Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 week ago):
Taking the drug once a week would feel very poorly after taking and it would take a couple of days to get over it.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I can't make this site allow me to list other drugs. I take lots of Calcium and Vit D and was on Lotrel but got light headed and am now on just Benazepril and have fluctuating blood pressure and feel weird and light headed
From this study (2 months ago):
My husband had to call the paramedics 4 times in the last year and a half. My blood pressure would drop really low and I would pass out. The after math was dizziness for anywhere from 1 week to a month. I have now been diagnosed with Cardiogenic syncope syndrome. I know it was from taking the forteo, as other people are reporting heart problems from this medication as well. My Advice DO NOT TAKE IT! This a horrible condition to live with, as just about anything can trigger it.
