Avatar n tn I called my doc up and he prescribed me not Losartan but valsartan, which is a similar drug. He put me on a very light dose (80 mg/day), about <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>half</span> of what someone my body size would be taking in Dr. Dietz' study on adolescents this fall. Fast forward 6 months - I had my follow-up echo last Monday. Thank the Lord - no growth. All my numbers were "identical to last time," according to my cardio. That is unusual because my aorta had been growing up until then.
1210142 tn?1266080631 Stopped Lisinopril for a little bit and felt much better- unfortunately my blood pressure went a little up. Then my PCP substitute it for Losartan- have been taking this drug/25 mg/ for a week and feel extremely dizzy and nauseated. The cardiologist suggested to cut Carvbedilol in half/so now I am taking 3.125 twice a day instead of 6.25 and my chest pain almost disapear. I don't know if Losartan can cause this or just switching drugs my body needs more time...?

Avatar n tn He's probably on one or thre other. They have a short <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>half</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>life</span>. If you asre on them start taking them before bedtime rather than in the morning. These will help to keep the blood vessels open and improve circulation. A magnesium and calcium supplement will help as well as omega-three fish oils. A gram of L-Arginine before bedtime in juice will help a bit. This induces relaxation of the blood vessels, which improves circulation. Get the flavored kind in a health food store. Not the capsules.
Avatar m tn First of I'm 22 years of age, male about 6'2 kinda muscular 228 pounds, and pretty active. I've been diagnosed with hypertension and was put on losartan 50mg/hctz 12.5mg by my cardiologist when my blood pressure was running about 150-160/80-90 consistantly about 2 months ago. When I first started taking it worked pretty decent in a few days it was around 130 range/80, I stayed active I played pick up basketball, walking/jogging and working out occasionally.
Avatar n tn I'm now on 25 mg twice a day of Atenolol, my pick. I like its longer <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>half</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>life</span>, as I have chosen to take a normal (not slow release) twice a day. If I miss a does I am totally unaware of it until I open my pill case and say "*)&^()" I forgot to take my pills (yes I take other stuff too). I take BB and Calcium Channel blocker to slow my HR driven by AFib. So my HR goes up when I miss a BB, but it come back in line as soon as I get back on schedule.
Avatar m tn and in decent shape. Diabetes is rampant in my family with both my parents and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>half</span> of my grandparents and plenty of my uncles and aunts are and were diabetic so I know genetics is a big factor here to.

902589 tn?1268152453 My daughter is now 4 months old and after her i didn't have any more migraines. In the last week and a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>half</span> however, I have a constant headache. it's there when i first wake up, and I'll take medicine(ibuprofen or tylenol) and the headache will go away for about an hour or if I'm lucky 2 hours and then it's back. Nothing has changed in my life except for the new baby but she's 4 months old and this has only started recently?
Avatar m tn You mention breathlessness but believe me, without this drug you will feel vrery uncomfortable and be gasping for air. Taking its <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>half</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>life</span>, 2.5mg lasts just over 24 hours and I forgot to take my pill one morning. In just 2 hours I was panting like a horse just finished a race and felt terrible. Within 20 minutes of taking the medication I felt comforable again. When being held back by a strong beta blocker, keeping fit is quite difficult.
Avatar m tn Hey I'm 22 years old I'm currently taking blood pressure medications(losartan 100mg/hctz, spirolactone 25mg) it's decently controlled averaging about 135/75 resting. I have LVH(left ventricular hypertrophy) size of 1.5 ......I up in sports, I'm in good shape I exercise everyday for 40 mins...I am half African American. I'm wonder what is the probability I can live a normal life with these problems so early on? How rate is it for me to have this, this young?

