Our gynanaecologist prescribed letaval tablets.can anybody suggest what for they are used?
these tablets were prescribed for sec. infertility Asked by Jerilyn Diker 1 year ago.

I think that must be a misspelling- there is no letaval in the PDR, and a Yahoo search yielded nothing. There is a Levatol, a brand name form of Penbutolol, which is used to treat high blood pressure, and should never be used if one is pregnant, or trying to become pregnant.

Beta blockers slow me down too much. What else can I take?
Have been taking twice a day two bisoprolol pills to treat high blood pressure. I have ran out and could not get to the doctor in time to refill the prescription. My blood pressure is of course higher than normal but I no longer feel so weak and tired like I did on the beta blocker. Before I was prescribed... Asked by Charleen Kozee 1 year ago.

Have been taking twice a day two bisoprolol pills to treat high blood pressure. I have ran out and could not get to the doctor in time to refill the prescription. My blood pressure is of course higher than normal but I no longer feel so weak and tired like I did on the beta blocker. Before I was prescribed bisoprolol the doctor wanted to put me on an ACE inhibitor but I requested a beta blocker as I heard the other can cause coughing. I do not want to take them so what else other than beta blockers or ACE inhibitors can I take? I will be discussing this with the doctor tomorrow but I'd like to know about a few other pills I could possibly take and not walk in there knowing nothing on the subject. Answered by Bonny Casebier 1 year ago.

There are many medications for high blood pressure that work in several approaches. Talk to your doctor about getting you a different one. Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors. These allow blood vessels to widen by preventing a hormone called angiotensin from affecting blood vessels. Frequently prescribed ACE inhibitors include captopril (Capoten), lisinopril (Prinivil, Zestril) and ramipril (Altace). Angiotensin II receptor blockers. These help blood vessels relax by blocking the action of angiotensin. Frequently prescribed angiotensin II receptor blockers include losartan (Cozaar), olmesartan (Benicar) and valsartan (Diovan). Beta blockers. These work by blocking certain nerve and hormonal signals to the heart and blood vessels, thus lowering blood pressure. Frequently prescribed beta blockers include metoprolol (Lopressor, Toprol XL), nadolol (Corgard) and penbutolol (Levatol). Calcium channel blockers. These prevent calcium from going into heart and blood vessel muscle cells, thus causing the cells to relax, which lowers blood pressure. Frequently prescribed calcium channel blockers include amlodipine (Norvasc), diltiazem (Cardizem, Dilacor XR) and nifedipine (Adalat, Procardia). Renin inhibitors. Renin is an enzyme produced by your kidneys that starts a chain of chemical steps that increases blood pressure. Aliskiren (Tekturna) slows down the production of renin, reducing its ability to begin this process... Answered by Alec Sobrio 1 year ago.

A side effect of most beta blockers is fatigue. It can be a side effect of almost every medication that is used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure), but beta blockers cause a bit more. Not everyone who takes an ACE Inhibitor develops a cough. ACE inhibitors are "terrific" medications for treating high blood pressure; consider giving them a try (I've been taking one for 6 months without a cough). If you do develop a cough, a good alternative are medications in the classification of Angiotensin Receptor Blockers (ARBs). There are also the Calcium Channel Blockers, but I'd try the ACE inhibitors first. Answered by Zora Capitani 1 year ago.

Ace inhibitors can cause coughing, but this is a type of reaction, and you will be taken off if it causes this. I cannot take them, but know a number of people who do with no problem. There is also a type of BP medications called ARB (angiotensin II receptor antagonist), as well as calcium channel blockers, alpha blockers, and vasodialators. You can search for these medications online and read up on them. For example, I have some heart issues so I cannot take the calcium channel blockers. But definitely discuss with your doctor. I have to take beta blockers, but you do get used to them after a while. FYI however, NEVER just stop taking blood pressure medication. Beta Blockers, for example, if you just stop them cold turkey, they can result in a serious heart related issue. Answered by Nilsa Stehr 1 year ago.

Magnesium regulates blood pressure. Find out why it's high in the first place and work on that. is it due to high cholesterol? Try red yeast rice Answered by Elroy Haymore 1 year ago.

poor you,i have suffered sporadically with this since the age of 6 and it is awful,i have found a way to stop them 98% of the time,like you i used to lay down and wait but that used to take ages,to calm it down , my tip is at the first flutter take an intake of breath ,hold nose and breath ,bend forward and ,bear down blowing out but holding it in at same time,put pressure with hands on the solar plexus area under your rib cage,mid centre,above belly button,this really does work,also get your iron levels checked as a low iron level can cause attacks to.fizzy drinks also aggravate it,all the best,by the way i am 60 now and you can e mail me if you want Answered by Sadie Shrawder 1 year ago.
