I have serious insomnia have not been able to sleep, also have thoughts of suicide. I know this isnt near enough to cause death but I wanted to know if there were any adverse affects to mixing the three? Asked by Jewell Stove 1 year ago.

you should be worried about vomiting in the morning Answered by Shantelle Lockery 1 year ago.

The zestoretic won't do anything to help you sleep, but taking 3 of them is pretty stupid. They are for blood pressure, and they can make you sick or make your pass out (not sleep, just pass out when you stand up - you fall over and wake up again), they have some pretty nasty side effects. Don't take them thinking they will help you sleep, it doesn't work that way. Ambien and klonopin work on the brain the same way and have a cumulative effect. The biggest danger from taking so many is that if you don't take them the next night, 1) you might have a seizure and 2) you won't be able to sleep at all. The ambien in particular takes away from the brain the ability to manage sleep, and you quickly will find yourself unable to sleep without it. Once you reach that point, you are in trouble. It takes the brain a very very long time to heal and recover, and you will suffer severe insomnia during that time. If you take them long enough, it will take many months to recover. These are potent and addictive drugs, and do bad things to the brain. There is a reason we keep harping on and on about not taking these drugs, and if you keep doing what you are doing, you will find out for your self why - painfully. Tolerance and dependence set in real fast, and the withdrawals can be severe. Protracted withdrawals from ambien and benzos can last over a year. Answered by Kanisha Porraz 1 year ago.

My mother also has bipolar disorder and suffers from insomnia. I know that when she changed meds in anyway it would affect her sleep. I would suggest making an appointment with your doctor and go over all the meds you're taking and see if any of them could be causing your sleeplessness. Also, how many Ambien did you take. I once took 2 cause I had a really severe migraine, and I ended up walking around the room hallucinating instead of sleeping. lol, It was quite weird. But, as for right now, one technique I use to fall asleep ( I suffer from insomnia, it runs in my family) is I say a long lengthy prayer, making it a point to NOT forget anyone in my prayers, and to keep my eyes close the whole time. I pray for for a restful sleep, and on and on and on. I just keep praying and praying. I usually fall asleep praying, and if I wake up in the middle of the night, I just keep the prayer going by thinking of people I've forgotten to pray about. I know it seems weird, but it works for me. Good luck. Answered by Clair Lundblad 1 year ago.

That is a very bad sign. Speak to your doctor within the next few weeks. All three of those cause liver damage. The thing with liver damage though is that its cumulative. A few months of just using one pill isn't a great idea and 10 pills a day is awful. They always cause some damage but when taken in small amounts don't do much but what you are doing is very harmful. Answered by Luann Stapelton 1 year ago.

Oh wow well you will probably be asleep for a good while, make an appointment with your doctor and make sure you tell him you have suicidal thoughts also cause side affects can trigger worsen those thoughts into actions. If your not sure about it and start feeling sick id call posion control. Answered by Sofia Snaders 1 year ago.

I have been eating fruits and vegetables along with light and fit yogart during the day and a light meal for dinner and am gaining weight! I can't stand to gain anymore . I am getting the mirena iud today for a hormonal imbalance I am afraid I'll gain even more with that. Let me know of your experiences with these meds. Thank you Answered by Albert Eagleman 1 year ago.

Zoloft's Typical Side Effects: headache, nausea, dry mouth, sweating, sleepiness or insomnia, and diarrhea or constipation, weight gain, loss of libido. Most everything but the weight gain and loss of libido usually goes away within a couple of weeks. Zestoretic side effects can include: Gout, dehydration, fluid overload, weight gain. I don't know why you'd get an IUD for a hormone imbalance, rather than bio-identical hormones- that's strange. IUD's can cause very heavy bleeding. Answered by Donella Reaume 1 year ago.

I take Avandia, and some of the possible facet impacts is weight attain. In the commencing I used to be able to lose weight, but now, after 4 yrs, I in finding it way more complex. I'm nonetheless careful about what I eat- counting carbs and energy, but it surely's a battle. You're proper although- most medical professionals push their type 2 sufferers to drop some weight, and it's tested that it does support curb blood sugar stages, however the med could make it practically impossible to do this!! Answered by Catrice Torrance 1 year ago.

