Low price BP prescription ideas

Am on an ARB (was on a beta blocker but taken off because of COPD ) - there are no ARB generics because it is somewhat of a new med so it s expensive. If a person has COPD what other type of blood pressure medicine might be available other than an ARB - I m on Benicare. Yes, I m talking about prescription - not fish oil (I already take that too). Seeing doctor on Monday and wanted to see what he says about ideas others may have. Actually, I work at the hospital and the physician is there also and IS a very good and caring doctor. From what I understand, because of COPD and the fact that you will cough more with the ACE as opposed to the ARB is the reason.

I just have a simple question about a problem my mom is having. All of a sudden she feels pressure in her eyes, ears and nose. She starts to get dizzy and her legs start to hurt. Her usual Blood Pressure is somewhere 120/80, but these days it s been pretty low--last results were 99/56 (it can get as low as 80/45). If you could please give me any idea what could possibly this be. Thank you.

I recently had an ECG after an abnormal EKG. The ECG showed vent. rate 108bpm Sinus tachycardia, PR interval 158 ms, possible left atrial enlargement, QRS duration 88 ms , nonspecific ST abnormality, QT/QTc 368/493 ms, abnormal ECG, P-R-T axes 70 48 58 and prolonged QT. The cardiologist didn t seem very concerned and felt the abnormality was because of the medication I was taking - remeron for sleeping; I suffer from chronic insomnia. I have been on this medication for over two years and have never had any side effects or problems with it. In the past three-four months, however, I have been experiencing chest pains, some severe which is why I went to my physician to get the first EKG which showed a fast heart beat and was referred to the cardiologist for an ECG, EKG and a stress test. I was only on the treadmill for maybe 4 1/3 minutes before I experienced SOB and chest pains. They repeated the ECG and I was told it was abnormal and to discuss my medications with my psychiatrist and that I had nothing to worry about. When I see abnormal ECG, EKG and am taking nitro tablets with a family history of heart disease (father COPD, CHF and angioplasty; grandfather died of a heart attack), I have a tendency not to believe the doctor. I have not even been contacted by my physician for a follow-up visit. Should I be concerned. Cancer also runs in my family; my father died of colon, liver CA and I am breast cancer survivor. I d appreciate your comments. Should I seek another opinion? Thanks, Mary Kopco YYYY@YYYY I am a 61 y.o. white female, 137 lbs w/ hx of cancer (bilateral mastectomy and hysterectomy for CA of uterus), osteoporosis and osteoarthritis, high cholesterol (328), allergic to any statin drugs, being treated with Zetia 10 mg 1 x/day. Presently taking nitro tabs for chest pain, oxybutityn for overactive bladder, clonazepam 1mg 3x/day for anxiety and depression. I look forward to your response. Thank you.
