Norvasc and hydrochlorothiazide

Common Questions and Answers about Norvasc and hydrochlorothiazide

norvasc

I take 2 blood pressure medications, 80 mg of Inderal LA, and Norvasc(sp?). I am calm and have my blood pressure taken daily, but it has been up there lately, usually about 160/90 with a resting pulse rate of about 114. I feel some tension in my neck, and I am usually very tired. I have been diagnosed as hypothyroid and also take synthroid. I guess my question is how fast is too fast for tachycardia. My father died of a heart attack with no symptoms. Thanks in advance for any help.
I am taking ambien, hydrochlorothiazide 20 mg, lisinopril 20 mg and norvasc 10mg. My energy seems lower and my sex drive too. Is it possible that adjusting one or more of these medications will alleviate the symptoms?
May be you are talking about Amlodipine Besylate (Norvasc), I am taking that and Triamterene Hydrochlorothiazide (Dyazide) which is probably close to what you are taking. I have no ill effect from them, however, the Amlodipine sometimes makes your ankles and feet swell to the point where you no longer can't get your shoes on.
As of recent I have been experiencing pressure in the head, a skipping of heart beat feeling, loss of short term memory and my resting rate is up to 84-90 and bp is at 98/82 sitting and at 118/100 when standing. I have had a complete brain MRI, blood work and all is fine. The change in my rhr and bp ( the closeness of the systolic and diastolic witht he fluctuations in it when sitting and standing) is conserning and the headaches are unbearible. Any ideas...
I am a 52 year old woman, I have Diabetes 1, and Gerd. For 3 months now I have been dealing with extreme high blood pressure. Avg. 220/123, accompanied by chest pain in my upper left size of my chest. This pain does not move. I have been put in the hospital 3 times within these 3 months. I get stress tests, ultrasounds, X-rays and blood work.
Symptoms are shortness of breath, swelling in the legs, chest discomfort and palpitations and increased fatigue. Treatment is usually medical and in severe cases heart transplant. About a third of patients get worse with some going on to transplant. Another third stay the same and are managed well with medical therapy and the rest get better. With cardiomyopathy due to high blood pressure the treatment is lowering of the blood pressure.
Can this be artificially high because of medications taken for other problems i.e. high blood pressure (5mg Norvasc, 12.5mg Hydrochlorothiazide, .1mg clonodine 2x daily), hormone replacement (premarin 1.25), anit-depressant (150xl Wellbutrin), sleep-aid (Ambien) and Prevacid?
another thought it would be a good idea to reduce the tenormin to 50 mg and take 5 mg of Norvasc; and the third, suggested to gradually replace the tenormin by 5 mg Norvasc, and to be increased if needed, to 10 mg. Having read so much about Hypertension and its medications, I'm inclined towards the second opinion, i.e. 50 mg tenormin in combination with 5 mg Norvasc. However, I don't have a problem with the first opinion. My problem is with the third; I prefer to keep taking Tenormin.
I will very often add a calcium channel blocker like norvasc second and maximize that dose -- norvasc 10 mg once per day. If this does not control blood pressure, I would next add HCTZ at 12.5 mg and increase to 25 mg if necessary. Beta blockers are not great blood pressure medications, but it is a reasonable addition. The dose can be increased if you have normal kidneys. Based on your current meds, adding norvasc is a very reasonable next step.
I have extensive CAD with mutiplable stent placement in the past 22 months, and have high blood pressure (Usally 180/110 And higher), what effect does the high blood pressure have on CAD and angina. I am on bp meds. (norvasc, imdur, toprol XL, spirolactone, valturna, cattapress tts, iron, dexilant & carfate).
I am 5-10 215lbs but have weighed closed to 250 at one point and have been between 225 and 235 for the past 5 years. I have been dieting and exercising now and am serious about my health. I used to have very high tryglicerodes and over 500 and semi high cholesteral which I am taking a statin for. I also take blood pressure meds (Norvasc&hydrochlorothiazide). The last time I had bloodwork my levels were all in range because I had started losing weight and dieting.
Follow-up CT scans and nuclear studies reveal no restenosis. I was placed on Norvasc, Altace and hydrochlorothiazide to control BP at 145/95 (average). Test for vasoactive amines was negative. Since starting medicines partial relief has been given to the flushing and severe face pain which occurred 1 month post stint procedure. Is flushing associated with BP? What is the deciding factor to determine if hypertension is truly idiopathic?

