Hydralazine side effects

My PCP prescribed Hydralazine to treat my BP after taking amlodipine, metoprolol, and carvidelol - not working for me. I was hoping that this hydralazine will work for me, 10mg bid 2 only. Now in 15 days taking this med, I always have shortness of breath, feeling that my lungs are super congested. Barely breathe and all in the morning, my anxiety became so aggressive, feeling of constantly sad. But I was also being told that it is just a matter of time that my body will adjust or adapt this meds. But it's so hard waking up in the morning breathless, so when I stopped taking these meds, all bad symptoms are gone. Please help, I'm worried what if my BP will spike. I'm back to my alternative meds, boiled lemon grass I drink morning at night and I think that helps my blood press...

Metoprolol withdrawal

i've been taking metoprolol for several years as partial treatment for high blood pressure. through diet and exercise, i've lowered my BP to the point my doctor says drop the metoprolol. i did, 3 days ago, and i'm soooo tired, dizzy, irritable, and my vision is blurred. is this withdrawal? how long will it last? i remember starting this medication was terrible to get used to. it appears that stopping it is just as bad. ## I am experiencing the same thing and I am tapering off of the metoprolol.

clonidine positive test

Clonidine does test positive I've been going to outpatient and I'm on vivitrol which is an opioid inhibitor and i do a drug screens everyday. I'm on clonidine and gabapentin for withdrawals and my drug screens test positive for bup. ## When you say its comes up at Burp. are you meaning the ingredient in Suboxone. ## What can you clonidine show up as in your urine? It was a panel dip test and it is being sent to the lab, it's not being tested specifically for clonidine so can it show up as anything else(it was a white oval #,02 ome ? when that is the only thing being taken? ## Note... it is never medically necessary to perform drug testing everyday. This is an excessive and abusive billing practice by your health care provider. If this occurring, seek treatment somewhere ...

Can Propranolol Help Me Sleep

Having trouble sleeping at night and was wondering if propranolol would help as they slow your heart beat? ## No, it is not safe to try to use them to induce sleep. Propranolol can cause some drowsiness as a side effect, but it is actually most commonly used to help lower high blood pressure and improper use of it can be dangerous, due to the fact that it can lower your heart rate and blood pressure. You can learn more Propranolol details here. Thus, the first thing you need to do is get to the root of the problem. What is causing you to have trouble sleeping? Have you tried cutting out stimulants after 3pm, such as caffeine, chocolate and sugars? Do you keep a consistent bedtime and wake time? ## Propranolol can help some people sleep, particularly if their lack of sleep is due to anxi...

Coversyl Effect and BP Readings

I take Coversyl for high blood pressure. In the mornings my BP is usually around 137 over 96. In the evenings it has consistently been around 106 over 77. Why such a difference? I take the Coversyl in the mornings, would it stop having an effect after 24 hours? ## Is your morning check done, before you take your medication, or before it has a chance to start working? If so, that would explain it being slightly higher in the mornings. A different evening reading can be explained by your activity, diet, other medications you may be taking, and etc. It is normal for it to fluctuate throughout the day, you will not really ever get readings that are consistently the same. You can learn more here from the AHA. (American Heart Association) Are you on any other medications? Do you drink anythi...

Can Generic Hyzaar cause itching?

I started taking generic Hyzaar and I think this may be causing me to itch all over constantly. Is this possible? ## Mar, it sounds like you are having an allergic reaction of some sort. After reading through the package details on DailyMed, I did not find any specific mention of itching as an expected side effect of this drug. I would let your doctor know about this ASAP, as you may need to stop this drug.

Losartan causing shortness of breath?

Can Losartan cause shortness of breath? I take 100 mg. and cut today's dosage to 50 mg. Can I taper that way? ## In this case, it is very important that you consult your doctor as soon as possible. If you are taking such a medication for high blood pressure or a cardiac condition, there are quite a few issues, other than just the medication, that could be causing the shortness of breath and some of them, such as congestive heart failure, may be life threatening. Learn more Losartan details here. And if you been taking it for those reasons, it is not safe to just stop taking it and not be taking anything, even if you taper off, since such conditions will just revert to being uncontrolled. How severe is it and how often does it happen? ## I have been on Losartan for 43 days. 5 days ag...

prexum plus, pharmapress and fedaloc

Are they a good combination? My BP was always around 120/65-75 and suddenly it went up to about 150/93. I took pharmapress 10mg and fedaloc sr60 for months. I had prexum plus in my meds cabinet and took one after taking pharmapress and fedaloc as always. Now my BP is down again to about 130/74. It seems the prexum did help. What now? ## The problem is that the Pharmapress, which contains Enalapril, and the Prexum Plus, which contains Perindopril, are both ACE inhibitors, which means you are essentially doubling up on the same medication, which could cause you to take too much, and overdose. An overdose may cause symptoms such as shallow breathing, extreme dizziness, fainting, and dangerously low blood pressure, and heart rate, according to FDA warnings. REF: Perindopril and Enalapril I...

Chlorthalidone Use

In my research on Chlorthalidone, I have come upon information that may have a drastic impact on the use of this type of drug. Its action on the NMDA synaptic receptors could be the cause of many of the most damaging degenerative diseases. Parkinson, Alzheimer, Obesity, ALS, Tinnitus, Meniere's, Eplipsy, Huntington's and several others. The action is the reduction of fluids in the brain tissue increases the glutamate concentrations which have a drastic effect on the glutamate activated synapse. It opens the synapse for Sodium which lowers the voltage and allows Ca+ to attach and results in the death of the nerve. It also creates a whole chain of other similar effects with other neurotransmitters. Taken in massive doses it can have devastating effects. ## If you feel that you hav...

Actavis Verapamil 40 mg

Does Actavis still make Verapamil / Calan in 40mg tablets? ## Actavis has been purchased by Teva Pharmaceuticals, and they produce a 40mg Verapamil with the WATSON logo over the number 404, which is round, and orange. Ref: Teva This likely means that the specific one that was manufactured by Actavis is no longer available. Generally, when one company purchases another, or merges with another, they stop producing the duplicate products, as it is not cost effective to keep manufacturing all of them. What product does your pharmacy have available?
