Blood Pressure Overview

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

Blood pressure is usually expressed in terms of the systolic (maximum during one heart beat) pressure over diastolic (minimum in between two heart beats) pressure and is measured in millimeters of mercury (mmHg), above the surrounding atmospheric pressure (considered to be zero for...

Anxiety Meds Asheville, NC

I have Post Partem anxiety and have been going to Minnie Jones for several months to see Dr.Ambrose in an attempt to avoid medications. It's not working. The last time I was on any medication that worked for me it was a coupling of Clonidine (Kapvay) and Diazepam as PRN for anxiety attacks. To make a long story short, I was able to completely stop needing medications for a long time. The program that I was in which originally prescribed these medications was shut down for abuse several years ago, and all of their records were destroyed in an "accidental" fire. They continued to prescribe my meds long distance for years before this happened. What I am saying is, I need a doctor who is willing to go with my suggestions as this is my body, but also who will not push me to try new

Essential hypertension in diabetic type two patients
Post a Reply
I am a diabetic patient (type two). Due to essential hypertension around 150/92, my Dr prescribed telmisartan 20. My pulse rates elevated to 114 and 88 in the morning. I was feeling fatigued, mental confusion, blurred vision within 4 weeks of medication. I was changed over to Nebi 2.5 and dramatically my bp has come down to 110/70 average with pulse around 70-78 per minute. Since I am diabetic and also taking glimperide 2 in the morning and fenofibrate 145 at evening with metformin 500 at night, will Nebi 2.5 worsen my blood sugar control, which is just now around 110-125 on fasting? Will nebivolol will be suitable for long term therapy to a patient like me who is a patient of type two diabetes for 15 years? My high BP has been diagnosed recently, just two months back. Due to severe hig...

Is it safe to be taking 5mg of amlodipine and 25mg APO-metoprolol in the morning and again in the evening? ## You should take them, if your doctor has instructed you to do so.

Lisinopril 20mg hctz/losartan 100mg htcz
3 Replies RSS
I have been taking 20 mg lisinopril with the diuretic and my blood pressure has been anywhere from 140?/90? To 150?/98 or so. Today my doctor switched me to losartan hctz100-25 mg. I'm worried the mg in losartan is so much higher than the lisinopril. Is this safe? Will this make my blood pressure drop to an unsafe level? I took the lisinopril this morning and he told me to start the losartan tomorrow morning. Is this okay? ## Hello, Melissa! How are you? That is a normal starting dose for Losartan, it may seem a lot higher than the dosage you were taking of Lisinopril, however, since it is in a different class of medications, it is actually only a little higher, which I'm guessing is due to the fact that your blood pressure readings were still high and need further lowering. How...
