high blood pressure now mysteriously low

Have had high Bp for 6 years, been on Maxzide 37.5 and has been controlled. Now I have ideal or low blood pressure out of nowhere. On call Dr says not to take Bp med so i didn't. Still low or ideal. What could cause BP to be low suddenly? Constant headache too. ## Are you on any other medications? Are you dehydrated? Both are possible issues that could cause it to be low, according to FDA reports. What are your current readings? How low is it? The headache is a bit concerning. There are so many issues that can cause that. ## I found it was the Ativan that I was put on for anxiety was causing really low BP, 90/60. I stopped the Ativan. I'm gonna try a natural anxiety med. Hoping it works..

Shortage Of Generic Maxzide

My pharmacey told me there was a shortage and they don't know when they can get some. They called around and found some at a competing Drug store. Whats up? ## Maxzide contains Triamterene and Hydrochlorothiazide, it is commonly used to treat high blood pressure and cardiac conditions. Shortages of this drug combination were reported to the FDA and the ASH-SP on April 20, 2011 by Sandoz, Watson and Mylan Pharmaceuticals, however, they didn't give a reason for the shortage. It does, however, appear to affect all available dosages. Mylan and Watson estimate that their supply should be back on the market late this month, Sandoz said they should have the problem rectified early in May. Are there any questions? ## Well it is mid May and Target says it can't get this drug and I sh...

triamterene 75 mg

Has anyone else experienced leg cramping all night long with this medicine. It's like a charlie horse cramping and it goes every 20 seconds all night long. I also take cozaar. ## Yes, I have experienced charlie horse cramping in my legs since using this medication. Not often but yes. ## IVE BEEN HAVING THE CHARLIE HORSE CRAMPS IN MY LEGS TOO....I THOUGHT IT WAS JUST ME... ## I just checked the monograph and this is not listed as a common/normal side effect. You may want to speak to the prescribing doctor regarding this, there are other options that could be prescribed that may not cause the same problem. A lot of time, nightime leg cramps are caused by a loss of Potassium in the body, however, this is SUPPOSED to be a Potassium sparing diuretic, so it really makes no sense. ## This ...
