Are lozol and zaroxolyn (metolazone) prescribed a lot?

Are lozol and zaroxolyn (metolazone) prescribed a lot?

Not unusually: Both are relatively frequently used medications for diuresis. However, they belong to the mild diuretics category unless combined with other diuretics. Zaroxylyn in particular has the claim of fame of being effective if added to Furosemide in patients with resistant diuresis with chf. By itself, it is used infrequently and other cheaper thiazides (same family) do the same effect e.g. Hctz (hydrochlorothiazide). ...Read more

Will using lozol help get rid of water?

Will using lozol help get rid of water?

Yes, but stop salt: No water pill will get the job done if the patient does not stop excess fluid and salt intake. Lozol and other water pills are like the plunger that you use for stopped up sink. It is very important not to pour much fluids in that sink or else the plunger may not be enough and flooding will take place. You got it! Our body is the sink and the kidneys are the drain that may be stopped up sometimes. ...Read more

Will using lozol help get rid of my water weight?

Minimally: Lozol is a mild diuretic but good anti hypertensive medication. Best way to diminish "water weight" is diminish the salt intake.
If you truly need to get rid of fluids, there are stronger diuretics that are used for heart failure or other reasons to keep fluids. ALL OF THEM require very careful doctor supervision.
Hard to answer without knowing more about the reason behind the question. ...Read more

Will using lozol help get rid of water retention?

Yes but,: Water pills only do so much. The patient does the most important job; salt and fluid restriction. Beware of salt in processed food and in bread (recent data). If you don't, at least do not mix them! I don't care how much water pills you take, you can sabotage their effect with your intake. If you control fluids and salt you may find yourself not in need for water pills. ...Read more

What are the interactions between indapamide with my atenolol?

Interactions: I don't know of any interactions between these medications other than that they are both high blood pressure medications and could lower your blood pressure excessively if this is too high of a dose for you.

Why would an endocrinologist not prescribe indapamide with my atenolol?

Why would an endocrinologist not prescribe indapamide with my atenolol?

Need more info: It's hard to answer the question without knowing what you're treating. If hyperthyroidism is the underlying problem, then beta blocker therapy (i.e., atenolol) is often sufficient, and diuretics (e.g., indapamide) are usually unnecessary. These types of meds are often prescribed together in congestive heart failure, but they don't have to be. Discuss your concerns with your doctor. ...Read more

I have hi-blood pressure I was just diagnosed with gout. I take atenolol 50mg, enalapril 2.5 mg, and indapamide 50mg. Indapamide raised my uric.?

I have hi-blood pressure I was just diagnosed with gout. I take atenolol 50mg, enalapril 2.5 mg, and indapamide 50mg. Indapamide raised my uric.?

Possibly: However, hypertension and gout are often associated so it may not be the indapamide. High uric acid is the result of overproduction (genetic), under excretion by the kidney, or lifestyle (alcohol, red meat, shrimp, etc.). ...Read more

Benefit of cimetropium bromide in controlling ibs-c. Does it interact with perindopril, indapamide or bisoprolol. Can it be taken with benzodiazepines?

Multiple medications: Cimetropium bromide is an anticholinergic medication and smooth muscle relaxant, used to decrease bowel spasms, pain and abdominal distention in ibs. It's not available in the us., but your note says you're from india. I didn't find interactions with your other BP meds.

What is best pain medication?

What is best pain medication?

There are none...: Even the strongest opiates only "take the edge off" for people in chronic pain. Meds are only one part of dealing with the pain. A useful tool, but pain is so necessary for survival that we are not "allowed" to monkey with it much. In acute pain, the transition from miserable to less miserable can be great. In chronic pain, it's just part of the plan. ...Read more