Sounds to me like the pills are giving you a hormone imbalance already, perhaps most of the weight gain is prolactin saturation the lymphatic system gets overloaded with it if the body gets too much toxic chemistry in it. Prolacin imbalance will result in a hormonal estrogen imbalance. Ob1 Answered by Shantell Lapinski 1 year ago.

Lower than normal blood pressure while on medication?
A couple of years ago I was diagnosed with high blood pressure, and put on Zestoretic, which brought it nicely down to usually in the 110-120 / 70-80 range. I've lost about 28 lbs since then. I just checked my BP again, and it had a reading of 103 / 68. Should I alert my doctor if I get more readings... Asked by Darcy Thach 1 year ago.

A couple of years ago I was diagnosed with high blood pressure, and put on Zestoretic, which brought it nicely down to usually in the 110-120 / 70-80 range. I've lost about 28 lbs since then. I just checked my BP again, and it had a reading of 103 / 68. Should I alert my doctor if I get more readings like this, so he can adjust the medication? Or are readings like that perfectly OK? Answered by Garland Mckelvey 1 year ago.

congrats on the weightloss! if you are still on the same dosage of meds (that you were when you weighed more) you will need to tell the doctor...he may need to reduce the dosage due to the weight loss.. Answered by Joey Rosell 1 year ago.

definitely talk with your doctor ASAP. If I needed to lower my blood pressure I'd just lose weight, slow down on drinking liquids, and halt the caffeine. So now that you've lost your weight maybe you don't need the pills anymore. But BP too low could cause a coma, so see your doctor quickly. Don't stop taking the pills quickly, but the doc might want to reduce the dosage until you can get off of them safely. Answered by Eugenia Chudej 1 year ago.

You have a normal blood pressure. 120/80 is a healthy blood pressure. Answered by Arlene Gjelaj 1 year ago.

reading like that are GREAT if you feel okay. If you start to feel light headed or dizzy when you stand up you may be on to high a dose now. Talk to your doctor either way what can it hurt.. Answered by Felipa Buxbaum 1 year ago.

yeah you might want to alert him, its not dangerous to have your blood pressure where its at (dont take my word for it though i dont want any liability) but pending on how high your dose is it might be low enough that he may have you stop the meds completely. good job though, most people dont make enough effort on lifestyle changes to lower it enough that they should ever be off the meds Answered by Valentin Hazelrigg 1 year ago.

I would simply call and tell them if you feel it's a problem. That reading sounds pretty good to me. Answered by Iola Weatherill 1 year ago.


Whats best way to take lisinopril 2.5 mg and hydrochlorothiazide 25 mg together and with water or juices?
whats best time in morning and proper way for both pills Asked by Ai Prude 1 year ago.

Take these two medications together, or ask your physician if you can get the two combined in one pill-Prinizide,Zestoretic as it is available this way. Take these medications early in the day to avoid sleep problems.Hctz acts like a diurectic"water pill" to regulate blood pressure, so you don't want to take at night-you will be up urinating all night. Take these medications with or without food. Take with food if it causes an upset stomach. Do not take antacids within 2 hours of this medicine. This may decrease medications theraputic effects. You can get sunburned more easily. Avoid sun, sunlamps, and tanning beds. Use sunscreen; wear protective clothing and eyewear. If you miss a dose, take it when you remember-never double up though. Hope this helps Answered by Christen Trautz 1 year ago.

Yes, I think so, because my dad who also has high blood pressure take a similiar combination the drug is called...... tenoretic; which is the combination of atenolol which is an anti-high blood pressure and chlorthalidone which is a diuretic which means it removes salt because salt holds in body fluid which can increase Blood pressure both mixed in one pill. Looking at these two drugs hydrochlorothiazide which is also a diuretic and lisinopril which is an ace inhibitor which also is an anti-hypertensive of another class. It should be ok because it very similiar combination. But also a word of advice my doctor always tells me which is, if new prolonged symptoms occur while taking these drugs then discontinue and see your doctor as soon as possible.

