Can I take Pepcid if taking Ziac

I've been taking the perscription drug Ziac for hypertension for 2 months. In the last week I have developed bad heartburn. Is it o.k. to take Pepcid Complete while taking Ziac? ## It is perfectly safe to take Pepcid or any other type of antacid with Ziac; however, you really should read the indications and interactions. There is a whole list of medications that cannot be mixed with Ziac. Pepcid or antacids are not one of them. ## That is actually incorrect, taking some antacids with Ziac may cause an elevation in your calcium levels, due to the calcium carbonate in the antacid, and they Hydrochlorothiazide in the Ziac. The FDA has issued prominent warnings about this danger. Additionally, Hydrochlorothiazide taken with magnesium in the Pepcid Complete could result in a laxative typ...

why backorder

Ziac 5/6.25 mg Mylan Generic l have been taking this medication about 3 yrs now and become therapeutic, but 2 months ago l went to walmart for refill and was given Unichem generic which l have being reacting badly to it. CVS told me they have it, l switched but only gave me 15 days worth and now saying is back ordered or may be discontiuned. What is going on with our healthcare, is it all about american company or the benefit patient derive. lf it is necessary to switch generic brands then they should evaluate the potent and effectiveness of the new generic before putting it on the market ## Unfortunately, under the Hatch-Waxman Act of 1984, the FDA allows generics to differ from the name brand by as much as plus, or minus 20% of the active ingredients. The FDA considers that to be an a...

I took ziac for a years and notice my pulse rate is low

Is Ziac medication will damage my heart in a long run, my pulse rate before was between 60 and 70. Now that I'm taking this Ziac for my high blood pressure my pulse rate is between 47 and 55 usually it's low in the morning. My ex-husband was taking Ziac also for his high blood pressure and his pulse rate become so low from 44 down to 38, he went to the emergency room right away and the doctor decided to put a pacemaker connected to his heart. ## Hello, Rose! How are you? It is normal for this medication to lower your pulse rate, somewhat, that's part of how it helps your blood pressure. It relaxes the blood vessels, but should not do actual damage. If they installed a pacemaker for your ex-husband, then it's likely they found that his going that low was due to some other...

M 503 Blue Round Pill

I was given blue round pills with M on one side and 503 on the other. This was mistakenly given to me by the pharmacy instead of my generic for Ziac which is white with 501 on it. It was labeled with warnings about alcohol and causing drowsiness ## ive been taking bisopr/hctz5/6.25 for a year and when i picked it up yesterday it was blue instead of the usual red ## Is BISOPROL/HCTZ 10/6.25 the same as BISOFUM/HCT 10/6/25? ## The tablet with the M 503 on it was the correct medication, it is also a generic for Ziac that's just manufactured by a different company. Learn more Ziac details here. And in regards to Sandi's questions, yes they are the same. The color doesn't matter and that is something that's entirely up to the whit and whim of the manufacturer, so it may chang...

Ziac

Is there any reason why name brand Ziac has been unavailable for the last 8 months. I was on the 10/6.5 doseage and it worked perfectly. The generic does not work as well with neglegible results. I contacted Teva and all they say is its on long term back order. ## I can't find any information on the shortage, they aren't required to report it to the FDA, so there is nothing listed there. Learn more Ziac details here. Have you tried any alternative medications?

medications interactions

Please help!!! Can you take Ziac and Adderall together?! Both of the medication labels indicate that they interact with one another but neither my doctor or pharmacist warned against?! ## Sometimes, your doctor and pharmacist have to weigh the benefits against the risks of using certain medications, together. The main reason they advise against using these together is because Adderall can actually raise your blood pressure. this site is not medical professionals, however, your doctor may not be concerned about your using them together if your blood pressure is not severely high or is under control. Have you tried asking them about your concerns?
