The effect of it was exemplary and just maintained my BP but the cough is really my concern. Just this March, my follow up check up, I talked to my Doctor and raised my concern regarding the cough.

Increased BP with Twynsta 80/10

I am taking Twynsta 80/10 and my BP has been 120/80 for some time, but recently, I found that it increased to 140 over 100. But is Twynsta responsible for this? ## Hello, Dappyson! How are you?

What were the circumstances under which you checked your blood pressure? It can vary throughout the day, due to activity levels, foods you've eaten, other medications you take and etc. How often has it been elevated at those numbers?

painful swelling above knee twynsta

Thought I must have bumped my knee, as it was a little stiff and sore 2 days ago, but I didn't bump it on anything I recall. Yesterday, it increased to the point of not being able to bend it without extreme pain, and swelling has come on. Took 2 panadol, and the pain receded, if I didn't move it. Today it is worse, and I can't do almost anything. It's a painful struggle to get to the toilet, and sitting is out of the question. I am stuck on my bed for the greater part. If I move it at all, it takes around an hour for the pain to back off. There is a round pink blotch the size of a 50-cent piece slightly above the knee-cap, but I can gently move the kneecap with hand without a problem or pain. Severe pain when bending the knee, and then for hours after, or the pain gets wors
