Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
The first dose of any anti hypertensives is known to cause a mild hypotension that is, a fall in blood pressure. If your child is not feeling dizzy then you can continue his treatment without worrying. If such episodes are repeated after 4-5 doses then consult your physician for reduction in its doses.

I am a 65 year old female who has been on bp medicine for many years. I take Indera120mg and, as of Tuesday, Benicar HCT 20 mg - previously just Benicar 20mg. My bp has been spiking at around 170/101 and then down to around 166/88. How long should it be for relief from the new medicine? Of course, when the bp get higher, I get nervous, and make it worse.

Sir, my is suffering from low b.p. since last 5 days and has a fear of death. It happened once earlier when she gave birth to my first kid who is now 6 years old. The Psychiatrist suggested Chlonotril 0.5 tablets at that time. Whenever she gets depressed, she uses this medicine. Now, even after using medicine for improving b.p. and chlonotril 0.5 simultaneously, her condition is not improving. She is 33 years old. Kindly advise what to do now.

Hello, I am on Warfarin for A-Fib. I had a bad cold and was coughing a lot. During one coughing fit I experienced a sharp pain and slight swelling just at the bottom of my rib cage. Applied ice and pain subsided but is painful to cough at all. That was about 5 days ago. Today I notice a huge bruise across my side and stomach. There is no pain except when I cough. I m aware of the bruising factor when taking warfarin, it s just the size of this bruise is alarming. Any thoughts ?
