Lower your blood sugar levels with Actos.

Filed under: Uncategorized — robertprice @ 2:26 pm

Actos is used for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. The medication helps to improve insulin sensitivity to lower blood sugar and keep it under control. By lowering blood sugar levels, Actos can also reduce your risk of developing long-term problems related to diabetes, such as heart disease or diabetic nephropathy.

More about Actos

Avoid use of Actos if you have type 1 diabetes, or if you are in a state of diabetic ketoacidosis. Before taking Actos, tell your doctor if you have congestive heart failure or heart disease, a history of heart attack or stroke, or liver disease.

Know the signs of low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) and how to recognize them, including hunger, headache, confusion, irritability, drowsiness, weakness, dizziness, tremors, sweating, fast heartbeat. Always keep a source of sugar available in case you have symptoms of low blood sugar.

Some women using Actos have started having menstrual periods, even after not having a period for a long time due to a medical condition. You may be able to get pregnant if your periods restart. Talk with your doctor about the need for birth control. Women may also be more likely than men to have bone fractures in the upper arm, hand, or foot while taking Actos. Talk with your doctor if you are concerned about this possibility.

Before taking Actos tell your doctor

  • if you have congestive heart failure or heart disease;
  • a history of heart attack or stroke; or
  • liver disease.

What should I avoid while taking Actos?

Avoid drinking alcohol while taking Actos. Alcohol lowers blood sugar and may increase the risk of hypoglycemia while you are taking this medicine.

  • feeling short of breath, even with mild exertion;
  • swelling or rapid weight gain;
  • chest pain, general ill feeling;

Why is Lopressor prescribed?

Filed under: Uncategorized — robertprice @ 11:29 am

Lopressor, a type of medication known as a beta blocker, is used in the treatment of high blood pressure, angina pectoris (chest pain, usually caused by lack of oxygen to the heart due to clogged arteries), and heart attack. When prescribed for high blood pressure, it is effective when used alone or in combination with other high blood pressure medications. Beta blockers decrease the force and rate of heart contractions, thereby reducing the demand for oxygen and lowering blood pressure.

Occasionally doctors prescribe Lopressor for the treatment of aggressive behavior, prevention of migraine headache, and relief of temporary anxiety.

An extended-release form of this drug, called Toprol-XL, is prescribed for high blood pressure, angina, and heart failure.

Most important facts about Lopressor.

If you have high blood pressure, you must take Lopressor regularly for it to be effective. Since blood pressure declines gradually, it may be several weeks before you get the full benefit of Lopressor; and you must continue taking it even if you are feeling well. Lopressor does not cure high blood pressure; it merely keeps it under control.

How is Lopressor taken?

Lopressor should be taken with food or immediately after you have eaten.
Take Lopressor exactly as prescribed, even if your symptoms have disappeared.
Try not to miss any doses. If this medication is not taken regularly, your condition may worsen.

If you miss a dose.

If it is within 4 hours of your next dose, skip the one you missed and go back to your regular schedule. Never take 2 doses of Lopressor at the same time.

What side effects may occur?

If any develop or change in intensity, inform your doctor as soon as possible. Only your doctor can determine if it is safe for you to continue taking Lopressor.

  • depression
  • diarrhea
  • dizziness
  • itching
  • rash
  • shortness of breath
  • slow heartbeat
  • tiredness

  • have abnormal vaginal bleeding that a doctor has not checked;
  • have liver disease; or
  • have any type of breast, uterine, or hormone-dependent cancer
