Hello, thanks for the query. The tablet mentioned (both brands) is used to treat high blood pressure. Doctor must have prescribed it for high bp. So please do take it. It does not have any interaction with levothyroxine. Please remember thyroxine tablet needs to be taken on empty stomach early morning and nothing to be taken fro over 1 hour. Thanks.

Hi, you can stop olmesar and monitor bp for 6 weeks. If does not rise then continue without bp medicines. I think you donot need bp medicines if doing regular walking. But please monitor your bp for at least 6 weeks after stopping medicines.

Pantie prevents throat infection and further rheumatic damage to valves. Concor and pinom can delay heart muscle weakness that occurs with age, specially after mitral valve replacement. In your case repair was done, so more details are required for final opinion. Best wishes.

Yes it is safe to use these medicines in diabetic. But what is reason for swelling. If not investigated then get her tests done. With these medicines and in elderly keep checking her electrolytes periodically.

Every medicine some side effect is possible, your present medicine is quite safe. Can be continued as needed. Measure BP monthly, your Dr. will help you reduce medicines as BP becomes well controlled.
