Blood Pressure Overview

Blood pressure (BP) is the pressure of circulating blood on the walls of blood vessels. Most of this pressure is due to work done by the heart by pumping blood through the circulatory system. Used without further specification, "blood pressure" usually refers to the pressure in large arteries of the systemic circulation. Blood pressure is usually expressed in terms of the systolic pressure (maximum during one heartbeat) over diastolic pressure (minimum in between two heartbeats) and is measu...

Losartan and shortness of breath

I have been taking losartan for a few months and i am experiencing shortness of breath, swollen nasal passages and dry throat, it’s starting to scare me and when I wine to the doctor to ask her she said it can’t be from the losartan and have gave me an inhaler which has not helped. Anyone else have this problem? ## HI...Yes. I was on Losartan for a long time and it gave me these symptoms also. Many symptoms. You can search side effects/Losartan from several sites. I took them down from every site. Losartan damaged my kidneys, however it stopped when I got off. It gave me severe edema and throat congestion, nasal congestion, insomnia, pneumonia and ruined my gut causing food senstivities. My Dr. also didn't believe me and I told him I wouldn't take it. Found out I was...

verapamil difference between SR and ER

I am taking verapamil SR 240mg. A lot of drug plans only offer it as ER. What's the difference? ## There is no difference, they are both just abbreviations that denote it as being a time released formulation. ER= extended release SR= sustained release You may also see it denoted with the abbreviations: XR = extended release and CR = controlled release. However, as I said, they all mean the same thing. Verapamil is a calcium channel blocker used to treat hypertension, angina and other cardiovascular problems. Common side effects may include: nausea, dizziness, headache and stomach pain. Read more: Are there any questions or comments? ## There is a difference between verapamil ER and SR. One is taken once a day and the other is meant to be taken twice a day. That is what the pharmacis...

Losartan 25 mg Switching Brands Caused Problems

After taking Solco Healthcare Losartan for many years, with no problems, I switched to another less expensive brand, Aurobindo. I soon began to notice my bp reads were significantly higher and, indeed, I too developed a cough. After 2 months of this I switched back to my Solco Losartan and, thankfully, my bp reads have once again stabilized and my coughing has ceased. In all fairness, I cannot say for certain that my cough was caused from the Aurobindo med, I only know the duration of my cough was during this time period. ## I took Aurobindo losartan 50 mg. for three to four weeks and experienced the same symptoms as you, but my cough still persists. I had tried Teva's losartan and that drug was totally ineffective. Just wanted to say "thank you" for posting that Solco's...

Magnesium with Losartan

I currently take 50 mg losartan daily. Would taking magnesium tartrate pose a risk? ## Nothing specific was found with regards to Losartan and Magnesium interacting with one-another, so it should be okay [1]. What I did read, however, is that it is not recommended to take Magnesium if you consume alcohol regularly. "Excessive ethanol (e.g., alcoholism) may result in increased urinary excretion of magnesium. Avoid high intakes of ethanol while taking magnesium salts." Source: [1] UCLA Health Drug Interactions Checker, always double check with your doctor or pharmacist.

Switching from Bisoprolol and Amiodarone to Atenolol

Just coming off Bisoprolol and Amiodarone and going back to Atenolol. I currently have bad problems with sleeping as I wake up at 5am. What could cause this problem? ## Even when you don't abuse a medication, and aren't addicted to it, you do develop a tolerance to anything you take for awhile, so it is normal to experience some withdrawal effects when coming off of it, you can also experience side effects from going back on the Atenolol, even if you took it, previously, and both of these can include trouble sleeping, as well as blood pressure changes, dizziness, and heart rate changes. It may take a few weeks, before things settle back down, and your sleeping schedule improves. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you for advice will try and be patient with the Aten...

Pliva 467 vs P10 Propanolol

I've been taking the Pliva 467 for almost 15 years. Now they did away with the 467 and i got the P10. I start them tomorrow but I'm afraid. Are they the same? ## Hi Joyce - I understand your concerns, especially if the Pliva version (50111-467) has been working for you all this time. To answer your question, they both contain Propranolol Hydrochloride 10 mg. The P 10 version appears to be manufactured by Heritage Pharmaceuticals (NDC code 23155-110). The main difference between these two are the inactive ingredients. Pliva 467 inactive ingredients: - Anhydrous Lactose - Magnesium Stearate - Cellulose, Microcrystalline - Sodium Starch Glycolate Type a Potato - FD&C Yellow No. 6 - D&C Yellow No. 10 - Aluminum Oxide P 10 inactive ingredients: - D&C Yellow No. 10 - FD...

lisinopril anxiety and palpitations

I have come to think the extreme anxiety depression heart palpitations and tingling in my left fingers are related to the 20 mg lisinopril I started just over a year ago. I also take amlodpine and warfarin ...I cant believe it took me so long to suspect this. I will speak to my doctor but also want to see what those who quit lisinopril have to say about the weaning period and side affects while cutting down and quitting . Please advise. This is horrible beyond anything I have ever experienced. Please help if you can ! ## Sorry, I just saw this post with more details. In this case, since you are on several medications, it is hard to say which one might be causing your symptoms, if they are due to a combination of them, or if they may be unrelated. As to stopping Lisinopril, sometimes if ...

Verapamil by Caraco Availability

I have Medicare and AARP to cover the cost of my Rx, but need help locating a pharmacy that carries the medication Verapamil made by "Caraco". I presently am taking Verapamil er 180 mg at night, mfg by Caraco and I have tried other brands/generics with too many side effects. ## Unfortunately, there is no directory of what pharmacy carries a product from any given manufacturer that anyone can refer to for you. However, if you can post back with your general location, someone might be able to recommend a pharmacy in your area. As to any other options, the only thing you can really do is ask at your various local pharmacies, if they don't have it in stock, one might be able to order it in for you. Verapamil is most commonly used to treat high blood pressure, and certain cardiac...
