CAN YOU TAKE hydrochlorothiazide, AMLODIPINE BESYLATE AND BISOPROLOL FUMARATE TOGETHER?
Asked by Bula Caves 4 months ago.
Hydrochlorothiazide, Amlodipine and Bisoprolol are all blood pressure medications commonly used together. Each of these medications helps to lower blood pressure in different ways and they can be used together. It is important that you follow with your doctor regularly and have your blood pressure checked while on these medications. It is not uncommon for people with high blood pressure to require several blood pressure medications to adequately control their blood pressure. Answered by Estefana Shanley 4 months ago.
The bisoprolol and amlodipine are sometimes Rx'd together as a compound called Ziac. As for all 3 together, well...I'd fear that your blood pressure would get very low. Answered by Adam Clairday 4 months ago.

First answer is off the mark. Bisoprolol is beta blocker type of med. The hydrochlorothiazide is a diuretic (water pill) that also lowers the BP. What you saw on Walmart's list is a combination pill containing both meds. Good luck. Answered by Nikita Calabria 4 months ago.
They have different chemical structures. One might be effective for one patient, but might not be appropriate for another. Your doctor probably prescribed it on how high your blood pressure is, or your weight or other health factors. Some people can have adverse reactions to medications that would otherwise be fine for another person. But yes, discuss it with your doctor. He might be able to give you some insight into the exact reason why he prescribed Bisoprolol Fumarate. Answered by Arla Mcallen 4 months ago.
What is the pH of bisoprolol fumarate drug? and whether drug is acidic or basic?
I have searched so many literatures and pharmacopeas but didnt found any where? Please help me in this regard if any one knows
Asked by Cristobal Vazques 4 months ago.
I can't find anything either. My best guess is that it is somewhat acidic because the fumarate portion of the molecule is actually an included molecule of fumaric acid. Look at the links and you will see that is true. However, the larger molecule, bisoprolol, contains a secondary amine which is basic. The overall acidity of the molecule should be close to neutral but on the acid side. Answered by Iliana Vanschoor 4 months ago.

You really need to ask your pharmacist a question like this. He/she is an expert on medications. Most people forget that you can actually ask your doctor, when they hand you a script, if the new drug will interact with anything you are now taking. Stand up for your health.

Is it safe to take bisoprolol fumarate (beta blocker medecine) just before excercise?
I started this medicine 2 weeks ago for my hypertension condition.For the last 1.5 years, I usually took Irbesartan.My new Doctor said that I have a vegetative imbalance, so it's better to use beta blocker rather than Angiotensin Receptor Blockers.I always take the medicine in the morning, before doing exercise.

Answered by Maryann Montfort 4 months ago.
Is this a prescribed medicine for you? What schedule are you on? Once taken The effects peak in 2-4 hours, It has a half life of 10 - 12 hours meaning it stays in your system that long. Its main effect is lowering heart rate and blood pressure. Some people it causes fatigue and worsening of asthma symptoms and lowered blood sugar. During the normal course of exercise the heart rate physiologically goes up in all subjects. Medications react differently in all people. The best way to ascertain safety for an individual is to monitor blood pressure, heart rate and the persons response to exercise not just once but during the course of several exercise sessions. I wish you the best of health and wellness. Answered by Cynthia Aldecoa 4 months ago.
When I saw the words Bisoprolol Fumarate it stunned me, but only because I am on that myself as a heart patient these days, and on the lowest dose of all. For a split second I thought ' have I been asking medical questions lately' but of course I had not. Anyway having given you all that mindless information about myself, down to the facts of this drug, normally its to slow the heart down so it does not have to work so fast, it also helps a little with keeping the BP normal or lower at least. Being a new heart patient myself, naturally I read and re-read all the leaflets when I am put on a new drug, especially the side effects it may have. In truth I have not read anything about doing or not doing exorcises when on this drug I do have a friend who takes this beta blocker too, he takes a higher dose, and his heart is fine, for him the doctors put him on it to keep his bp down, so I guess taking it will be OK. But ... OK is not a good enough answer. All you got to do is pick up the phone and ask to talk to your doctor, who will be only to happy to tell you if its safe to do what you want to do. Anyway whatever is wrong with you, I wish you well and hope your back to full health really soon. For me I found bisoprolol fumarate has calmed my heart down a lot, but its a strong drug and as always when we're put on such things, we must always be careful, so do please ask your doctor whats the correct thing for you.

It's listed as category "C" for pregnancy. That usually means that there's not enough evidence, one way or the other. As one reference said... "There are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women. ZEBETA® (bisoprolol fumarate) should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus." I'd talk to your doctor and/or pharmacist about possible alternatives. Answered by Kris Stavish 4 months ago.

