Severe interaction from BP meds

Taking 120 mg per 24 hrs diltiazem with 0.1mg clonidine transdermal. Expected some decrease in heart rate, but experienced a SEVERE attack with EXTREME elevation in heart rate when prescribed tamsulosin for urination control. No other medications except latanoprost. Taking the diltiazem for BP & HR surges that it appears to control well. Pre-existing aortic valve problem. ## PDR Net does list warnings regarding taking Tamsulosin with most blood pressure medications, since it can potentiate the hypertensive effects, and if your blood pressure drops low, then your heart has to work harder, so your heart rate usually goes up. Thus, the combo might not be right for you. Have you informed your doctor? ## Yes! Must have taken bp and/or hr very low to go into panic mode.

Have insomnia, dizziness, loss of balance, weak legs, itching especially of scalp and face, frequent urination, swelling in ankle and foot, and small appetite. I am in my 80's. I'd like to know if others have any of the same symptoms? ## Yes, those are possible side effects of one, or both of these medications. You may also experience headache, diarrhea, stomach pain, and easy bruising from the Eliquis and Diltiazem. How long have you been taking them? Some side effects will go away, in time, as your body gets used to them, but if it has already been a few months, and you are still having issues, you should speak to your doctor. ## I have been taking both for about 2 years. I have told my doctor but he insists I stay on th...
