Suggest Dosage For Aldactone
Presently I take 120 mg Dilthiazem, 1/2 40 mg LASIx, 2 2.5 mg Eliquis. A new cardiologist prescribed 1/2 25 Aldactone to also take. I drink beet juice every day. Should I add this Aldactone for blood pressure with these other meds for blood pressure unless it gets to a certain elevated point? I take my blood pressure at home and it's usually pretty good--like 133 and 80.
Please give your opinion about what I am doing. Want to exercise but don't want to do anything too strenuous for that aneurysm.
Are you really there? I have never done this before.
Please continue Aldactone as prescribed
Thak you for trusting HCM
Since you have been diagnosed with an aneurysm, it is best to maintain systolic blood pressure in the range of 110-120 mm of Hg to prevent aneurysm rupture.
Since your Systolic blood pressure is in currently in 130s, it is best to continue Aldactone as prescribed.
Limit exercise activity to brisk walking for 15-20 minutes. Do not over exert. Make sure that your heartbeat does not go over 100 beats/ minute.
Minimally invasive endovascular surgical repair is now available for thoracic or abdominal aortic aneurysm. Endovascular Surgery is done through small incision via groin.
