Common Questions and Answers about Prevacid and high blood pressure

prevacid

I take toprol for blood pressure,and xanax sometimes,I do have high blood pressure,but my doctor just changed me to toprol for the shaking which I was not doing until I started prevacid,it`s helped ,but when I hold something I still shake.Im 31 ,I have taken several meds for different things and Im allergic to several meds,and I can`t take several because side effects,Im in that 5% of people that may experience side effects,I get them all!
Now, about 6 months after I finished that study, I've had to visit the doctor three times for other things (heart palpitations that turned out to be harmless and some digestive issues), and each time my blood pressure is always in the prehypertension range...about 130/85. Last time it was 135/88. So I'm wondering, why would my blood pressure jump up to that range in a fairly short amount of time?
I'm supposed to be having the upper endoscopy in a few days, do you think I should call the doctor's office and let them know about my throat and blood pressure? This is all new to me and I don't know what to do! Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
Yes after dealing with this problem, diarrhea and pain on my left side lower abdomen. I developed acid reflux and high blood pressure. I was prescribed Avapro, Asprin, and Prevacid. Recently, I started to develop a problem with bleeding. At first it started with a small amount of blood. These bouts are usually when I am constipated. I called the doctor and he told me to stop taking the Asprin. I stop and in a couple days the blood goes away.
What could be the reason for dropping blood pressure? P.S.
That doctor said I have diffuse esophageal spasms, IBS and reflux, which I already knew and for which I take Prevacid. (sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't- I often have a pinching in my diaphram.) The gastro sent me to the internist, who said it was anxiety and gave me 3 different types of antidepressants, all of which gave me episodes of racing heart. I went back to the electrophysiologist, who wants to try beta blockers.
Hi, Your primary physician is right. High blood pressure and increased heart rate are not related to GERD. I have heard a few patients complaining of increased heart rate. But there is no relationship between the two.
Repeated procedures have changed the environment of your arteries and veins. Get your dopamine and serotonin blood levels checked. History of taking drugs and certain medications should be looked into. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
I did have some jaundice in my eyes and very dark yellow urine. They treated me with Mucomyst, Prevacid, and antibiotics...but they have no diagnosis other than I must have injured my liver. I have been in no accidents. I have hypothyroidism, but I am on Synthyroid medication. I am overweight by about 45 pounds. I did have some steriod injections in my back in September 2009. And I did eat some oysters about 3 weeks ago in a gumbo, but they should have been cooked.
after the 2nd injection, I got burning and pressure in my URQ, and then the IV came unplugged and the stuff to contract my gall bladder ran all over my arm. Then, after 15 more minutes, they gave me another 2nd dose. I think that the results could quite possible be wrong.) Since about Jan., I have also developed discomfort ( varies between nothing, pressure under rt. ribs like a golf ball, pressure across bra line in middle and right side of chest, burning in upper chest and rt.
I also had an ultrasound and they found nothing abnormal there. I am a 34 year old male and have normal blood pressure and I am in good shape (not overweight). I will be having a ultrasonic liver biopsy performed tomorrow. The doctor doesn't know what is causing my AST & ALT to be elevated. I am obviously pretty nervous about what the results may be. The things that I can point to that might be contributers to my current condition are things that I did years ago.
Two weeks ago, I gave blood for the first time, and they said my blood pressure was a little high (162/88). I wrote it off as nerves or a bad morning (between 8:30-9:30 A.M.). This past week, around 10:00 A.M. I felt a little dizzy, and I was really tired, so I went down to the clinic to sit down and relax for a while. While there the nurse checked my BP, and it was 130/90, which she said was high, later that afternoon I was at 140/90.
Could the blood pressure be causing the symptoms even though half the time it is in the normal range (both parents and 21 year old brother have high blood pressure) I have quit date of June 1, for the smoking. Having a husband that has MS and 2 heart attacks all before the age of 45 has made me learn that you must inform yourself and learn about your condition and speak up with any questions you have so I really appreciate your time and assistance.
I have been reading some of your letters here - and I have the same problem (am 34 years old, male, normal weight, "good health," but on medication for anxiety and for high blood pressure; I take some vitamins and herbs) - I don't believe at this point that the blood is mixed in with the stool, necessarily, and I have some sort of periodic trouble in the anal area (rawness, bleeding, soreness, so to speak) which does not always coincide with the blood in the stool.
I used it 10 days, and then 3 weeks I didn't feel taste of blood and I dind't notice a blood in my saliva, but now it's happening again. I think it might be gastritis, but I am not noticing any strange feelings, pains, or whatever else strange. I am hearing for Vitamin C deficiency for first time from you, but you might be right, because really I eat mostly things from the shop, I mean biscuits, wafers and so on, but I don't eat fruits and vegetables.
