Avatar m tn I was just diagnosed with T3 hyperthyroidism. Benicar almost gave me a heart attack on the first dose, only 20 mg. Does it worsen hyperthyroidism or cause heat intolerance? A guy uses Benicar off-label for chronic fatigue or something in the so called Marshall Protocol. While its effectiveness remains dubious. He claims Benicar reduces the need for exogenous thyroid hormones in hypothyroid patients even getting to the point of hyperthyroidism.
Avatar n tn Azor (amlodipine and olmesartan) is usually indicated for treatment of high blood pressure. Moderate food interaction with Azor may be seen with high dietary intake of potassium, especially salt substitutes. The consumption of grapefruit juice may also slightly increase plasma concentrations of amlodipine. However, data have been conflicting and it is recommended that side effects of amlodipine excess such as headache, hypotension, tachycardia, and edema is monitored regularly.

ESCITALOPRAM, QUETIATINE, TRAZEODONE, MIRTAZAPINE, CLONAZEPAM, BUSPAR, OLMESARTAN, NORTRIPITYLINE, PANTAPRAZOLE, LEVOTHYROXIN. How dangerous is this?

Avatar n tn Yes, Olmetec® (olmesartan) can cause cough but it sounds like you are being treated for a respiratory infection with an antibiotic and additional medicines to thin your mucus. If that is so, cough can sometimes last for weeks after an infection and, if a person has asthma, cough can last for months after an infection. You should consider trying a cough suppressant medicine, one that contains either codeine or dextromethorphan.
Avatar m tn Initially was put on temisartan 40mg by Doc, used it for 3-4 months and later dosage was reduced to 20mg but later switched to another medicine, olmesartan medoxomil hydrochlorothiazide (20+12.5) and since then using the same tablet till recently My readings were pretty normal and infact my doc was convinced and wanted to reduce my dosage to only olmesartan medoxomil. Of late i have developed severe anxiety disorder and panic attacks, so started using Inderal 20 on the advice of Psychiatrist.
Avatar n tn Benicar also belongs to this class. Azor contains a combination of amlodipine and olmesartan and this can cause an increase in pulse rate. If you have a high heart rate, you may benefit from a beta blocker. But please discuss the possibilities with your treating doctor. Regards.
Avatar m tn Later doctor found that it was because of left vertebral artery dissection. Since then I am taking ACITROM, Olmesartan tables. I have most of my weakness improved in few days. Except the mumness at right hand side. I had met a small accident one day prior to the incident. Also, Had neck injuries in the past. Will the repeated Trauma of the neck be the cause of my stroke? Or Hyper tension will be the cause? I did not have hyper tension history.
Avatar n tn There are many choices. I take Benicar HCT. Benicar (olmesartan) is in a group of drugs called angiotensin II receptor antagonists. It keeps blood vessels from narrowing, which lowers blood pressure and improves blood flow and it helps the kidneys to eliminate extra fluid. It has dropped my blood pressure from 140/85 to my latest 90 day average of 110/67. I have been stable at these numbers for 4 years and counting.
Avatar m tn Patients who are taking thyroid supplements should be aware that their need for those supplements may change within a day or two of starting olmesartan (Benicar)." "Patients have also noticed that their need for thyroid medication drops as they progress along on the Marshall Protocol. For this reason, physicians may need to monitor their patients' thyroid function more closely than they otherwise would.

7322762 tn?1390118231 If this drug is not suiting, other newer drugs like Olmesartan and Irbesartan can be used. The other drug which helps in BP due to CKD is ACE inhibitor like lisnopril, captopril, enalapril, and ramipril. So, please ask your doctor if you can be put on these. Other than that proper management of CKD also helps reduce the BP. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
Avatar m tn Chest discomfort occured daily since then so I went back to the doctor and he ordered me to have full diagnostic tests. He changed my meds and prescribed 40mg olmesartan while waiting for the results to ease the symptoms. After 3 days, chest pain and shortness of breath was significantly reduced however I became dizzy when standing from sitting or lying down position. Doctor said orthostatic hypotension but was probably just dehydrated.

18814286 tn?1468330348 Well firstly I would be very reluctant to stop the Olmesartan. Its been prescribed for good reason by your doctor. Well BP checks multiple times a day is far too much. You want to stop this routine? Best thing to do is take it like one day at a time. Except here its one hour at a time. Consciously say to yourself, each time you get the urge to check your BP, Ah sure i will check it in an hour. Just put off the moment, then each day go up an hour.
Avatar m tn Go cheese and milk free for 3 months and see the difference. My case is severe so I still take one med only. For me I have good experience with olmesartan generic also known as olmetec. TALK to your doctor to lower your meds and do lifestyle and changes in diet to improve blood and heart health.
2009161 tn?1327919295 Forget it..Never.. And hey there are a set of other medicines like Amlodipine Bisylate, Olmesartan Medoxomil tablets which are to be taken from a doctor's prescription or Advice. So these are also BP tablets which are effective compared to Losartan. I would suggest you to go for a Doctor's advice though.

Avatar f tn Olmesartan 20 mg, once daily... I'm really praying that he will get even better BP readings after his treatment for his Hep C...
5265383 tn?1483811956 While medication side effect may vary from one person to another, some side effect of Olmetec or Olmesartan include fatigue, cold or flu-like symptoms as well as inflammation of the lining of the nose or rhinitis and inflammation of the throat or pharyngitis. Apart from other issues such as diabetes, drinking plenty of fluids may be directly or indirectly related symptom to taking of this medicine. If it persists, it is best that you have this checked by your doctor for proper evaluation.
Avatar m tn Taken from: http://bacteriality.com/about-the-mp/ "The Treatment Patients on the Marshall Protocol take a medication called olmesartan (called Benicar in the United States), which is able to bind and activate the VDR by pushing 25-D and bacterial proteins out of the receptor. Patients also lower levels of 25-D in the body by avoiding the kinds of vitamin D present in various foods.
Avatar m tn Accumulating evidence now supports the observation that a number of autoimmune diseases can be reversed by restoring VDR function (using the VDR agonist olmesartan) along with antibiotics. This includes rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosis, sarcoidosis, scleroderma, psoriasis, Sjogren's syndrome, autoimmune thyroid disease, and type I and II diabetes mellitus (Waterhouse et al., 2009; Proal et al., 2013).
