How long does it take for avapro to work

Common Questions and Answers about How long does it take for avapro to work


Avatar m tn The problem in listing blood pressure meds that you can take is that there are a lot of them and people respond differently. In addition, the doctor usually picks a certain medication or a certain category of medications for a reason. You are on a calcium channel blocker but none of us knows why your doc picked that drug. We would be taking stabs in the dark suggesting any number of drugs that may not be indicated in your case.
Avatar f tn The problem with Clonazepam, though, is that it will stop working, so you have to take a small dose and taper off it when you don't need it so that it will work when you have another "seizure" episode. I, too, am trying to find out what can better help. Sleeping well and avoiding lots of sensory stimulation (I wear earplugs a lot) helps.
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 n tn being 68. What does low pressure mean? I am not 100% sure what they are referring to. It may be a pressure wire that measures the pressure proximal and distal to the obstruction to determine its clinical (physiologic) significance. 3. What are your thoughts on a Cardiac MRI showing things a Cath will not pick up?
Avatar f tn today and my heart weaps for the elderly people who are being pumped with meds they probably don't even need and some who have probably went to an early grave because of it. Girl, it has been a long trip for me and I know that I still have a long ways to go to total well-being....but I am just thankful that I am headed in the right direction now.
Avatar m tn Robert Menendez and Frank Lautenberg -- each had appealed to the FDA on ReGen's behalf, according to accounts last year from Rothman and spokesmen for the three others. In a statement Thursday, the FDA said it is taking steps to revoke Menaflex's approval, although it also plans to meet with the company to discuss what data would be needed to prove the device is actually safe and effective. An FDA spokesman said the agency has revoked device approvals before, although the step is rare.
Avatar m tn 5 but I found one should not be on a diuretic with an LVOT obstruction so I asked him to switch me to Avapro and take a mild diuetic, separtely,if I need it. Chris, I cannot tolerate Lipitor or Zocor but I do tolerate Crestor 5mg. well and this has done the job brining my lipids down well. Please talk this all over with your CC doctor first. They are the experts and follow up with your Locals. Again, I am glad to see you post. God Bless.
214864 tn?1229718839 I am tolerating Zetia, but it does make me feel like ****. I have stopped it for a while just to experiment. My total C and tri's are lower than they have been in 10 years. My total C is 287 and tri's are 800. The new direct ldl testing was not done so my ldl level was not checked, due to the tri's being >400 (the Friedman formula for calculating C doesn't work when tri's are >400).
Avatar n tn I also take Avapro for BP even though I never had high BP but Doc. wants to keep it lower than what I had. I also take Tiazac, Lipitor, and Coumadin. A consultation with Mayo Clinic confirmed my dx of dystolic dysfuntion and the sick sinus. And when I feel good and that's most of the time, I'm very active. Walked 2+ miles today. Take care.
Avatar f tn Hi, How are you? I'm sorry to hear what you have been through for the last 25 years. It is good to know that the results of the diagnostic tests done were normal. As mentioned by Tarea, avoiding the triggers may help. A headache journal may or the migraine tracker in this forum may help identify the triggers so that you could avoid the attacks.
Avatar n tn Also, I have been told by two different doctors in past years to always take a good CoQ10 everyday for my heart. Is this not correct? Right now I am taking Quione Gold 100 mg.
Avatar f tn Does anyone ever get the "scary"pvcs?? I classify them as the annoying ones, which are the ones where they are small and a little annoying, then the big ones, which are a HUGE thump and then the scary ones.. where out of the blue you will get one sooooo severe, you think this is it, I am dying.. you get disoriented for a moment jump out of your skin and then the hardest thump hits you?? I am scared to death of these.. the others are bad and scary enough..
Avatar n tn All the information is very helpful. It really does make me less scared. Also, it really helps to understand what it means. I have never had trouble with my thyroid so no I have not had rai treatments. I'm not even sure what that is. Do you mean radiation? Thank you for your words of comfort. Life goes on. Since all the deaths there has been 7 babies born in our family! That makes all of us smile.
Avatar f tn I was given a script for Zanax, but reluctant to take it. My husband requires alot of care, and I am afraid it will knock me out. I took it years ago for panic, and it made me sleepy. I get minor skips when I get upset sometimes. Have for years... just have not had the bigger skips. Does anyone else haev skips/palpitations like this? I think I remember having one or two before recently, and telling my husband I thought it owuldnt stop skipping, but it was a long time ago.
