How long do hypertension medications (diuretics vs ACE inhibitors vs Ca channel blockers vs etc.) take to achieve full effect?
Hours to weeks: The oral medications for treating high blood pressure start to work as soon as they are absorbed and the full effect of a single dose occurs within hours. Most blood pressure drugs sustain the reduction in BP for 24 hours so they can be taken once daily. When starting medication or changing dose there may be some further blood pressure reduction over the next several weeks. ...Read more

Is damage to bone marrow from a strong medication such as Levaquin- reversible? Can my body repair itself? Low platelets ever since I stopped it
Generally, how potent is clonidine when compared to other hypertensive medications, such as beta blockers and ACE inhibitors? Or, is it so individual?
Hypertension: Current 1st line medication for hypertension or high blood pressure is a thiazide diuretic (water pill) like hctz (hydrochlorothiazide) unless you have a compelling reason eg diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, etc for something else. Clonidine is far down list. It works but all BP meds work. Down side of Clonidine is rebound hypertension if you forget to take dose. Some find it sedating. Potency depends upon dose. ...Read more

Can certain medications or bruises create your d dimer to be elevated? Mine was 278 mg/nl. Chest/lung ct, echo, cbc, and platelets were normal.
D-dimer is a good test to rule out dvt. But when it is high it does not mean much and in reality we do ct, doppler... And we do not find any specific causes.
D-dimer level in 200 range is in lab error range.
The level depends on kidney function, cut and bruises, pregnancy, you name it.
If you had normal ct and doppler you should not be worried anymore. ...Read more

Cause?: First important to determine if the high platelet count is secondary to another medical problem (examples: anemia, infection, iron deficiency, autoimmune problem, bowel problem, heart problem, recent surgery or trauma, medication).
