Discussions that mention norvasc

High & Low Blood Pressure board


I am having a nissen fundoplication surgical procedure on my stomach in a couple weeks. This procedure involves wraping the top of my stomach around my esophagus and stitching it in place. It will reduce my ability to swallow large items. I will be on a liquid only diet for the first two weeks until the swelling goes down and I can swallow better. I realized this morning that this might cause a problem with taking my medications. For my blood pressure, I am on Dyazide and Norvasc. Anyone out there had to accommodate taking your BP meds without swallowing? I am concerned about keeping my BP under control while I recouperate.

I will talk to my doctor and pharmacist next week, but I was hoping someone on this list might give me some advance insight.
