  • From this study (5 days ago):

  • I have taken botox a week ago. After that my blood pressure raised. Although I was taking blood pressure pill before it did not affect anymore and my blood pressure raised to 150/100 sometimes 160/100. I am consulting my doctor right now to take multiple blood pressure pills in or to lower my blood pressure.

  • From this study (1 week ago):

  • Bystolic was effective in lowering my blood pressure. However, this drug has caused HORRIFIC problems for me. I have never had anything affect me so adversely. I believe that at first I was metabolizing it well, but after a couple of weeks I felt poisoned. It has been 5 months since I stopped taking it, and I believe I am finally coming out of it. I curse the day that I was foolish enough to ingest this substance.

    I had this happen to me all the time. I changed to taking my dosage of suboxone to once in the late morning lunch time period and once before I got to sleep. Taking it spread out during the day and near bedtime keeps your receptors sufficiently blocked all day and night so you don't start experiencing terrors at night due to withdrawal. Helped me tremendously and I can honestly say those night terrors I experienced during withdrawal and weaning periods were some of the most horrific experiences I have ever gone through in my entire life. One you start to wean off, cut down slivers each week or two -- take your time
