Could prescription medicine negate the affects of the Plan-B pill?
The prescription medicine that I'm taking is labetalol, chlorothiazide, and lisinopril for my high-blood pressure. I want to make sure that these medicines could make the Plan-B pill not work if I took it. I tried looking up information but I was unable to find anything. Anyone know anything?
Asked by Annalisa Samec 6 months ago.
There are no interactions that I know of between Plan B (levonorgestrel) and the medications you are taking. Answered by Aurelia Llerena 6 months ago.

Your doctor may prescribe the following medications: * ACE inhibitors such as captopril, enalapril, lisinopril, and ramipril to open up blood vessels and decrease the work load of the heart * Diuretics including hydrochlorothiazide, chlorthalidone, chlorothiazide, furosemide, torsemide, bumetanide, and spironolactone to help rid your body of fluid and salt (sodium) * Digitalis glycosides to help the heart muscle to contract properly and help treat some heart rhythm disturbances * Angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) such as losartan and candesartan for those who have side effects with ACE inhibitors * Beta-blockers such as carvedilol and metoprolol, which may be helpful for some patients The following devices may be recommended for certain patients with heart failure: * A pacemaker to help treat slow heart rates or other heart signaling problems * A biventricular pacemaker to help the both sides of your heart contract at the same time; it is also called cardiac resynchronization therapy. * An implantable cardioverter-defibrillator that recognizes life-threatening, abnormal heart rhythms and sends an electrical pulse to stop them.

What is best time to take blood pressure medicine?
Asked by Latrisha Vent 6 months ago.
Depends on the medication. Follow your doctor's instructions, or the instructions that came with the prescription. If your blood pressure medication is a diuretic like chlorothiazide, you may want to take it in the morning rather than in the evening so that you do not have to get up to void so often at night. Conversely, beta blockers cause drowsiness in some individuals, so it is best to take them in the evening. I think that ACE inhibitors are best taken in the morning with a lot of water, but check that out with other references. In any case, this is a question that you need to discuss with your doctor. Answered by Tracey Donat 6 months ago.
Depends on your medication and when you are being monitored. Generally, take them at night as they each have the potential to give you hypotension. So, that's when you feel dizzy. To overcome this, just gradually stand up from a sitting or a lying position, or sit or lie back down. You should really have listed which blood pressure medicines you are talking about but all of them generally cause orthostatic, or first dose hypotension. Answered by Sherice Goeden 6 months ago.

Inner health is a very important subject because 95% of life threatening diseases starts inside our bodies where we can’t see what is happening. By ignoring symptoms we often allow the problem to increase until treatment becomes difficult or, in the worst cases, impossible. It is also true that one hour of prevention is far better than one year of treatment. In this article we will look at the main source of “body fuel” – the food that we eat and, more importantly, how we eat it. But before going into that subject there are other things we should not be doing: No smoking, No drinking alcohol to excess, No taking of unprescribed drugs. What we eat is the starting point. There is no point in eating foods that are saturated in fat as your basic diet and complaining that you are overweight and/or feel unwell. Of course you do because this is self-inflicted by inadequate diet. A good diet requires daily intake of the five major food groups that we have covered extensively in previous articles. Small meals taken regularly (even six meals each day) are better for you than long periods without food followed by a heavy meal. Answered by Margarite Deatherage 6 months ago.
I have taken this type of medication and had to ask the same thing. As I was told, an enlarged heart is when the muscle around the heart has to pump harder it, of course, gets bigger. Reason being, when a muscle works harder, it gets bigger. The muscle is filled with fluid so when it gets bigger, the fluid does too. This causes the muscle to also get thicker. Because of this, as we get older, the muscle can "wear itself out" and then it would not be able to pump the blood in and out of your heart which could in turn not let the valves function properly. So medication is needed. The first word (starting with an "O") acts kind of like a muscle relaxer so that muscle around your heart does not wear itself out. The other word (starts with an "H" - most commonly called HCTZ) is like a water pill. It makes you pee so the excess fluid, you are retaining, can come out. The excess fluid can lead to congestive heart failure. Stay away from caffeine drinks and drink plenty of water each day. Exercise or walk daily. If your feet, ankles or legs are swelling making it hurt to bend or making it hard to put shoes on, buy socks made for people with diabetes that will not bind. Also, monitor your blood pressure. You could develop blood clots. If the medication does not seem to help your swelling or if your blood pressure does not go down, call and schedule another appointment with your doctor. I have taken other medications that actually made me swell more. I always take my blood pressure around the same time each day and mark it down. I also make a note if something was bothering me that day so if it is up, the doctor can maybe determine if it is because of the meds or if your condition is worse. Good luck and do what the doctor tells you to. Answered by Colton Kirchoff 6 months ago.

What are the benefits of a diuretic?
coffee, jamaica, etc...
Asked by Frank Gallante 6 months ago.
Diuretics, which cause reduction of water and sodium, have been the mainstays of anti-hypertensive therapy.Diuretics are inexpensive and are the drug of choice for most people with hypertension. Diuretics significantly reduce the risk for stroke; they may in fact be the most important anti-hypertensive agent for preventing this brain attack. They also appear to protect against stroke in people without hypertension. They are associated with lower risk for heart attack (although this is not as significant as their protection against stroke). They may protect against blood clots. Diuretics may help reduce the risk for dementia and the rate of fractures in elderly people who have taken them for a long time. Three primary types of diuretics exist: Thiazides. Thiazides often serve as the basis for high blood pressure treatment, either taken alone for mild to moderate hypertension or used in combination with other types of drugs. There are many thiazides and thiazide-related drugs; some common ones are chlorothiazide (Diuril), chlorthalidone (Hygroton), indapamide (Lozol), and hydrochlorothiazide (Esidrix, HydroDiuril). Loop diuretics. Loop diuretics block sodium transport in parts of the kidney; they act faster than thiazides and have a great diuretic effect. It is important therefore to control the medication and avoid dehydration and potassium loss. Loop diuretics include bumetanide (Bumex), furosemide (Lasix), and ethacrynic acid (Edecrin). Potassium sparing agents. Some potassium-sparing diuretics include amiloride (Midamor), spironolactone (Aldactone), and triamterene (Dyrenium).

Tanning on meds that say you cant?
What will happen if you go tanning when your taking medication that says you're not supposed to be in the sun?
Asked by Sophia Bobeck 6 months ago.
There are lots of medicines that are photo sensitizers...meaning it make your skin sensitive to sun or heat...causing manifestations of sun allergy.... redness,itchiness and spread out mostly to exposed skin. There are long list of medicines that can do this from diuretics ( chlorothiazides) anti diabetic (glucotrol), anti cholesterol (Lipitor, zitia), and many many more. I remember there is difference between sun allergy and sun poisoning (although people often interchange them). I think deaths had been reported in sun poisoning but not in sun allergy.