Altace(10mg) twice a day); Atenolol(50mg); Hydrochlorothiazide(25mg); Imdur(30mg); Lipitor(20mg); and Aspirin(81mg). Recently my systolic blood pressure started to elevate to 150 and my doctor, about a week ago, has now added Norvasc(5mg) per day to bring my systolic back into the 125 - 135 range which has been successful. It was explained that this could be due to the onset of Isolated Systolic Hypertension(ISH). My diastolic blood pressure has been relatively normal between 70 - 75.
the eyes are not moving back and forth 2. she didn't take norvasc yesterday as the Dr said she can just take 2 of metorpolol instead of 1 of metoprolol 50mg and 1 of norvasc 5mg. So, she slept just fine last night, no nausea today. The BP though has dropped to 99/60, pulse 77 on average. I think she is getting better...
I take this pill everyday and it is doing nothing for my bp. I have taken Norvasc, Atenolol, and Hydrochlorothiazide in the past and had no relief. I can feel my heartbeat all over my body (fingers, toes, temples, top of head, stomach, neck, ears, eyes) and can also see it in my chest, stomach, neck, and sometimes my wrists. When I go from a seated to a standing position (I take my time) I can feel a tremendous pressure in my head and neck and I get an instant headache.
You could also try various calcium channel blockers such as Amlodipine (norvasc). Make sure to quit smoking and take care of your cholesterol. Start with a heathy diet and exercise and if that doesn't work start taking a statin.
Started on Altace 5mg then to Altace 10 then added Norvasc 5mg and now on Norvasc 10mg. Finally got the pressure down to normal levels. I am stictly watching the diet - lost about 20 pounds so far - and added cardio as well. Must say that the blood pressure got my attention. Notwithstanding all of these issues I must say that I feel really great approaching my 1 year anniversary of completing treatment. Lots of energy. Lots of optimism. Motivated and all that.
Some medications for high blood pressure include captopril (Capoten), enalapril (Vasotec), losartan (Cozaar), valsartan (Diovan), diltiazem (Cardizem), Amlodipine (Norvasc), hydrochlorothiazide (HydroDiuril), furosemide (Lasix), and many others. • Warfarin (Coumadin) interacts with COENZYME Q-10 Warfarin (Coumadin) is used to slow blood clotting. Coenzyme Q-10 might help the blood clot. By helping the blood clot, coenzyme Q-10 might decrease the effectiveness of warfarin (Coumadin).
My blood pressure was taken every 10 minutes throughout the night and became as high as 187/130. After finding no other abnormalities, I was sent home and given a presciption for hydrochlorothiazide, a water pill.
Internal Medicine doctor gave prescription for Norvasc because of a higher reading in blood pressure. Presently take 100 mg of Corzaar and 25 mg of Hydrochlorothiazide. I note Norvasc is a calcium channel drug. Why more medication is needed, but physician indicates it will help. I have not filled this prescription and am told to return in 3 weeks to recheck. This has been going on since February - every 3 weeks to check blood pressure readings.
My medication daily dosages for the past ten years have been atenolol(50mg), vasotec(20mg), hydrochlorothiazide(25mg), imdur(30mg), lipitor(20mg), and aspirin(81mg). Recently(four days ago) my physician changed the Vasotec(20mg) per day to Altace(10mg) per day. This was done because my systolic blood pressure was starting to rise above 140. All of the other medications remain the same. Questions: 1. In general, how long does it take for Altace to lower my systolic blood pressure?
On Oct. 20, 2007 my 78 yr old mother who is normally independent, active, and healthy had an episode of severe dizziness, weakness, and “she just didn’t feel good”. She called 911 and ended up in the emergency department. While there she had supraventricular tachycardia which lasted for several minutes then converted on it’s own. Other than her magnesium being low everything else was negative. She was seen by a cardiac electrophysiologist and an ablation was done on 10-22-07.
tenormin(50mg), Altace(10mg), hydrochlorothiazide(25mg), imdur(30mg), lipitor(20mg), and aspirin(81mg). Recently, I have noticed an increase in my blood pressure, especially the systolic from 120/75 to 150-155/78. My physician changed my ace inhibitor from vasotec(20mg) once a day to Altace(10mg) once a day and I have not seen much change in my systolic measurements.

My head bobs, for eg, when I try to hurry up to walk, after I get in and out of the car and I have been trained how to get in and out of car., bend down to pick up something and come back up, or if I sit in a chair too long /wrong chair where I cannot sit at right-angles with my feet flat. Other symptoms...low back pain effecting both legs and both feet...
Diuretics -- Two types of diuretics known as loop (such as furosemide or Lasix) and thiazide (including hydrochlorothiazide) diuretics can lower magnesium levels. For this reason, doctors who prescribe diuretics may recommend magnesium supplements as well. Hormone Replacement Therapy -- Magnesium levels tend to decrease during menopause. Clinical studies suggest, however, that hormone replacement therapy may help prevent the loss of this mineral.
158/105 was the highest I think. I've been clean over a year now, and have to take Norvasc AND Losartan. Neither of them alone will take care of it, but together they do pretty good. I am now down to about 120/90 which is tons better than where I was before. My opinion is that you should most definitely keep an eye on it...I felt pretty bad, drug down, headaches more often than not, and just bad in general. It took several different BP meds to get me where I needed to be.
