Hi, I'm waseem, 25 years old. I've hypertension for 4 years now. I've been using Enam 5 mg (Enalapril Maleate). But now I feel that the strength isn't enough, I keep wanting more. Should I go for 10 mg or any other alternative. Though many say that at this age I shouldn't have hypertension at all.

Hi waseem you seem to be too young to get hypertension. But it's not uncommon either. Whether you need to increase your dosage or not depends upon your bp level and not by your feeling weak or otherwise. Kindly get your bp checked and dose adjusted. You may have to reduce the dose also.

Causes: Diverticulitis is one of the most common causes. In many cases, persistent pain specific to the lower left side of the abdomen is caused by diverticulitis. ... When a pouch tears, swelling and infection can cause diverticulitis. Suggestion: Abdominal pain and discomfort. Gas in the intestine causes pain for some people. When it collects on the left side of the colon, the pain can be confused with heart disease. When it collects on the right side of the colon, the pain may feel like the pain associated with gallstones or appendicitis.

Take any antibiotics with doctors prescription only. Normal cold and flu are usually 90% viral, so do not require antibiotics.

The current dose is not enough. You can first try and increase the dose to 5 mg once a day, if after 3 days BP still remains high then you should consult your treating physician for make it twice daily or seeking an alternative medication. Also ensure lifestyle changes like daily exercise for 30 mins like risk walking, healthy and low salt diet.

My friends mother died recently. It all started early in the morning. She forgot to take her high BP tablet the night before. Early morning she started vomiting with severe headache, nausea and her lower body below vest was sort of paralysed. My friend gave her two 25 mg tablets Enam-25 and she was rushed to the nearby hospital. There ECG did not show any heart attack. Later they checked sugar, electrolyte, lipid profile. All reports were normal. An echo test was done showing normal valve functioning but 40% LV diastolic contraction. The heart specialist said it's with in the normal range but suggested that treatment be started. She was injected and a tablet was given. After taking tablet she vomited and then collapsed. Nothing worked out and she was declared dead. Now my friend is worried that was it a mistake to give two 25 mg tablets to control BP? Did that dose mislead the heart specialist? The doctors were informed that she had been given two tablets. Was one tablet enough and would that have given true information in echo test or ECG? Could anybody explain. Please tell.

Two tablets of enam 25 (enalapril) would not cause death of a patient- moreover, your friend's mother wasn't told to have low blood pressure when she reached the hospital. The sudden collapse that you have detailed was perhaps an episode of arrhythmia (irregular heart rate) - which causes sudden cardiac deaths. Its very difficult to come to terms with such a tragedy in life - but I can tell you only one thing out of my own experience - its never anybody's fault! she was in the hospital and still she died - make your friend accept this.
