Hydrochlorothiazide and asthma

Common Questions and Answers about Hydrochlorothiazide and asthma


Avatar n tn My lab results are always flipping back and for between normal and borderline and the endo will not give me any meds because of this. I too want to know if this is what could be causing this.
Avatar n tn Metoprolol is selective, but not entirely so; thus, asthma worsens in some people given this “selective” medicine and you may be one of them. Your doctor may have prescribed the metoprolol for both relief of the syncope and treatment of your hypertension. There are many other anti-hypertensive medicines that will control your hypertension without aggravating your asthma.
369861 tn?1306279286 This all started with my potassium being low and being hypoglycemic. The endo doctor took me off all diuretics so that i could take the renin and aldesterone tests. Does the potassium have anything to do with the thyroid and why did the endo take me off all diuretics to take the two tests. Doesn't he realise that my body would retaing the water and the result of edema? Just wondering?
Avatar n tn On 100mcg Synthroid for hypothyroidism and 25mg Hydrochlorothiazide for mild elevation periods in blood pressure. I have been getting PVC's for about 8 years now and never knew what it was until last year. I have wore halters before, had ECG's, EKG's, done the treadmill test and all that and nothing conclusive has come out of it except PVC's. I get flutters with the PVC's frequently and it scares the heck out of me.
369861 tn?1306279286 Advair 100/50 mg Atenelol 50 mg Celebrex Diovan HCT 320/25 mg Hydrochlorothiazide 25 mg Norco Soma I am sick and tired of this entire thing and I just don't know which way to turn. Everytime I turn around i'm being sent to another doctor and no one seems to understand what I'm going through. They just tell me that I need to lose weight and everything will be ok. Thank for all that you do and your listening.
Avatar n tn I find I react to the inert ingredients (thankfully I have not had hives or joint pain but I do get asthma attacks, a bloody nose and horrible migraines.) Inert ingredients I have learned to watch out for-- sodium laural(th) sulfate-- this is a powerful detergent and is used in labs to break down human skin cells to look at under the microscope, talc-- this is said not to be used as a powder because it can increase the likelihood of ovarian cancer, gluten, and any milk product.
Avatar m tn My husband has asthma and uses proventil and also had nasal polyps and uses flonase. He has had 4 lower back surgeries and 2 on his neck. His neck and lower back are fused. Last May he went into anaphylactic shock from taking Aleve (Naproxen). This past January he went into shock again to a prescribed antibiotic, Avelox. A week ago he had an alllergic reaction to the first two pills of a medrol pack..we counteracted it with benadryl melt tabs and shot him with an Epi Pin.
Avatar m tn Please help I'm sooo scared that this is going to take me away from my family... Forgot to mention that I am a 24 year old male about 5'9 160lbs and have asthma. I use to smoke but since this news was broken to me I have quit... I also have a family history of heart issues but none this soon in life.
Avatar n tn I have asthma, too so my doctor is reluctant to prescribe me a beta blocker even though I took Labetalol and hydrochlorothiazide during pregnancy and did well. He told me I can switch to Verapamil (a calcium channel blocker) if I want to. He didn't even bother explaining it to me. Does anyone have any experience taking this medication? Pros and Cons to consider? From what I've read, it isn't typically used for supression of palpitations so I am not sure how it's going to help.
Avatar n tn Still having shortness of breath,red chest,increased palpatations and skipped beats,usually 5 to 6 hr. after mild exercise. also had asthma test.the dr just gave up they don't know the cause but i want to do things very liminted due to shortness of breath. could it be the drugs are not out of my system yet since my heart rate is still normal?
Avatar f tn I was hospitalized recently for back surgery and my potassium was found to be low (possible cause). I was taking hydrochlorothiazide HCTZ which is a diuretic and even though I was on 20 meq of potassium daily I still had low potassium. At present I have been taken off HCTZ yet I'm still taking potassium. I will go for a blood level as too much potassium can cause cardiac arrest as can a low level. Good luck to you.
