What/Where is Tevau

My renewed Rx shows "Tevau". Is Tevau a place, a company name. How do I find out where the drug is MANUFACTURED?? The diltiazem capsule looks entirely different from the generic I have been taking. ## Hi Ginger, I think you may be referring to Teva Pharmaceuticals (possibly a misspelling of Teva). They are a drug company and they do manufacturer Diltiazem: tapi.com/Public/Product-List/Pages/Diltiazem_hcl.aspx I would consider contacting them directly if you have any concerns about their product, but hopefully this helps to answer your question about who the manufacturer is. ## Tevau is the way pharmacies spell it on their bottles, not Teva! My mother's HCTZ bottle has Tevau. ## I was using the manufacture Act and now they switched me to Tevau and I have been dizzy for 2 days

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.

i have been having trouble with water retention every since i was put on steriods which i am no longer on. i am also taking 40 mb. of lasix and 205 mg. of zaroxol. this is to alimanate all the fluid. what still have water retention and the doctor i visited today told me that cardizem would also retain fluid, so she told me to stop taking the carizem. what i won't to know is the information i am receiving correct or not. hoping to nget some insight on the matter. ## Cardizem, a 'calcium channel blocker' is well known for ankle/foot swelling, and it's not difficult to extend that propensity to include more of the legs ... My own experience took only one day for exactly that to happen: awakening with massive ankle/foot edems (where being horizontal during slleep would NOT b...

Eliquis and Diltiazem

I am on Eliquis 5 mg. per day, and Diltiazem 240 mg. ER. 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...

Ranexa - can't sleep

I am on Ranexa for just 10 days 500 mg twice daily and each night I wake up at 2 or 3 am and cannot fall back asleep till morning. I feel exhausted already and don’t know if I can use only one tablet in the morning? I tried once to skip evening dose and slept much better. Please let me know if any sleeping pill can help and if it is safe to combine the two. Also can my body get use to it? Not being able to sleep make me feel depressed. ## How are you doing, now? Has there been any change? It would best not to change your dose of the Ranexa, or to combine it with other medications, unless your doctor instructs you to do so. It has been known to cause insomnia as a side effect in some people that take it, but it is very rare.

fluid retention

Caridzem CD ... is this is the cause of my water retention. My knees are in such pain from water build up. How do I get rid of the fluid. I am drinking a lot of water. ## Cardizem CD contains the active ingredient Diltiazem, which is a calcium channel blocker, used to threat high blood pressure and certain cardiac conditions. And yes, it can cause fluid retention, which can lead to some severe health problems. Have you consulted your doctor? Drinking more water, if you are retaining fluid, is only going to worsen the condition. ## CARDIZEM CD 120 mg mfg Valeant OUT OF STOCK AGAIN This is a critical drug for me prescribed for AFIB. Being that hypersensitive to medications it is the ONLY drug I can take for my problem. They have tried me on all of them all the side effects are severe. Eve...

Has anyone had the reddening of the skin due to peripheral vaso dilation, if so when med. Was discontinued did it subside and long did it take? ## Hi Tee, While I don't have personal experience with this particular drug, I did want to add that one of the severe side effects related to Diltiazem is a rash. Does this sound like what you are referring to when you mention "reddening of the skin"? You can view a list of the "severe" side effects posted below: -swelling of the face, eyes, lips, tongue, hands, arms, feet, ankles, or lower legs -difficulty breathing or swallowing -fainting -rash -yellowing of the skin or eyes -nausea -extreme tiredness -unusual bleeding or bruising -lack of energy -loss of appetite -pain in the upper right part of the stomach -flu-like sympt...

ecosprin gold 20 and ecosprin 150

Can a patient take ecosprin 150 & ecosprin gold at once if having chest pain (heart attack)? ## Hello, Ibrahim! How are you? That would essentially be doubling up on the same medication and really won't do anything to help. Only one is necessary. The U.S. FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding, and stomach irritation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I was taking Ecosprin gold 20; can I take Ecosprin 150 instead of Ecosprin gold 20?

Nitrocortin 2.6 Usage

I, 71 years old, suffered sudden angina pectoris, having a little high blood pressure. My Dr. carried out an ECG which revealed normal ECG. Prescribed nitrocortin 2.6 twice with amlopres trio once. After 10 days blood pressure came down to a normal 130/80 which raised to 160/80 during angina. Would I require nitrocortin 2.6 further? If so, for how long? May you kindly advise? ## To my understanding, Nitrocortin is safe.

Diltiazem lingering side effects

How long does it take for the side effects to go away after discontinuing the drug? I stopped it one week ago and continue to have severe anxiety, vasodilation (red blotchy skin), and GI upset including bloating and gas. ## Hello Patty, There is no solid literature that states the length of the side effects. What the NIH does state is that if you are experiencing these symptoms that you should notify your doctor. I am certain that your physician will have a much better timeline of how long your symptoms will last based on their severity. I apologize that I wasn't able to find an exact answer but I hope that your doctor will have a good estimate. ## Thank you for your comments. Side effects are lessening by baby steps each day. I've been told that if you have a serious side effec...

losartin potassium

Problems with certain generics, took Teva brand for years, worked like a charm, they stopped making it, tried Solco brand and it gave me severe stomach pains, took namebrand and it gave me chest pain and palpitations anyone have similar experience? Wonder if I should try another brand of generic, not feeling well at all ## Hello robin, Both symptoms you described are associated with taking losartin and you should be communicating these symptoms with your doctor as they can be dangerous. Though each brand is required to have the same active ingredients in them the companies do have the ability to change their inactive ingredients which is what most people tend to have a problem with. I would discuss these symptoms with your doctor and then have them determine if you need to be tested for...

Adalat cc er discontinued?

Is this medication going off the market? The girl at HEB pharmacy said "they" (the pharmaceutical co.?) were going to quit making it. ## Why has Adalat 60 mg. been discontinued in Canada? What are the medical community recommending in replacement? ## Hello Sharon, According to the FDA only certain dosages of the Adalat CC extended release is going to be discontinued as of now. Their list shows that the 10mg XR version of the pill is being discontinued but all the others are currently listed as currently being produced. I can't promise they won't close down the other XR dosages but for the moment only the 10mg has been affected. I hope this helps. Have a wonderful day.

Can I cut isosorbide mononitrate 30mg tabs, made by Torrent, in 1/4's? 1/2 tab dropped my blood pressure to 105/54 which I didn't like. ## It would be best to speak to your doctor, before lowering your dosage further.
