Your blood pressure is a little bit low, so I do think that your symptoms are related to that. However, I would recommend that you talk with your doctor before making any changes to your medications.

Given the protein in your urine, the Olmetec that you are taking is probably more important of the two, so your doctor may want to stop the Diltiazem instead.

That being said, if you wanted to stop the Olmetec and just take the Diltiazem until you can talk with your doctor, that would likely be safe as well.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hi, I was just wondering is Humira can cause dizziness? I have been taking it now for about 3 years for severe RA and only recently I have noticed I am feeling fluish and dizzy quite often, if I sit still it isn t as bad but if I move around I feel quite a bit of nausea. I also just had a very bad infection that needed antibiotics which caused me to have to stop the humira for 4 weeks. I just started my injections again 2 days ago. Just wondering if this is normal or if it could be something to worry about?

My 17 1/2 year old son was placed on Invega. For awhile he did well; then he missed a few doses. When we resumed his proper dosing, he has started with severe side effects (I think of this drug) like restlessness, hallucinations, fantasies, cannot sleep, headache...very very severe. He calls his mother Mrs. Leno and his father Jay Leno...the doctor just says keep trying ...we re scared and frustrated. Please advise