Life style modifications help bring down mild increases in blood pressure. Answered by Ryan Boeri 4 months ago.
Normal blood pressure is about 120/80. Normally rises with age to about 130/90 at age sixty. Do watch your sodium/salt intake?Are you overweight? Do you smoke? Lowering the blood pressure helps your heart pump easier. Your body isn't use to a lowered blood pressure. Could the other drug you take,be causing a problem? Lisinopril sometimes will cause a dry cough to develop. Used to be on lisinopri,l had the dry cough, now take cozaar and 23 other heart medications. I had two valves repaired (5 yrs.)and a pacemaker(fourth one)and with a blood pressure of 95/68. I'm in my mid fifties. Answered by Wayne Fesler 4 months ago.
You may be surprised to learn that the UK medical profession has now suggested that a BP reading of 140/90 is acceptable in most people. 120/65 is not low, in fact it is very good. Your various operations may make you a special case...but IF the medication you're on is making you feel unwell you might wish to see another GP in your practice for another view point..BP medications are too numerous to mention and I'm sure the side effects of sleepless nights can be over come. I suggest you write down and take with you to the Doctors-ALL the effects that are unpleasant to you, when you feel them. Sleepless nights cannot continue-and one of the side effects of some BP meds is sleepless nights. All the best. Answered by Ariana Sonka 4 months ago.
3 years ago, I was diagnosed - hypertension with a reading of 160/100. I used to feel dizzy a lot, my legs had awful cramps, and levels were very low in my potassium, causing my fingers and toes to always cramp together. One day I started to feel really faint while I was driving with my daughter in the back seat and I passed out, hitting 3 cars and ending up in a ditch. That moment,I knew I had to do something because my meds weren't working. I heard about this diet from a friend and thought I'd give it a shot. The results have been remarkable. In just 21 days, I honestly can't remember feeling this good, my blood pressure went from 175/110 to 125/70. Answered by Barabara Turton 4 months ago.
I'm sorry to hear that you haven't been feeling very well on your hypertension medications. Commonly, I see patients with beta blockers having the same feelings that they are slowed down. If you are running 120/65 that is great, but I would suggest your top priority be to control the blood pressure and worry about side effects later - with a valve replacement, your age, and cardiac issues - having the high blood pressure can kill you very quickly. I would only try to go off the medications with your doctor's supervision. As the others have suggested, exercise itself will bring down your blood pressure - I would suggest 30 min of walking or more strenuous cardiovascular exercise 5-6 days a week if you can. Additionally, losing weight if you are overweight will help to bring down your pressure. In terms of diet, reducing sodium (salt) will help by reducing the amount of volume in your vasculature. Also try to increase your intake of foods high in potassium such as potatoes or bananas. Current recommendations we were taught in school are to start out with a potassium-sparing diuretic such as HCTZ for high blood pressure, then add in an ACE inhibitor (you are already on lisinopril- it has the added benefit of protecting your kidneys if you are diabetic by any chance) and a beta blocker if necessary (your bisoprolol). You might ask about adding in the HCTZ (very cheap) so that you could reduce your dosages of the others and possibly reduce your side effects. It might not be possible if your doctor thinks you need the beta blocker to reduce your heart's contractility (how hard it is pumping) for your artifical valve, but I think that would be worth asking about. As well, think about supplementation with potassium or magnesium - both of these can reduce blood pressure. Omega-3 fish oil might also be of help. Finally, stress management techniques, taking time to yourself for a bath or other relaxation can be helpful. Finally, I am just a medical student, so do not take this as professional medical advice - ask your doctor, but hopefully this might point you in the right direction.

There are more natural ways to lower your blood pressure. I read a book by Dr. Ray Strand entitled, "What Your Doctor Doesn't Know About Nutritional Medicine May Be Killing You." In it, he said that many doctors are like a man trying to build a house with a hammer. Everything he sees becomes a nail and he uses the hammer exclusively to build the house. Doctors only know about drugs. It is all they know. Drugs should be a "stop-gap" measure that is used until they can get your blood pressure down to a normal range. Diet, exercise and other natural means should be used from there if possible. Click on the links below in order to learn about simple and easy ways to control High Blood Pressure in a natural way.

I would keep in close communication with your doctor. The more you let him/her know how badly the meds are making you feel, the more they will listen. I started taking Cardizem CD about a year ago, and I did not want to go on meds. I told the dr. that if it made me feel funny in any way, I would get off it. The Cardizem has not effected me at all, except that my bp has gone down. As others have suggested, watch the salt, get some exercise and drink plenty of water. Answered by Jani Acevedo 4 months ago.
There are so many b/p medications out there. I've been on quite a few, and the worst was Inderal. I had leg muscle weakness and lethargy like you wouldn't believe. I told my doctor how I was feeling and he changed the medication. Through trial and error I am now on a wonderful regimen of Tekturna and Caduet. I feel so much better, my blood pressure is the best it has ever been in years, and I don't get those horrible migraine headaches anymore. Talk to your doctor. Exercise will do no good if you're too weak and miserable to have the energy to do it. Best of luck to you. Answered by Sammie Lich 4 months ago.
