Losartan and lung cancer

Common Questions and Answers about Losartan and lung cancer


Avatar n tn I'am an LPN and I'm currently working on getting my RN in school, my brother was recently diagnosed with Lung Cancer and just 3 weeks ago my 52yo sister died suddenly. Not to mention I am a mother of 2 ages 4 and 7. I have explained this to my Cardiologist and he still says that it is the PAT's that are causing my anxiety not my anxiety causing the PAT's. I'm concerned about taking medication that will lower my B/P more than it already is. This is begining to effect my life drastically.
Avatar n tn I get winded walking a block and I'm afraid to exercise to be honest. The comments are hopeful and encouraging. I'm on losartan and lasix and thyroid. I tire easily. Thanks to everyone who wrote.
Avatar n tn I have talked to the neurosurgeon who did the surgery and he shrugged his shoulders and said I have no idea and sent me back to my neurologist. He gave me a series of injections in both shoulders and the pain stopped for a couple days but then came right back. Then we tried massage therapy, it helps but only for a short period.Then I have to go back to the massage therapist again and again, my insurance will not pay for that.
Avatar m tn As I tell everyone with dilated aortic roots, you need to investigate ARB therapy. ARBs (like telmisartan and losartan) and ACE inhibitors (perindopril in particular) have been shown to reduce aortic diameters in humans when taken in sufficiently high doses (at least the FDA-approved max). Research "losartan and Marfan" (even if you don't have Marfan syndrome) to learn more, or click my screenname to read previous posts on the topic.
Avatar n tn I had a lump in my breast and endometriosis prior to the episodes and my husbands ex wife was diagnosed with cervical cancer that spread to her brain. I was not sleeping and a bit of a hypochondriac at the time. I was 29 years old. It finally resolved itself. I think if you think that you can't breathe it becomes a self fulfilling prophesy. Your esophagus closes up on you.
179332 tn?1273250959 I developed this terrible rash on my legs along with sever swelling of my ankles and feet. I am a cancer survior and along with the chemo comes a decress in your immune system. I developed a rash not long after the chemo and found it was called granuloma annulara. That was 10 years ago. I thought I had the same rash again, but this time it was different because of the swelling. I went to my dermatologist and was put on meds for the rash as before but they didn't work.
Avatar n tn It started about 5 years ago when I would go over and help her because she had cancer and would not stop smoking! I finally stopped going to her apartment and eventually the gagging in my throat stopped at night. Then I found out I had advanced osteoporosis. I have high blood pressure and so it gets very complicated. I have not been able to take the meds for osteoporosis because I end up with it coming back up. Most likely will have to take injections instead.
Avatar m tn I also ran my other drugs pass them and they said no problem to those also -- Losartan, Trazadone, Oxycodone, Magnesium, and Chlorhexidine. I agree that it would be a good thing to simply take nothing other then the treatment drugs, but that's not a good idea for some of us. I started out with that good intention but when my BP hit 180-190/90/85 I realized what a mistake I'd made. This thread is confusing and probably a great example of how misinformation is spread.

Avatar n tn I am 25 years old and very healthy. I am not overweight, I work out regularly, eat healthy, don't smoke. For the past 3 months I have been having severe swelling in my left foot and ankle. At times the swelling continues into my calf and causes a discomfort. I first noticed the swelling after I got home from the gym one evening. I took my shoe off and my foot was huge for no reason. I have not had any injuries, insect bites or infections.
Avatar f tn If I cough it also gives a shooting pain. The pains shoot up from what feels like my left lung to my left shoulder and neck. 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.
Avatar n tn I am a cancer survivor and I noticed that I was smelling smoke too. So, being a patient and all, my oncologist was a bit concerned and had me do a bunch of tests including scans and could not find the problem. The only thing the scans revealed with an issue with my sinuses. So, he prescribed an antibiotic for sinusitis and lo and behold the smell went away! Not that this is everyone's problem... But this was mine and it has gone away, hopefully for good.
