Inconsistent High Blood Pressure Medication

I used to have medical aid and was prescribed Co-Diovan 80 plus Twynsta 40mg. But then I got retrenched and had to receive other medication since the State does not keep these kind of medication. The State gives medication free of charge. I was prescribed a list of medication back since none were effective - my BP remained high. Most recently I got Atenolol 50mg plus Perindopril 4 plus Adco-Retic 2.5mg for water retention. My blood pressure remained non-consistent so I decided to rather go back to the Co-Diovan/Twynsta combination again. I must say that these medications are really expensive but since it is my health, I purchased them out of my own pocket. I have been using the Co-Diovan combination for the past 3 days but have noticed that my blood pressure ranges between 167/93 to 149...

Diovan 160 Mg Vs Losartan 100 25

Are the ingredients in Diovan 160 mg and Losartan 100-25 mg comparable if I run out of one can I switch to other? ## Hi Elaine, As far as comparing these drugs, I think it's not wise to assume that they have similar properties, since everyone can react differently to one or the other, despite having an equivalent dosage. If you're used to taking one or the other and have your doctors permission, I'd say it's fine to switch off between the two. However, at the same time I wouldn't necessarily anticipate having the same relief or results from two entirely different medications. On a side note: Eating whole foods that have little to no sodium and which are high in potassium and magnesium are solid dietary options for lowering blood pressure. These foods primarily includ...

Valsartan 80 mg and gaining weight in the belly

I just increased my valsartan from 48 mg to 80 mg and suddenly my stomach is much larger. Is anyone else experiencing this kind of weight gain? ## Bloating and fluid retention can be side effects of this medication, according to FDA reports. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache, and hypotension. How much have you gained? Are you on any other medications? How much larger is it? ## Yes I have experienced the same thing an I’ve been also feeling pains in my thighs . When I climb the stair or do some dusting I get out of breath an I never felt like that til I started taking these pills. I have to see my doc this month I want to stop taking these meds ## Valsartan sucks! I was on this and it was terrible.

small pinkish pill with d o on one side and n v r on the other

I'm trying to identify 2 small pinkish pills with a D O on one side and NVR on the other. Does anyone know what they are? ## It could be Diovan. It depends on the shape of the pill. ## Novartis lists this as being a 40mg Diovan pill, which contains the active ingredient Valsartan, it is most commonly used to treat, or prevent high blood pressure, and certain cardiac conditions. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. Is there anything else I can help with?

Long Term Effects Of Co-Diovan Bp Medication

I as put on Co Diovan BP medication 15 months ago after being admitted to ICU with what the cardiologist seemed to think was arterial fibrillation. He said it was exactly the right medicine for my problem. I have just come out of ICU again now after having a transient ischemic attack. I am now on 5 different medications. My question is could the Co Diovan which I was taking before, have had anything to do with the second problem. The specialist I saw now said no. My second question is what will the other medication I am on now do to me. I am onCarloc 12.5mg, Exforge 10 ml, Adco Simvastatin and aspirin. The cardiologist said I did not need aspirin, now I do. I also have to be very careful of any medication with sulphur in it as 10 years ago I got Stephen-Johnson Syndrome from a sulphur d...

Diovan And Triamterene/hctz

Is it safe to take Diovan and Triamterene/hctz together? I just failed a flight physical partly because the ME said these two drugs shouldn't be taken together!! I've been taking them together for about two years as prescribed by my PCP. Really want to get completely off meds but presume I'll need to go slowly. Any advise? Thanks ## It isn't that they shouldn't be taken together, but they can cause some problems, so your doctor must carefully consider the dosage and should be monitoring you regularly. Now, this information is only relevant to the medicine in general. When it comes to specific criteria, such as that related to a flight physical, it may be a prohibited combination, due to the problems that can be caused by using them together. The first is due the risk...
