diovan

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.
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 and 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 .
My husband has severe shortness of breath on any exercise, fatigue, and 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.
She currently takes Prevacid, Singulair, Cozaar (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>losartan</span>), Flovent and Salbutimol for the Asthma, Reflux and 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?
I'm taking now <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>losartan</span> 50/12.5 htz and amlodipine 5mg. I'm on blood pressure pills over 30 years. My heart rate is slow, between 43 and 49. What do you recommend ?

Give yourself time to adjust to this new rhythm. Try to figure out the triggers and 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.
As for the losartan and carvedilol, dizziness and 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.
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 and taking medications such as norvasc. lipitor,aspirin, imdur or ISMN and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>losartan</span>. Please help me is it normal for her age? Thank you...
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.
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 and alcohol and 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.

I have talked to the neurosurgeon who did the surgery and he shrugged his shoulders and said I have no idea and 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.
Research reports favour different ones and contradict each other. Some favour Candesartan, others <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>losartan</span>; and 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?
It can move from my forehead/eye area to the back of my head to my neck to the whole shebang, and it'll be just a small pain and go to very severe pain and 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?
Your doctor should run TPOab (thyroid peroxidase antibodies) and TGab (thyroglobulin antibodies) to confirm or rule out Hashi's. However, both your FT3 and 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?
Sometimes my whole arms go numb for no reason. Shortness of breath, me heart feels so tight, I get very dizzy and I am very fatigue and 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.
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 and some other problems, but the breathlessness and 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.
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 and 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.

com/1007-9327/11/7560.pdf but other clinical trials with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>losartan</span> and 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".
I do have the congenital disease, pectus excavatum, which is rare for girls, and does cause me shortness of breath and 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.
This indicates slow conversion. You might feel better with your levothyroxine lowered and a little T3 meds (Cytomel and generics) added in. How do you feel? Hypo of hyper symptoms?
I'm on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>losartan</span> and Metoprolol. I have chronically low potassium and magnesium, even though I take supplements.
Welcome Tram Warriors! Part 60. Wow. Over the years of recovery and 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.
From your description, you would seem to have some variety of SVT. Remember that most patients will show a completely normal EKG when SVT is not occuring. Also, Many hearts will appear structurally normal as well. Until you can receive care for it, learn to control it as Michelle suggests. Vagal maneuvers like Valsalva are very effective in terminating an episode. One formum member reported headstands were effective in stopping hers.
why do so many people retain severe fatigue related sx for years after SVR? and other symptoms as well?
Amlodipine, Benazepril, Bumetanide, Carvedilol, Digoxin, Dipyridamole, Doxazosin, Enalapril, Hydralazine, Lisinopril, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>losartan</span>, Metoprolol and Hydrochlorothiazide, Nifedipine, Procardia XL, Propafenone, Ramipril, Sotalol and Verapamil. At any rate, he should discuss this with his doctor.
It is my experience with PVCs that they wax and wane, disappear and reappear for no particular reason. I found that taking a beta blocker atenolol and a ARB <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>losartan</span> to help keep my B/P under control has worked wonders in regards to PVCs, they are almost non existent nowadays, dont know how long it will last, but enjoying it for now. Hope everyone gets relief soon. Take care.
I am on Atenolol...and a healthy dose...50 mg in the morning..and 50 mg at night. I have read posts here where people really have trouble with it, but I just love it. It keeps my heartrate down---and (most...well...some..) of the time it helps with the palpitations. I had some dizziness when I first started taking it, but thats it. 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!
