I have been experiencing hair loss since I started taking amlodipine and atelenol for my blood pressure medication I have been taking the medicine for about 2 yrs and decided to go completely bald because of the hair loss.... I plan to have medication switched... Will my hair grow back after I discontinue the medication
I am a 59 y/o female who started having occasional to frequent PVC s. I had a holter and stress test and was told they are benign and I have to live with them. I have been on Toprol XL for 25 yrs given for rapid heart rate. Decreasing caffeine to 1 cup per day and cigarettes to 10/day has not helped. Increasing Toprol caused low BP and decreased HR. Tried Atenolol with same response. Cardiologist will see me in 6 mos. Any comments?
okay, i just turned 64 yrs. female, kept in shape most of my life altho l had a 3 1/2 hr. ortho procedure and rotor cuff and alna tendon tear repair 2 1/2 years ago, now I ve been very stressed my husbasnds adopted daughter and the care of her infant son whose way too large for me. My whole body buzzes at night and the heart starts pounding for nothing. Ive been prescribed menaloland my doctor changed it to atenolol 50mg.is it good for afibe treatment as well as high blood pressure. the highest was 139/89.
A 5 6 , 210 lb., 64-year-old male business executive had a physical exam prior to his retirement from corporate work. His blood pressure was 180/115 on three separate days. Further examination showed normal to low plasma renin activity, elevated total peripheral resistance (TPR), cardiac output (CO) of 7.2 L/min, x-ray evidence of left ventricular hypertrophy, retinal hemorrhages, and mild polyuria. Recommended therapy was weight reduction to his ideal level, a low-salt diet ( 2 gm/day sodium), prudent exercise, and a reduction in alcohol consumption ( 3 oz whiskey/day). This change in lifestyle did little to change the condition. Medication was initiated in the form of an oral diuretic and progressed to a beta-blocker; eventually a vasodilator was included to reduce the blood pressure to 140/90. 1. What is the diagnosis for this individual?
Hi, yesterday I donated blood, but as usual they take a bp reading and it read 142/56. I have never had the diastolic that low. I do have a bit of high blood pressure and am on Atenolol 25 mg/daily. However, in the last week have been experiencing some flutters and skipped beats senstations. Might this be an indication of anything serious?
hi. my blood pressure continues to fluxuate reaching as high as 168 over 100 like right now, 4 am. I have been on 3 BP meds and none of them kept m BP down below 140-150 over 90 s. The Dr. was going to prescribe beta blockers, but I choose not to continue that route. I am currently seeing a naturopath who is helping me with a natural med: carditone. I am also going to have a sleep study done next week. I have become less active as I have to have hip surgery, bone on bone in my right hip, so I cannot even walk around a block. I have intense stress at my live-in job and am not sleeping, thus the sleep study idea. My main concern is waking with these very high #s and this persisting. I mean how long can you keep having these #s?
My heartbeat wakes me up in the mornings starting around 2am. The rate is at least 90 as it is most hours of the day. On occasion my heart rate is 70 and normal. My heart rate increases and pounds when I move in the bed or get up and walk. Happens several nights a week. Doctor put me on Zoloft because he said this was being caused by anxiety. The zoloft works fine for about 2 weeks @ 25mg but just becomes ineffective. I wore a holter monitor and took a stress test. Cardiologist says my heart rate is a little high but otherwise everything else is fine. Put me on metoprolol. Seems to work but makes me short of breath. Had to quit. Blood pressure fluctuates. Sometimes 120/70 sometime 150/90. This is very confusing. Anxiety or something else?
I have atrial fibrillation and a low pulse rate (45 - 55) when at rest. I can get it into the mid 90's when exercising. I'm 73 years old. My cardiologist wants to implant a pacemaker and is talking about using either Tikosyn (Dofetilide) or...
I was diagnosed with attrial flutters ( arrhythmia ) and the cardiologist did a cardio version and a subsequent EKG showed the condition was corrected. The doctor has me on Xarelto and a beta blocker . I feel fine and I am wondering if I can drink...
