The Card. DR. has asked me to move this med. to 80mg. My regular Dr. as well as myself feel this is above the safety line. I am also on 200mg.celebrex twice a day, 20mg. rabeprazole,81mg. asprin for sore knee. and to stop upset stomach. also 5mg.finasteride for prostrate prevention. And the Card. Dr. has added 4mg. each day for blood preasure. I have not had any problem ever with this ??? And now it has my level up a few points ?? I intend not to increase the crestor, stay at 40 mg. per day take all others and do question to drop the 4mg.coversyl. I also take fish oil,vitamens senior and 500/400 mg. glucosamine chondroitine each day. WHAT DO YOU FEEL as to these taken each day ??? please advise. THANK YOU .
Hi, it is not recommended to us Crestor above 40mg, check out this link
Some physicians will try to push the boundaries and sometimes it pays off...
For example, i take Citalopram 60mg and the max dose is supposed to be 40mg. Discuss you concerns with the doctor that wants to raise the dosage.
As we get older our blood pressures tend to rise. It is to your advantage to keep it low. They also keep it extra low in some conditions, to provide less work to the heart. What is your blood pressure? The fact that you take celebrex may make the blood pressure med work less, causing you to need a higher dose. Other then the fact that you need blood work for liver and kidney function every 6 mos or so, just to be sure they're ok, the combination of drugs you take won't cause trouble.
