Discussions that mention norvasc

High & Low Blood Pressure board


Thanks so much for replying~!

my son was hospitalized in dec for 3 days (just long enough to stabalize his high BP) they still dont know WHY it is high..he had an MRI...CT scan, many many blood & urine tests also.

he is also on Norvasc & ramapril. The new drug he is on is Amiloride.
The drs never mentioned "hypokalimia"?:confused:

it sure had me worried reading about the side effects..as if he doesnt have enough to deal with.
he has to go back at the end of july..they did more blood tests, they said his aldosterone/renine was a bit high as well as creatinine(sp)?
i dont know anymore....its been 8 months & we still have no answers.
:(