535089 tn?1400677119 These are often prescribed for runners, sports injuries to joints, and those suffering from arthritis. Syva labs has recently reworked its Cannabinoid test and claims to have eliminated this problem. But a Science magazine article (July 8, 1988) lists Ibuprofen as cross reactive. Under the new government guidelines THC testing levels will be reduced to 50 nanograms. Many more THC false positives can be expected in 1994. Dristan Nasal Spray, Neosynephren, Vicks Nasal Spray, Sudafed, etc.
168348 tn?1379360675 Three of them that I'm on apparently are bad for kidney stone formation and other stuff, HydrochloroTHIAZIDE, Metoprolol and Spironolactone. I'm also on Advair, Amlodipine Besaylate, Clindamycin Phosphate, Tretinoin gel, Noritate, Benzol Peroxide, Wellbutrin XL, and Cymbalta. I have asthma, allergies, high blood pressure, Seasonal Affective Disorder, and Atophic Dermatitist.
Avatar n tn First line therapy for hypertension is diuretics. Hydrochlorothiazide is commonly used which is cheap and effective. Beta blockers are used as second line therapy, atenolol and metoprolol are some common names. Hormone replacement therapy is not felt be effective in preventing cardiovascular disease in women. I am also not familiar with bloodletting therapy, but it is not used in the treatment of menopause.
Avatar n tn Low magnesium is common in conditions linked to chronic inflammation, including heart disease, hypertension and diabetes. Hydrochlorothiazide can also lower blood potassium, sodium, and magnesium levels. Magnesium deficiency is a known cause of Mitral Valve Prolapse and asthma.
Avatar f tn The only think bothering me now that I am 63 is that I need to exercise, but am frighted to, as I sometimes get light headed and do not want to faint while alone. I also have asthma and am sometimes short of breath but do not know which disease to put the blame on or both.
148057 tn?1231430591 So their primary treatment for menieres is allergy shot treatment along with hydrochlorothiazide 50 mg and papaverine. This actually seemed to work somewhat. Bur, here’s the cruel part, you can not get papaverine anymore because the manufacture stops making it. I have noticed that my hydrochlorothiazide treatment is not as effective anymore without the papaverine. Papaverine enabled the hydrochlorothiazide to get into my inner ear and keep the fluid out.
1285653 tn?1288362229 I took different doses of topamax and had horrible cognitive side effects. Currently taking zonisamide, voltaren, atenolol, amitryptalline, hydrochlorothiazide, and I feel like I'm forgetting one..but I'm probably due for another change because they've stopped working again..
Avatar n tn Dr. I am a male age 51 who has had a problem with "deep breathing" upon exercising. I've always exercised and recently had a stress test and I am fairly healthy. My height is 6'4" and my weight is 220lbs and doesn't change much from year to year. I drink about 4 to 5 beers a week. When I was younger, age 10 or so I had the same problem with "deep breaths" I could not run as fast or as far as the other kids.
Avatar n tn The hacking spells are becoming more often and lasting longer, and becoming harder and harder to keep her from coughing (with cough syrup etc). The one she is going through right now has lasted 2 weeks. The vet gave us antibiotics and a strong cough syrup. I also upped the water pills. Its not as bad, but not completely gone. She's just doped up 24/7 now. I just feel helpless. I don't want to see her suffer, if she is.
Avatar n tn I just turned 31 yrs old, I have four kids, and with the exception of my allergies and asthma I'm in pretty good health, even if I'm slightly overweight.
Avatar n tn It's gotten to the point where I do not expose my chest/neck ever - and cover up whenever I can. I had read once that taking Niacinimide could help - and I've been taking about 1000mg of it for a few months, but am not seeing much improvement. Anyone with any help or suggestions I would REALLY appreciate it.
Avatar n tn It scares me, especially since my husband had brain surgery less than 2 years ago- (symptoms completely different of course) I am 35 years old, the only time I remember hitting my head really hard is when I was in elementary school and I fell and hit my head on a tile floor. I have had a history of passing out and having seizures but the doctors never figured out for sure what caused it and it hasn't happened for a few years.
