Avatar m tn I know Marfans is a connective tissue disorder but i have questions about my arota. So my dilation is mild, at around low-mid 40s mm large. I'm currently on 12.5 mg atenenol and 25 mg losartan/cozaar. Is it okay to take these drugs in high dosage together? Mainly because I've been doing some research on the web, and noticed how lost of people on this forum are reporting after taking a very high dosage of valsartan that there aorta shrunk quite a bit.
Avatar m tn My new VA doctor wants to change one of my blood pressure medications from 160 mg of Valsartan 2 times per day to an equivalent dose of 100 mg of Losartan but only once per day. My blood pressure has been controlled for years with typical readings around 118/70 using the Valsartan, Amlodipine 5mg, and a diuretic (hydrochlorothiazide 25mg). I have not made the change yet. 1.

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 half 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.

I went to the doctor yesterday and he took me off the Metoprolol and put me on 100 mg of Losartan. He told me to just stop taking the Metoprolol. I questioned starting off with such a high dose of Losartan.

Avatar f tn It is also important that you remove all herbal supplements and alcohol for the time being, and make sure to lower your salt intake to less than 2000 mg per day. Make sure to check all the labels on foods as there are some foods that hide lots of salt (i.e. processed foods, soy sauce, etc.). There is also some literature regarding plant based diets with regard to their ability to lower blood pressure (See texts by Neal Barnard, M.D., and Cl Essylstyn, M.D.
Avatar m tn Recently did a body check up and urine showed traces of blood and microalbumin at 92.2 mg/L. Creatinine levels is fine at 10.15 mmol/L. The ACR if 9.1mgAlb/mmolCr. My renal functions all showed normal returns with nothing over the accepted range. However the the presence of microalbumin I am worried when I read that this is a sign of early kidney damage. Went to see a kidney doctor to have further checks.

Avatar m tn I'm 29 and I take 600 mg of lithium a day. I used to enjoy drinking when I was younger (not getting super wasted but I liked my wine and beer), but since I've been on lithium I can't handle wine, and forget about liquor/spirits - zero. Why? First of all because of constipation. Alcohol combined with lithium is dehydrating! But I also have stopped drinking because it's not fun anymore...
21064 tn?1309312333 50 mg in the morning..and 50 mg at night. I have read posts here where people really have trouble with it, but I just love it. It keeps my heartrate down---and (most...well...some..) of the time it helps with the palpitations. I had some dizziness when I first started taking it, but thats it. Not one other side effect. I was also on Lipitor a year ago...It really worked, and I had zero side effects from that. Hope this helps!

Avatar f tn Doppler U/S and Renal MRA showed no Renal Artery Stenosis. Am now on Amlodipine (Norvasc) 10 mg, Valsartan (Diovan) 160 mg, Propranolol (Inderal) 80 mg, all once daily. Doctors are ambivalent about diagnosis: Some belief it is essential HTN, while some belief we just havent hit the nail on the head. *** Tremors: A few months after that, I developed severe tremors of my hands, and when fatigued, of the legs as well, to the extent I cannot walk.
Avatar n tn I am taking calcium and magnesium supplements (800mg of each at night + 400 mg of each in the morning). . I have taken BP regularly with Omron digital home device and found it to vary between 137/70 and 160/100 but usually around 150/90. This has been while at home away from a stressful environment. Resting heart rate seems to be about 80bpm. Consistently higher in the doctors office (160-170/90) - I think this may be anxiety about being there in the first place!
