Molecular targeting: These agents are designed to selectively knock out key pathways your tumor may use to grow. Presumably you already had your tumor tested for these different mutations.

Why tyramine contraindicated with mao inhibitor?

Why tyramine contraindicated with mao inhibitor?

Will cause severe BP: Tyramine in large doses can raise your blood pressure, that can cause a stroke and death. Small doses don't do that because there is enough MAO in your intestinal tract to metabolize the tyramine. When you take a MAO inhibitor, tyramine is no longer metabolized in the gut, so it is free to raise your blood pressure to a very high level. This is less likely to happen with topical MAO called emsam. ...Read more

Explain ACE inhibitor use as a anti hypertensive?

Relaxes vasc muscle: Angiotensin i is a hormone that is converted to angiotensin ii with the help of the angiotensin converting enzyme (ace). Angiotensin ii is a very powerful constrictor of vascular muscle and in doing so increases the pressure inside the vessels (the blood pressure). If you inhibit (or neutralize) the ace then you don't produce as much angiotensin ii and the BP does not increase. ...Read more

Is it okay to combine h2 blockers like Zantac (ranitidine) with proton pump inhibitors (ppi)?

Dear doc, is cod liver oil safe to take with: 1. bp meds (beta blockers, calcium channel blockers) 2. proton pump inhibitors & 3. VitD3 supplements?

Dear doc, is cod liver oil safe to take with: 
1. bp meds (beta blockers, calcium channel blockers)
2. proton pump inhibitors & 
3. VitD3 supplements?

Yes: It's fine to take with the blood pressure medications and the proton pump inhibitor. I would probably stop the vitamin D supplement as cod liver oil has vitamin A and D as the main vitamin sources. Vitamin D is one you can get in trouble with because it is fat soluble and can accumulate in your organs if you take too much. ...Read more

Is ACE inhibitor such as captropil effective as an antihypertensive or everyone?

Is ACE inhibitor such as captropil effective as an antihypertensive or everyone?

1size never fits all: In medicine, one size doesn't fit all. An ace inhibitor may be more appropriate if you have diabetes, since it can protect the kidneys from diabetic damage. If you have cardiac problems, a beta blocker may be more appropriate. Sometimes, a pt needs to use more than one HTN medication. This is why you & your doctor should discuss which blood pressure med is best in your p[articular case. ...Read more
