Instaflex And Blood Pressure Heart Medicine Cholestorl
6 Replies RSS
is it ok to take instaflex if u have heart problems, high blood pressure and cholesterol, thyriod problems ## Instaflex is an over the counter product that is claimed to help with joint health, so as nothing more than a dietary supplement, it hasn't actually been tested for possible interactions with medications and health conditions. However, since I am also a hypertension and cardiac patient, I can tell you that one of the ingredients in it is Cayenne pepper and it can cause blood pressure elevations in some people. Learn more hypertension details here. It can really depend on the person, so I'd suggest checking with your doctor, or pharmacist, before taking it. From what I've found, any of the various pepper extracts can cause blood pressure elevations in some people, so ...

1 Reply RSS
I have. Pacemaker I had high blood pressure during my last visit, my doctor switched my mess from twice daily Metoprolol Succinate ER 50 mg twice daily to a 100mg Metoprolol Succinate SA. This has made me so tired I could sleep all day, no energy fatigue trouble balancing weakness. What is the difference and do these symptoms go away I've been on this for a week ## They should go away, with time, as your body gets used to the medication, but it may take about 4 to 5 weeks. Other side effects, as listed by the FDA may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. Is there anything else I can help with?

I am 83 years old & haave severe kidney disease, diabetes, & copd. ## So you do you take both, or do you take one or the other as you can get them, or they are available? If you aren't taking medications consistently on a regular basis, that could be contributing to the problem, since dizziness can be a typical side effects, according to FDA reports, and it may take 4 to 5 weeks for you body to get used to them and for such side effects to taper off and go away. What other medications are you taking?

Are there any warnings or adverse effects from this China-manufactured generic drug? I'm fearful of taking it; and was unable to convince my pharmacy to pursue or supply a U.S. manufactured drug. ## Regardless of where it is manufactured, any given medication must meet the same safety and efficacy standards, in order for the FDA to approve of it being supplied and made available in the U.S. The typical side effects of this medication are listed as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension, the same as the others available. Is there anything else I can help with?

Metoprolol: Do the side effects improve eventually?
43 Replies RSS
I started Metoprolol this Monday after the cardiologist prescribed it because of being in the ER with extremely fast heartbeats. After a heart ultrasound, chest xray, blood tests, and wearing a holter moniter, they found there was nothing wrong with my actual heart other than the fact that I have a mild heart arrhythmia which they believe was brought out by a virus I also had. Now that I have started the medicine, I have had dizziness, nausea, sever mood swings, insomnia, and anxiety. The cardiologists' nurse said these were all normal, but it seems a little excessive to me. I am on the lowest possible dose (25MG) minus the possibility of cutting the pill in half and I take it once a day. I do not have high blood pressure and am young and not overweight (5ft and 105lbs). Has anyone ...

Lisinopril 20 mg E 102 v.s. 3973 V
1 Reply RSS
I was taking Lisinopril 20 mg V 3973 and it was changed to Lisinopril 20 mg round E 102. They are from different companies. Is this safe to take? ## Since this is a generic medication, it is manufactured by several different companies, so you may not always receive the same ones from your pharmacy, that is completely normal and nothing to worry about. Having multiple manufacturers helps create market competition to try to keep generic prices lower. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. Are you on any other medications?

Lisinopril 2.5mg efficacy
1 Reply RSS
I recently started taking Lisinopril 2.5mg about 2 weeks ago at bedtime. It was decided because I am so sensitive to medications to start on the lowest dose. It was suggested at this time because in the morning it is quite high. However, it is still high (this morning it was 155/95 and has been higher) but then it goes down throughout the morning and day. Why? Also, I've noticed that my mouth during the night is very, very dry and I wake up about 3 times per night to take a sip of water. Could this be causing the reading? Also, does it just take more time to begin to show a lowering of BP, especially in the morning? ## It may take 4 to 5 weeks for this medication to reach its full level of efficacy in your body to see how well it will work for you. The FDA lists the typical side eff...

I take Lisinopril -HCTZ-20-12.5 mg twice a day. I noticed on my refill bottle It says Lisinopril 20 mg twice a day. Is that the same or should they be cut in half two times a day or should I call the doctor. Will this cause my heart rate to be higher and blood pressure to higher?. Thank You ## Did your doctor change your prescription? The original contained Lisinopril with Hydrochlorothiazide, while the new one, according to what you've listed, only contains the Lisinopril. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. It is always best to take the one your doctor has directed you to take. Is there a chance your pharmacy made an error?

My husband takes the blue generic version of amlodipine/benazepril. When the pharmacy filled it again they shipped Dr. Reddy's brand of 5/20 amlodipine/benazepril and when he started it he had chest pains and anxiety. Could this be be due to the change to Dr Reddy's brand?
