Losartan and fatigue

Common Questions and Answers about Losartan and fatigue


Avatar_m_tn It should work. Mayo Clinic was involved in some of that testing and they used Diovan. the angiotensin drugs all work the same on fibrosis.
Avatar_f_tn I have constant tightness/heavy sensation in my chest along with pleuritic pain when I take a deep breath.and fatigue. I called my cardiologist <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> he told me to hold the Attenolol (on Plavix, 325mg Aspirin, losartan, Wellbutrin, Attenolol, Lunesta) My BP is fine. I am getting so discouraged- I thought I would feel better after the stents .
Avatar_f_tn My husband has severe shortness of breath on any exercise, fatigue, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> difficult-to-control high blood pressure. His latest echocardiogram was stated to be "normal" by a cardiologist but showed a low E:A ratio of 0.74, E peak of 0.572, A peak of 0.711, IVRT 134, DT 250. He had an angiogram stated to be "clear" but we haven't seen the report yet. His symptoms continue and are very scary.
Avatar_m_tn She currently takes Prevacid, Singulair, Cozaar (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>losartan</span>), Flovent <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Salbutimol for the Asthma, Reflux <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Fibromyalgia. She recently had an exam and catscan done which showed absolutely no problems in her brain, sinus or middle/inner ear. I'm wondering if anyone else have ever experienced anything like this or has any idea what might be causing it?
Avatar_m_tn I'm taking now <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>losartan</span> 50/12.5 htz <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> amlodipine 5mg. I'm on blood pressure pills over 30 years. My heart rate is slow, between 43 and 49. What do you recommend ?
Avatar_m_tn Also I do check my bp at home frequently some times its high like stated before <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> other times I have seen it 99/70 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> it flucuates between low <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> highall day, like my body fights the medication I am at my wits end. constantly dizzy feel like I am going to pass out (I have passed out several times now) feel short of breathe chronic fatigue and weekness.
16566098_tn?1449579073 I'm 44 and very healthy, 170 cm long, 48 kilo, genes with low bodyfat. Slightly <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> essentially elevated BP taking small beta blockers dose <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> a smallest <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>losartan</span> dose . For years I have had high TSH. From 4 to 11. Now it is 9.1. My T3 and T4 are normal and in a requested range of T4 11 (the interval is 8-14). T3 is 5,0 (the intervaller is 3,5-5,4). I have antibodies s-tpo-ak 56 (interval <34). I'm very confused. I don't have any symptomps. I feel good.
Avatar_m_tn I have Hashimoto's disease, which means I am HYPOthyroid. Before the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>losartan</span>, I was taking 90 mgs of Armour (which is T3 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> T4) daily. After just a few weeks on the losartan, I became hyperthyroid for a while, and my doctor lowered my dose of Armour (down to 60.) I have not noticed heat intolerance, but I am losing weight--slowly (which I don't mind as I am about 20 lbs over bikini-wearing level.) Never heard of the Marshall protocol, but I'm going to look it up!
170935_tn?1225374676 Give yourself time to adjust to this new rhythm. Try to figure out the triggers <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> avoid them. For me it's fatigue, stress, too much chocolate and I can't drink alcohol (my limit is 6 oz of a light beer). Each person is different but see if you find a pattern. That will help a lot. and stress seems to be pretty universal when it comes to PVC triggers. Do what you can to relax and ease your mind.
16467414_tn?1448308529 I am trying to come off Atenolol after 7 years <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> a few weeks ago a doctor put me on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>losartan</span> Potassium <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> did not tell me that though I asked if I should avoid anything. I found out what Hyperkalemia does to you the hard way. It can kill you if levels are very high, almost did me in! Symptoms of it are muscle fatigue, weakness, paralysis, abnormal heart rhythms, and nausea. It felt like someone poured hot lead in my body.
1210142_tn?1266080631 As for the losartan <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> carvedilol, dizziness <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> fatigue are two common side effects of the medications. These side effects are often related to either low blood pressures or low heart rate but can often be relieved through adjustments in the dose and timing of the medications. I would check and keep note of your blood pressure and heart rate frequently (and not if you are having any of the symptoms) using a home blood pressure monitoring kit that you can get at your local pharmacy.
Avatar_f_tn I have an upcoming meeting with her next Wednesday for my results but from everything that I told her she said that it definitely sounded like adrenal fatigue <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> that my womanly hormones are probably all over the place. So she scheduled me for the whole panel and results are pending with Diagnos-Techs™. In addition, I began asking my doctor to run all sorts of tests, whole iron profile, vitamin D, selenium, etc, RT3.
Avatar_f_tn My mother is diagnose with unstable angina a month a ago and the doctor asked us to monitor her blood pressure since she is discharged from the hospital her blood pressure is always normal but there are sometimes that her bp is 100/50 and last day her bp is 120/40 she is 71 years old <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> taking medications such as norvasc. lipitor,aspirin, imdur or ISMN <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>losartan</span>. Please help me is it normal for her age? Thank you...
Avatar_n_tn Virtually none of the tests you have done pertain to Marfan Syndrome (MFS). You should visit a doctor knowledgeable about MFS for a work-up with the correct tests. If MFS is suspected, you should regularly evaluate your aortic size through regular imaging (echocardiogram/CT/MRI), regardless of what the doctor says about it being unnecessary. A lot of doctors are ignorant, just as you pointed out.
