Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 week ago):
My 19 yr old daughter is a Type 1 diabetic since the age of three. She has been having dizzy spells where she says she feels nauseous and like she's going to pass out about once a day around dinner time. Does not correlate with blood sugars but her blood pressure drops to around 94/72 with a heart rate of 122. Could this be related to Prozac that she's been on for years?
From this study (3 weeks ago):
My doctor had me try 1/2 tab of the Micardis HCT and 2 of the Carvedilol but this only made my BP go too high.
From this study (1 month ago):
I have been on all 3 drugs for 2-3 years. In the last month I develop severe headaches every day. My Bp is 88/52.
