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.

Hi Doctor! I am 42 years old, weigh 88kg, Height 167cm. My blood pressure fluctuates between 130/100 and 140/110. I have been an athlete. After workout my bp comes down to 130/90. I don t feel any pain or strain. Even I have gone through TMT, ECG, Colour dropper but all reports are normal. Dr. prescribed me Almasar h 20 and Atorva 10. Yes that brings my bp to normal 120/80 but i feel low and lazy.

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 ?
