Common Questions and Answers about Can i take pravastatin in the morning


Avatar m tn Is it safe to take Levothyroxine at <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> same time as <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pravastat<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>? Also, 2 months ago, I started to take my Levothyroxine at bedtime instead of in the morning as it is more convenient. and after a recent bloodtest my GP has reduced my Thyroxine to 75mcg instead of 100mcg. Could taking it at bedtime be the reason for this reduction? I will obviously ask my GP about this on my next visit to the surgery but would be grateful for any advice.
Avatar m tn I am always reading on this matter . Just <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> other day I saw something very interesting . I take <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pravastat<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> for high cholesterol. the article I read says that it is not uncommon for Levitra to have a much better result on those taking Lipitor . It may be worth me looking into changing having my cholesterol meds switched from pravastatin to Lipitor .
Avatar m tn About 8 weeks ago I started noticing a flutter or rapid heart rate when I woke. I haven't sleep well <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> several years so it has been common for me to rise around 3am with 4 to 5 hours sleep, and the time I have this rapid heart rate only occurs on waking. I do not feel any other symptoms. My blood pressure has generally been running around 120/75. sometime lower sometime higher. My diastolic is normally below 80 and rarely gets over 80.

Avatar m tn As advised by you on this forum recently, I got in touch with Hepatitiestechnologies through my friend in USA(I live <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> Nigeria) and got <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> drugs(all 4 of them) I received it 3 days ago and I have started using it already, albeit started with a low dose of 1 per meal, morning and night daily and graduating to higher doses. Now, pls enlighten me on these drugs. My latest USS shows enlarged liver, but normal architecture and others.
Avatar n tn However, I can tell you that if I take calcium supplements 2,000 mg daily - two 500 mg pills once in the evening and once in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> morn<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>g per day that they are greatly reduced. I <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>can</span> always tell if I didn't take my calcium because I will start getting the charlie horses worse. I'm also on high blood pressure medication. there is one more thing I want to mention. After I started taking high blood pressure mediation, the charlie horses got worse. they started when I was a teenager.

211940 tn?1267884866 before all this occurred and even after some what enjoyed living, traveling, dancing, gardening, being with friends and family to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> fullest. But now I do as much as I <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>can</span> do. I had a hysterectomy at age 28 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> 1980, when I went from delivery to the operating room because of hemorrhaging. I was diagnosed with osteoporosis back in 1998.But it wasn't until I'd broken my arm, my foot, and then a rib that this was found and since then it has only gotten worse not better. And I've broken more ribs.
Avatar n tn pravastatin (20mg) after a left-heart cath showed a 50% luminal loss <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> distal part of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> mid LAD (too small - 1 mm <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> size - for percutaneous intervention) and mild myocardial bridging in the second obtuse marginal branch of the left circumflex artery.
Avatar f tn Anyway, after two hours my blood sugar was at 350 (that's the highest i've ever seen it) so I took 2 more of my metformin. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> morn<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>g I woke up with abdominal pain and diarrhea. I ate a 1/2 of a oatmeal cook and after a few seconds I had to go to the restroom. As I was using the restroom I notice 3 yellowish oval shaped stool, I went ahead a examined it. When I sliced it the middle I saw it was white inside and the texture of the yellowish oval shaped stool was almost fatty, liver like.
535089 tn?1400677119 Ronald Siegel, a psychopharmacologist at UCLA said 'the widespread testing and reliance on tell-tale traces of drugs <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> urine is simply a panic reaction invoked because <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> normal techniques for controlling drug use haven't worked very well. the next epidemic will be testing abuse." Byrd Labs has in its possession an internal document from the Syva Company, makers of the widely used EMIT test.
Avatar f tn You have too powerful a mix for most of us to relate to, but I can say high dose (the number is patient dependent) of Metoprolol (any beta blocker) can cause some of the side effect you describe. I have taken up to 200 mg of Metoprolol a day and that level gives me some dizzy spells upon a sudden change in my activity level, and it also causes some general fatigue in me.
Avatar n tn 5mg. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>can</span> I take Tramadol tonight <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> place of my 2nd Vicodin dose or should I not take both <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> same day, no matter how many hours are between-? Thanks in advance!
1231791 tn?1289759826 Do they have you on anticoagulants or an aspirin a day to reduce <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> risk of clotting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> your body since you are <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> that risk group? I think personally i would find a new doctor if they told me that they haven't a clue and find one that does have a clue. Sometimes we have to really get proactive with our bodies because we only have one and have to search out the right doc that can make enough time for us to find the cause and not just shrug their shoulders.
Avatar m tn I am 56 yrs. old and since last summer I have been waking up <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> morn<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>g with joint pain.

