How does benazepril work

Common Questions and Answers about How does benazepril work


Avatar m tn my pdoc explained that while alcohal doesn't interact negatively with Lithium, it does dilute it, so it does affect your levels. He said that drinking a little is ok, but remember that alcohal is dehydrating, which is also dangerous when you're on Lithium. If you can, avoid it as much as possible. A little won't hurt you but don't make a habit of it. And don't use it as medicine (self-medicate).
Avatar m tn I think I've gotten heat exhaustion twice now, missed 2 days of work. This is not my career, only a 1 month learning experience and I'm considering going to half days, early mornings only. Can this be dangerous or as long as I stay hydrated, I guess I wasn't doing well enough there, or is the heat itself dangerous regardless of whether I'm hydrated. Do I need to quit altogether?

Avatar f tn I just want to sleep, no matter how much work there is still to be done, and I get a little foggy in my brain. Over time I learned to test my blood pressure when I started to feel that way. Two weeks ago I was feeling that way and tested it at the local grocery store and I was 97/58 with a normal pulse rate. I have asked Dr's repeatedly how low is to low and get told nothing usually. Out of sheer desperation I asked the local pharmacist for suggestions on what to do when I felt that way.
Avatar m tn What else can we do to get her to eat? Is she in pain? or is she just too weak from not eating? How long does she have to be on the antibiotic for? Will she get her appetite back? I've read a lot of the threads on this website, as well as read Tony's guide. Thank you for any input.
Avatar n tn An ACEi is an angiotension converting enzyme. Here is a blurb: "What are ACE inhibitors, and how do they work? (They decrease the production of angiotensin ll) Angiotensin II is a very potent chemical that causes the muscles surrounding blood vessels to contract and thereby narrows the blood vessels. The narrowing of the vessels increases the pressure within the vessels and can cause high blood pressure (hypertension).
Avatar f tn Hey thankyou for that info, I will try it,, and hopefully it will work. thanks again.
Avatar m tn I will ge the ultrasound done as soon as I can, but should I get back on the BP meds ASAP??? AND IF ALL THOSE TESTS WERE NORMAL, HOW DOES THAT FACTOR IN TO ALL OF THIS? Sorry if I sound nuts, but I would greatly appreciate some good feedback on this.
7588673 tn?1392306334 He took xrays, did blood work (which was perfect), and didn't really see anything and said to let him rest and put him on inflammitories for 2 months. When I took him back he had all but stopped eating and had lost a lot of weight. They called in a specialist to re-xray him but once again found nothing. That's when he referred us to another clinic for a second opinion, the first thing they did was do a more blood work, and they discovered renal failurel. His BUN was in the 90's.
Avatar m tn She stayed in the hospital for 3 nights after blood work showed indicators of kidney failure. I was not given a copy of the results, however, from what I can recall, her BUN was around 60 (that number sticks out) and her creatinine was 6.5 I believe. She stayed on fluids for 3 days. She did finally start to eat again on day 2 when I brought chicken and rice. Now, day 4, she is much more lively and willing to eat, just not dog food yet.
Avatar m tn The left ventricular ejection fraction is calculated to be 54%.... Two questions. How does 54% rate for a man 70 years old with emphysema. Also, I wad determined to try and find out why my pulse is so high and what can be done about it, if anything. Furthermore, I secretly hoped maybe I needed a valve or stint or something that might be impairing blood flow.
393419 tn?1228450993 Have been taking Co-enzyme Q10. How does the Q10 counter balance a cholesterol tablet? Also, how much Q10 should I be taking? Thanks!
17566731 tn?1457907522 I mixed it with some old food and she ate the whole bowl right away. That was around 6 pm. I work grave shift so I got home Saturday morning and took her out to potty. Her eyes were both covered by the lower eyelid membrane and she seemed disoriented, and confused. I helped her find her way back inside and tried to calm her down as she was trembling. When I checked her gums they were very pale. I've never seen this, so I rushed her off to the vet.
Avatar n tn I don't smoke and very seldom drink. Does anyone have any advice? Talking to people that understand definitely does help. I don't really think that someone who has never experienced this can truthfully understand. I wish you all luck in coping and treating.
649848 tn?1484935765 Do you exercise on a daily basis? How many minutes/day? Do you work out at home or go to a gym? Alone or with a partner? We see all types of questions on the forum asking for ideas on exercise. There is such a wide variety and we all know that we have to pick those exercises that we enjoy and will stick with. We also know that it’s important to combine aerobics with strength training. There are no right or wrong answers; simply what you find most enjoyable for exercise.
Avatar f tn Nothing is guaranteed with this disease, and sometimes even the very best of management doesn't work. It really depends how much working kidney tissue is left undamaged. The focus of management and treatment is to relieve stress on the kidneys, so that they can function for longer. There is no stopping the degeneration, but it can be slowed down. Let me have all the info you can ...

