Customer Question
Hi I am a...

Hi I am a 62 year old male that had a triple heart bypass 9 years ago and am currently taking Bilocor 5 and amloc 10 for the past 9 years. Last month I was diagnosed with depression and has been taking Zytomil 10mg since. My question is how do these drugs interact with each other because I battle now with trouble sleeping and sweat a lot during the night when I am in bed.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been feeling this way? Have you reached out to anyone about this yet?

Yes I have in respect of the depression. Also talked to my doctor about the sweating and he mentioned that it was one of the side effects

Zytomil is escitalopram

Bilocor is bisoprolol

Amloc is amlodipine

there are no drug interactions between these drugs.

your trouble with sleeping and sweats are not due to these medications.

have you had your thyroid hormone levels checked? you should get that checked? high thyroid hormone levels can cause weight loss, trouble sleeping, fast heart rate and poor sleep. and sweats.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
