My mom age 51 years is suffering from diastolic dysfunction stage 2. Doctor gave her telmikind 40 mg in morning and amtas-AT 25 in evening for high bp. But after taking amtas she feels like vomiting and dizziness. Doctor then stopped amtas. But now after telmikind her bp is still 150/90. Now doctor suggest to take amlong 2.5 mg in evening along with telmikind in morning. I want to ask is it safe to take amlong 2.5 mg as she is suffering from diastolic dysfunction stage 2. Will it increase heartbeat? She is taking cordarone 300 mg. Should we start amlong 2.5 mg?

Hi Yes amlong (amlodepine) is good drug in diastolic dysfunction. The side effects like vomiting and dizziness maybe due to added AT in amtas combination which your mom took Try amlong and if she is still having prob then ask your doctor to give some diuretics for some time and use other BP medication to bring down BP to 120/80 range Then she will feel better.

stop all milk products in her diet. Take guggal tikta kshsyam, 2 tsf three times a day before meals in halfa glass of luke warm water. Take chandraprabha vati, 3 tabs twice a day after meals with chitrakasava, 3 tsf in half a glass of luke warm water after food. Avoid sleeping during the day time. Advise her ksheera bala 101 oil capsules, 2 caps, twice a day after meals, with luke warm water. Do some hot fomentation over the affected shoulder. Continue the regime for 2 months. Discontinue the guggal tikta kshsyam, for 1 to 2 days in a week. Yoga and light exercises too are recommended.

I am in Bangalore, and my mom has a sickness (blood pressure and other common sicknesses) but she is in Afghanistan, is there a way to bring a copy of her check up to write her medicine? Or how can you advise me? For, she can not come here. Looking for an answer regards.

The best practical way would be for her to get her health reviewed there. That's because we have to allow the doctor to check her and decide what to prescribe. Later you can send the generic medicine from here if needed.

I get frequent anxiety episodes, due to any smallest reason resultenting to bp and headaches. Please advice. What to do?

Everybody has tensions and stress. What is important is how you perceive the stress and react to it. Counselling helps to modify your perceptions to situations which make you anxious. 1. See the problem in small bits and pieces and try to solve each piece separately. Don't look at the problem as a whole because it can be very overwhelming and scary. See, which parts you can solve on your own and where you can take help from others. Do you need to learn an extra skill to be able to solve a particular part of the problem? then learn that skill. For eg. If you get anxious about your finances and don't know how to manage it well enough to cover you for the future, then take help of friends, experts who know the subject well. Also you can learn yourself some ways to manage your funds better. You can take classes or go on the net to educate yourself etc. 2. Everybody makes mistakes and nobody is perfect. Make room for mistakes and errors. This way you will learn from your errors and help in making better judgement next time. 3. Take external help: you need not take all the pressure. Delegate jobs to people who have the time and the knowledge to do it. It's important to network and have a sound support system of friends, colleagues, relatives, professionals, who can pitch in at the time of need. 4. Prioritise: learn to prioritise tasks and identify which are not important and do less of those. This way you will have more time on your hands to attend to what is more important. 5. Organise and plan: try to foresee the future and predict what can happen and then have a plan. If one plan fails, then have a backup plan. Successful people usually think through their problems from different angles and come up with different solutions if one doesn't work out. 6. Be flexible: be alert and notice if things are not working out the way you had wanted. Be ready to make last minute changes to your plan. It doesn't mean that you had made a mistake, it just means that some things are beyond your control and these things may not happen as you had predicted. You are willing to modify. 7. Have hope and faith: that's the most important aspect. Have hope that things will work out well. If not now. Maybe later. Have faith in your own strengths and other people. Trust god and leave it to him. If it has to happen it will one day. Meanwhile, tell yourself that you did your best. If things don't work out, then don't be hard on yourself and others. There's always another day. Cheers.
