Benicar water pill

Common Questions and Answers about Benicar water pill


Avatar f tn It's odd that both of these causes a symptom like sinus issues as each works differently. Hydrochlorothiazide is just a water pill that lowers BP by removing fluid from your system which will lower BP. I also think your current meds are a bit much, but I do not have a medical degree like your doctors so I would never second guess him. The ARB's work for me and have the fewest side effects, but everyone is different. I guess I would ask him why he has chosen your current meds.
1090984 tn?1463773450 I have been on 10mg plus a water pill for 4 months and felt normal, now all the sudden I have this out of breath and heaviness in my chest feeling. My blod pressure did take a dip into to 97/70 but I am pretty sure that's not causing me to feel this way since it also happens when my pressure is higher. I am just getting so frustrated and tired of not feeling well and nobody has any answers!
1090984 tn?1463773450 I never had a problem until I had my first baby and a week later my bp was 161/110 2nd baby after a week shot up to 191/110. Took forever to go down and was finally put on Azor 5/40 plus a water pill. I went off because my bp was normal after a year or 2, then one night I had a heavy chest, I took my bp and it was 180/108. What concerns me is my diastolic stays high, in the morning my bp can go down to 120/90, the disatolic remains high. or I get readings of 150/99 to 117/91.
478554 tn?1208038007 Years ago, I have prescription for Benicar 20mg (OlmeSartin by Sankyo), but it costed me over $1 per pill per day. A bottle of 100 costs over $100. I was told Potassium Sparing Diuretic is not expensive addition to two others I am taking 1. Diltiazem extended release 240mg 2. Amlodipine 2.5mg Do you agree? Yes, I hate the effect of diuretic going to bathroom often. But I assume Diuretic HCT has the least long term side effect compare to all other blood pressure drugs.
Avatar f tn The chief of staff at UAB, Birmingham, Alabama told me to always drink tons of water when taking Levaquin. I drink 32 oz. of water with every pill, and another 32 oz. during the day. Before this, I took Levaquin and had problems with my joints. I do not have a problem at all when I drink the water. Maybe this will help.
Avatar n tn Originally when I found out about the high BP, I took a prescribed water pill (can't think of the name), but it didn't work. I then decided to try and lower it myself by eating right, working out and taking plenty of natural pills (potassium, mag, cal, zinc, garlic and cinnimon on my oat meal) . My BP dropped from 150/95-100 to 130-135/ 85-90. Still I knew I needed to get it lower and that is when I got on Benicar HCT.
Avatar m tn - Tingling scalp sensations on either or both sides of my head - Heart skipped beats, palpitations - Left side stabbing chest pain - High blood pressure (have had it for 4 years, and had been controlling it with benicar.
Avatar f tn Eventually he started taking only 1/2 a pill a day, which still controlled his BP and still made him dizzy. Recently, he decided that he couldn't handle the dizziness anymore so he went off of the meds entirely (w/o telling anyone). He got a stomach flu the following week, his BP went way up again (170/100) and he went to the doctor. the doctor gave him bystolic to try.. to see if the side effects would be any more manageable for him.
Avatar m tn In case this info helps, I am also since several months on Benicar, meds for hypertension. Any suggestion or opinion is very thankful.

