Rosalie Says:

I have another question pending about discontinuing Indapamide, with my doctor's permission. However, I discovered that the palpitations I was experiencing every morning started after taking Felodipine 10mg. I've taken this for many years and I'm not sure why I have this side effect now. This is the second day without taking it, and so far, I've had no palpitations. My blood pressure is normal to low normal and I check it daily. I also take Irbesartan and Atenolol along with Spironolactone for lowering blood pressure. I take Levothyroxine (88 mcg, 5 days a week-it was lowered two years ago). I've lost 50 pounds and at have least 40 more to lose. I'll be 72 in a matter of days and, with the weight loss, I feel that I need to be more cautious with the medications I take. I started experiencing palpitations in my thirties and I'm alarmed that this drug may have caused them to be more frequent. I feel achy and emotional this morning, so I would like to know what the side effects could be from stopping Felodipine (and Indapamide) so I can be aware of why I am feeling this way.

Hello, Rosalie! How are you doing?

Stopping these types of medications could result in blood pressure and heart rate elevations, as reported by the FDA. However, since you are on other blood pressure medications, it would be extremely rare for you to experience levels that would go high enough to put you in danger.

Being achy, emotional, experiencing diarrhea, headache and a general feeling of unease can all be withdrawal effects.

Has there been any change?