Avatar f tn Hi there, Well welcome GE! My you do have a lot going on, and this dx must of been a blow to you. I have a few questions. Did you start the Rebif? If so, when did you start? I'm asking this because I'd like to get a feel for where you are at w/the meds, how long it's been, etc. Sounds like you were dx'd quickly. What did the reports say in reference to demyelinating lesions? ARe they in your brain and your spine? If you are able, please describe your pain.
Avatar n tn You are not being selfish as long as your baby has some good times.does she get excited when she sees you? is her appetite?...does she still love to lay by your side? As long as she does these things and is not constantly out of breathe..she still loves being with you, I would not cut it short. will know..when she finds no joy in being with you. Good luck and God bless you and your baby...
Avatar m tn In many cases, late-onset (mid to late life) kidney disease can be prevented by changing how our dogs are fed, how we take care of their health (particularly dental health) and ow much we guard them against toxic substances (including some annual boosters, flea control, household cleaners and garden insecticides). The latter is difficult, of course, because we use many harmful chemicals in our homes every day - and there are a whole range of harmful toxins that occur naturally in our world.
21064 tn?1309312333 I take Sotalol for afib and tach-no real side effects. It does work well-it is a beta blocker/anti-arrthyhmic. I used to take Coreg for heart failure-no side effects until they upped my dose, then hypotensive and dizzy alot.I was on digoxin to slow my rate, which it did too well.I used to take Profafenone for arrthymhias-no side effects for me. I take red yeast rice and fish oil for cholesterol (both with my cardiologists blessing).
Avatar f tn Things do change quickly with this dreadful disease, so it's worth having regular blood checks (at least every couple of months), and then amending diet and medication promptly if required. Keep us informed how things go and feel free to ask any further questions at any time. If you can get back with answers to things asked above, that would be great.
Avatar f tn We don't have any plans for further blood work unless we can get her eating. Since we work unfortunately it's hard to get the food in her during the day. If we can get her eating, we will definitely start monitoring phosphorus, specific foods and additional supplements. Just praying her time is not up quite yet. Let us know if you have any other suggestions. Thanks again!
Avatar f tn As her bowel habits are now settled I have started her on her course of Doxycycline 2 capsules per day for 20 days so we will see how she goes on them. Here are Baillies blood results. Glucose -2.0 Urea- 32.8 Creatinine- 218 Phosphorus-3.51 Calcium - 2.99 Total protein - 78.4 Albumin- 42.9 ALT- 252.3 ALP- 507 Bilirubin- 2.7 Cholesterol- 11.22 Amylase- 522 Urine protein creatinine ratio 0.8 Don't know what any of these mean apart from high in comparison to the reference values on the paper.

179332 tn?1273250959 scared to take next one prescribed!! I've been to an Allergist this past week for skin testing... but, does anyone else suffer from BP med allergies? I get itchy all over, cheeks swell, face puffs a bit and face and neck turns bright red...Help!
Avatar m tn Reason being is that If I can eliminate a problem with my heart at an early age that would help me live a better life. If I go with out any medication and see how my heart does, maybe I could catch an SVT and get it fixed.
6839387 tn?1385681693 We have a vet appointment on Friday afternoon for a recheck and bloodwork. What should I do until then? How do I keep him comfortable? If he does not eat tomorrow or keeps barfing, I think I will say goodbye on Friday. That is unimaginable to me. But I can't watch him suffer. If I do have him put down, should I bring my girls in to that appointment so they can see he has passed on? I hate this so much. Thank you, again.