Avatar f tn I was testing his blood, bringing him food but he was eating very little, drinks, water, meds, clean clothes - in fact I never stopped and I felt so ill and hurt all over but this was my love who was now hurting and sick and I had nobody to turn to so I had to do it. I don't know where I got the strength really, but it just goes to show that the old adrenalin was pumping.
Avatar n tn It first started in my legs, the symptoms are so bad that if you can imagine a cold sensation over the burning and intense prickling, its something you can't ignore, becasue it doesn't go. I can take medicine to reduce it, when I find that magic pill iI shall be over the moon. I think that the biggest problem is for most people is that they want a cure, I don't blame you, because that is how I have felt desperatley for the past six months.
Avatar n tn It is so strong sometimes that my eyes will water and my throat will feel sore. The only common connection I can see is that I am on blood pressure medication.......Benicar. Otherwise, I am in very good health.
Avatar f tn Also, I have only been on the Hydrochlorat for 5 days now, and they said I would have large amounts of water output, but I have not seen it yet. I know I confused a lot of people. Just too much on my mind so I am giving this a try because the Clinics will not give me anything for my nerves. They said "counseling". I said - h--, I know what is wrong with me, all I need to do is pray, talk to my family and find out what the heck is going on with me.
Avatar n tn ” If you soak in water long enough, protective oils get depleted from your skin. Water can leak in to your skin after awhile. In warm water like in a bathtub or pool, the thick skin on your fingers and toes tends to absorb water and swell. But this swelling doesn’t happen uniformly. Instead, the regions of skin that are most heavily anchored from below will remain lower than the more softened and swollen regions. The result – those temporary wrinkles on your fingers and toes.
Avatar n tn General MDs just are at a loss as to what it is, and don't seem to think its serious -- I'm fine with that answer, but I'm extremely curious if there's any explanation, and if so is there any thing really wrong? I'm on blood pressure medication (Benicar and HCTZ) and I've had two episodes of what I guess are Migraines.
136956 tn?1425609872 The idea here is that we need more doctors and more hospitals, which means more another pill, another procedure, which always leads to another bill. Who benefits from that? Doctors, insurance companies, and pharmaceutical companies. What do we get out of it? Side effects from the prescriptions and more medical bills.
Avatar f tn There is one called Follicle Booster which is expensive, but helps a lot. And drink tons of water. Topamax is dehydrating and water will help the tingling sensations you get, along with the brain fog that comes with it. A couple of gallons of water a day will help. That's a lot, but you'll notice the difference. Plus you need to replenish your electrolytes with an occasional sports drink. Again, speaking from experience here. Good luck!
Avatar m tn 000iu daily to 5000iu daily and lost 20points to 72ng/ml, so there is so much interference from hbv on vit d, definitely nothing to do with healthy people at all, vit d acts like a water soluble vitamin on some of us with no accumulation at all so the only way to reach around 90ng/ml for me is stay on 10.000-15.
Avatar n tn If you use a sinus rinse, which feels great, be sure to use distilled water to avoid the brain eating amoeba found in some tap water. This killed at least two people in Louisianna recently who used a sinus rinse with tap water. Good luck and let us know what works for any of you. I live in Kansas.
Avatar n tn Beyond this point she will drink steadily until it is time to leave. I can’t remember her ever switching to water. It’s hard to generalize her behavior at this point other than to say that she will be the drunkest person at the wedding, dinner party or gathering. Throughout this entire period I have been looking for a chance to exit. There is a 50/50 chance that I can get her into the car without her calling me an anti-social party pooper loudly enough for folks to hear.
Avatar n tn drinking plenty of water, eating enough potassium, and stretching before and after exercise is supposed to help avoid cramps." "When you get a charley horse, massages, stretching, warm baths, and ice are all generally recommended (although none are scientifically proven to work). Those who want relief in pill form can try vitamin B12 supplements.
Avatar n tn Does anyone else have this? Oh she also says she has water that often gushes down the back of her neck and spine. Ever heard of this? I wonder if it is linked. The Drs are puzzled with that one! Thanks for listening. I'll add you all to my prayers as well as my sister.
Avatar n tn after the 6 day pack, and another 5 pills in a different dosage, I have 1 pill left and feel normal again. But I'm scared I'm going to get right back into it like you are saying. My allergy testing was cancelled because they said I had to be off the Prednisone for 2 weeks, so rescheduled for the end of Nov. The chiropractor says he can help me...will do accupuncture when I start having the facial pain and pressure, and for now is working on the neck. One day at a time is all we can do.
Avatar n tn I was on holidays in europe, im from australia, anyway i think my body was really run down from stressing out from trip b4, scared of flying, i was pretty run down, did london, did a bit of drinking and went to amsterdam, smoked a bit of marijuana, anyway it wasnt until a few days later when it hit me, i woke up really light headed, dizzy, my legs,feet,arms and hands were numb, couldnt really feel anything, i nearly collapsed in the street, everything was delayed, i was slow in the head, i wou
Avatar n tn Pot which you can purchase at your local drugstore. It is a little pot you fill with luke warm water and mix in a saline packet then tilt your head to the side, insert in one nostril and it will eventually flow out the other nostril, cleaning your sinusus...I renamed it the snoti pot :) I was hesitant at first but actully works great and feels good...almost gives you the sensation you've been swimming all day if you know what I mean.
Avatar n tn (I had a carbonated water with Splenda in it and thought I would have to go to the hospital the pain was so bad.) Since I have cut out Splenda (about a month now) the pain is now tolerable. They still don't know what is going on though - the OB/GYN says it is intestinal related and the gas doc says it is female related. Both say they took care of the problems the tests and scans showed. I'm about ready to slap them both! I also have pain from my belly button on down (both sides).
Avatar n tn I assumed that there was a motor going on in the cellar like the AC unit or perhaps the hot water heater, but then I realized that it was my foot. It persisted to the point where if I walked fast or went up the stairs, the entire sole of both my feet hummed. I had no difficulty walking nor was I unsteady. Then I had something I had only had tiny glimmers of prior -- I had a panic attack of the worst degree.
Avatar f tn Paracetamol rids the discomfort and I've been told to drink lots of water and the stents should settle down after a few days. Time will tell. I was also surprised to hear that angina will probably be experienced for a while until the heart adjusts.
