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...

It is tough. ## it went away after a week or so. i feel great now, and my BP and heart rate have risen slightly, but thats the reason we stopped it. i've lost en...

Losartan & Anxiety

Anyone have anxiety issues/panic attacks while on this med? I have started with Losartan about 2 weeks ago and have been experiencing anxiety. I take doxepin as an insomnia aid and have had to increase the dosage due to the increased insomnia and anxiety. Do this symptoms level off over time. Losartin seems to be helping my BP. ## Yes, the FDA does report anxiety, panic disorder and insomnia as being common side effects of this medication. You may also experience dizziness, headache and increased urination. Side effects are usually transient and will go away, once your body gets used to medication, but that may take about 4 to 5 weeks. If they worsen, or don't go away after that time frame, you should consult your prescriber. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thanks. The in...

Plendil and Your Kidney

I have taken Plendil for more than 15 years along with Accupril. I am having problems with my kidney and wondered if stopping Plendil would be a wise move. There are other drugs that I am also taking that are not good for the kidneys so I just trying to see which of the ones I could change the easiest, Allopurinol is for my gout and I know that is a bad one for the kidney but am not sure I can taken anything else for that.

Best manufacturer of Nadolol?

Does anyone have any incite on which manufacturer makes the most effective and best quality nadolol? For years I took yellow nadolol manufactured by Cipla. This month the pharmacy dispensed blue nadolol manufactured by Bayshore instead. Is there an authorized generic more similar to the Brand Corgard? ## Hello, Pat! How are you doing? Is the new one you've received working for you? There really isn't any specific one that can be said to be the best, since it can vary from person to person, the one that works well for you, might not work as well for someone else. The only thing you can really do is try it, and see. Nadolol may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, increased urination, and hypotension. Are you on any other medications?

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...

benicar olmesartan coughing

I have taken Benicar for years. Dr. tried a different BP medicine and I started a dry cough for weeks......back to Benicar, and cough went away. In December, Dr. switched me to olmesartan, which, as I understand it is generic for Benecar. I've been coughing ever that even possible? Are the two medicines identical, or is it possible that for me, Olmesartan causes cough but Benicar does not? ## I also recently switched from Benicar to the generic form. Can't stop with the dry cough. After hearing of your experience, I'm calling my cardiologist. This is intolerable! ## It is always possible for your body to suddenly start reacting differently to a medication, and for you to start experiencing new side effects. Our bodies do change with time, so it does happen. ...
