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). To answer your question, the two numbers simply stand for the milligram of each ingredient. These two drugs are respectively a combination of a diuretic and an ACE inhibitor, to control hypertension. You can view a detailed description of the drug, by clicking on the link below... If you have any more questions or comments to add, please post back so I can further assist you. ## can this pill be cut in half if too strong ## I would check to see if there is a score line on the pill. If so, pills with score lines are generally made to be cut in half. I believe there is a Lisinopril 10 mg + Hydrochlorothiazide 7.5 mg combination in which case I personally would feel content ...

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...

Pharmapress side effects

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.

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...

Constant coughing

My mom had a change of b/p medication to losartan 100/25 hctz. After 2 weeks of taking it she developed a wet and dry cough with the need of clearing her throat. No sputum would come out. The cough gets worst at night when she is lying down. Can't sleep at night for the past 3 nights due to cough. She also has hoarseness with no throat pain. Has taken expectorant/ dexometropan over the counter medication but did nothing. Do u think it could be b/p medication or another underlying medical peoblem? ## Are you sure that wasn't Lisinopril? I've been taking Losarten prescrbed by my cardiologist for years with no side effects. Then my prephrenologist took me off the losarten and prescribed Lisinopril . I immediately develop a dry cough. Couldn't shake it off. Told my kidney Do...

Can Losartan and Lisinopril be taken together?

My nephrologist took me of of losartan because i take lisinopril with it and he said new studies have showed that it's not beneficial or not safe, he didn't really explain it to me but that appointment was on 7-11-14 ## Hello, Jack! How are you? Yes, they tend to increase the toxicity of each other, which can be risky, in some cases. Thus, it would be best to follow your doctor's advice. Normal side effects to Lisinopril may include nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach pain and dry cough. Is there anything else I can help with? ## DID HE TAPER OFF LOSARTAN? ## How long does it take losartan to get out of your system, so it would be safe to start back on my lisinopril. I was having a dry cough with lisinopril, so my dr put me on losartan, but it isn't controlling my blood...

Inderal propranolol 10mg- hair loss

please reply if your hair has fallen out and or you have had weight gain. if your hair has not fallen out please also reply. Thank you.......... ## Propranolol is a beta blocker and almost all of the medications in this class are known to cause weight gain and hair loss as side effects in some people that take them.

Bilocor side effects

Have been taking bilocor for 3/4 years, have developed a scalp condition - pityriasis amantacea which my dermatologist can be a rare side effect of bilocor.

Unfortunately, the Bilocor has rendered me totally impotent. Are there any alternatives without this side-effect? ## I take bilocor daily, but started having a runny nose and coughing from the approximate time of commencing with bilocor.

Olmin H20 Tablet

My dr prescribed me a tablet for controlling my blood pressure. The tablet's name is Olmin 20 H but i forgot when i have to take it now... Is it daily after meals or before meals? Pls help me. Thank you. ## Olmin-H contains the active ingredients Olmesartan and Hydrochlorothiazide and the best time to take it would be with a meal, to help minimize some of the side effects it can cause, such as nausea and dizziness. Additionally, you should make sure to take it in the morning, because the Hydrochlorothiazide can cause increased urination and taking it late in the day could cause you to have to get up several times during the night to use the bathroom.

clonidine false positive

I am a counselor at a ministry for addiction and need to know if clonidine will test positive for Benzo's. ## Clonidine is not a benzo. It is a blood pressure medication and off label can also help with anxiety and insomnia. This med is often confused with klonopin because of the similar sound of the 2 words and for the fact that is can be used to treat anxiety. But the chemicals in clonidine are completely different then the chemicals in benzodiazepines , so I couldn't see any reason at all it could test positive for a benzo . I also researched clonidine pretty extensively when my dr suggested it for me. So the answer is no. Don't worry , it's not a benzo . Hopefully you are also not confusing it with klonopin, cuz if it's klonopin your talking about then yes of cou...
