Im on medications like ginette 35, finasteride and aldactone (spironolactone).Will i be able to take a 24 hour free cortisol test?Will my medications affect the result
Test will work: Hi. Your BCP, finasteride, and spironolactone will not interfere with your 24-hour urinary cortisol test. PCOS is a "diagnosis of exclusion", meaning things like Cushing's may need to be excluded for PCOS to be a valid diagnosis. Your doctor has considered that Cushing's is possible, so has ordered the 24-hour UFC to screen for Cushing's. Good luck! ...Read more

HTN: Zestoretic (lisinopril and hydrocholorthiazide) contains a combination of hydrochlorothiazide and lisinopril.

Lisinopril belongs to a group of drugs called ace inhibitors. Ace stands for angiotensin converting enzyme. Lisinopril lowers blood pressure and also relieves symptoms of fluid re. ...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
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
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
Not in women: Spironolactone (aldactone) is an antiandrogen, so it does have an effect to decrease testoterone, and there is an indirect estrogenic effect - which can cause breast enlargement (gynecomastia) and tenderness in men.
