Blood Pressure Overview

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

APO Ramipril

how long does ramipril stay in the body 2EARE ## how long does altace 2.5mg stay in your body after you stop it? ## How long does ramipril remain in your body after stopping ## Hello, According to the FDA and NIH ramipril has a half life cycle of 3-16 hours and since it takes normally 4 to 6 half lifes for the drug to completely leave your body you are looking at between 12-96 hours, which a huge gap. Out of curiosity why do you need to know? Most people ask this question to determine when the earliest they can take a different medication is.

Hope this answers your question.

Lisinopril and acid reflux?

I started taking lisinopril a couple of years ago. I never really got the cough. However I got acid reflux that was debilitating. I was prescribed pantoprazole for that. I hate the long term side effects and was looking for an alternative - and wondering how I suddenly got reflux. I stopped the pantoprazole two weeks ago and am coping with apple cider vinegar. After some research it seems that lisinopril can cause stomach issues. So I stopped that yesterday and am drinking hibiscus tea instead. Has anyone else had acid reflux disease as a result of lisinopril? ## Hello, Gerdie! How are you doing? Most prescription medications can cause acidity issues as a side effect, according to the FDA. They can often be mitigated by making sure to take them with food, or by taking an antacid with th...

Losartan and Tylenol

I am on blood pressure medication (Losartan) and I want to take a Tylenol for a headache. Can I take it? ## According to the University of Maryland Medical Center ( / drug interaction tool), there are no interactions listed between Losartan and Tylenol (Acetaminophen).

Bystolic 5.0 mg split dose for atrial fibrillation

Taking Bystolic 5.0 mg once a day for atrial fibrillation. It makes me extremely tired. Just wondering if I cut the pill and took 2.5 mg twice a day would make me less tired? ## Aspirin a Day ...... do they really know what time it is ? ## Is by Bistolic akin to sotalol? I have been taking sotalol for years, and it may be having the same effects on me. ## @Yvette, Theoretically, a smaller dose would affect you less and therefore you'd probably experience less severe side effects. It may be worth considering if you get your doctor's approval. @Zorro, Bystolic (Nebivolol) is indicated for use in treating high blood pressure. Sotalol is indicated for use in treating heart rhythm problems (arrhythmias). While they're both used for treating cardiovascular related abnormalities, t...

TruVision and Lisinopril

Does anyone know if these two products are safe to take together? I asked this question before I ordered it and was assured it was ok. However, I just took my first dose and read the back label (I know....I should have doubled checked first). It states it's 'not intended' for people with high blood pressure! Ugh! Now I'm trying not to stress out so my BP level won't go up. Any information would be helpful! ## I am sorry, I really understand your concern. Being a heart and blood pressure patient myself, I have found myself in that same boat a few times, sometimes it is iffy knowing what we can and can't take. However, from what I can find, the NIH reports TruVision as being a manufacturer, not the name of one specific product. They make several natural supplements...