Lower than normal blood pressure while on medication?
A couple of years ago I was diagnosed with high blood pressure, and put on Zestoretic, which brought it nicely down to usually in the 110-120 / 70-80 range. I've lost about 28 lbs since then. I just checked my BP again, and it had a reading of 103 / 68. Should I alert my doctor if I get more readings... Asked by Vikki Balsley 1 year ago.

I just checked my BP again, and it had a reading of 103 / 68. Should I alert my doctor if I get more readings like this, so he can adjust the medication? Or are readings like that perfectly OK? Answered by Nyla Belfiore 1 year ago.

congrats on the weightloss! if you are still on the same dosage of meds (that you were when you weighed more) you will need to tell the doctor...he may need to reduce the dosage due to the weight loss.. Answered by Shila Helde 1 year ago.

definitely talk with your doctor ASAP. If I needed to lower my blood pressure I'd just lose weight, slow down on drinking liquids, and halt the caffeine. So now that you've lost your weight maybe you don't need the pills anymore. But BP too low could cause a coma, so see your doctor quickly. Don't stop taking the pills quickly, but the doc might want to reduce the dosage until you can get off of them safely. Answered by Rosalba Terrones 1 year ago.

You have a normal blood pressure. 120/80 is a healthy blood pressure. Answered by Misty Medland 1 year ago.

reading like that are GREAT if you feel okay. If you start to feel light headed or dizzy when you stand up you may be on to high a dose now. Talk to your doctor either way what can it hurt.. Answered by Manual Pinena 1 year ago.

yeah you might want to alert him, its not dangerous to have your blood pressure where its at (dont take my word for it though i dont want any liability) but pending on how high your dose is it might be low enough that he may have you stop the meds completely. good job though, most people dont make enough effort on lifestyle changes to lower it enough that they should ever be off the meds Answered by Gretchen Canady 1 year ago.

I would simply call and tell them if you feel it's a problem. That reading sounds pretty good to me. Answered by Allena Arn 1 year ago.


Whats best way to take lisinopril 2.5 mg and hydrochlorothiazide 25 mg together and with water or juices?
whats best time in morning and proper way for both pills Asked by January Mannebach 1 year ago.

Take these two medications together, or ask your physician if you can get the two combined in one pill-Prinizide,Zestoretic as it is available this way. Take these medications early in the day to avoid sleep problems.Hctz acts like a diurectic"water pill" to regulate blood pressure, so you don't want to take at night-you will be up urinating all night. Take these medications with or without food. Take with food if it causes an upset stomach. Do not take antacids within 2 hours of this medicine. This may decrease medications theraputic effects. You can get sunburned more easily. Avoid sun, sunlamps, and tanning beds. Use sunscreen; wear protective clothing and eyewear. If you miss a dose, take it when you remember-never double up though. Hope this helps Answered by Jolyn Stadtlander 1 year ago.

Yes, I think so, because my dad who also has high blood pressure take a similiar combination the drug is called...... tenoretic; which is the combination of atenolol which is an anti-high blood pressure and chlorthalidone which is a diuretic which means it removes salt because salt holds in body fluid which can increase Blood pressure both mixed in one pill. Looking at these two drugs hydrochlorothiazide which is also a diuretic and lisinopril which is an ace inhibitor which also is an anti-hypertensive of another class. It should be ok because it very similiar combination. But also a word of advice my doctor always tells me which is, if new prolonged symptoms occur while taking these drugs then discontinue and see your doctor as soon as possible.

I took 4 ambien, 3 klonopin and 3 zestoretic just so I could sleep, should I be worried?
I have serious insomnia have not been able to sleep, also have thoughts of suicide. I know this isnt near enough to cause death but I wanted to know if there were any adverse affects to mixing the three? Asked by Refugio Roadruck 1 year ago.

you should be worried about vomiting in the morning Answered by Sharlene Tees 1 year ago.

