How long should someone take blood presure medication? What is the difference between exforge and exforge htc? And for how long should some one be takten it. Should they continue even if the BP goes down to normal?

2 or 3 ingredients: Exforge is a combo of amlodipine and valsartan. Exforge hct (amlodipine and hydrochlorothiazide and valsartan) is the same plus hydrochlorothiazide. One needs lifetime BP control. Whether with Exforge or different medicine: whatever it takes. If BP normalizes (let's say, with weight loss), then the medicine can be reduced or even stopped as long as BP stays normal. Let me add: Exforge is insanely expensive. There are far cheaper effective meds. ...Read more

My insurance/TRICARE doesn't kick in until SEP so my child will be almost 6MO by the time he gets his 4MO shots.  Is that alright?

Should be : That should be fine although some entities are very solidly behind an arbitrary immunization schedule and that will put your little one behind on the schedule. Obviously if delayed the shots don't work until later so try to avoid exposing the little one to others that might be contagious with anything. Could pose increased risks with certain (especially foreign) travel. Try to stay on schedule ...Read more

Depends: This is another combination drug. It is probably safe in breastfeeding although we have no clear studies to say so. One of the medications though has been shown to cause renal and heart problems when taken in the second and third trimesters. We don't recommend taking while pregnant. If you are on this med and get pregnant, call your doctor right away but don't come off of it until they say so. ...Read more
