Can you take lumaday supplements when your taking lexipro?

Can you take lumaday supplements when your taking lexipro?

Lumiday: Lumiday contains multiple vitamins and herbal ingredients. The one that could cause the most problems with your Lexapro (escitalopram) is st. John's wort. Like lexapro, (escitalopram) st. John's wort inhibits the reuptake of serotonin, which could cause your brain to be overexposed to serotonin. I would not recommend taking lumiday with Lexapro (escitalopram) or any other ssri either. Please discuss your needs with your own physician. ...Read more

Been taking Diovan 80mg daily for 8yrs for my BP. Cardiologist told me not to take the meds unless my BP is above 140/90. Should I stop my meds?

Been taking Diovan 80mg daily for 8yrs for my BP. Cardiologist told me not to take the meds unless my BP is above 140/90. Should I stop my meds?

Not entirely correct: Ideal BP for all is 120/80. Having said that, as u r young, and if no other co-morbidities, first line treatment for excess BP is lifestyle changes. In other words, after a concerted effort to limit your salt intake to <2000 mg/day, increasing your exercise (even waking 20-25 mins briskly) and effectuating even loss of 5 pounds of weight, BP will improve. Failing that and still excess BP, then med ...Read more

Diovan 160mg daily,  for 10 days and b/p  ranges from 157/88 - 147/78 , is this controlled?  I was told I may need to take losartan 50mg at night.

Hypertension: No.
Systolic pressure is above goal which is 130 or less.
This is a good dose of diovan which is in the same family as losartan so adding that would not make any sense.
Next best step is to add a low dose diuretic possibly combined with diovan on the same pill. ...Read more

In order to avoid being "addicted" to one medication, can I take Diovan (valsartan) this month then Benicar next month, and so on ? Thank you.

Benicar & Diovan (valsartan) are: Both blood pressure medicines (in the arb family) & have absoutely no addictive potential. Take them as directed by your doc. I doubt that you should be taking both at the same time; so check with doc as to which one u should be taking. If your BP needs to be lowered further, let doc make the choice of medication(s). ...Read more

When is the best moment to take Benicar or Diovan (valsartan) : morning (right after waking up), or after lunch, or night (right before going to bed) ? Thank you.

I have hbp and im currently taking diovan (valsartan). My ankles and feet are very swollen and i don't understand why because i take my meds everyday. Any advice?

Causes of swelling : Your feet and ankles could be swollen not because your blood pressure is high but for another reason. None of the medications you are taking contain a water pill. Sometimes you could have swelling from medication, increased salt in your diet or because of structural heart problems. I would go back to your doctor and talk about the swelling so that they can properly diagnose it. Also stop salt. ...Read more
