Hi, with my current medical conditions i.e hypertension & on simvastatin, HCTZ (hydrochlorothiazide) & losartan medications, is it safe for me to try Garcinia Cambogia?

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

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

What are the high blood pressure medication licinopril and hctz (hydrochlorothiazide) the same?

What are the high blood pressure medication licinopril and hctz (hydrochlorothiazide) the same?

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. Lisinopril inhibits a certain specialized chemical reaction in our bodies that leads to a reduced retention of sodium in our bodies but also a reduced tension on our blood vessels, thus lowering blood pressure. ...Read more

Danger: One would never take a diuretic without a specific medical reason. It is not in any way going to assist with weight loss. Thinking that it could be of some weight loss benefit is incorrect thinking and a dangerous assumption. ...Read more

Can you tell me for hypertension which drug out of fosinopril, telmisartan, oxenoprolol, felodipine, hydrochlorothiazide, amilord?

Can you tell me for hypertension which drug out of fosinopril, telmisartan, oxenoprolol, felodipine, hydrochlorothiazide, amilord?

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
