Answered by Roselyn Beckem 2 years ago.

Never ignore your doc's advice. If their reasoning seems unreasonable or unclear, talk to them before doing something on your own. It could mean life or death. Atacand (ditto same opening statement with Norvasc): "Side effects cannot be anticipated. If any develop or change in intensity, inform your doctor as soon as possible. Only your doctor can determine if it is safe for you to continue taking Atacand." Common Side Effects: back pain, dizziness, respiratory tract infection. Less Common Side Effects: abdominal pain, broncitis, chest pain, cough, diarrhea, fatigue, headache, joint pain, nausea, runny nose, sinus inflammation, sore throat, swelling,vomiting. Rare Side Efects: anxiety, blood in urine, depression, difficulty breathing, drowsiness, fever, gastrointestinaldisorders, increased bllod sugar,indigestion, muscle aches, nosebleed, rapid heartbeat, rash, sweating, tingling, tiredness, weakness. Special Warning: Atacand can cause a severe drop in blood pressure, especially when you first start taking the drug. The problem is more likely to occur if your body's supply of water has been depleted by diurectics (water pills). Symptoms include light-headedness, dizziness, and faintness. Call your doctor if they occur. You may need to have your dose adjusted. If you have kidney disease or congestive heart failure, Atacand must be used with caution. Norvasc Common Side Effects- dizziness, fatigue, flushing, fluid retention and swelling, headache, palpitations, (fluttery or throbbing heartbeat). Less Common Side Effects: abdominal pain, nausea & sleepiness. Rare Side Effects: abnormal dreams, agitation. allergic reactions, altered sense of smell or taste, anxiety, back pain, chest pain, cold & clammy skin, conjunctivitis (pink eye), constipation, coughing, depression, diarrhea, difficult or labored breathing, difficult or painful urination, difficulty swallowing, dizziness or light-headedness when standing, double vision, dry mouth, dry skin, excessive urination, eye pain, fainting, frequent urination, gas, general feeling of illness, hair loss, heart failure. hives, hot flashes, inability to sleep, increased appetite, increased sweating, indigestion, inflammed blood vessels, inflamed pancreas, irregular heartbeat, irregular pulse, itching, joint pain or problems, lack of coordination, lack of sensation, loose stools, loss of appetite, loss of memory, loss of sense of idenity, low blood pressure, migraine, muscle cramps or pain, muscle weakness, nasal inflammation, nervousness, nosebleed, pain, purple or red spots on the skin, rapid heartbeat, rash, ringing in the ears, sexual problems, skin sdiscoloration, skin inflammation, slow heartbeat, stomach inflammation, thirst, tingling or "pins and needles," tremor, twitching, urinating at night, urinating problems, vertigo, vision problems, vomiting, weakness, weight gain. Answered by Vanna Hung 2 years ago.

You could, but the dosages of these meds have to be individualized. It will depend on your specific heart condition and body size. The dose for a 220 lb man would not be the same as for a 110 woman. Conditions being roughly equal. If the micardis 40 mg is not keeping your blood pressure close to normal it is time you discussed this with your doctor. When you self medicate and guess at how much to take you are playing with fire. Just how the two meds would react on your body is an unknown. Although your intent is to lower your blood pressure the effect of the two meds combined is unpredictable. Play it safe and talk to your doctor first. Answered by Tyesha Bolfa 2 years ago.


Atacand side effects?

Why is propanolol less expansive than atacand?
proponol is for headaches anxiety and high blood pressure while atacand is only for high blood pressure so why does atacand cost more i dont get it? Asked by Melaine Kerley 2 years ago.

The synthesis route for atacand is complex. There are 6 steps and at each step, you need to purify the product to start the next step. Propanolol requires just 2 step. Also, I think the reagents used for propanolol cost less. Answered by Tracee Stopyra 2 years ago.

i took my atacand before going to the clinic today and when she took my blood pressure she said it was still a little high and this has never happened before usaly when i take it my blood pressure goes back to normal should i be concerned?i take 8mg Asked by Jeraldine Mongue 2 years ago.

Why are you taking medication when your problem stems from chronic dehydration? That's like putting a piece of electrical tape over the oil light in your car to fix an oil problem - the problem is still there, even though you no longer see it. Here's what you do - click the link below. There, you'll find a free guide for correcting dehydration. Follow it and stay away from other beverages like soft drinks, coffee, energy drinks, etc. Within a couple of days, you'll see your blood pressure dropping to normal. Stay on the medication though, until your doctor takes you off of it. It's not up to me or you to stop taking it, although you don't need it. Changing or stopping medication must be done under a doctor's supervision. Answered by Cristal Edwardson 2 years ago.


Difference between Atacand and Atacand HCT?
HCT has the hydrochlorothiazine and the regular Atacand doesn't, any differences or precautions I should be aware of? Asked by Eryn Freire 2 years ago.

Not particularly. You shouldn't "feel" any difference. Your doc will want to keep an eye on your bloodwork, as any water pill Iike HCTZ can cause electrolyte changes. If you do notice unusual things after starting it, check with your pharmacist and/or doc to see if they are related. Answered by Noreen Consla 2 years ago.

HCTZ has been around since the 70s and is still considered one of the safest and most effective meds for high BP. Aside from having potassium and magnesium checked a few eeks after starting it and then once a year, you should be fine with it. Answered by Carolina Brindle 2 years ago.

Why is propanolol less expansive than atacand?
proponol is for headaches anxiety and high blood pressure while atacand is only for high blood pressure so why does atacand cost more i dont get it? Asked by Thea Kulback 2 years ago.

The synthesis route for atacand is complex. There are 6 steps and at each step, you need to purify the product to start the next step. Propanolol requires just 2 step. Also, I think the reagents used for propanolol cost less. Answered by Ria Bayer 2 years ago.

Why are you taking medication when your problem stems from chronic dehydration? That's like putting a piece of electrical tape over the oil light in your car to fix an oil problem - the problem is still there, even though you no longer see it. Here's what you do - click the link below. There, you'll find a free guide for correcting dehydration. Follow it and stay away from other beverages like soft drinks, coffee, energy drinks, etc. Within a couple of days, you'll see your blood pressure dropping to normal. Stay on the medication though, until your doctor takes you off of it. It's not up to me or you to stop taking it, although you don't need it. Changing or stopping medication must be done under a doctor's supervision. Answered by Nathalie Marrison 2 years ago.


Difference between Atacand and Atacand HCT?
HCT has the hydrochlorothiazine and the regular Atacand doesn't, any differences or precautions I should be aware of? Asked by Elmira Dellapina 2 years ago.

Not particularly. You shouldn't "feel" any difference. Your doc will want to keep an eye on your bloodwork, as any water pill Iike HCTZ can cause electrolyte changes. If you do notice unusual things after starting it, check with your pharmacist and/or doc to see if they are related. Answered by Tora Mayoka 2 years ago.

HCTZ has been around since the 70s and is still considered one of the safest and most effective meds for high BP. Aside from having potassium and magnesium checked a few eeks after starting it and then once a year, you should be fine with it. Answered by Verline Gunselman 2 years ago.

yea but im asking what is better? Asked by Danyell Verunza 2 years ago.

If it is related to stress, you must get rid of the stress. If you don't treat the cause of the problem, the problem will always be there! Medication will only help a little. Answered by Johnson Byrom 2 years ago.
