Synthroid and high blood pressure

Common Questions and Answers about Synthroid and high blood pressure


Avatar m tn Hyperthyroidism is a cause of high blood pressure and high pulse <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span>. Pulse <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> is the difference between the systolic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> diastolic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> readings and is normally around 40mmHg. Eg: 120/80 = 40. Your pulse pressure for your reading of 163/94 = 69 mmHg.
Avatar m tn No recurrence of any tumors During the past six months I have been experiencing high <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> two TIA's (mini strokes). Is it possible that my supplement program could be elevating my blood pressure?
Avatar n tn I also take Estratest HS and aspirin. Concern is now have high <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> irregular heart rate periodically. I had IV iron in my veins 5 years ago. I took Phosphorus and calcium which seemed to set off the high blood pressure after a long period of low/normal BP. Now Dr's are suspect of adrenal tumor. Is that likely with this history or did the the IV iron cause the problem.
646105 tn?1223657076 It seems that when we up the dose of Synthroid, his <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> goes up (after a few days), <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> if we cut back the dose, it goes down. Does that have anything at all to do with the blood pressure? He is taking .050 mg, but was initially taking .125 mg. Could there be a different underlying problem? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar n tn I had surgery about 6 weeks ago <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> went extremely high <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I could not get it to come down even on medication. I went to the doctor and he did a thyroid test. I have been on synthroid for a long time. He increased my dosage and said my thyroid was causing my blood pressure to be high. Has anyone else had this problem.
Avatar f tn I finally am feeling better and loosing weight through diet <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> exercise. Now I seem to have high <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I have noticed lately that a few "symptoms" that went away when I first went on synthroid have started creeping back up like leg cramps...could my blood pressure be related to needing my doseage updated? Any ideas on how to bring down my blood pressure naturally?
Avatar n tn I am curious if there is any relationship to hypothyroidism <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> high <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span>? I started taking a low dose of levothyroxin (25mcm) about a 3-4 weeks ago. I just had my blood pressure taken today and it was 140 over 76. This is very high for me since my pressure averages no higher than 110 over 75. Could the medicine cause an increase in pressure or could it be an odd reading?
Avatar f tn But, it seems that now I am having some issues with my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> being high. I have also noticed lately that some symptoms that I had before I started my synthoid...leg cramps, more sensitive to heat...have started coming back. Is it possible that I need my dose adjusted and could that be causing my high blood pressure? Also I have been having weird periods...I went 85 days between my previous one and it has been 63 now since that one?
Avatar m tn my girl friend just went to the doctor, they took her <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> it was 210 over 110. she is 53 and is all ready on procardia. they toke it four times and it stayed that high. they just gave her a scrpit for linsinaprel and sent her home, was that the right thing to do.
Avatar f tn 2wks tomorrow since surgery <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> still have tingle in feet <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> hands,<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> still not going down,was 146/97 today. I just dont understand to be like 97/72 up till i fall asleep for surgery and to wake up this high,and stay that way. Dr says he dont know what to do next,what it could be. I know this cant be good to go on now with this high of blood pressure and nothing done about it. I dont know where to turn to next.
Avatar n tn No cholesterol pills just synthrois increase. Good <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> is high as well. I have hypo with hashimoto's.
Avatar n tn I do believe that your level drops do have something to do with your heart issues. I also have high <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> - even on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> meds. I have been on blood pressure meds since my pregnancy 11 years ago. Never, ever stabilized after my PIH bought.
Avatar n tn my heart races and I had high <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> until my doctor placed me on atenlol 50mg I also take a birth control pill desogen and I'm only 20 years old my bp now is 103/50 is that okay? I'm not over weight and I am moderately active. Please I would like some advice on any of this. It's hard not knowing what is going on.
Avatar n tn I have previously been diagnosed with Raynaud's phenomenon. Recently (10 months) my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> has been high 140/90. I am in good health <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> exercise and eat right and don't smoke. However, the last few weeks, I have been experiencing dizziness + blood flushing to my hands and mild internal pains in my arms when this occurs. I'm concerned that this is circulatory and might be a precursor to a coronary event.

475570 tn?1280944963 Who Is More Likely to Develop High <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span>? People with family members who have high <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> pressure, smoke, overweight, not active, alcohol to excess, and people who eat too many fatty foods or foods with too much salt...reduce your blood pressure risk and medication.

1346429 tn?1303878454 I can no longer take my heart meds for high <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> irregular hb; topomax for migraines; metaphormin; <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> a few others. Which I quit taking some of my meds before pregnancy because I did a lifestyle change in which it helped enough that I could quit taking the extra meds. As far as C-section...both my boys were early but big because of the diabetes (not gestational) and I could not have them natually so this is another C-section baby.
