It's actually for awareness. I'm 15, and, no, i've by no means published nude/revealing graphics of myself on the web. But as an adolescent lady, i will form of recognize why different youngster ladies do it. They are in determined want for awareness. They desire anyone to inform them "you're sizzling" "you've got an attractive ___" or "exceptional frame. exceptional face" and so forth. They do not a lot care how trashy it's-- they simply desire awareness, and desire anyone to inform them that they appear well-- even supposing this can be a sleazy comment. Any "praise" (nonetheless soiled, and trashy they could also be) is a spice up to them. They consider bigger approximately themselves afterwards. (however in the end, they would possibly not. They'll finally detect that posting nude images isn't the correct approach to cross, and they are going to consider terrible approximately it)... they simply do not believe approximately the long run influences as they put up it. It's only a method of fishing for "compliments" (if you'll even name it "compliments"). Answered by Noel Tower 4 months ago.

While the consumer info warns of using Diltiazem/Cartia in A-Fib, it's very commonly used. In the hospital, it's one of the first drugs used to control the rate of A-Fib. It's used for BP control as well as heart rate control for out patients. Answered by Germaine Shoaff 4 months ago.

Actually what you wrote sounds pretty ominous. But if you read the patient info for almost any prescribed med you'll see it's just as bad. They list everything that people in the initial test group complained about even though they were not sure if the med caused it or something else. They list possible side effects even if only 1% of the study group reported this symptom. The sunburn thing, if you get it could be long term but it's not like you can't be in the sun...just be sensible about it. The dizziness and drowsiness would probably get much better with a little time. If it wouldn't you could tell your doctor you want a different med to try. There are several similar meds available. The tired rundown feeling usually resolves in a few weeks. Remember these are POTENTIAL side effects. You won't get all of them, maybe you won't get any. Always remember it is OK to let the doctor know if the med is not agreeing with you. Answered by Wanda Turick 4 months ago.
I started taking blood pressure medications 2 & a half years ago after undergoing open-heart surgery (5 bypasses) They discovered during the surgery that the lower part of my left ventrical was badly scarred from a previous heart attack. As a result of the surgery and the scarring, which they could do nothing about, I now am in the odd position of having a low diastolic blood pressure reading along with a rather high systolic reading. Average 52 over 139. My pulse is around 60. The cardiologist says he can't adjust the doses of medication. I take a beta blocker and a dialator plus a low dose aspiren. What I'm trying to point out is there's different meds and different doses for different people's condition. Pin your doctor down and make him take the time to explain your questions. Your time is as valuable to you as his is to him. Answered by Charline Sherwood 4 months ago.

My blood pressure runs about 140 - 165/85-95, due to gaining about 30 pounds over the last 7 months and being almost 100% sedentary.I've also had a fast pulse and some palps. I was on Metoprolol 25mg 2 x a day for a month, but I've been getting hot flashes/dizzyness/shortness of breath, so my cardiologist switched me to Cartia XT 120MG once a day. I'm supposed to start it tomorrow but I'm reading the side effects and it appears this could make me dizzy as well. What's the point of trying all these meds if they're just going to make me dizzy? can I just refuse these meds and be okay? I know my BP will go down once my weight comes off. I'm just worried about new side effects. I've had a bad time on various meds this year. It feels like the side effects are never worth it, but I don't wanna get a stroke or something. Does anyone see where I'm coming from? Answered by Frederick Merkel 4 months ago.
Ignore the water bozo. As a result of his lack of medical training/knowledge, he thinks that water cures everything. Not so. ANY medicine can have side effects. Period. That's no reason to not try a new one. While weight loss is a great goal, it never happens as fast as we'd like. Take the meds to help you while you are loosing weight. When you get to a goal weight, then talk to your doc about stopping them. Answered by Harold Waag 4 months ago.

You need someone to show you where to go. The doctor who prescribed those medications needs to educate himself on the role of water in the body. Chronic dehydration is the cause of high blood pressure, and the prescription to correct it should be an increase in water and a little salt. Your weight has little to do with the blood pressure itself. Medication only addresses the symptoms - it keeps the blood pressure artificially lowered to a specific predetermined level. But it doesn't do anything about the cause and this is why you're going to be on the medication for the rest of your life. But if you treat the underlying cause, you can lower your blood pressure naturally and eventually give up the medication. The exact progression of high blood pressure involves unbalanced water levels in the cells and a reverse osmosis process that borrows water from the blood to inject into the cells. You can read all about it by obtaining a copy of the book "Your Body's Many Cries For Water" by F. Batmanghelidj, MD. Click on the link below and follow the instructions you'll find on using water and salt to correct your dehydration, which in turn will correct your blood pressure.

Does Cartia XT 120mg cause throat to close up? I keep getting this feeling at night right after I take it. ?
I have been taking this medicine for just about a month now. I'm not sure if this feeling is a side effect. I haven't been able to sleep the last few nights. It happens immediately after I take the medicine which is right before bed. Any suggestions? Maybe its just the weather or allergies.

Talk to your doctor. Let them know of your symptoms. Some people are more sensitive to certain medications and their side effects. In some cases you may in fact be allergic to the medication.

I assume a doctor gave you your blood pressure meds. Why don't you ask them? Answered by Nidia Digsby 4 months ago.
DRUG INTERACTIONS: See also How To Use section for drug-food interactions. This drug should not be used with the following medications because very serious (possibly fatal) interactions may occur: nitrates (e.g., nitroglycerin, isosorbide), nitroprusside (or any "nitric oxide donor" drugs), recreational drugs called "poppers" containing amyl or butyl nitrite. If you are currently using any of these medications, tell your doctor or pharmacist before starting sildenafil. Before using this medication, tell your doctor or pharmacist of all prescription and nonprescription products you may use, especially of: other medications for impotence, azole antifungals (e.g., itraconazole, ketoconazole), cimetidine, erythromycin, mibefradil, rifamycins (e.g., rifampin), high blood pressure medicines, delavirdine. If you are taking an HIV protease inhibitor (e.g., ritonavir, saquinavir), do not take more than a 25mg dose of sildenafil in a 48 hour period. If you are taking more than a 25mg dose of sildenafil and are also taking an alpha-blocker medication (e.g., doxazosin, prazosin, terazosin) for various conditions (e.g., enlarged prostate), separate the time between taking these medications by more than 4 hours. Do not start or stop any medicine without doctor or pharmacist approval. Answered by Vito Hoppa 4 months ago.
Yes, it is dangerous and not advised. Definitely consult with your doctor. Viagra will cause a sudden drop in your blood pressure and might easily cause you to pass out. The ads for Viagra have discussed this situation over and over. Pay attention, there's probably a real good reason they warn about the combination. Answered by Arica Reno 4 months ago.

I think you may mean Cartia XT. If that's the case, then it is a Calcium Channel Blocker prescribed mostly for angina, prevention of heart attack, hypertension, and Raynaud's disease. Some of the most common side effects that I have heard of are lightheadedness, headache, and weakness. This drug is also known as Cardizem, Dilacor, DiH-CD, Diltia, Taztia, Tiamate, & Tiazac. If you would like some more information on Cartia feel free to e-mail me. I hope that information helps! Answered by Philip Sturman 4 months ago.
