Brief Answer:
Possible side effects

Detailed Answer:
Dear sir, I have gone through your questions and I understand your concerns however some of the medications you are following might have side effects such as :
Temazepam can lead to the side effect of cardiac palpitations and elevated liver enzymes
diazepam can cause the side effect of cardiac palpitations , hypotension and urine retention
amatriptilline can cause the side effect of urine retention and can rarely cause hepatitis
diphenhydramine can rarely cause liver dysfunction Also using diphenhydramine , diazepam and temazepam together can lead to the side effects of drowziness, confusion and difficulty concentration.
I hope you find this helpful .

Brief Answer:
No

Detailed Answer:
Dear sir, hello again.. It is not recommended that you take all the medications together and it is recommended that you divide the medications through out the day.. It is also recommended that you follow up on your kidney functions tests including urea and creatinine and your liver functions tests including AST and ALT every 1-3 months .
Also tolerance to medications is variable from one person to another , it may not happen at all in some individuals while it can occur in others ..I hope you find this helpful

Severe kidney pain with history of stones have seen none pass, is it possible it's stuck. Tachycardic, with high blood pressure, usually hypotensive. Liver pain associates last labs show very high ALT, AST alkaline phos.

I'm 33 years old with low blood pressure every time I get it checked. The low blood pressure has been going on for years. I just thought I normally have low blood pressure. It was 92/50 las time it was checked. I am 5'2" 165lbs. I gained 15lbs with my pregnancy. My delivery lasted 33 hours and was very stressful. I have loridosis, back pain, heat sensations in my left leg, chest pain and shortness of breath. I just recently went to get checked out by the doctor about dizzy spells and my heart stopping and rapidly starting back. I was diagnosed with RBBB. I'm really scared, because I can feel that my heart is not working like it should. I have a lot of stress with family matters and I would say since I was 13 I've had ongoing high anxiety. I know that is not healthy. What would you say are the reasons that I have RBBB.