The zestoretic won't do anything to help you sleep, but taking 3 of them is pretty stupid. They are for blood pressure, and they can make you sick or make your pass out (not sleep, just pass out when you stand up - you fall over and wake up again), they have some pretty nasty side effects. Don't take them thinking they will help you sleep, it doesn't work that way. Ambien and klonopin work on the brain the same way and have a cumulative effect. The biggest danger from taking so many is that if you don't take them the next night, 1) you might have a seizure and 2) you won't be able to sleep at all. The ambien in particular takes away from the brain the ability to manage sleep, and you quickly will find yourself unable to sleep without it. Once you reach that point, you are in trouble. It takes the brain a very very long time to heal and recover, and you will suffer severe insomnia during that time. If you take them long enough, it will take many months to recover. These are potent and addictive drugs, and do bad things to the brain. There is a reason we keep harping on and on about not taking these drugs, and if you keep doing what you are doing, you will find out for your self why - painfully. Tolerance and dependence set in real fast, and the withdrawals can be severe. Protracted withdrawals from ambien and benzos can last over a year. Answered by Claud Graniero 1 year ago.

My mother also has bipolar disorder and suffers from insomnia. I know that when she changed meds in anyway it would affect her sleep. I would suggest making an appointment with your doctor and go over all the meds you're taking and see if any of them could be causing your sleeplessness. Also, how many Ambien did you take. I once took 2 cause I had a really severe migraine, and I ended up walking around the room hallucinating instead of sleeping. lol, It was quite weird. But, as for right now, one technique I use to fall asleep ( I suffer from insomnia, it runs in my family) is I say a long lengthy prayer, making it a point to NOT forget anyone in my prayers, and to keep my eyes close the whole time. I pray for for a restful sleep, and on and on and on. I just keep praying and praying. I usually fall asleep praying, and if I wake up in the middle of the night, I just keep the prayer going by thinking of people I've forgotten to pray about. I know it seems weird, but it works for me. Good luck. Answered by Kristeen Peinado 1 year ago.

That is a very bad sign. Speak to your doctor within the next few weeks. All three of those cause liver damage. The thing with liver damage though is that its cumulative. A few months of just using one pill isn't a great idea and 10 pills a day is awful. They always cause some damage but when taken in small amounts don't do much but what you are doing is very harmful. Answered by Randolph Brener 1 year ago.

Oh wow well you will probably be asleep for a good while, make an appointment with your doctor and make sure you tell him you have suicidal thoughts also cause side affects can trigger worsen those thoughts into actions. If your not sure about it and start feeling sick id call posion control. Answered by Basilia Drumgole 1 year ago.

I have been eating fruits and vegetables along with light and fit yogart during the day and a light meal for dinner and am gaining weight! I can't stand to gain anymore . I am getting the mirena iud today for a hormonal imbalance I am afraid I'll gain even more with that. Let me know of your experiences with these meds. Thank you Answered by Juan Zenzen 1 year ago.

Zoloft's Typical Side Effects: headache, nausea, dry mouth, sweating, sleepiness or insomnia, and diarrhea or constipation, weight gain, loss of libido. Most everything but the weight gain and loss of libido usually goes away within a couple of weeks. Zestoretic side effects can include: Gout, dehydration, fluid overload, weight gain. I don't know why you'd get an IUD for a hormone imbalance, rather than bio-identical hormones- that's strange. IUD's can cause very heavy bleeding. Answered by Lawana Cobham 1 year ago.

I'm nonetheless careful about what I eat- counting carbs and energy, but it surely's a battle. You're proper although- most medical professionals push their type 2 sufferers to drop some weight, and it's tested that it does support curb blood sugar stages, however the med could make it practically impossible to do this!! Answered by Karine Pesantes 1 year ago.

Sounds to me like the pills are giving you a hormone imbalance already, perhaps most of the weight gain is prolactin saturation the lymphatic system gets overloaded with it if the body gets too much toxic chemistry in it. Prolacin imbalance will result in a hormonal estrogen imbalance. Ob1 Answered by Dominic Kieft 1 year ago.

Talk to your doctor and ask if you can be referred to a Dietitian. I'm talking about somebody with the letters RD (registered dietitian) and/or LD (licensed dietitian) behind his or her name. A lot of folks call themselves "nutritionists" but that's not the same thing. A good Dietitian could help you. I took Paxil and got fat. It's similar to Zoloft, I don't know anything about the other drug you mention. I don't know what kind of "hormonal imbalance" you have but that could be a factor.
