Hi: everyone! I am a 53 yr old male with high blood presure problems and have a case of palpitations that come and go. I have been treated for this and have been on a few meds. none worked well in lowering my nasty b.p. I am now in what is called one the best Hmo systems, and iv been put on Toprol xl 200mg per day, and Diovan 80mg per day! my b.p has dropped to almost normal levels now. (yahoo) however I have the worst Side Effects known to mankind. from loss of sleep! to pannic attacks (iv never had before) blurr vision at times! hair thinning out ! dry mouth, sticky eye lids, running nose ! cramping in legs and arms and neck 99% of the time on these! and well, You name it I got it !! I have asked a few times to be changed to diffrent meds! but as of yet No luck.. my Doctor who I like, only upped the Diovan from 40mg to 80mg more !
God !!! Why!! Now I have a harsh Cough and cramps beyound control. I cant sleep at night !
and well kick me in the tail friends, My old friend Palpitations have returned with the no sleep problem.. yes they are rapid heartbeats extra beats, had every test done known to mankind..
and was told point blank.. oh! Dont worry about it.. they cant hurt you ! lots of people have them.. I asked and got help to find out what caused my Palpitation problem first off.. turns out
it was a medication called Procardia xl turns out a Hmo doctor, gave me to big a dose ! for a few months.. this caused the problem I have now.. I say Thanks to the Big K plan hmo system
they are worst around. and are worthless! Im starting to feel the same about all Hmo systems
Can anyone who has the same problems with these drugs or meds tell me! what you did..
and how to overcome the sleepless nights - and stop some side effects ! thanks E.T.
