Blood Pressure Overview

Blood pressure (BP) is the pressure of circulating blood against the walls of blood vessels. Most of this pressure results from the heart pumping blood through the circulatory system. When used without qualification, the term "blood pressure" refers to the pressure in the large arteries. Blood pressure is usually expressed in terms of the systolic pressure (maximum pressure during one heartbeat) over diastolic pressure (minimum pressure between two heartbeats) in the cardiac cycle. It is mea...

prexum plus vs Prexum 5/1,25

I was prescribed Prexum Plus by my Doctor and suddenly the Pharmacist tells me that they are changing me to Prexum 5mg Plus? What is the difference between these two medications? Since I have been on the Prexum 5mg, I am feeling stressed and nervy and almost short tempered. Is this co-incidence or could this be the different medication? Please assist! ## Prexum contains the active ingredient Perindopril, which is a ACE inhibitor that is most commonly used to help treat high blood pressure, and certain cardiac conditions. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and hypotension. There is no difference between the two you have listed, one just lists the dosage, and the other one didn't, but they are the same medication and same dosage. ...

prazopress xl 2.5 is used for ? ## indications of the drug prazzopress ## Prozopress XL 2.5 is used for the treatment? ## My Doctor has prescribed to take 1/2 tab of Prazopress when BP shoots around 200/115 and 1/4 when it touches 180/105. My question is: Is it safe to take frequently with the rising of BP or should the use of Prazopress be restrained and taken some other medicine and only in acute cases this medicine be taken. In winter my BP shoots even upto 215/120. Can I take Prazopress-2 whenever BP crosses 200/110 1/4 to 1/2 tab as required. Will it be safe. There is no harm in using this medicine? ## I am a BP patient since 20 yrs, and I have taking carvedilol 6.5mg and prazopress xl2.5mg in the morning and amlodipne 5mg at night my blood pressure is 150/97 need change medicine

pink oval pill with imprint 287

I found a pink capsule shaped pill. Its pretty big and its its marked 287 on one side and nothing on the other please fill me in what this is ## @Tyson, The only relevant matches I'm finding are oval pink colored pills, imprinted with "2875" or "2876". There's no other numbers on the backside of each pill, but there is a faint imprint of a heart symbol. These particular pills are identified as an antihypertensive medication known as Avalide; containing hydrochlorothiazide + irbesartan. So I have to ask if there's any chance that the marking may have been misinterpreted due to possible fading/degradation of the pill itself from storage conditions or otherwise? Please post back if you have additional details regarding this and I'll see if I can dig any deep...
