Lee (2 years ago):

In April 2012 and again on Oct. 24th, 2012, I had revisions on my hips - both are artificial. While in the hospital the drugs made my bp so low that they told me not to take my bp meds until it started to go up. I was taking 5/320mg or exforge (a combination drug). After my anxiety came back with a vengence, my doctor switched my pb med to procardia and later added diovan 80mg. After this lates hip surgery, again my bp was low and recently started taking the procardia - my tickle cough is coming back, the anxiety is starting again and heart flutters when I wake up in the morning with a start. Could this be due to the procardia. According to my drug book, which I don't look at when given a med because I don't want to be influenced about side effects before they (if they) begin. I had some side effects on exforge, but not like this. The anxiety and tickle cough and heart flutter really bother me - just started today after being back on the med for 5 days. Am I nuts?
