My cardiologist recently prescribed Cartia 180mgxt caps once a day for high blood pressure he said I have, although w.o. any symptoms I felt. After a few weeks he then he upped it to two per day at the same dosage. Last reading at his office was 150/90. Now I m also supposed to additionally take Losartan 50mg once per day. I have not started that, and cut the Cartia back to one per day, because taking it seems to have brought on unaccostumed constipation, as well adding to my periodic dizzy spells, thought by my regular doctor to be a product of positional vertigo. Now I m thinking to stop the Cartia totally, although I ve seen some directives at this sight cautioning me not to stop the medication altogether, once taken. I m taking Cartia after warning the cardiologist that any hydrochlorothyside content would be awful for me, since I ve been plagued with painful kidney stones every 5 years or so since I was 19. I am now 75, active and otherwise healthy, and daily continue my work as a professional film editor. Question: Should I cut out the Cartia altogether, and search for another less side-effect laden blood pressure medicine?

For the past 2 years I ve been having this fast beating heart. It beats even when I am sitting or laying down. And it s starting to interfere with my life because I get so tired that I can t do anything. Sometimes it beats so fast that it causes me to have a panic attack. So I was wondering what it may be and how I can fix it. Plus I have heard of these things that are called Beta Blockers, I was wondering if they could be used for my condition. And I m 15 by the way, so it shouldn t be any severe heart problems or anything.

I was dispensed the wrong medication by Boots. I had been taking 100mg atenolol daily instead of 100mg of allopurinol for gout. I ended up in hospital bradycardic and, apparently, very close to an M.I. I only have one remaining kidney with mild hydronephrosis.I only took 2 doses and the last one I took was last Wednesday evening. I keeping getting a very lethargic, dizzy and going quite pale, whenever I get up to do something. Is it still normal to feel unwell after 5 days without taking the drug. I realise the half-life of atenolol is only 6 hours, so I am rather worried as to why I am still feeling similarly to how I was last week.
