan that I take 1/2 a pill twice a day for 6 months or so. The last 2 months I have experienced heavy heart palpitations, skipping beats etc directly after taking pill. I literally feel like I'm in the middle of a heart attack. Kidneys also hurt directly after taking losartan and urine is very yellow. I recently did not take it for a 3 days and felt much better but I started it up again due to the fear of heart trouble that I am not aware of. All of the above symptoms returned with a vengeance and now I am back to feeling close to death all day long...any suggestions?

I have been on various doses of metoprolol since July. The dr. Reduced dose from 100 mg. Twice a day to 50 mg. Twice a day then 25 mg twice a day. Still had vision problems and dizzy. 5 days ago reduced it to 12/12mg. Twice a day. Still have blurry vision and dizzyjudi ## Hello, Judi! How are you? Wow! That's horrible! Has there been any change? While those can be side effects of this medication, they usually go away after about 4 to 5 weeks, once your body gets used to the medication, according to the FDA. Other side effects may include nausea, headache, and hypotension. However, given the length of time you've been dealing with this, I think it's time to try a different medication and I'm not sure why your doctor hasn't already suggested that you do so. Are you wor...

Because your body gets used ...

what if i take a double dose of bisoprolol
1 Reply RSS
I noticed tonight that it appears I have taken an extra dose of my bisoprolol but I'm not sure if it was today or not I take 2.5 MG per day and am 34 years old. I'm wondering if I should be worried about this or not! ## Hello, Becky! How are you? Did you experience any adverse effects? Taking an extra dose once isn't usually a huge concern, especially at such a low dose, though it may cause more side effects than usual, which the U.S. FDA lists as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, drowsiness, and hypotension. However, it is always best to double check with your doctor, emergency services, or poison control, to be safe.

The U.S. FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding, and easy bruising. Is there anything else I can help with?

Started taking Lercanidipine 10mg. 5 days ago

Woke up this morning with severe cramping in legs.Am presently taking Accrete d3 tablets and been on these for a while.Should I be taking these together? Also feel woozy bu it wears off. ## Hello, May! How are you? The Lercanidipine can sometimes cause potassium loss as a side effect, and that can cause leg cramping, according to the NIH, so that may be what's causing the issue. Other side effects are listed as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and increased urination. It most likely does not have anything to do with the Accrete D3. How many potassium rich foods do you ingest, each day? What does your normal diet consist of?
