The medication prescribed to me is Avapro HCT 150mg/12.5mg (Irbesartan and hydrochlorothiazide) taken once daily (1 tablet) mainly to help ensure the blood pressure remains under 140 systolic, which is believed to help reduce the pressure on the aorta and root. I am booked in for a second opinion with another cardiologist next week mainly to re-assure myself and my wife (and kids) that things are chugging along okay.
According to the labs I went from hypo to hyper - during the time period I was on hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ or HCT). The Endocrinology Department allegedly told her that missing a day or two of Synthroid would explain why I went HYPER. Geeesh. Does not compute. Found out I am allergic to HCTZ (they were supposed to have caught that since I have documented six ways to Sunday about almost dying from a sulfa drug and HCTZ is a thiazide (thi = sulfur).
She then did a biopsy and found I had a drug reaction. The only meds I take are Benicar HCT and potassium. I immediately went of the Benicar and started taking a variety of other BP meds. At first they though I was allergic to the HCT, but then realized it was the Benicar. I am now on Bystolic, but still have the rash. I also take 80mg of Lasix per day. I still have the rash... but was told by the dermatologist it may take up to 6 months for the meds to get out of my system.
