The fact is that these drugs liike amlodipine and many calcium channel blockers produce gum swellings. These are called drug induced gingival enlargments. In such conditions its better to change these drugs. Hence once again get confirmed with your dentist, the reason for stopping drugs. If gum swellings are present, its a good advice to change your drug sir.

Can losartan 50 mg be substituted from amlogard 5 mg as both have same function. As both are used to low the blood pressure.

Do not substitute or change any medications without the consent of the doctor who is treating the patient. If needed you can discuss about your doubts to the doctor who can help you understand the situation. The doctor tries to give what suits the individual patient and asks you to come for review regularly ( personal examniantion ) so that the present prescription is based on clinical and other findings.

Amlip is amlodepin use to treat high blood pressure. Metformin is for diabetes or high sugars. How can they substitute each other? They are completely two different medicines for two different problems.

You can do the following-- stop smoking (if you smoke). Smoking lowers your hdl, (“good”) cholesterol level. Change the way you eat. Low-fat, low-cholesterol eating benefits all your lipid levels. Lose weight if necessary. Maintain healthy lifestyle start exercising. Nuts, such as almonds, pistachios, and walnuts, contain high amounts of unsaturated fat or “good” fats, which increase high-density lipoprotein (hdl) and lower low-density lipoprotein (ldl). Also follow this 1. Don't take tea empty stomach. Eat something like a banana (if you are not diabetic) or any seasonal fruit or soaked almonds and a glass of water first thing in the morning (within 10 mins of waking up). No only biscuits or rusk will not do. 2. Don't overeat 3. Take your breakfast every day. Don't skip it. U can eat whatever your mother or grandparent eat in bfast. I mean to say whatever is your traditional food. If punjabi eat paratha, if belongs to south then take idli/ dosa etc. 4. Have light meals every 2 hours (in addition to your breakfast, lunch n dinner) e.g. Nariyal paani, chaach, a handful of dry fruits, a handful of peanuts, any fresh n seasonal fruit, a cup of curd/milk etc 5. Finish your dinner at least 2 hours before going to sleep. 6. Maintain active life style 7. Avoid fast foods, spicy n fried foods, carbonated beverages 8. Take a lot of green vegetables n fruit. 9. Drink lot of water. 10. Everyday preferably sleep on same time 11. Curd is good for u.Exercise in the form of yoga, cycling, swimming, gym, walking etc. Now about point no. You should join a gym for weight training. Do it 2-3 times a week with at least 48 hours in between 2 sessions. Other days you can do cardio exercises. For more details you can consult me.
