I take Procardia XL and a form of Cardizem SR for hypertension and a part of the drug cocktail I take twice daily to prevent seizures I occasionally have as a result of a stroke. I also take Trileptal-600 and Topamax-200 the most effective thing I've found to prevent the periodic seizures along with making sure I get 8 hours sleep every day, a habit I had to develop after running a Dodge dealership and staying there bell to bell. I had to sell out and retire. The good news is I had my first seizure in 4 years last week, the bad news is I had a seizure last week. doc said I had been pushing it trying to stay involved with the present management of the dealership til the move to a new facility and I have to sell or rent the property.

Does not lower my blood pressure as good as the brand. Yet, I am told they are the same? Asked by Ileen Batel 1 year ago.

There are certain small differences between name brands and generics. The active ingredient(s) are essentially the same, although they are allowed to be a certain percentage of chemical variation by the FDA (5% maybe?). This alone can sometimes cause a different level of activity in a person. Changes in the inactive ingredients such as dyes, sugars, or coatings can all change the way the medicine is absorbed and processed by the body. Answered by Chester Dotolo 1 year ago.

I have one EP saying I should get the ablation procedure done so that a) I don't have to be on medication permanently and b) since I was complaining of frequent palpitations. However, the calan has helped my palpitations alot. I have another EP saying the procedure would be a "big gun for a small fly" i.e. since they are benign arrythmias, I really don't need it done. I need one more opinion to break the fence and help me make a decision. Any guidance is much appreciated. Thank You! Answered by Vashti Snoozy 1 year ago.

PVC's ,- of themselves, are not the problem. They are symptoms caused by the problem, which , it sounds from what you describe about your EP's, is of unknown origin. That said, ablation might well -or might NOT- alleviate the symptoms. It seems premature at this stage to undergo it, simply because whether it does or not, the problem will still be there. In due course, -it will manifest itself in another form or the PVC's may even return. It IS a sledgehammer, to crack a nut, and on balance it appears to be prudent to await further, more serious outcomes before deciding. Bide a while. The ablation course won't disappear.

However, the calan has helped my palpitations alot. I have another EP saying the procedure would be a "big gun for a small fly" i.e. since they are benign arrythmias, I really don't need it done. I need one more opinion to break the fence and help me make a decision. Any guidance is much appreciated. Thank You! Answered by Tricia Glock 1 year ago.

PVC's ,- of themselves, are not the problem. They are symptoms caused by the problem, which , it sounds from what you describe about your EP's, is of unknown origin. That said, ablation might well -or might NOT- alleviate the symptoms. It seems premature at this stage to undergo it, simply because whether it does or not, the problem will still be there. In due course, -it will manifest itself in another form or the PVC's may even return. It IS a sledgehammer, to crack a nut, and on balance it appears to be prudent to await further, more serious outcomes before deciding. Bide a while. The ablation course won't disappear. Your palpitations may! Answered by Lashunda Borysewicz 1 year ago.
