simple question - is anyone allergic to b.p meds ? or cant tollerate them ?
so far I cant take beta blockers - or cal channel blockers or ace inhibbitors . without getting allergic reactions adverse
side effects !
seems as im getting older in age now 50s..the most I can tollerate any medication is like 1 to 2months , and that is hard to do ! iv been in the ER and Hospital over this a few times !!
each time , the doctor sticks me on one of the stupid medications iv taken before ? even if I tell them , had problems with that.. they insist it wont hurt me ..
im now wondering whats in the pills - is the medication itsself or fillers that cause the side effects or allergic
and I cant even go see a allergest about the drugs.. to get tested for them or have them tested ?
I did read there is new implant , for people who cant take b.p meds.. but its only in the trail runs now.. of testing
though they say it works fine .
anyone read about that new deal ?
wonder if its worth getting cutt up for ? and how long till the battery fails.. before your get re opened again ?
hmmmm.. lots to think about on that issue !
What kinds of allergic reactions are you having to the medications?
Allergic reactions to beta-blockers and calcium channel blockers are: rash, itching, swelling, dizziness, trouble breathing. Which usually subside with continuous use...in other words, letting your body adjust to them.
I'm not sure about ACE inhibitors and any allegic reactions to them.
What exactly does this "trial implant" you're talking about do?
What happens when you get an allergic reaction to these meds? Serious life threatening allergic reactions include swelling of the tongue and lips. This can happen with any medications if allergic to them. My mom had a several allergic reaction to an ace inhibitor where her tongue and lips swelled. Most heart medications do have side effects such as tiredness.
I have been on meny bp meds.. mostly beta blockers -
I get the normal side effects - but with beta blockers its mostly long term effects..that
effects the blood sugar levels. due to that iv been taken off them one at a time.. and problems go away!
im on ccb now verapamil and yes I get swollen ankles and as well lips and throat closeing and eyes drying and dry mouth and ears ringing and dizzyness and out of breath feelings ,shortness of breath no energy at all. its just a bad drug for me..
yes,, I have gotten Hives a few times ! from the meds. clearly im allergic
but my dumbell doctor does not understand it .
the new b.p lowering deal , is online - its implanted in the upper right chest area
and is small like a battery box.. with wires or leads to the right and left neck
its got sensors on them .. it somehow signals the brain to slow and lower the b.p
down eletronic wise. ? heck I will look it up and repost it tomorrow ..
I know its in the early stages of testing
and it said , its for people who can not take b.p medications .. as it has zero side effects !
When I had my first stent procedure, they put me on a blood pressure medicine for the first time (do not remember name). They sent me home the next day as planned. I was home for a few hours and my blood pressure crashed. I blacked out in the bathroom after feeling extremely nausious (went in to vomit I thought) and "came to" on the floor. We called the ambulance, the guys checked me out and were double checking that I wanted to go to the hospital. In "mid-contemplation" I blacked out again and the decision was made. They kept me for three more days and couldn't figure out anything except that it must be the bp med and tried something else. Haven't had that happen again.
So, I'm thinking yes? Certain bp meds could not be compatible with certain individuals. Not sure if this helps and I am by NO MEANS an authority at all. Best wishes!!
Yes it helps alot ! it confirms to me at least, that some medications do cause harm
and Doctors should take more time and fully test -and do a trial run with us poor folks who have to take meds for b.p or other reasons. to see that we can tollerate it first and or
what side effects we get from it. I think its worth sitting in a office or waiting room for a few need hours, so the doctor can watch and ask us how or what we feel on the meds.
then test or go from that point ! that is called safe carefull care (careing) that does not happen these days! with 99.9 % of doctors ,as its always a rush job visit in and out !
and clearly no doctor can really check a person out in 10 to 15mins. when that happens
its a guessing game. and ginny pig time ! in short its poor and unsafe -non careing
(care) but again in this world now, its pay more and get less.
I feel alot of these doctors are mostly in it for the Money. and the pharm mfg companys and Insurance companys are making it worse with bonus $ and trips and cars and whatever .. bling bling .. dash for the cash ,
its a shame ! and we should get better care and doctors ! the oath they took , to some means nothing at all. iv met a few young doctors that just full of themselfs.
well thats about it.. thanks again for your post yes it helped alot..
