2 Replies RSS
I was wondering if it was ok to take those 3 meds at the same time? Lisinopril 10mg, Amlodipine 10mg, and Atorvastatin 20mg? ## They can be taken together, as long as your doctor approves.

How are you doing taking this combination? Are you on any other medications? ## I havent had any side effects at all actually i feel a lot better ...

Can amlodipine 5mg, losartan 100mg, hydrochlorothiazide 25mg and atorvastatin 10mg be taken together, being they are all high blood pressure meds? Thanks for any info. ## Hello ,Tatis! How are you?

I am 55 and for last 1 year I have been taking Telma 40 and Amlodact 5 in the morning Atorva 5 at night. Now I am to face acute knee problem that benumbed me and prevents smooth walking, A friend of mine advises me to take Cal Mag D and stop Amlodac 5. Can I stop it and opt for some other medication? My blood right now is 146/86. ## Hello, Professor B! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. However no, you shouldn't stop taking any of your prescribed medications, unless your doctor instructs you to do so. The Cal Mag D is just a nutritional supplement and if it's okay with your doctor for you to take it, there would be no reason to stop a medication due to taking it, anyway. Have you consulted your doctor, yet? ...

when is the expiration of this medicine
1 Reply RSS
amlodipine issued dec 8,2009 is it expired already? atorvastatin issued sept 16, 2010 is it expired already ## If you received them from a pharmacy, in the type of bottles that the pharmacy's use, then the expiration date is generally one year from the date it was dispensed. Thus, if they filled the Amlodipine on 12/08/09, the expiration would have been 12/07/10. Atorvastatin filled 09/16/10 would have en expiration of 09/15/11. They do not get dangerous after that date, but they do start to lose effectiveness and may not work as well at treating the relevant medical conditions.

EQ Base meaning

What does EQ base stands for? Example is CADUET AMLODIPINE BESYLATE; ATORVASTATIN CALCIUM EQ 5MG BASE; EQ 10MG BASE.

Hi, I took 20 mg Omeprazole, 10 mg Atorvastatin, 25 mg Hydrochlorot, and 5 mg Amlodopine at about 4:00. Then at about 6:30 I forgot I took them and I took all 4 of them again!

The possible symptoms listed include dizziness, drowsiness, nausea and palpitations. ...

I discarded the amplodipine- why the dictors prescribed it together with the ramipril, if both do the same job and both have bad side effects? I also stopped the simvastatin- so far for a week and I feel better, but another doctor now replaced with with atorvastatin 20 mg. which I will have to start taking, but this one is also known for bad side effects and I was also prescribed a beta blocker- Egiloke 25 mg (Metrprolol tartrate) as replacement of the amplodimine. I am worried about the side effects: my colesterols levels and blood... ...
