That sounds awful. It sounds like they are checking everything. I wonder, did they check her carotid arteries with an ultrasound? Is the nausea making her BP rise?
The nausea could be a side effect from her meds, but it also can be caused by severe elevated BP, that can cause nausea and sometimes sweating along with the nausea.
Thank you for your feedback! Yes, they have checked the arteries that are located in her neck and they were fine. I do believe that her nausea is making her BP rise, and the Dr prescribed a lot of meds, and those might cause nausea, so it sounds like a snowball...
As for the side effects, she had nausea for almost 1.5 weeks - during this time they've changed her meds from lisinopril to "diovan + "water pill" + novasc"...
Dr says it might be vertigo. Is that possible?
Also, can metoprolol cause nausea?
Go to Google and type in the name of the meds she is taking and next to it "side effects" i.e. "metroprolol side effects" and it takes you instantly to the side effects of that medication.
look at her eyes and see if they are moving back and forth, even slightly. Just a wild guess.
Hmm 2 of the more common side affects of diovan are nausea and vertigo... cymbalta can raise blood pressure slighty( 2-3 points) and can inhibit the the elimination of lopressor causing higher concentrations in the blood. I would question the doc about the cymbalta and the diovan.
Thanks to everyone!
1. the eyes are not moving back and forth
2. she didn't take norvasc yesterday as the Dr said she can just take 2 of metorpolol instead of 1 of metoprolol 50mg and 1 of norvasc 5mg. So, she slept just fine last night, no nausea today. The BP though has dropped to 99/60, pulse 77 on average. I think she is getting better...
