Common Questions and Answers about Cozaar side effects forum

cozaar

In your forum I see that you recommend Zestril over Cozaar, should we switch? What are the side effects of Zestril? I also see mention of supervised cardiac rehabilitation programs in your forum. What is a cardiac rehabilitation program? Is this something we should look into. Is there any other treatment strategy we should be pursuing? What is the signficance to the .2cm growth in th LV? Why the difference in readings between the echocardiagram and the MUGA?
be treated with ACE-I if they tolerate the side effects. If not, then Cozaar is a good alternative at this time. Neither ACE-I nor A-II should increase your LV wall thickness. Both agents also decrease blood pressure which would reduce LV wall thickness as BP is controlled. E.F. is a relative assessment of left ventricular function since the tests that measure E.F. are not highly accurate so we view E.F. as more of an estimate than a hard fact.

i have been taking effexor for about four years and i find the drug has made me a new person,but if i miss a dose i have severe withdrawls.it feels like i am living in hell.but when i get back on track i feel great.since i started taking these meds, i have put on 40 pounds and i eat very little.and if i try to wean my self down to a lower dose the side effects start all over again.my doctor told me i will probably be on this for the rest of my life.
Plan is to further increase Coreg dosage? In your forum I see that you recommend Zestril over Cozaar, should we switch? What are the side effects of Zestril?

I am doing well. I am taking Cozaar(25mg) and Coreg(25mg bid). My concern is Cozaar may replace the coughing side effect with a serious increase in left ventricular wall thickness. Is it really true? My E.F. is 52% From today I have stopped lanoxin. Is E.F. reliable in my situation who has been taking drugs? My E.F. was 50.40,38. Can I exercise (jogging)?
I also noticed a rise in blood pressure and it seemed to coincide when I upped the Procrit dose. And sure enough hypertension is listed among Procrit's side effects: http://www.healthscout.com/rxdetail/1/104/2/main.html No free lunch with these drugs. Let us know if if you find something that works without too many sides.

