Concerned about Hair Thinning

I have only been on HCTZ for 3 weeks because of high blood pressure readings, and I have seen a definite change in my hair. There is total lack of body, and even my husband has noticed the thinner quality of my hair. I am afraid to comb it for fear of seeing more hair on the comb, but at this stage it is more a total thinness. Is 3 weeks too short a time for this to happen? Previous to that I was on a different blood pressure med briefly, called Diltiazem, right after my foot/ankle surgery. But I don't see thinning of hair as being a side effect for that med. Was wondering if anyone else experienced this problem while on HCTZ and if so, was there anything that can be done to help. This is causing me a lot of stress. Haven't had this problem before and don't want this to get ... ...

I have high blood pressure and I am taking loprin 75. Is it right? Note: I used to be a drug addict - i.e. morphine (opiates). ## Did your doctor tell you to take this? From what I can find, it is listed as containing Aspirin, which is used for blood thinning and heart health, but will not help lower blood pressure.

pregnant and on blood pressure meds

Hi, I am pregnant and on blood pressure medication to regulate my high blood pressure. I recently heard that since I'm pregnant and on blood pressure medication I should also be on blood thinners to prevent a blood clot. Is this true? ## I have never heard of such a thing, as a matter of fact, from what I've read in pregnancy information, most women are just on a blood pressure medication, such as Labetalol and nothing else. Many of them have blood thinning properties of their own, so another blood thinner is rarely necessary, unless there is some other underlying condition, such as a clotting disorder, prior stroke, or etc. What has your doctor advised? ...

It can cause some minor blood thinning, as a side effect, but not like Aspirin or an actual blood thinner will, so it shouldn't be relief on to do such. It is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory and the FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and stomach irritation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you for the input. I have issues with nerve and inflamation I take diclofenic as needed but as i have read it does raise my blood pressure..Have been reading about the sodium type vs the potassium type. My doctors say there should be no impro... ...

Does digitek and ibuprofen thin your blood?

I'm on metoprolol and digitek. I had a cold so I took ibuprofen and pseudoephedrine. Would this cause thinning of blood? My nose is bleeding and eyes appear very bloodshot. ## Ibuprofen is an NSAID and while it may cause bleeding and change the way your blood forms platelets it does not thin your blood. This is pretty much a characteristic of most NSAIDs. Aspirin is the most common NSAID known to actually think the blood. ## Ibuprofen has been known to cause hemorrhage, so yes, it can cause blood thinning, and other issues, according to FDA reports. Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, and stomach irritation. How severe is the nosebleed? Are there the only medications you take? How much Ibuprofen did you take? Can you please post back with more specific detail... ...

would paxil and wellbutrin thin your blood

i take wellbutrin, paxil. kolatapin, and adderall could they thin your blood ## dose wellbutin thin your blood ?? ## No, that is not a normal side effect of these medications. The FDA lists them as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, insomnia, nervousness, and weight changes. Are you having an issue with blood thinning? Are these the only medication you are currently taking? What are your diagnosed medical conditions? There is really no way to say how any medication will affect anyone that tries it, so it can't be 100% ruled out, but it is unlikely that the listed ones would cause any dangerous blood thinning. ...

Need to avoid blood thinners. Ketopro? Lidocaine?

My neurosurgeon told me to avoid NSAIDS or anything that will thin my blood because I am scheduled for surgery in 6 days. I am in excruciating pain because I had to stop taking Voltaren. I have a topical solution that has Ketopro 10%, cyclobenzaprine 1% and lidocaine 5%. I can't get in touch with the mail order pharmacy. Does anyone know, if any of those will cause blood thinning?

can i take propoxyph with my blood pressure meds

I am currently taking Verapamil 300mg, lisinopril 20mg and avalide 300mg. Can i take propoxyph darv-n 100 with these meds? ## My perscription is propox/apap 100/650 1 or two tabs every 4 hours as needed. Other meds arel lovastatin,lotrel,hctz with one 325mg aspirin each day. Is this OK with the opiate above? ## I think the primary concern here would be the APAP, which stands for Acetaminophen, being coupled with the Aspirin that you are already taking. These can both result in blood thinning and combining the two could cause stomach irritation and ulcers. Using it in conjunction with the blood pressure meds means that some extra monitoring of your BP and pulse rate should be done, while you are using, since it can cause depression of these bodily cycles, which means you could end up wit... ...

I'm experiencing rectal bleeding with blood in my stool. Every time I use the restroom for the last week there's been blood in my stool, dark red spots of blood. ## Hello, Jake! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. If it is due to the Xarelto, it could take a week or two to fully stop and for things to return to normal. However, as listed by the NIH, there are other problems that could be cause this, so should make sure that you consult your doctor, for your own safety. Has there been a lot, or just small random spots? ## I was on Xarelto for 15 months but I had a bad fall and I had to stop because I can't stop bleeding from my vaginal area and it's been 3 weeks.
