Quinapril To Lisinopril Conversion
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
Drug choices: Both losartan (l) and valsartan (v) are drug of the angiotensin receptor blocker class. Perhaps you were switched due to your BP was not controlled on the dose of the l you were on. Both have few side effects and reduce BP and proteinuria quite well. L should be given twice a day and v can be given once daily for maximum their maximum effect. Check with your physician for her thoughts. ...Read more
I take losartan, coreg, (carvedilol) hydralozine, clonidine, amlodipine for HBP& thyroxine for under active thyroid. which drug could effect the affect cialis?
Symptoms?: Hi. Are you getting low blood pressure and/or dizziness when you take Cialis with your blood pressure drug regimen? I would think the hydrazine and the clonidine would be the most likely offenders based on mechanism of action. Generally losartan, Coreg, (carvedilol) and amlodipine are well tolerated with the Cialis family of drugs. But that's quite a BP combo; take my prediction with a grain of salt! Good luck ...Read more

Can avapro (arb), tekturna (aliskiren) hctz (dri-hctz) & lotrel (ccb-ace1) be used together for high blood pressure? I know together they can cause hyperkalemia.
Overkill: Ace/arb/ dri all work on the raas system. Novartis recently released the altitude study where they studied the effects of the combination of Diovan and tekturna (aliskiren) in diabetics with renal disease. Renal function worsened. Due to that I have stopped using those together. Now novartis is no longer promoting the tekturna (aliskiren) family of products and will be laying off 60% of their sales force in april. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Is it safe to take ibuprofen with metoprolol, lisinopril hctz, (hydrochlorothiazide) and Klor-Con 10?
Yes: In moderation, Ibuprofen is safe with those medications.

Maybe : Different people react differently to different drugs. While some people get good results with smallest dose of a drug, others would need more to have the same effect. As for lisinopril 10 mg and losartan 25 mg, both are starter doses, your doctor and yourself would be the best to judge efficacy, taking in consideration factors such as other drugs, other conditions, side effects, etc.. Best wishes ...Read more