I'm on 40mg daily since 11 Sept. and trying to tolerate the side effects. How long will it take for the side effects to go away? I also take 100mg of tenormin and 25mg of hydrochlorothiazide daily. Thank you for your help. This is a wonderful forum and the info is greatly appreciated.
why do most doctors refuse to admit the lingering side effects of Taxol. I'm thankful that it is effective in killing cancer, but I'm suffering since I had Taxol & I'm not imagining things. This is miserable. Believe me, I'm the opposite of a hypochondriac, but my oncologist treats me like I am one. He says that the side effects should be gone by now and it's probably just arthritis. Is there anything that can be done to lesson this pain?
, was previously approved to treat seizures, as well as pain from damaged nerves that can happen in people with diabetes (diabetic peripheral neuropathy) and in those who develop pain following the rash of shingles. Side effects of Lyrica including sleepiness, dizziness, blurry vision, weight gain, trouble concentrating, swelling of the hands and feet, and dry mouth. Lastly, Paxil can also be associated with weight gain. Again as stated before Wellbutrin has a lower incidence of weight gain .
I have similar problem of BP control. Was on Cozaar also but throat side effects caused a halt. Also tried atenolol first 50mg then 25 but again side effects (irregular beats). Doc. attempted to put me on Cardizem and later Verapamil but an EP suggested not to. Finally the GP recommended Diovan 80mg and it is lowering BP but also with some throat side effects (hoarseness and some swallowing difficulty). However being diabetic with LVH he insists on the Diovan.
I am about 8 months post Tx, I am so happy that I have cleared the virus, almost all of the side effects disappeared. But unfortunatelly I am suffering now from high Blood Pressure, most of the time I measure BP the results are: 135-140 / 90-99. Does anyone know if there is any relation between the high Blood Presuure and the Hepatitis C ?
A-II antagonists are utilized only if patients do not tolerate the ACE inhibitors due to side effects. Future research may show that A-II antagonists are equivalent to ACE inhibitors for heart failure management. However, this is not currently known to be true. In deciding which one is better, you must ask yourself how uncomfortable the cough was. If this was a significant problem, then Cozaar is likely the better choice. Don't worry about the bradykinins otherwise.
Hi. I have two questions: 1) Do I need surgery soon? I have recently been diagnosed with an aneurysm of my aortic root of 4.8cm and also my ascending aorta of 4.9cm. My aortic valve is trileaflet and still in good shape. My ascending aorta is 1.9 x the diameter of my descending aorta. - I'm a 41 year old male - 6'2" and 210 Lbs. - I'm athletic (or I was before my diagnois) - I do NOT have marfans syndrome, but apparently a connective tissue disorder.
I do feel very tired late in the day and have a bit of dizziness when I turn my head to either side quickly. Can you tell me about other side effects of these drugs? Is constipation one of them? Also, if I am symptom-free for an extended period of time, what is the likelihood that my heart specialist will reduce the dosage or eliminate one of these drugs?
Good health can be hard to define, all medications have drawbacks and side effects,if you read all the possible side effects of medication I think we would all throw them in the waste basket, headaches can be debilitating when no physical organic cause can be found.
I am cautious about using drugs if there are alternatives. I am reading a lot of complaints from people with side effects, tiredness, depression, nightmares, etc on this drug. Are these people the 1-5% the drug company claim or is the problem more widespread? At the same time, I have devoured mountains of material on CHD and find an alarming difference of opinions between researchers and even between cardioligists themselves about whether beta blockers are a good step.
drugs DO work for a lot of people, and if they can get such benefit without debilitating side effects, more power to them. In my case, every rotten drug they've tried on me had perverse impacts. Attenolol, Accupril, Clonodine, Toprol, and a standard diuretic (hydrochlorothiazide) all did damage. Both Clonodiine and Toprol actually caused dangerous spikes in my BP. Toprol drove my (formerly excellent) lipid measurements skyhigh ... all in about 8 weeks or so (e.g.
Not one other side effect. I was also on Lipitor a year ago...It really worked, and I had zero side effects from that. Hope this helps!
These particular type of connective tissue disease are not life threatening , while powerful drugs used to treat them can have devastating effects. May I ask have you been tested for the HLA-B 27 gene? Altace is an ace inhibitor that has shown excellent results in increasing your EF, I know someone that it has brought their EF from 40% to 55% in just 6 months. Good luck and Merry Christmas.
Then I tuned in real close to the symptoms of my seizures and it was easy to distinguish even if I was standing. It all stinks! A dr. on this forum or the neuro forum recommended trying to get a TTT with concomitant EEG. See if that is possible. I was diag. for NCS by the TTT and my IST was confirmed through it (the IST had been seen on a holter just prior to TTT). The EEG's kept coming back normal until I had a VEEG, which is an EEG done in the hospital while being watched by video.
Within the last 30 days I have put on 10lbs. Stomach is very distended. Lots of gas hands very swollen so is face. I asked my Dr if these side effects could be because we added the new med, he said the swollen stomach is because I am overweight( I don't like my new endo anymore) I wanted to cry, I am so careful with diet, I could except if I over ate, I don't.
but that put me in worse shape, I woke up with a extremly fast heart rate, one of the side effects from the med.. I have tried to figure out everything that triggers them and there is nothing that I think of.. yesteday I had about 10 pvcs, the day before about 100. I basically ate and did al the same things!!! I know how you feel, you always think that one day one for these pvcs will get you and you will go itno a fatal arrythmia...
There are no negative effects on your body; the only problem is some side effects for some. If you don't have side effects, I think there's no harm in staying on the BB, it all depends on your choice, and of course on your Dr's opinion.
Others feel they may not be as mentally sharp, which may be related to the fatigue. In others they have no effect. Some also notice a difference in side effects between beta-blockers -- so if one causes effects in you, another may not. With respect to exercise, I cant really recommend a specific course without knowing you and the history of your HCM including any history of sudden death in your family.
25 mg of atenolol and found out thru another forum that I am not the only one on such a low dose due to tolerance/side effects. My EP says it's a legitimate dose. All I know is that I can't live w/o it!
As mentioned by Tarea, avoiding the triggers may help. A headache journal may or the migraine tracker in this forum may help identify the triggers so that you could avoid the attacks. If medications are not helping, you could also try complementary and alternative medicine such as biofeedback therapy, acupuncture and other relaxation techniques, which have been effective also to other migraine sufferers. Take care and do keep us posted.
On the dose your on there is no risk. Again the effects are not from BP or heart rate effects but more from the effects on the hormones in the body. I hope this helps.
But thanks God I do not get any side effects with the toprol (today is my second day with it; I hope it stays that way). From what I've read, sinus tachycardia is not life threatening and nothing needs to be done unless symptomatic (I don't know why my Dr. makes take this med., but at least it slows my pulse down to 85 bpm and I don't have the side effects). Now I wonder if I'll have to take this for the rest of my life, may be I should get a second opinion or go to an electrophysiologist.
