High Blood Pressure Hemorrhoids
A blood pressure reading has two numbers: a systolic blood pressure and a diastolic blood pressure. The systolic blood pressure is the maximum pressure the blood exerts on the vessels when the heart is beating. The diastolic blood pressure is the pressure the blood exerts on the vessels in between heartbeats. Hypertension, or high blood pressure, begins when the systolic blood pressure remains above 140 or when the diastolic blood pressure remains above 90. Hypertension can be a result of increased blood flow through vessels or increased resistance to ...Read more

Was on clonadine for high blood pressure. 03 3 times a day. Switched pcp s how do you wein off this horrible drug, from my position? HELP?
Easy, decrease dose/: Day about 1/4 to 1/3 at a time (split pills), check BP response a few times a day over the next several days & then similarly decrease again. Clonidine in effect fools brain stem control that BP is higher than it really is. Thus if dose ↓ed to rapidly, brain perceives a sudden BP drop, tightens arterioles body wide & drives BP ↑. If you are monitoring BP, you can see ↑es & adjust accordingly. ...Read more
I'm supposed to take 1 pill of Levothyroxine/150mg in a day.....but accidentally took 2 because I mistook it for my high blood pressure medicine. I s?

As always, take any drug with caution esp. At the beginning of its use. ...Read more