MRI, CT scan, 3 thyroid tests, some tests on my heart, blood pressure and 5 vials of blood for other blood work. I went to see a neurologist as well. Nothing has shown up. My doctor has given me no other course of action or diagnosis. Blurred vision and head pressure seem very related. Both are better upon waking for about 5 minutes (longer if I do not stand up). When I have a runny nose it is significantly better. My fatigue is not significantly affected by anything.
When at doctors' offices my pulse is fast and blood pressure is borderline high, but these numbers are generally lower at home. My father's family has a history of heart problems and he has to work to prevent high blood pressure. I can exercise and exert myself without a problem. When the pericarditis happened I was heavily involved in intramural sports. As you can see from my height and weight, I am very thin.
I then went to a more progressive ENT in 2005 who did an ethmoidectomy (removed the sinuses from between my eyes)and I really thought my problems were over. My pain and pressure were completely gone and I felt great. Until.....the beginning of the year I started having sinus infection problems with dizzyness and feeling totally lousey. A week and a half ago I was on my 3rd sinus infection when I finally went to a friend who is a Nurse Practitioner and had her culture my sinuses.
This just happened again to my thumb after 10 years and my cardiologist prescribed high blood pressure meds...and I DON'T have high blood pressure, I've been running for 25 years! If anyone has a diagnosis please share...I know your frustration.
I just came across a reference that states that high TSH and high t4 could mean a possible TSH secreting pituitary adenoma. Here is the source: http://www.thyroidmanager.org/Chapter6a/chapter%206a-text.htm Thyroid Manager is a great source. Is your daughter taking any medication? Some can raise the t4. I'm not familiar with the THBR. Sorry. I would seek out an endocrinologist to explain these tests, if you haven't already.
Hello Exforge is a combination of Amlodipine and Valsartin. A calcium channel blocker and ACE inhibitor used to treat high blood pressure. Possible side affects include indigestion as well as numbness and tingling of the extremities (feet and hands). I would call your doctor to describe these side affects so that he/she can assess the severity to determine if the medication needs to be stopped and changed to something else.
I've had, in the past 10 years, angiogram, Thalium stress test, and many gallbladder tests that have all turned out negative. Should I be worried? I have high blood pressure which is very well controlled and high cholesterol, which I take Crestor for. What's up?
Lipitor (for cholesterol), Diovan (high blood pressure), Prevacid (GERD), Ambien (insomnia), an 81 mg coated aspirin, and a vitamin everyday. I have tried discontinuing everyone of these medications, one at a time, for one mnth. To no avail. HELP! I think I am going crazy.
About a year earlier I took Prevacid 30 mg for about 6 months and a few months before blood work was on antibiotic for a root canal.On 4-3-06 had blood work done again after watching diet cholesterol dropped to 193 triglycerides were 93 hdl was 49 and ldl 125. This time my sgpt was 91 sgot was 59 and alk phosphate was 129.Doctor said do follow up blood work in 3 months.
Obstructive sleep apnea is a condition where one stops breathing repeatedly through the night due to obstruction in the throat area. So if untreated, it is associated with high blood pressure, depression, obesity, heart disease, as well as many other medical conditions. This diagnosis is based on a formal overnight sleep study, where one has to stop breathing at least 10 seconds per each episode. If this occurs more than 5-15 times every hour, you are told you have sleep apnea.
a history of IBS, with annual colonoscopies for years, bulging disc in back, and high blood pressure which I control with medication. For the past 6 months I have been experiencing such distress, beginning with a tingling feeling in my arms which ultimately causes me great anxiety and an inability to feel at peace. My doctor said it was anxiety disorder and put me on Ativan (10mg) although I have taken only 1/2 pill because it makes me so drowsy.
assuming my prevacid is still effective,i went to bed last nite and experience the same problem at dawn-stomach expansion and then pressure on both temples and a headache. as i get up and move around,it finally went away with no aspirin or any medication. MY question is this- what do i really have??heart problem or stomach problem?? does stomach problem shot up to my head and affected both temples and give me a headache?? what is actually going on when the stomach started expanding? is it gas??
My neurologist sent me to a 3-day IV infusion lab about a week and a half ago where they loaded me up with phennergan, steroids, something that shrunk my blood vessels temporarily, and lorazapam, so I slept for a few days, and woke up with a headache.
I have had palpitations for years occasionally, but for the pass few months it started with a funny feeling in my stomach and like a cold sweat, and when i check my preassure its high, then low and so it goes......
I cut the sodas out and fast food. So? What do you think? I have had the blood tests, xrays and EKGs and a stress test. Nothing abnormal except normal abonomalities.... Does the synthyroid need to be adjusted not only for the levels in a person but for the person's weight??? I don't have high blood pressure, mine runs low normally. The last visit to the ER said I had gastritis and they did all kinds of blood tests.
