From this study (1 week ago):
Itching just started after they substituted generic for micardis
From this study (3 weeks ago):
1 year after cancer of the bladder required a neo bladder operation, I was diagnosed with high eye pressure leading to glaucoma. Since the bladder op I have been taking 1.6g of Sodium Bicarbonate per day as a urinary alkalinizer. Is it possible that the sodium bicarbonate is causing the higher eye pressure.
For example, Azopt drops state that bicarbonate is requied for the production of the eye fluid. Azopt drops have brinzolamide that inhibits the action of carbonic anhydrase and thereby decreases the production of bicarbonate.

Just shows you. You cannot trust computers. I was asking about high EYE pressure maybe caused by sodium bicarbonate, not blood pressure. Wpuld a living person please respond.?
