This happened about 1 month ago and again last night. It came on 20 minutes after taking above medications with the addition of 2 baby aspirin. I've been on this regimin for 5 1//2 years. My BP also went up. After chewing 4 baby aspirin, per 911 operator's instruction, the heart started to slow almost immediately. i also take CoQ10 200 mg daily in the AM
On above meds and aspirin 325 mg for one year after heart attack. Dentist diagnosed Xerostomia with rampant tooth decay. Would like to determine which medication could be the cause; and information to aleviae symptoms and tooth decay.
With all these meds is there a chance the naproxen will cause kidney rejection. Or cause any of the other meds not work properly?
