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 the work done by the heart in pumping blood round the circulation.

Migraine headaches from Amlodipine?

Has anyone experienced migraine headaches while taking Amlodipine? ## No headaches but watched my blood pressure increase up to 200/95 immediately after it was swallowed. In the beginning it was okay but they changed manufacturers and who knows what inactive ingredients were added. Quit taking it and now only take Brand name Dyazide 37.5mg/25 mg capsule once a day in the morning same time every day. I even tried brand name NORVASC (amlodipine besylate) and that increased my blood pressure up to stroke levels. ## I have had no problem with Amlodipine.

150 mg Wellbutrin sustained release

Since my pharmacy switched to Solco as the supplier of my Wellbutrin I have had all the symptoms, for which I was taking Wellbutrin, return. Has anyone else experienced this problem? ## Hello, Deb0724! How are you? As set forth in the Hatch-Waxman Act of 1984, there can be fluctuations in the amount of active ingredients in generic medications, they are allowed to differ from the name brands by as much as plus or minus 20% and they only have to measure against the name brand, not other generics. Thus, it is highly possible that one may have a little more of the active ingredient, while a different one may be slightly lower. Can anyone else that's taken the one from Solco chime in with their experience? The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including n...

Discontinue use of zopax

Hi, I usually take about 2 or 3 0.5mg zopax tablets during the day to function "normally" and 2 or 3 at night to get a nights sleep. I know that I am addicted to it but I now want to stop as I really want to get my life back as I have 2 kids and don't want to fail them. I know that once I'm off these and recover I will be able to lead a normal med free life because I really don't want to depend on medication but am so afraid of withdrawal pains especially insomnia. when I first started taking it to help me stay calm but more to knock me off at night it seemed like a fantastic miracle but now not so much as I feel like I can't go without it and when I do take it I really feel lethargic and sleepy not how I was before starting, an active happy person, I want to be ...