Avatar f tn It is now April 1st of 2010, I still have a headache. At this time I was on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pravastat<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> for Cholesterol, I have been on this for about 2 years. I have been on Zoloft 100 mg for 15 yrs. I thought it was nothing didn't take anything thought it would go away, WRONG!. I have had migraines for probably 20 years. This is not a migraine. I have taken Tylenol, didn't work, took Advil, didn't work, took Ibuprofin, didn't work, so I went to the doctor.
1128331 tn?1259946848 Last year I had to be rushed to ER after taking anti inflammatory for fibro, my BP tanked went down to 70/40 As well, as broke out <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> hives. Suladanc (sp?) I believe was <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> name of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> anti inflam med. While taking a cholesterol medication several years ago, my muscles became so extremely sore, I thought I was dying. I'm currently taking; pravastatin 80 mg 1x per day and Cilostazol 100 mg 2x per day.
Avatar n tn Stress keeps me awake at night. I have high colesterol, but take <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pravastat<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> 80mg, Niacin 500mg, and aspirin 320mg daily, with this, my total chol is 129, LDL 80, HDL 33, TRIG 79. I have a hard time keeping the HDL up, can't take more niacin, I flush easily. I had really severy astma as a child, requiring cotisone shots very often, I finally outgrew it in my late 30's.

343765 tn?1202526132 I have been reading post and searching the net and found several sites that talk about some of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> meds that I take. Some of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> side effects of them are heart palps. I go to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> doc Thursday so I might should ask. I can't understand if that is a side effect why he would put me on it. He is a good doc and tries to help me with my issues as much as he can. I TRUST HIM!!!! I take 200mgs of Metropolol, 6mg of Xanax, and 40 mgs of pravastatin. Someone mentioned a calcium blocker.
Avatar n tn I take 50mg Atenolol <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> morn<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>g, and 25mg at night. Anyway, I also had a swallowing induced component to my arrhythmia, and had read that several people worked past this problem by losing weight. But how, with a slow heart beat? Diet. Not some ludicrous fad Diet, just a significant reduction in the volume of food that I ate.
Avatar m tn the scariest symptom is a slight burning sensation <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> left side of my face. I decide to keep taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> drug, and most of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> symptoms go away. However, so does the numbness in my toe after about 3 days. So, I guess the medicine is working? But…that quickly? Is it really reducing my cholesterol within 3 days, to the point where my toe no longer feels numb from HIGH CHOLESTEROL? Hmmm, well I’m no doctor, so I don’t really get it.
Avatar f tn I go in and out of afib and have never had a rapid heart, just shortness of breath that keeps me from running while I'm <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> afib. I am 71 but my heart is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> great shape except for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> afib. I was <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> afib for about six weeks straight this spring (the first time I noticed it) and then went in and out on about a weekly basis in July and August. Stayed in about a week at a time, then back out for about a week.
Avatar m tn Funny, because I held off taking statins prior to treatment because I thought I'd have a better chance with a liver that was taxed less, as statins <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>can</span> tax <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> liver somewhat. If I knew about <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> study then, I would have taken statins prior to treatment, both for my original intent -- lower cholesterol -- as well as the potential to make tx more effective. Currently I'm on a statin (lipitor) and it has dramatically lowered my cholesterol levels.
Avatar n tn Ask doctor to change <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> medicine. I got a lot of cramps, screamed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> middle of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> sleep. Unable to straight up my legs next morning. That was Simvastatin caused it. After that, the dr change to Fluvastatin. No cramp but developed rashes! Now, I don't have to take any statin.
Avatar f tn But it seems to be having a positive effect, if I understand correctly. I <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>can</span> see that I have a lot of holes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my English vocabulary. It would be really nice, if you could help me out.
Avatar f tn 5 mcg twice a day. then after a few days take 5 mcg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> morn<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>g and 5 mcg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> afternoon. Otherwise some people can fell ill with side effects of just jump starting your body. Just my opinion. Others may have a different opinion.
21064 tn?1309312333 Acebutalol (sectral) 100mg (half of the prescribed dosage), seems to be breaking the multiple pvc patterns I've developed. If I take <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> other half later <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> day, it seems to reduce <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> pvc frequency, and actually I've had some pvc free minutes today.!!!!!! Jump for joy. Hoo-ra. I'll take any minute I can get without pvcs. Plus, I don't feel as fatigued on acebutalol as I did on the other beta-blockers. (that was my main reason for taking the half dose, plus I'm stubborn).
Avatar n tn Any help I get I am thankful for. i have had several health issues <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> past.
