Hi, with my current medical conditions i.e hypertension & on simvastatin, HCTZ (hydrochlorothiazide) & losartan medications, is it safe for me to try Garcinia Cambogia?
Not really because: Alternative medications have no safety profile and are not rigorously tested for safety by any agency. It has nothing to do with your blood pressure meds. If your goal is weight loss (usual reason why people want to take garcinia), there is no better method than a proper diet and regular exercise. Try cutting your food portions in half and see how that goes for a month. I'm sure you'll see results ...Read more
What would happen if you take a 1000mg each of the heart medications hydrochlorothiazide and metoprolol is?
I'm worried because I took my Hydrochlorothiazide/losartan 25/100 at about 6 pm yesterday and mistakenly took it again just now at 5 am. It's the only medication I take. I'm at work and have no way to measure my blood pressure. I don't have any other medi
HCTZ (hydrochlorothiazide) may make: you tired or light headed from low blood pressure. I would make sure to drink plenty of water, double the normal amount, and eat some salty foods right now until you can get your blood pressure checked. The Losartan is what will most likely drive your blood pressure down. Make sure you do not take that again for another 24 hours. ...Read more
They are different: Hctz (hydrochlorothiazide) is a mild diuretic that removes sodium from the body causing an increased volume of urine and lowers blood pressure by reducing the volume of 'salt water' in our circulatory system.

How long before hydrochlorothiazide works? My blood pressure was just a little high, so my doctor put me on just hydrochlorothiazide to see if it will work without other blood pressure drugs. How long before my blood pressure will go down?
Usually within days: Within a few days you should start to see an effect -- but, hctz, hydrochlorothiazide, is not a strong drug. Your best way to lower BP is to not exceed 1500 mg of salt per day and to exercise 30 minutes daily assuming your doctor is ok with these recommendations. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

BP med?: If the patient has angina, a beta-blocker may be the agent of choice, not necessarily oxenoprolol. If the patient has proteinuria, then either fosinopril (F) or telmisartan (T) would be excellent choices to reduce both the blood pressure. Felodipine and amlodopine can be used and may cause some leg swelling. Hydrochlorthiazide can be effective and causes loss of potassium and magnesium. Go for F. ...Read more
Diuretic: This medicine works through your kidneys to increase removal of salt and water from your blood stream. This will likely result in some increased urination for several hours. It lowers blood pressure, and may help with edema. Electrolytes, such as potassium and sodium, as well as renal function, will need to be monitored. ...Read more