Avatar m tn After about 3 weeks, for the first time in my life, I felt ever so slight chest discomfort or pain and shortness of breath as if my lung capacity was suddenly cut in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>half</span>. My bp with 50mg losartan was still high around 130/90 to 140/90. Chest discomfort occured daily since then so I went back to the doctor and he ordered me to have full diagnostic tests. He changed my meds and prescribed 40mg olmesartan while waiting for the results to ease the symptoms.
Avatar m tn I had HBP after the treatment but not so high and I fixed it with a change of style <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>life</span> (mostly aerobics). Now, I am trying with my doc to find the right meds , beside aerobics. I wonder if there is any connection between the high blood-pressure and the HCV, I was stage 2-3 and grade 2-3 before treatment, I am now 4 years after treatment.. I would be pleased for any good information.
Avatar f tn Given you problems ask you doctor about Metoprolol and Atenolol beta blockers, both cost only pennies a day to take. I now use Atenolol and like its longer half life.
Avatar m tn I'm 22 years old, Male, currently taking 100mg Losartan/Hctz 25mg for hypertension, briefly I'm 6'3 230 pounds, relatively active I've played sports most of my life (basketball, football, workout).. diagnosed 6 months ago. Could this be the medicine symptoms or something serious? I can be sitting down after a day of exercise and I can feel (and hear) my heart beat through my head, the temple regions specifically.
Avatar m tn He retrieved my printed notes from the previous practice and there in the notes was <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>half</span> an A4 page highlighted in red from 10 years ago. I had however been told that there was "Nothing wrong with my heart", during many visits to various GP's and consultants. I even suggested to one GP that I thought it might be an aortic root aneurysm causing the pain(also unexplained hoarse voice), to be told "No, they are as rare as hens teeth!".
Avatar m tn Hello doctor, I am a 24 year old male who takes Losartan 100, Toprol xl25 and Hydrochlorothiazide 25. Recently a psychiatrist prescribed me Lexapro 10mg and Xanax 0.5 twice daily to hopefully treat the anxiety/panic disorder that has made my life very difficult the last few years. However I am concerned as I suffer from high blood pressure and racing heartbeat and now I am afraid to take the Lexapro as I fear its going to worsen my not so good blood pressure and heart rate.
Avatar m tn I am 39 yrs old with well controlled hypertension since 7 years.(On losartan 100mg).My sleep pattern has disturbed over the past 5 months as I get up after 4 hours seep and am very active.It then takes time for me to go off to sleep again.Sometimes I have frequent wakening in the night and get up with adull headache.There is no stress that could have disturbed my sleep pattern.recently about 2 months back I started having PVC's(premature ventricular contractions or missed beats).
Avatar f tn The next morning I took a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>half</span> tab of labetalol (50 mg?) and checked my blood pressure shortly thereafter and it was normal. In follow-up visits at the hospital the following week it was also normal on a very low dose of labetalol. I stopped taking labetalol after a week. A visiting nurse came to check my blood pressure a few days later and it was normal (something like 110/70).
Avatar m tn I take 1 losartan in the afternoon and a verapamil before I go to bed. But this morning I took my verapamil and coreg and it has stayed at about 125/75 all day without taking anymore meds at all. Now,at 3 am,it's 145/75. I realized my BP was very high those two times because I got a very bad headache and checked it and sure enough,it was at stroke level. I have had a very bad headache for 2 days but my BP has never risen to stroke level during that time.

Avatar f tn I see you just started another thread and while it's usually best to keep all your questions in one thread so we don't keep asking for the same information from you, I'll go ahead and respond to this question, because it's one that's near and dear to my heart... lol I never had a weight issue in my entire <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>life</span> until 2008 when my thyroid started whacking out and I literally gained 30 lbs in less than 3 months... I nearly freaked out!!
Avatar n tn Do I have any limitations in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>life</span> because of these palps? 11. Is there anything I should watch for that when these palps happen make them more sinister? 12. How do I know my palps are just the benign ones and haven't become more than just benign? I am sorry, you don't know how hard these are to live with...thank you so much..
Avatar n tn <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>life</span> expectation of infected hepatic cells can be as long as a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>half</span> to one year - when therapy is maintained this long after achieving UND, by this time all infected cells should have died out and SVR is achieved. (The recently suggested option to reduce SOC to 24 Weeks for RVR patients with GT 1 seems supporting this model.
Avatar m tn Was taken off the Warfarin and Amiodarone and told my AF is permanent and ablation unlikely to work either. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>half</span> the time I feel kind of OK ... then I get a few 'bad days' when I feel so dizzy and faint with mild tinnitus in both ears and edema in both feet/ankles. I just lie on bed most of the time until it passes. The cycle repeats every week or two with no clear pattern or obvious trigger. I am 59. obese, ex-smoker and ex-drinker but now eat lots of oily fish salad and fruit.
Avatar m tn You have less than 11 days (04/17) until you see your doctor. You might try cutting the tab in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>half</span> (pill cutters found at most drug stores). Try that for a 5 days as you continue to test and monitor your blood glucose. If your numbers remain in the normal range stop taking Metformin the last 5 days, but don't stop testing. Hopefully your glucose meter has memory where it stores up to two or more weeks of test results. Take the meter to your doctor and show him/her your results.
Avatar m tn 93%), the second phase slope is primarily determined by RU loss rate, gamma (half-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>life</span> 1.6-1.8 days), rather than by infected cell loss rate, delta (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>half</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>life</span> 1.9-13.9 days), as in previous model. In 1 patient with a lower effectiveness (99.6%) the second phase is slower and determined by the loss rate of infected cells, delta (half-life 8.7 days).

I was so afraid I would not like me.. I was damaged I was used I was not of value.. well none of that turned out true and I like me I never thought I would... Now this wtf...
544292 tn?1268886268 Over the years of recovery and reading about others, seeing others recover the main thing I have learned is that everyone's <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>life</span> 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.
