Blood Pressure Overview

Blood pressure (BP) is the pressure of circulating blood on the walls of blood vessels.

how to stop taking losartan

I had taken losartan50/hctz 12.5 for 10 years, In recently years I suffered dry coughing and bad running nose allergy. I found out this is the side effect of losartan. Cutting the dose to half, changing to a water pill.. did not solve the problem. Over this holiday I developed bronchitis and was quite ill. I had very bad coughing, losing voice, sinus infection, nose bleeding, etc. I stopped taking Losartan to avoid further complications. I notified my doctor that I will check my blood pressure if the record is not over 140-90. I will keep the Losartan off. What else can I do? ## Hello, Muchin! How are you doing? Have your symptoms improved, yet? The FDA lists other typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and increased urination. However,...

Sodium level coming down

My mother is 79yrs old. She has had an Electrolyte problem for the last 2 yrs. Sodium levels are coming down. This is the 3rd year. Even in May of 2010, she began having the same problem. From May 2010 to till Dec 2010 she used Covance 50mg for BP and Wysolone 5mg. She did not have any problem. Soduim levels are 138.4 out of 145 and hemoglobin is 10.4, this result is from mid December. In mid Dec 2010, she got a cold and cough, so we went to the doctor and she normally checked the BP and she found a little bit of high BP, i think 152 (I don't remember exactly) and the Doctor prescribed Losar - H (LOSARTAN POTASSIUM AND HYDROCHLOROTHIAZIDE) twice a daily instead of Covance 50 mg.

Prexum (perindopril)
2 Replies RSS
I want to know about Prexum (perindopril) ## My father was given Prexum as blood pressure medication by his doctor. He was told to take 2 tablets a day, but after about 5 days he ended up in the hospital gravely ill. His body was quivering, eyelids, mouth and hands were unsteady. His lips, tongue and throat were swollen. He couldn't talk or walk. Could he have had an idiopathic anaphylaxis shock? He was released from the hospital and is at home at the moment. He seems very weak but he can eat soup and yogurt, drink water and tea. He can walk and go to the toilet by himself but my stepmother is always with him to make sure he doesn't fall and get hurt. ## This medication is used to help treat high blood pressure, and certain cardiac conditions. The NIH lists the typical side effe...
