I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

I have had severe pain in my arm, feet and lower back. Are these side effect of taking Canderstan Blopress 16 for my erratic BP ?

My doctor prescribed Canderstan Blopress 16 for my erratic BP but since taking it I have had severe pain in my arm, feet and lower back. I have suffered with some muscular pain before but it has been very severe since taking the drug and I am not aware of any physical strain which might have caused this. Is this a known side effect and if so will it continue or disappear in time?

Hi,

Back pain is a known side effect of candesartan. Usually this does not require discontinuation of therapy.

However, do consult your doctor regarding the same. He/she may prescribe an alternative anti-hypertensive drug.

Thank you for your comment but you did not say whether the side effects will disappear in time.
General & Family Physician Dr. Sheetal's  Response
As different patients respond differently to medications, it is difficult to say whether your back pain will continue or disappear with time.

If your back pain persists or becomes bothersome, please consult your treating physician.

Hello. I m trying to stop using my Fentanyl patch. The pain mgmt gave me 10 mg methadone q 12 h hour withdrawals. Uh....I can t and don t want this methadone. It seems to make me worse. So, when the horrible sickness/anxiety hit the last two times, instead of methadone I took half of a hydrocodoneand.25 MG s of my za ax. What I want to know is if I can take my meloxicam and gabapentin while the methadone is still in my system? Thank you.

I have been in pain management since 2007 because I need my knees replaced, 5 discs in my back fused. there are a few more thins but those are the main ones. I have been on methadone for over 3 years at 160mg. 4 10mg 4x a day. they just changed my medicine to give my body a break for a few months. they put me on exalgo er at first 3 16mg 1x in the morning. they tapered me off the methadone and tapered me on the exalgo er at the same time in a week. they told me I wouldn t have any withdrawal but I have had bad withdrawal even though I have another drug in my body. my b.p. has been normal and my pulse has to but ever since this my b.p. has been 167over140 and pulse at 120. it has varied the past 2 weeks but it has still been around these levels. Is it because of the withdrawal or from the exalgo? they gave me valium to help my body with it s cravings but it hasn t helped my blood pressure or pulse either. My question is what is causing it and when will it stop??
