Within 1 month of taking bladder control medication diagnosed with high blood pressure.Switched to Detrol LA but blood pressure was still high. Have been taking blood pressure medicene 4 months. Labwork came back last week showing slightly low level of potassium. Labs are to be rechecked for potassium and magnessium.Could bladder control medications cause the low potassium,then the low potassium cause the high blood pressure? Can I use the over the counter oxytrol with the low potassium, high blood, pressure, and evista?
From this study (3 months ago):
I started taking Lyrica back in 2008, and started having Cushing-like symptoms the same year, but my doctors at the va thought it was related to a nodule that was found on the left adrenal gland around the same time. I have been bounced from specialist to specialist for years, and my labs come back normal almost every time; however, there is significant weight gain (even though I hepcat healthy and attempt to exercise), and I am growing again (at 36). Last time I checked I was 5'11.5 and a few months ago I was bed ridden with leg/knee pain. I am now 6'2 even.
