- Up to two degree decrease in body temperature makes plasma donation an impossibility unless i drink 40 ozs of very not water. any suggestion?
I've been donating plasma twice a week for over six years. Unfortunately the plasma center no longer allows a beta blocker, so I've been switched to an ACE inhibitor, Losartan 50 mg. This affects my body temperature, dropping it to 96 degrees and I cannot donate unless I chart at 97 degrees. I'm forced to drink piping hot water prior to donating in order to be within range. Is there an alternate solution, or would an Rx for Lisinopril be preferred. My research for the latter shows no one reporting hypothermia from Lisinopril. Thanks in advance.
- How many/what percentage of older males who have had a stroke, have another while taking uloric?
Concerned as my Rheumatologist wants me to start using Uloric40 mg and while I see that their is a relatively small incidence of stroke occurring (unless you are part of the "small" group); I have been unable to locate statistics for those previous stroke patients that are now using or have used Uloric, and had another stroke.

- Losartan potassium headaches (1 response)
I avoided going to the doctor for years and decided it was time to bite the bullet. The bullet bit back. High Blood pressure and cholesterol. Doc prescribed me 100mg Losartan Potassium right out of the gate. At 33 years old, this concerns me. I've been on it for about a week and have had a constant moderate headache along with some slight dizziness/foggy feeling. I also noticed some ringing in my ears a few times as well. Going back to the doc today. My pharmacist says they usually start people on lower doses than 100 mg. Anyone else dealing with something similar?
- High blood pressure - find the right medication (2 responses)
I was going through the menopause with all the usual drama when I started feeling awful. Doc said that my blood pressure was through the roof and prescribed Lisinopril. This gave me technicolour dreams and a runny nose, so he switched me to Losartan. This made me soooo tired that I didn't want to get up. So then I tried Amlopidine. Fantastic! I haven't felt this well since I was on my teens. My message is ... don't put up with side effects. Change your drug until you find the one that works for you.
