Common Questions and Answers about Crestor zetia combination


Avatar n tn The medications are primidone (essential tremor), propranolol (essential tremor), zetia (cholesterol), crestor (cholesterol), foltx (blood vessels), synthroid (overactive thyroid), and altace (blood pressure). I had a very mild heart attack five years ago and the altace and foltx are on-going preventitive medications. My problems are.
Avatar n tn Hair loss can also come from hormonal imbalances i.e. pregnancy or menopause or from a thyroid disorder or even from stress.
Avatar n tn I have taking 20mg of lipitor for years and it has dramatically lowered my cholesterol, particulary ldl. But don't take my advice. Take the doctor's advice! And have a healthy regimin of diet and exercise. A small percentage don't tolerate lipitor or other statins, but it is a small percentage. If you take it for life, hopefully you will take it for a very long time. That's why your doctor recommended it.
129317 tn?1189759421 My Pharmaceutical cocktail over the past three years includes 1000mg of Ranexa twice a day, Plavix, Crestor, Zetia, Bydil, Bystolic, Trental, Lasix Nitro, Nexium, Fish oil and other vitamins. There have been numerous side effects to the combination of meds however, I have learned to live with it. I continue to have angina and breathing issues but I felt fortunate to be functional.
Avatar n tn I too am felt to suffer from endothelial dysfunction and have familial hyperlipidemia. Crestor is a good medication in my opinion for aggressively treating lipid issues, and in combination with Zetia works well (I'm not a doc, just discussing my own experiences as a heart patient). I was on Lipitor for nearly 10 years (my TC was in the 450s in my mid to late teens) and it helped me from having an issue earlier. Are you diabetic?
Avatar n tn 1.Zetia 10mg. Just changed from a former statin (crestor 5mg) because of elevated liver enzymes. 2.Just went back on a PPI ( protronix) for the gastro probs. and slight acid refux that always seems to come on prior or during a bad run of PVC's or sometimes tachycardia episode, possibly IST? 3.Klonopin 1mg or 1mg Ativan with my BB 2x daily. The beta blocker don't do it all alone, unfortunately.
Avatar n tn He took me off of the Tricor and Omacor and switched it to Crestor (statin) and the Zetia. In one month, I have had my cholesterol drop to 97 and my trig. are down to 398. It feels funny to be pleased with a trigl. number nearing 400, but with my history....we were thrilled. Anyone else have this condition? My mother suffered acute pancretitis when she was my same age, but not much was known about it back then. She is learning about her blood disorder as I am with mine.
Avatar n tn 183 lb ,my cholesterol is normal , my resting heart rate is 60,my blood presure is 120 over 70 I believe, my cardiologist has me on 40mg of lipator and 10mg of zetia .My questions are is there any other ways to reduce the current blockage? Is my blockage considered alarming ? what type of blockage should someone my age expect to have? ps,I did smoke for a few years in my 20s and my diet was not the best.
Avatar n tn Finally, asked for a senior doctor, and WRAP on wood, I have not had a bad one in 5 months. Can you believe! I am wrapping on wood as I am typing this.. I too am on Crestor and Zetia. Plavix for life, ZEBETA which so far is doing its job (this has taken the place of TOPOLXL) and Avapro 150. I have 4mg. Nitro that I carry at all times. I have a diuetic to be taken only if I think I need it. I see the docs every 3 months for EKG's and ECHO's. Nuclear Cardiolites every 6 months so far.
Avatar n tn I am 74 and have a long history of medium-level cardiovascular problems. I was on FOUR heart meds (Crestor, Lisinopril, Zetia and Niaspan ... plus Aspirin) for about 15 years but I really wanted to get off of these. They had reduced my cholesterol from about 290 to 190 which made my doctor happy. I was also about 50 pounds overweight and was borderline for diabetes. My wife (God bless her) got involved with the "BodyByVi Challenge" in mid-June this year.
Avatar m tn Nothing, surgery, stent(s), angioplasty, chemicals, dietary change, reduce arterial inflammation, or some combination of these actions. Most patients will do whatever their cardiologist recommends, as I did. Some day someone (not the major drug companies, who love things the way they are) will develop a process whereby plaque can safely be removed from arteries, and this issue will become moot. But most of us will be long gone by then.
Avatar f tn 5 mg) plavix 75 mg, enteric aspirin, crestor 10mg, as well as for my thyroid levoxyl .75 mg and cytomel .05 mg. I've been taking the thyroid meds for 35 yrs (the cytomel for about ten). I'm 60 yrs old and had cardiac arrest, doctors said it wasn't a heart attack. I was resuscitated in the ambulance and i thought maybe it was the trauma of cpr and/or shock (defibrillation) that caused the pain. After lowering the statin to once a day the pain is a little better.
