Blood test, urinary tests and Echocardiograms

Hi all!

Well all the above, I passed with flying colors! Nothing wrong with any of the results from the above. Dr. took a look at the figures and said...well, let me send you to a gyn. to see if you are peri-menopausal. What the heck! Haven't I been asking that all along!!!!!????

Anyway, the clonidine and lisinopril seem to be doing fine. I take 1/2 of .1 mg of clonidine in the early am the lisinopril at lunch and the other 1/2 of the chlonidine in the evening. The only side effects are sleepiness....which seems to be getting better as long as I drink green tea.

Well gotta go! Just giving you all an update!!!

Re: Blood test, urinary tests and Echocardiograms

Good news about the tests! Glad your current drug combo is working! The sleepiness from the clonidine should lessen as time goes on.

Since you've checked out the menopause board, you know that peri can be hard to diagnose. The tests aren't that reliable, but "you know it when you experience it," as the ladies there can all tell you.

Good luck!
