Does Anyone Else Take Albuterol On Top Of The Other Meds? I Take Allegra, Brio, Generic Singiular Also

Does Anyone Else Take Albuterol On Top Of The Other Meds? I Take Allegra, Brio, Generic Singiular Also

I thot that if a person had to use the albuterol every day, the other meds weren't good enough. The doseage is every 4 hrs as needed, tho.

Blood Pressure Medication

Blood Pressure Medication

I have very high blood pressure. Without medication it averages 190/107. If I take my blood pressure medication as directed and my blood goes into the normal range my chest start hurting and develop an ectopic heart beat.

Does Anyone Have Auto-immune Issue Causing PH?

Does Anyone Have Auto-immune Issue Causing PH?

My diagnosis of PH was made because of the high pressure noted during a heart cath. So far the tests have all been normal except the RF and ANA.
While waiting (3 months!) For a rheumatology appointment, I thought maybe some one on this forum may have a similar auto-immune condition.

I actually never thought of that but willing to try!! Thank you
