I have been taking Atenolol daily for the past few years at 25mg. Having a consistent blood pressure reading at or near 140 over 85+, my physician suggested doubling the daily dosage of this same medication. What would be a reasonable time period in which I may begin to see improved (if any) results?
With respect to having hypothyroidism for the past 30 years, I recently consulted with an endocrinologist who suggested I begin taking Synthroid vs. Levothyroxine. Also it was prescribed that I take a certain dosage of Synthroid certain days of the week and another dosage the other days of the week. Is this a reasonable approach to take? Can I ever expect to take just one dosage all the time in the foreseeable future?View Thread
