Home remedies for light-headedness, dizziness (high blood pressure-related)?
My mother is in her 60s. She has high blood pressure, and is taking medication for that (Lisinopril, a generic for Prinivil). She also has been having sporadic light-headedness and dizzy spells. Sometimes it's when she wakes up, sometimes it's after work at 6pm-- the timing is random, whether or not she eats... Asked by Meryl Wetselline 1 year ago.

My mother is in her 60s. She has high blood pressure, and is taking medication for that (Lisinopril, a generic for Prinivil). She also has been having sporadic light-headedness and dizzy spells. Sometimes it's when she wakes up, sometimes it's after work at 6pm-- the timing is random, whether or not she eats anything. Generally she doesn't eat breakfast or much at all during the day (she had a Twinkie for today's breakfast, for instance). She's also taking medication for dizziness-- Hydrochlorothiazise, a generic for Oretic/Esidrix that, randomly enough, says it may cause dizziness on the bottle. Her dizziness is so bad that she doesn't want to drive, for fear of passing out. She started taking the dizziness pills on Wednesday, the blood pressure pills on Thursday. The doctor said her blood pressure medication might take about two weeks to start working properly. Until then, I figure that whatever the cause, whether it's her blood pressure or the medication, similar home remedies would work to help her get over the light-headedness, right? Does anyone have any recommendations of food or actions to take that could help my mother get over her light-headedness and dizzy spells until her blood-pressure medication starts working? Answered by Levi Suk 1 year ago.

If she's not on potassium she should be eating lots of bananas. I am on lisinopril, metoprolol, potassium and triamterine hydrocholathiazide for high blood pressure. Answered by Jennifer Petanick 1 year ago.

I assume you mean 180/125. If this is one of a number of readings, or has come from a 24 hour monitor, it is quite high. If it is a one off, performed in a chemist or on a home machine, it is meaningless and simply needs repeated by your GP or practice nurse. Three things lower BP 1) Being no more than your ideal weight 2)Taking regular vigorous exercise 3)Reducing your salt intake. If your 180/125 is a valid reading these will NOT be sufficient to normalise your BP! If your BP is at this level your stroke and heart attack risk will be elevated and you MUST take conventional therapy to reduce this risk. I am afraid no homeopathic,herbal or natural remedy will be of any real benefit. I am disappointed and concerned that so many of the answers given include the suggestions that homeopathic remedies will lower your blood pressure. There is overwhelming evidence that they do not. Such advise, if your blood pressure is truly at this level will put your health at VERY serious risk. I am also appalled that, I presume the homeopaths, have given thumbs down to the three answers suggesting conventional therapy, as they will undoubtedly to my answer. It really shows how many poorly educated, unscientific and dangerous answers do appear on Answers! Answered by Yuri Papan 1 year 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 Daniel Kallam 1 year ago.


Which otc drug is comparable to hydrochlorothiazide?
Asked by Ta Barajos 1 year ago.

Hydrochlorothiazide, abbreviated HCTZ, HCT, or HZT, is a first-line diuretic drug of the thiazide class that acts by inhibiting the kidneys' ability to retain water. This reduces the volume of the blood, decreasing blood return to the heart and thus cardiac output and, by other mechanisms, is believed to lower peripheral vascular resistance.[2] Hydrochlorothiazide is a calcium-sparing diuretic, meaning it can help the body get rid of excess water while still keeping calcium. Hydrochlorothiazide is sold both as a generic drug and under a large number of brand names, including Apo-Hydro, Aquazide H,Dichlotride, Hydrodiuril, HydroSaluric, Hydrochlorot, Microzide, Esidrex, and Oretic.
