Angiotensin Converting Enzyme Ace Inhibitor Blood Pressure Agent
Can you tell me how angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor(ace)inhibitors modulate stress on the heart and blood pressure?
Blood pressure is a measurement of the force placed on the blood vessels and is comprised of the "systolic" pressure (the top number on a blood pressure meter) which is the peak pressure when the heart is pumping, and the "diastolic" pressure (the bottom number on a blood pressure meter) which is the pressure during the resting phase ...Read more

Is digoxin gold standard in treating hf and a-fib? Cardiologist of my mom prefers digoxin over angiotensin-converting-enzyme inhibitors.
No: I think digoxin therapy should only be considered in patients who continue to have signs and symptoms in spite of proven available other therapies, such as b-blockers, acei/arb's and diuretics. The other area where digoxin may be helpful is af rate control although recent negative data in regards to mortality raise some concerns. ...Read more

Patient female 44 years old with angiotensin converting enzyme results show 75 h 9-67 u/l. Autoimmune disease?
Generally, is it true that ACE inhibitors as a class of medication have a fairly weak effect in reducing blood pressure in hypertension?
Vasodilators: They dilate blood vessels.Get a more detailed answer ›
Blood Pressure: Meds: Ace inhibitors block the conversion angiotensin i to angiotensin ii, which constricts the vessels, increases the following: salt retention in the kidney, sympathetic tone, aldosterone and ADH (vasopressin) (anti-diuretic hormone) secretion. The inhibition of this conversion decreases blood pressure and wall stress in the heart muscle. ...Read more

Yes.: There is no potential interaction.Get a more detailed answer ›
Any, if tolerated: Ace inhibitors are a cornerstone of almost any hypertensive patient, especially if a patient has diabetes or heart failure.

Have any undesirable effects been seen in long term use of the blood pressure drugs of the ACE inhibitor class?
Same as short-term: Analyses have not shown any clear risks, including with regards to risk of cancer. Risks over long-term appear to mimic that seen in short-term use (e.g. Risk of hi potassium, kidney function abnormalities); sometimes this can show up after years on the medicine. There may even be benefits to chronic use (apart from intended benefits), such as lower risk of diabetes or atrial fibrillation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can through any ordinary
urine or blood test be it confirmed/known if someone is taking Telmisartin or any other blood pressure drug to control BP?
Is it possible to combine my blood pressure drug: exforge, with other pain killers such as tylenol, (acetaminophen) panadol etc..?
Yes : This drug is a combination of amlodipine and valsartan. These are safe drugs with Tylenol. Panadol is also acetaminophen. Please do not take both . I would try to avoid NSAIDs such as advil (ibuprofen) as this can contribute to hypertension. Follow the label for correct dosing. The amount of Tylenol you can take is reduced with age and liver disease. ...Read more

Yes, off label.: The anti hypertensive medication Clonidine stimulates alpha2-adrenoreceptors in brain stem and activates an inhibitory neuron, resulting in a decrease in vasomotor tone and heart rate. It has been used off label with variable success to treat a number of different anxiety conditions. It has no fda indication to treat anxiety. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
