Such as chest pains, fatigue, or any blood clots ever seen?
Dear Angie: I wish that I could give a simple, direct answer to the question as you have put it. But, this is very hard to do. A person's age, other medications, other diagnosed problems, what is the mg. of medication... there is always a 'synergystic' action with whatever we take into our bodies. Simply put, everything acts with everything else. You may be able to eat two different foods alone, but not together. Age plays a role as our metabolism, the ability to 'work with' meds, food, the handling of stress, all this changes as we get older. Twenty years on one medication is a fairly lengthy time. Looking at diabetes, for example, shows that medication does help(can mean life/death depending on type of diabetes)yet, problems will sometimes develop as one gets older, most often brought about by the diabetes itself. Your body may be changing in how it handles your medication, something that you should immediately discuss with a physician.
From what information you have given, the last suggestion is the most important. Please do not wait. I hope, at the very least, this provides you with some direction. DOWTONg