Avatar_n_tn I experience anywhere from 100 to 800 PVC's each day and can get pretty depressed some days. Since 2004 I've been on numerous prescribed medicines, stopped coffee, cigarettes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> alcohol <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> sex (just kidding), all in an effort to reduce or remove the symptoms of PVC's. I don't want to get my hopes up but 2 days ago I went to the chemist(drug store) and bought some vitamins from the health section. One of the supplements I choose was coenzyme q10 (See http://en.wikipedia.
Avatar_m_tn Also I do check my bp at home frequently some times its high like stated before <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> other times I have seen it 99/70 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> it flucuates between low <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> highall day, like my body fights the medication I am at my wits end. constantly dizzy feel like I am going to pass out (I have passed out several times now) feel short of breathe chronic fatigue and weekness.
Avatar_n_tn I have talked to the neurosurgeon who did the surgery <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> he shrugged his shoulders <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> said I have no idea <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> sent me back to my neurologist. He gave me a series of injections in both shoulders and the pain stopped for a couple days but then came right back. Then we tried massage therapy, it helps but only for a short period.Then I have to go back to the massage therapist again and again, my insurance will not pay for that.
Avatar_n_tn Research reports favour different ones and contradict each other. Some favour Candesartan, others <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>losartan</span>; <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> still others Valsartan. They all have slightly different modes of action. Which would you choose? OR - would you favour a different class of BP meds? CNS; vasodilators; calcium channel blockers etc. Since I had a problem with ACE inhibitor, would I also have a problem with ARBs, given that their modes of action is similar?
902589_tn?1268152453 It can move from my forehead/eye area to the back of my head to my neck to the whole shebang, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> it'll be just a small pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> go to very severe pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> back to a slight pain and just basically goes all crazy on me lol It's really effecting my life. I'm a stay at home mom and taking care of 2 kids with constant headaches is starting to be beyond my endurance. Does anyone have any advice of what might be causing this or other medications I can try?
Avatar_n_tn Your doctor should run TPOab (thyroid peroxidase antibodies) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> TGab (thyroglobulin antibodies) to confirm or rule out Hashi's. However, both your FT3 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> FT4 are too low in the ranges, and you have hypo symptoms. You should talk to your doctor about an increase. Do you make sure to take all other meds 3-4 hours away from thyroid meds?
Avatar_n_tn Sometimes my whole arms go numb for no reason. Shortness of breath, me heart feels so tight, I get very dizzy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I am very fatigue <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> in a lot of pain at least 3-4 times a week I have these spells last sometimes for about 15-20 mins and sometime hours. (As I am writing this, I have to take take deep breaths, I feel like I am going to pass out). I don't know whats wrong and I am afraid to go back to the doctor. I can't live with the fact they believe I have Lupus. My grandmother died of Lupus.
Avatar_m_tn After my 3rd or 4th injection my neuropathy symptoms were completely gone and have been for over 2 mos. now. I am still suffering from fatigue <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> some other problems, but the breathlessness <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> all the burning, tingling, numbness and pain that i suffered for years is completely gone! You need to research b12, b1, b6 and read about malabsorbtion and why taking b12 oral supplements will not help. It is like a miracle vitamin for me and I will never be without it again.
Avatar_n_tn concentric left ventricular hypertrophy with normal contractility <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> systolic function but with impaired relaxation 2. dilated left atrium but with normal volume index 3. dilated proximal ascending aorta 4. aortic regurgitation 1+ 5.trivial mitral regurgitation and tricuspid regurgitation 6.normal pulmonary artery pressure.
Avatar_m_tn I do have the congenital disease, pectus excavatum, which is rare for girls, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> does cause me shortness of breath <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> quick fatigue with any sort of physical activity ( even walking up the stairs). Im high school I was an avid soccer player, and cross country runner, until I started passing out. Which is when I was diagnosed. I also get horrible nose bleeds about 3 times a week, my doctor suggested I try sleeping sitting up, which is really difficult haha.
Avatar_n_tn com/1007-9327/11/7560.pdf but other clinical trials with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>losartan</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> irbesartan are ongoing, both losartan and irbesartan are ARB-class meds(Angiotensic Reseptor Blocker). ================================================== Facit: I don't want to drop my plan altogether, but I'll "allow it more time to ripe".
Avatar_m_tn External medicine is not a focus for post treatment but it should be. These meds kick butt <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> you need a jump start too. 3 months of PT <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I am beginning to feel like a human again as far as mobility is concerned. Best to you. You shouldn't have to suffer from being zapped by the meds. Even swimming would help as hydro therapy helps. Can you do that?
Avatar_n_tn This indicates slow conversion. You might feel better with your levothyroxine lowered <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> a little T3 meds (Cytomel <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> generics) added in. How do you feel? Hypo of hyper symptoms?
1330929_tn?1317281207 The low pulse rate is par for the course with this drug, and is good because it means your heart is not working as hard. But this causes fatigue <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> a lack of energy. To counteract this, I usually drink a cup of coffee if my pulse is going too low. It will raise my pulse a bit and give me some energy without raising my BP too much. Also, it is good to take the meds at the same time each day.
Avatar_f_tn I'm on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>losartan</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Metoprolol. I have chronically low potassium and magnesium, even though I take supplements.
544292_tn?1268886268 Welcome Tram Warriors! Part 60. Wow. Over the years of recovery <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> reading about others, seeing others recover the main thing I have learned is that everyone's life is better without being a slave to Tramadol. You might be stuck and scared right now, but you can make the decision to get yourself off the hamster wheel of Tramadol dependency and even addiction. You don't have to live that way. There's lots of people here to help.
