Hello, Thanks for the query. I have seen the details given. I learn that you have Hypothyroidism and hypertension. But there is absolutely no mention of necessary details like T4, T3 & TSH levels, BP readings, dosage of Levothyroxine being taken and also dosage of other drugs taken. Without any of these details, it is difficult to give any opinion. In pregnancy first choice drug for hypertension is Methyledopa, then Labetolo and Nifedipine. Olmesartan is contraindicated. Plus if you want to conceive, then TSH should be maintained < 2.5 mU/L. If you have any questions please do come back. Thanks.

Is anobliss cream containing 1.5% lidocaine and 0.3% nifedipine? Is it safe for long term use of 4 months.

Every medicine which has an effect, it also has side effects. So please avoid self treatment and visit your Proctologist for fresh diagnosis and prescription.

It is generally not used as first line of treatment. Hypertension at 22 years also needs detailed investigations to find out secondary etiologies if not done you should have creatinine, electrolytes, usg abdomen with renal doppler done. Also get bp checked in both arms and legs. You can start taking telmisaratan with chlorthalidone 40/6.25 once a day and increase to 80 mg if necessary.

Do not go for any modern surgery for Piles, after surgery your anus size can grow unnaturally, after that you can not hold or control your stool pass-out, Kshara Sutra Therapy is a unique ancient technique, which is proved to be an effective treatment of anorectal disorders.

Hi, this particular medicine is given for high bp-blood pressure. This swelling may be the result of high bp. If bp is well managed, there is nothing to worry, both mother and baby will be safe. But you need to follow all the advise of your doctor, including timely medication, rest and investigations.

I’m 5 weeks pregnant. Before I found out I was pregnant I used to take my blood pressure medication on empty stomach first thing in the morning. Now I’m pregnant can I still take it at that time on an empty stomach? The drugs I take are methyldopa 250 mg and nifedipine 20 mg.

Yes you can take blood pressure medicines empty stomach, but do not take both medicines at the same time. If you are taking methyl dopa twice daily then take nifidipine at mid noon.
