Platelet Inhibitors Side Effects
Is it okay to have platelets-rich plasma (prp) injection for my knee joint problem. Any side effects?
Age 80: I am not sure I understand your question but at your age (if I read it correctly) you may be having side effects from your own testosterone - such as an enlarged prostate. In that case you must see a Urologist. I cannot think of any reason to consider an estrogen inhibitor for you. ...Read more
Hbp #: if there were to be unwanted side effects for a prescribed ACE inhibitor, would it be more prevalent with an extended release form, or not?
No difference: Side effects form the medication are no different whether given as short- or long-acting. You may feel the effect of the medication more with short-acting forms (such as lightheaded with BP meds as it brings the pressure down). The most common side effect from ace is cough which occurs with either form. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Resubmitted:can a non-scored, non-coated, extended release ACE inhibitor hbp medicine be divided in half (for am/pm)to decrease unwanted side effects?
Question for your Dr: Ace inhibitors are generally a once daily medication, but can be taken at lower doses more frequently. Nocturnal dosing may help avert undesired side effects. Before breaking up a pill in half and taking it twice a day in hopes of decreasing side effects, you should discuss with your dr. A lower dose or a different class of medications may better serve you depending on what your side effects are. ...Read more
