Blood Pressure Overview

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

lisinopril-hctz 20/12.5mg

white pill ## What does 20/12.5 mg mean? ## The pill you have is Lisinopril (20 mg) + Hydrochlorothiazide (12.5 mg).

Metoprolol and low heart rate - need response quickly

My husband takes 50mg Metoprolol succinate 1 x daily at bedtime for V-tach (no heart disease) along with 20mg lisinopril and 1 baby aspirin. He recently got an Apple watch and was alerted that his heart rate while he slept had dropped to 37 and 34. We recently moved, we have to wait for an appt to get in with a new doctor and then have to be referred to the cardiologist here for a check up as it has been about a year since he last saw the cardiologist (that is when the meoprolol was increased to 50mg) and was told to come back in a year. Is the low heart rate at night an urgent concern or is it ok to wait until he can get in with the new doctor. Or should he cut the tablet in half? Thank you for your help! ## Hi Rosan, Sorry to hear about your husband's situation. According to wikip...

metoprolol heart rate

I have been taking toprol xl for a couple weeks because my heart rate keeps spiking out of nowhere, the doctor upped the dose and it's still happening. Had to get an ambulance today when my blood pressure got up to 150/102 heart rate 146. This happens very fast when it happens and I normally have a very low blood pressure. Around 98/70 range . Why does my heart rate and bp spike like this? I'm not doing anything but resting lately. ## Well, there are various things that could cause it, according to NIH reports, such as being sick, eating, taking in a lot of caffeine, or other medications. Generally, Toprol causes a lowered heart rate and blood pressure. Have you consulted a cardiologist? Are you on any other medications? What time of day is it spiking? ## m on mtoprolol succinat...

Can pharmapress cause kidney problems? I am using pharmapress, had a blood test and there is something wrong with my kidneys. ## Hello Jan, According to the National Institute of Health Pharmapress, a medication used to treat high blood pressure, contains the active ingredient enalapril maleate. Kidney issues is not listed among the known adverse reactions associated with enalapril maleat, in fact Pharmapress has reportedly been used to treat kidney failure.

Have a wonderful day. ## Hello everyone. So I've been taking Pharmapress and have noticed it makes me brain dead, but if I stop using it, I feel awesome and if I us...

Chlorthalidone and coughing side effect

After two weeks of taking Chlorthalidone I have a maddening cough, yet my lungs are clear. Anyone else experience this? ## That can be a side effect of most medications used to help control blood pressure, cardiac conditions, or remove excess fluid from the body, according to FDA reports. The problem, however, is that once the cough starts, it doesn't usually go away, so you may need to try a different medication. I experienced it from Lisinopril and had to switch to a different medication. Have you informed your doctor? Are you on any other medications? ## I have been on chlorthalidone for 3 weeks. My cough is driving me nuts. I will stop taking it this weekend and call my cardiologist Monday.

clonidine 0. 2 mg

I have recently been put on this drug for sleeping and well its not working at all. I have been taking one at night before bedtime which is what I was told but is it safe to take 2 since im not getting any rest with the 1? ## Also I failed to mention in last comment they are 0.2 mg ## I would recommend trying 1 1/2 first take it no more than 15 mins before bed it works fast. But if u take it 1hour or 30 mins before bed you can kind of simulate yourself into it not working then it loses its effect. Once the groggy effect wears off before your in bed most likely you will not fall asleep well. ## I would also call your doctor to let he/she know it's not working because if you increase your dose without say so to the doctor they will not be happy and you will run out of meds early. If t...
