Lupin lisinopril pill size change
71 Replies RSS Share
I take 10 miligram Lupin tables - have been taking them 2x a day for 20 years. Today, I opened the bottle and they were 1/2 the size. Same markings on the pill and container, same color, same manufacturer but 1/2 the size. I asked the pharmacy assistant about it and she said the company was making them smaller but they were the same. I asked how they were doing that - were they removing fillers? Why did they have so many fillers in the first place. She said she didn't know, but would transfer me to the pharmacist. I asked the pharmacist and she sounded like she had been asked what the weather would be like the next day - "oh, I don't know...yeah...I don't really know." I don't feel comfortable taking these. ## Yes, in most cases they have changed the fillers they...

Pur Bloka

Can Pur-Bloka or it's generic be bought over the counter? What alternatives are there to Pur-Bloka? I'm using it once a day for mild nervousness. ## Pur-Bloka contains the active ingredient Propranolol, it is a beta blocker, which is most commonly used to treat high blood pressure and cardiac related conditions. Thus, I am not sure how it is supposed to help with nervousness of any type. In the U.S. and other countries that regulate their medications, it is only available by prescription. I don't know where you are located, so I have no way of knowing if the same is true for you, or not. Can you post back with your location? Learn more: ## In South Africa it is used to treat Anxiety, you do need a perscription. I have Bi-polar type 2. I get very nervous in front of people an...

3 Replies RSS Share
I've been on this medication @ 2yrs after coming from Metoprolol 10mg. They were/are prescribed for lowering my heart rate and helping with Anxiety. I feel it has done both! Occasionally I get a 'fluttering' sensation. But what is really troubling me is the recent stomach and intestinal issues: Acid reflux, trapped gas in upper stomach area after eating certain foods. I can't find any definitive answers if it fact causes gastrointestinal problems...? Can anyone confirm? ## Yes, most medications can cause gastrointestinal issues. You may have developed gastritis, which could require medical treatment. Have you consulted your doctor? Have you tried taking any antacids or antigas products? ## I take Alka Seltzer and sometimes when it does not work I have to take a Nexium ty...

## I have been taking Lisinopril, Metoprolol and Amlodipino. Could you tell me what secondary effects these medicines produce ? Do they steal my minerals ? I have lost several teeth, and my recent memory too. Besides I cough a lot. Thanks. ## Gavis, you should consult your doctor, since once that cough starts, it usually doesn't go away, according to FDA reports, so you might need to try different medications, according to FDA reports. Other side effects are listed as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, low heart rate, and hypotension. How are you doing, now? Has there been any change?

Valsartan manufactured by Sandoz works fine for me. Valsartan manufactured by Qualitest causes me to have headaches and swollen ankles. ## Hi Beverly, I've seen a lot of posts here dissecting different manufacturer's that work better than others, including ways to ensure you receive the proper brand that works best. Something I would encourage you to do is contact your doctor prior to getting your next prescription written, and ask him/her to specify a particular manufacturer's name on the Rx. By doing this, whichever pharmacy you go to will now have to find a way to abide by the doctor's request or quite simply refer you to another location that does carry the appropriate brand. To avoid further questioning on the pharmacist's part, it may also be a good idea see if...

What specific sulfa drug or drugs have you had a reaction to? While many blood pressure medications are related, not everyone that is allergic to a sulfa drug, such as Bactrim, is also allergic to all the rest. I am a good example of that. I had a very bad reaction to Bactrim several years ago, but I am fine with blood pressure and cardiac medications. What blood pressure medications have you tried?

Have you consulted a doctor regarding your back pain?

Losartan Withdrawal Symptoms
2 Replies RSS Share
The doctor took me off Losartan and now my ankles keep swelling. Could this be the cause? ## It is possible. If it was stopped abruptly, the FDA does warn that it may cause some rebound effects, such as elevated heart rate, blood pressure, and fluid retention. Are you on any other medications? Have you informed your doctor of the problem? Uncontrolled edema could cause congestive heart failure, which has the potential to be fatal. ## I have been on Losartan 25 mg for a month and have side effects from it. I tried to stop it and my B/P went up higher than before I started it. It went from 140/90 to 170/104. Please advise how to stop this drug without causing this side effect.
