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, usually measured at a person's upper arm. A person’s blood pressure is usually expressed in terms of the systolic pressure over diastolic pressure and is measured in millimet...

Mylan 772 (VERAPAMIL 120 MG)
Is this immediate release or extended / sustained release? I have migraines and this was prescribed as "3 tablets by mouth at bedtime." But if it is immediate release do I really want to be taking all 360 mg at once? Shouldn't I take 1 pill 3 x per day instead? ## Have you asked your doctor, or pharmacist about this? The tablet you asked about is 120mg regular release tablet, which means it takes about 15 to 20 minutes to start working. That is a little higher than the normal preventative migraine dose, which is usually 240mgs at bedtime. ## I too had migraines. I started on Calan SR 120mg (there were no generics ) about 16 years ago. After a year the migraines came back so my doctor increased the dosage to 240 mg. After three years, my insurance company decided that they wo...

eritel ch 80 side effects
My bp was always high. DR prescribed eritel ch80. Bp seems to be in control but I have major side effect. Whenever I stand up from sitting or sleeping I feel major weakness and seem to fall. I need to rest for a min and then I can start. And this happens everytime I stand. Sometimes I feel I am going to collapse. is this normal with this medicine. Earlier I used to have other versions of eritel and same thing used to happen but this eritel ch80 is the strongest when it comes to short term weakness. ## HI, Arun! Sorry about the problem that you're having. How are you feeling today? Eritel CH contains Telmisartan and Chlorthalidone, the Chlorthalidone is a diuretic that removes excess fluid from the body. Usually, when you get dizzy like upon moving/standing suddenly, it means that yo...

verapamil differences between Ivax/Teva and Mylan
I had been taking Calan SR 240 for a number of years to control my ophthalmic migraines. My health insurance said that I needed to go with the generic so they put me on Verapomil HCL by Ivax/Teva with no problems. Then the insurance company said that they would not cover the meds by Ivax/Teva and the pharmacy provided Verapomil ER by Mylan. After taking the new meds for 4 days, my blood pressure went from ~135/70 to 189/100. The pills from Ivax are Ivory in color and the ones from Mylan are blue. When I take the Ivax, my blood pressure returns to normal and skyrockets with Mylan. Since both pills are supposed to be identical, can anyone think of a reason why they so drastically different? My doctor has put me on Lisinopril to go along with the Mylan meds to control my BP. This sounds lu...
