Sir, I was having high blood pressure 140/100 max 1 year before then I asked by the Doctors to take Pinom 20 and Lipicure 10 mg once in a day for 2 months and then I came back to Haiti where there are no doctors availabe where I am posted . I continued for 2 month and then stopped to take . 5 -6 month my BP was normal all the time and then when I went to India i just went to see doctor for normal check up and they found that my BP was 140/100 ( may be due to Jet Lack reason bec North America and India s time difference are opposite ) and I was advised to continue with Telvas 40H and Lipicure 10 mg . when I came back to my place i.e Haiti my BP was always Low like 90/65 most of time . Then I called to doctor and he advised ,me take only telvas 40 without H but still it was low BP and when I called to same doctor to India he was not responding my phone . Then some of my relative told me to take Telvas 20mg..... Now I am taking Telvas 20mg and Lipicure 10. last month I took Lipid Profile where we found that no need to take LIpicure 10 mg and I stopped it. Now still my BP is low like 90-100 / 65-70. Then here in haiti , one doctor told me to split this Telvas 20 Mg and take half dose beacuse Telvas 20 mg is minimum dose available in the market. so I started to take half of Telvas 20 mg since 3 days and I didn t check my BP right now . But I am feeling some kind of movement at Right and Left side close to Kidney area, I really don t know the name so i mentioned near the kidney are. Please tell us is due to the half dose of Telvas 20 mg Medicine or it is normal .... This started from the same day when I started to take half dose of telvas 20 mg . I shall be very thankfull to you u help me bec here in Haiti i don t have anu other option .

Dr. Oz, I know you're show is geared mostly towards women but I really am in dyer need of help. I'm a 22 year old male and I'm currently taking two 20mg instant release Adderalls a day. My blood pressure is normal on a daily basis, but high blood pressure and heart disease does run in my family. My concern is in regards to Erectile Disfunction. It is a real self confidence killer! My penis doesn't get fully erect when I'm about to have sex, its hard but not where it can stay up the air hard..excuse the reference. Also some other times it will get hard, but it will not stay that way for long amounts of time. Does anyone know why this could be? I also have trouble staying hard. For example if it slips out, there is a switch of positions,or the slightest distraction, it wont remain hard. I take adderall but don't notice a difference in this when I take it and when I don't. I exercise regularly (4-5x a week) and eat relatively healthy(for a college student). I am stressed a lot and i know that could be a cause of my problems. but does anyone have any ideas? Also is it to early for someone my age (22) to take pills such as viagra or cialis? What are the long term side effects?

I am 74 years old and have experienced hot flushes since menopause (at age 54). I experience moderate to high blood pressure and most medications for this make my symptoms worse. I have heart palpitations during these uncomfortable symptoms, experience fatigue and have night sweats which wake me up. I have Sjoegren's Syndrome with Sicca, and Peripehral neuropathy and most other aging symptoms. I don't have dementia, thankfully, but I am curious as to whether hot flushes are impacting on my blood pressure and contributing to my anxieties or could it be caused by my thyroid? My tests show a normal reading for my thyroid. I also had cancer of the uterus, grade 1, and had everything removed nine years ago and have remained cancer free to date. I hope you can help me find a way to improve the situation as I don't have any blocked arteries or heart problems so it is a mystery to me. I am worried about the impact it may eventually have on my heart. Sincerely yours,

Hello.
I'm male.
I'm 45 years old and I got high pressure blood since 17. I am currently taking 5 drugs to control (not at all) my high pressure blood.
In a recent Renal Angiography was discovered that I have my left kidney hypotrophic with important loss of parenchyma in the middle and lower thirds.
Analyses of plasma renin revealed that is high.

This hypotrophic kidney (left) is working by 37% and 63% right according to a renal scintigraphy.
The recommendation of my doctor(nephrology) is to get me out my hypotrophic kidney to control the high pressure blood and avoid having to take so many drugs.

What is your opinion on this?
