Rapid Pulse from Zanidip

Hi I was on Amloc 10mg daily for years and my BP was well controlled. Over the years though i started experiencing serious hair loss. I was put on Zanidip 10mg daily. After 3 weeks my doctor decided to increase the dose to 20mg daily as my BP was higher than it should be. After commencing the increased dosage i started experiencing rapid heart beat and palpitations. dizziness, breathlesness and a feeling that I had an elephant on my chest . Doctor suggested splitting the dose and taking 10mg in the morning and 10 at night. This has improved the situation but is not perfect. As both Zanidip and Amloc are Calcium Channel blockers is there reason for the new side effects since changing. ## It is always possible to experience new side effects, when you start taking a different medication, y...

Side effects of this mix of medications...

My husband is taking the following medications: Olmetec 40mg + Zanidip 10mg + Plavix 75mg + Lasix 40mg + Cartia aspirin 100mg; 1 each morning. He is also taking: 2 Panadol Osteo 5mg x 3 times daily + 1 Pregabalin 25mg + 1 Vytorin 10/40mg at night. All prescribed by his GP. He had a triple bypass in 2014; stents 1 in Feb, 2 in Nov 2016; Radical prostectomy for cancer in 2006; Radiation for secondary cancers in 2009; Neurosurgery for a subdural hemorrhage in 2013. He has had breathing problems and used inhalers off and on for 4 years (is now off these). He does have asbestos fibers in his lungs, but thankfully no major problems there. But he is having problems with tiredness throughout the day and is constantly sleeping. Is this due to the mixture of drugs he is on now?

Zanidip And Swollen Ankles

Took Zanidip for only 11 days and stopped (under dr advice) due to severe swelling in my feet, ankles and lower legs. So much so that my shoes did not fit and it feels like the whole area is bruised.

Any advice or ideas? ## Zanidip contains the active ingredient Lercanidipine, which is a calcium channel blocker, used to help lower blood pressure and treat certain cardiac conditions. They are known to cause edema in some people and, when it does, the medication must be discontinued and they usually have to switch to something else. If yours is not improving, you may need to take a diuretic, to help your body expel the excess fluid, because...

ZIAK ZANIDIP can they cause mouth ulcers?

I am not sure whether the allergy I have could be caused by the intake of Ziak and/or Zanidip. I continually have a sore mouth something similar to cold sores, I also tend to get a sore throat, twice I have had my tongue swell during the night which was very stressful and i have itchiness on my body in patches even my scalp itches which my GP has informed me is an allergy. Could the Ziak; Zanidip or Cymgen 60mg cause these allergies???? I take the Ziak in the morning and the Zanidip at night as prescribed by the doctor. ## Hello, Lynne! How are you? Cold sores only occur outside the mouth, on other areas of the face, such as the surface of your lips, edges or your lips, the chin area and etc. The ones on the inside of the mouth are canker sores and many medications can cause them, thoug...

Lercanidipine hydrochloride side effects

I have very painful legs when in bed. It's so painful that I'm not able to sleep. I've been taking this med for four weeks now. Is this a common problem when taking Lercanidipine? Thanks. ## Hello, Sally! How are you? If it's only while you're in bed, then it may be due to Restless Leg Syndrome, rather than the medication. The U.S. FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination and hypotension. Are you on any other medications? Does the pain ease, if you move your legs, or get up and walk around?
