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.

alternative for metoprolol
i just started taking metoprolol for a fast heart rate.i am having terrible side effects.what are my other options to treat this condition?thnks ## Hello, Suzy Q! How are you? What side effects are you having? Its most common ones include nausea, dizziness, headache and stomach pain. There are other medications you can try and your doctor should be able to prescribe an alternative. However, most side effects do wear off, after about 4 weeks or so, once your body gets used to the medication. How long have you been taking it? ## hello and thank you for responding i have been taking lopressor for two weeks thanks for the feedback i will try a little longer taking it.

Alcohol and pretizonr
I am taking a low dose of pretizone for poison ivy. I have two days left on pretizone. I take norvasc and a diuretic for hypertension. Can I have a glass of wine while on these meds? ## Hello, Nanny! How are you? It is never a good idea to mix alcohol with prescription medications. It can worsen the side effects of them, which may make one drink affect you as if you'd had 2 and so on. Additionally, alcohol can be cardiotoxic, so it may not be safe for you drink. Is there anything else I can help with?

adco bisocor 5mg side effects
does this medication reduce pulse rate ## Yes, it can cause a lowered heart/pulse rate as a side effect. This medication contains the active ingredient Bisoprolol, which is a beta blocker that's most commonly used to treat high blood pressure and certain cardiac conditions, its other side effects may include nausea, dizziness and hypotension. The main thing you have to watch for is how much it's lowering your heart rate, if it's dipping below 60 beats per minute, then it is a concern that should be discussed with your doctor. It should naturally be lower when you are sedentary, but it should go up when being active. If you are a high performance athlete, yours may be lower when resting and that may be normal for you. Are there any other questions I can help with? ## Why woul...
