I was evaluated for renal artery stenosis, it was ok. I'm hypothyroid, on thyroid medication since 92, lab work done and thyroid levels are fine. I don't drink, smoke, or do any kind of illegal drugs. All symptoms listed on previous post were conveyed to the cardiologist I'm seeing. Was on Prednisone off and on, while being weened off Labetalol.I had highblood pressure readings before starting any asthma medication. With all the prescibed medication I'm recieving. I'm afraid to take anything else. I was told I have essential Hypertension.
With the information listed above, what else could be done?
The beta blockers seem to work best on keeping the blood pressure down. However I'm told people with asthma should not take them.
Q.How exactly do beta blockers cause problems for asthmatics?
What is a similiar drug, that could be used in it's place?
I feel like my concerns are not being addressed.
Maybe I'm not asking enough questions or the right questions.
Q. Any suggestions on question I might ask or how to
approach him with my concerns.
Could you please tell me how the following drugs work on reducing blood pressure?
Clonidine, Metoprolol, Diovan, Tiazac, Trametrene, HCTZ, Minoxidil
Thanks :> :>
Have a wonderful day
