Zetia and heartburn

Common Questions and Answers about Zetia and heartburn


I take Omeprazole for acid reflux/hiatal hernia, and I take Synthroid for hypothyroidism. I also take Zetia every other day for cholesterol. All of these are working well, but I hope they are not the cause of my Gastroparesis. I don't want to take anymore medications, especially the ones that are given for Gastroparesis. Since I don't have the usual symptoms, do I really need medication for it?
I have been on synthroid as well as levothyroxine since I was 14 years old. Back and forth with those 2 meds. as well as up and done in dosages can not find a happy place it seems to fluctuate alot. I am sick and tired of being sick and tired. I for once would like to have some energy. Work fulltime and have to young children. What a challenge that is! tsh seems to be normal however I wonder sometimes if i am over medicated! gaining weight not losing?
I have sinus tachycardia no big deal, just it's 115-120 bpm when it regularly should be 60-100 bpm. I am only 22 years old, and have times of social anxiety where my heart rate goes up, and my face gets hot. so my doctor prescribed a low dose of 60 mg SA inderal. it's supposed to be teh extended release version or something. but i looked it up and supposedly the lowest therapeutic dose for inderal extended release is 80, so I may hafta adjust.
I was told I had no blockages just that my right coronary artery is very small and gets narrower the further down it goes. I don't know what that means and unfortunately I was very drowsy when the dr came in to tell me this as the sedated me for the cath. All I know is my Verapamil was increased to 240 mg and my Crestor was increased to 40 mg. Is this a normal finding or a potential problem?
I take 50mg of atenolol daily (as well as asprin, plavix, lipitor 80, zetia lorezepam and enalapril)and I have read that this beta blocker can weaken the LES. I have had 2 negative thallium stress tests in the past 8 weeks and I am relatively certain the pain is not cardiac related. I realize that you cannot diagnose me in this forum. My gastroenterologist is booked solid for the next two weeks, and I would appreciate any insight you might have about my symptoms.

I also have that annoying warm sensation that is in my right leg and it moves from my ankle and up about 4inches and seems to be very frequent. I too thought it was a little heater under the seat of my car that was warming my leg-but the heat was not on. Also, the balls of my feet are burning along with this sensation. I need to know what this is?
