I am just wondering if I should be taking fosinopril for a BP of 122/84?

Maybe: It depends on if your blodo pressure was greater than 140/90 before you started the fosinopril.

If your doctor prescribed it, I would not discontinue it until consulting with them. The reason your BP is 122/84 and controlled maybe because of the fosinopril. ...Read more

I take metoprolol, fosinopril, and diltiazem. What is my doctor thinking?

Hypertension: It would be best if you ask him in a straightforward and unchallenging fashion. Those are excellent medications for the treatment of hypertension. The combination implies you have important high blood pressure. 2 of them could be combined into generic Lotrel (amlodipine and benazepril) & so you could be on 2 instead of 3 medicines. Further history (and physical and lab) would tell us a lot more about you. Hrs www. Thepmc. Org. ...Read more

Pt. F/68 with bleeding gum after dental cleaning. It's been bleeding for 17hours. She's on plavix, monopril (fosinopril) anddigoxin.

Pt. F/68 with bleeding gum after dental cleaning. It's been bleeding for 17hours. She's on plavix, monopril (fosinopril) anddigoxin.

Bleeding gums: Plavix (clopidogrel) will increase the chance of bleeding following surgical procedures and deep cleanings. Since we cannot know her full medical and dental history as well as periodontal condition (bone loss, pocketing, etc) we can't really comment beyond that. She should notify the dentist who actually treated her for advice. ...Read more

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

DR prescribed Monopril 5mg, HCTZ (hydrochlorothiazide) 12.5mg & KLOR-CON 4mg for mild, longtime HTN. My potassium levels are normal. Is KLOR-CON necessary or risky?

Probably not.: Any excess potassium would be eliminated in your urine, as long as your kidney function is normal. HCTZ (hydrochlorothiazide) is a diuretic, and your doctor wanted to make sure that you would not develop low K, which is dangerous. ...Read more

Why do some children have allergies?

Why do some children have allergies?

Exposure + Genes: One needs both a genetic component and "exposure" to a said allergen to develop an allergy. There is a growing support over the past 20 years, that growing up in an environment which is "too clean" can also lead to development of allergies down the road. Either way, allergies are on the rise. ...Read more

I have an allergy to nuts and I was wondering if my children would also be allergic?

I have an allergy to nuts and I was wondering if my children would also be allergic?

Nut allergy: Maybe. Your children may have inherited genes from you that make them more likely to develop an allergy, but they do not inherit a specific allergy to a food e.g. Nuts. The children have to be exposed to food proteins in the diet, before an allergy can develop. Once one develops an allergy then they are always allergic and need proper medical attention to prevent severe problems. ...Read more

Can a parents allergies be passed on to their children?

Can a parents allergies be passed on to their children?

Not exactly: The ability to react to certain proteins in an allergic way is passed on from parents to their children, but a specific allergy is not. So if a mom is allergic to pollen and the dad is allergic to fire ants, their child may develop allergies but it may be to a food instead. If 1 parent has allergies, the child is 50% likely to develop allergies, but it's a 75% chance if both parents are allergic. ...Read more
