Customer Question

I have been on Zestril for blood pressure since 1996.. I am 74 years old.
I was very excited to know about your site & I want to try Cardio FX along with 4 other items, and I am going to try to have my internist monitor me.
What is the appropriate way to begin the switch? I feel like stopping "cold turkey"might not be be best. What is the recommendation?

Hi, I'm Robert and I'll be helping you with your computer question.

I don't think that you will find a doctor that would recommend dropping your current medication for the cardio FX under any circumstances.

One of the problems is that the company won't reveal what is in it which makes it impossible for any doctor to tell you how it would react with your current drugs.

This page has some more information about the company that markets it you might want to read.

Dear customer,

Thanks for your question.

Did you measure your blood pressure recently? What was the result? Why do you want to discontinue taking zestril?
