I had a colonoscopy on Aug. 05 and took the Suprep kid the day before. My BP is normally around 120/72 and the highest it got while at the surgery center doing the procedure was 147/93. The following Sat. morning my head woke me up like it was exploding.....it got better but kept feeling like it was throbbing but not bad. Finally on Thursday I decided I needed to get my husbands bp machine and check it. To my surprise it was 174/102!! Long story short I went to the Ed and they gave me some meds and got it down. I'm scheduled for sonars this Thursday but after doing some research I have discovered that others have experienced extremely high bp after their colonoscopy. Is this prep possibly the reason for my high bp??
I am a male who will be joining the seniors battalion in October. Like many in that age group, I am plagued with some common ailments. I have mild blood pressure, and moderate to sometimes very painful pinched nerve. I am taking Olmetec 20mg every morning to control my blood pressure. I am also taking Gabapentin 300 mg at noon and night to alleviate my back pain. According to the Spinal cord specialist, I need to increase my intake to 3 times a day. I am thinking of taking the 3rd one in the morning together with the Olmetec. I did consult my local pharmacist who said there is no problem. Is it okay or is there a negative effect to taking them together?

I have been on gabapentin for about a year. Recently I tried to taper off and experienced terrible hives. My Dr. has insisted it is not related to the drug but they begin to dissipate when I take a dose. Has anyone else had this experience?
