    I'm a 68 y/o guy that had angina and angioplasty 4 years ago. Before that, I worked out, ate a strict diet, never had high cholesterol or high blood pressure. Since I've been taking the blood pressure stuff they gave me (clonidine, carvedilol, benazepril), I've been having episodes of systolic pressure in the 130's and 40's. It's never gone that high before. Last week I noticed that these episodes seemed to coincide with my taking 20mg oxycodone immediate release. From what I know, it should be depressing my system. Does anynone know if there is a relationship between taking oxy and having blood pressure spikes? Any response would be appreciated.

  • Hello. I started taking Glucophage, 500 mg ER at ...

    Hello.
    I started taking Glucophage, 500 mg ER at dinner and now I take it at breakfast and dinner. NOW I have blood pressure reading around 167/99!!! I have NEVER had high blood pressure!!!.....If I take ill, my pressure will rise; like a bad cold and cough.....but always goes right back down....to 118/78....numbers like that. So far, the glucophage is NOT bringing down my numbers, so I assume the dosage will be increased.....but at what risk? Do I trade in high blood sugar hovering over 300, or do I keep taking this, and die of a stroke because my blood pressure hovers at 170/100? Your thoughts, please. I am a female 61 years old, weighting in at 235lbs, 5'7" tall.

    I have been taking Pepcid AC for over ten years on a daily basis. Never more than two per day. Recent stressors have sent my BP into the danger zone. I am now taking Metoprolol and a mild tranquilizer with some positive results. I will see my doctor in two days and plan to ask about Pepcid.