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 n tn i had skipped beats, anxiety you name it, i was in places that if something happened they wouldnt find me for weeks, so you can imagine what was going through my head, i also still toady take Zoloft, i find it really helps me, but it takes time for the body to get used to, but it takes the edge off things, also i found that gaining knowledge about the problem, helps to deal with the situations, it gives me reasurance that i know i mostly over react, i was the same i could not go anyway unless t
Avatar n tn Have had a septoplasty in recent days (out of hospital only last Saturday). My nose is still recovering, but airflow is a lot better. Sadly, the sense of pressure in the ears/temples is still there, though I know it will take about 4 weeks for the nose soft tissue to "calm down". Some comments to add to those from John500 and burtonsic. 1) do not consume any "diet" type products at all - no saccharine, aspartame etc. Has set me thinking about what else might be in my diet.
Avatar f tn I know that I am very sensitive to colon and gastric polyps and hope that this is what is going on and eventually I will be able to talk my gastro guy to put the tube in again and take another has not been a long time since that was done. Whenever the polyps (that I grow pretty regularly i.e. one or two a year) are removed, the pain goes away. I guess that what I am saying is that this pain could easily be referred pain from the stomach or esophagus.
Avatar n tn i t would take too long to type all the info in here so if you want to email me i would gladly give you my number to discuss. i know how concerning it is to live like that and how it impacts you and those around you. my email is christina_95831@yahoo.
Avatar n tn Eggs do not raise BG rising BG could mean you did not take your Levimir. wait till tonight to take it. Do NOT take it now. AGAIN what did you eat for lunch (how many carbs). did you take humalog before lunch (how much)? I dont know about the shaking you could have other problems. Rabidly changing BG can cause that, but it does not look like you have that ether.
Avatar n tn If you don't push the holter button for every pvc they tell you you have pvc's without symptoms??? The tech told me not to push the button for every event...that it would make it to difficult for them to read it. ugh.I ran out of room on the card to fill out. And at the bottom I said I had to many to report each of them. Hopefully they will give me something, because my symptoms are getting worse revery day. It is scaring my grand kids and that I will not have.
Avatar f tn Otherwise, if youve had a pretty normal cardiac eval it might be of help to look through the post to see how others in this forum have dealt with this very common problem. good luck good luck.
Avatar n tn I started on the magnesium about 2 weeks ago but haven't experienced a decrease yet. Does anyone know how long it takes to improve with the magnesium? Well prayers for all of us with PVC's.
Avatar m tn Sorry keep my arms above my head to stretch out the vegas nerve and take the pressure off my chest. It does help.
61536 tn?1340701763 I took apart all my toys as a kid because I wasn't just content to play with something, I had to know the mechanics of it. Why does the doll talk? Why does the car go when you wind it backward and let go? How do the wheels on this thing stay on it? And this is exactly the same. SOMETHING causes these PACs. While we all know the traditional triggers, something is changing that makes us more prone to them. WHAT!!? A combination?
Avatar n tn I designed microcontamination analysis systems for the semiconductor industry for 15 years - I always want to see the data. But when it came time to make a decision whether or not I needed to have surgery to repair my 5.
Avatar n tn I assume they've put you on some type of beta blocker, make sure that you tolerate the one they have you on well, it can take several months before you know. It might be prudent to find a surgeon now, in case your aneurysm reaches 5.0 cm. The chief concern is to find a surgeon who has done a LOT of these cases and will be able to deal with any unforseen issues that arise at the time of the surgery.
Avatar n tn This is really affecting my ability to work. I have to talk to people, but limit it to avoid the embarrassment of explaining the whole situation so they won't think I'm contagious. I've wondered if Acupuncture might help? Has anyone tried that?
Avatar n tn As far as the ablation ultimately it is going to be between God yourself and your doctors. It does work for some that are chronic but I can tell you that it does not work for some others. A friend of mine had it supposedly by one of the best in the field who guaranteed a good result and he supposedly did not get it right and it did not help him and he now regrets it. Surgery is a risk no matter what it is so you always take a chance. It should be your last option.
