Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Thank you for the input.
Blood pressure may change over years. As people age, systolic blood pressure can be higher. I feel you will need addition of other medicines. A small dose of diuretic is often necessary. You can discuss with your doctor.
Any query, please feel free to ask. It will be my privilege to assist you. Regards.
I would like to know if after using Telma 40 for 10 years it has become less effective . Would change help . Any safe drug you would like to suggest .
I believe telma is working.These group of drugs or ARBs are usually safe. When you are taking for 10 years, it is probably not a problem. You likely need to increase the dose or medicine. It has been observed that in some stage a water pill is helpful.
Final question. What is water pill . How does one get it .
Can you suggest a way I can give up these medicines
I am not satisfied with your reply and info . I would like to know how to bring
down my BP to 120/70 . Finally , how reliable is OMORON electronic meter .
Is TELMA 80 available . Will it be unsafe to switch over . Will OLMESAR be better . My brother has found it very effective and his BP remains 120/70 .
What about taking Telma40 , morning and night .
Finally , my pulse rate remains steady between 56 and 64 , which probably is low . Should I give up Cardensiel . What should be the ideal Pulse rate .
Please advise satisfactorily so that I can release the payment . Thanks !
Is it safe for me to give up taking Cardensiel . Tachicardia was detected a couple of years ago, and the doctor put me on to this medicine . I am keen
to minimise the medicines I am taking . Is it acceptable to give up Cardensiel
and see what happens . If pulse rate shoots up I can start again .
I am feeling a bit lazy and tired after some physical effort . Could it be
due to low pulse rate .
Please advise .
I guess you are right . I am taking 1 tablet of 2.5mg every morning . Is there
a smaller dose available . Please advise .
Ever since my single graft LIMA/LAD CABG operation 10 years ago , I have
had a rather painful keloid on my 3 inch incision on my sternum . I have tried
a few treatments like lasers and creams , but of no avail . I have read thru
GOOGLE that certain Silicone Gels are very effective . Could you give me some
advice on this .
This concerns my BP . You had prescribed extra Telma 40 at night and reducing
cardensiel to half of 1.25 mg in order to reduce my sistolic and increase my
pulse rate ( see previous mails ) . My pulse rate still is 52-60 , and sistolic 120-160.
Please advise .
Thanks for replying . Its scary to know that I could still have cardiac problem.
About 18 months ago I was started on 5mg Bisoprolol in India. In Mauritius after a TMT
doctor reduced it to 2.5mg. Now last 4/5 days I reduced to 1.25mg after advice from you . I wonder if needs more time to increase the pulse rate . It is only my systolic
that worries me . Dystolic is always 65-75. Which is more relevant and important.
What is your opinion on electronic BP meters. Are they pretty reliable.
Which troponin( I or T ) test should be done . And what electrolytes .
