My mom is 91, 5 feet tall, has HTN (controlled for the most part), chf (controlled), afib (controlled)...takes multaq 800 mg per day, metoprolol 100 mg per day, diovan 160 mg per day, nifedipine 60 mg per day, hctz 25 mg per day...
Mom had a small bowell resection in 1981, 6-8 inches of small bowell
she has one kidney (its ok)
She is having bouts of diarrhea and we were wondering if the combination of htn etc pills cause diarrhea? She takes Immodium and that stops it for 3-5 days, then it returns. Then Immodium again.
The other question about the meds is : Would that combination of heart
meds make her sleepy? She complains about being sleepy often
and 3: Her blood pressure runs 135-145 over 50-55 ..with a heart rate of 45-55. would the blood pressure /heart ratere lead you to think it is important
