what is the side effect of asomex d ## Asomex-D contains the active ingredients Amlodipine and Hydrochlorothiazide, it is most commonly used to treat high blood pressure and cardiac conditions. Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and dehydration. Learn more: Are there any other comments or questions? ## Whether it causes swelling in the legs due to water retation ## sainath, the Hydrochlorothiazide that is in the Asomex-D is a diuretic that is used to remove fluid from the body to treat or prevent that water retention, so this medication definitely shouldn't cause that, it should help prevent it or reduce it, if you are already suffering from it. Of course, this means that you do have to watch for possible symptoms of dehydration, such as: nausea, weakness...

losartan changes
1 Reply RSS
I have been taking losartan for about 3 weeks now and I wanted to know if it changes your menstrual cycle because as of right now I'm pretty late or could it be a possibility of pregnancy? ## Hello, Candy! How are you? No, causing a delay or lengthening of your cycle isn't listed among the side effects of Losartan that are provided by the FDA. They typically include nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination and hypotension. How late are you? Have you done a test, yet?

3 Replies RSS
Ive got high blood pressure and have been taking a small round pink pill but when i went to get my refill the pill is small but white and has what looks like a v on one side and the numbers 3972 on the other side. Im suppose to be taking 10 mg of lisinopril. Can you tell me what this pill is. I am so confused because of the different kinds of pills for my brand of medicine I take. Plus I also feel light headed, fuzzy and sick to my stomach. It probably dont have anything to do with this pill but just want to be on the safe side. Why do they make different kinds of pills for lisinopril 10 mg? ## The reason there are different pills available is because Lisinopril is a generic medication, not a name brand. The name brands would be Prinivil or Zestril. When a medication is available as a g...

108 Replies RSS
I'm a 51 yr. old female who woke up on April 7, 2011, with an extremely salty taste in my mouth. When I tried to drink water to wash it out, it was like drinking salt gargle water. Nothing I eat or drink makes it go away. I can't stand to put anything in my mouth that is salty because the salt taste already in my mouth makes it almost unswallowable. Prior to that day, I have only 2 regular medications that I take daily: Lisinopril 40 mg( increased from 20 mg in mid November) for high BPas well as HCTZ 25 mg(been taking Lisinopril for 8 years) and 1mg of ropinorole(generic for Requip) for RLS (taking for almost 6 years). I also take black cohosh twice a day for hot flashes and night sweats(last menstrual cycle was Sept. 2010). On March 18, I started taking a 10 day prescription f...
