Combination Of Heart Drugs And Cholesterol?
at noon doctor…I want to ask is it true that simvastatin should not be taken at the same time as amlodipine?. Should simvastatin and amlodipine be taken at night? I need to add that in the morning my husband takes irbesartan 300 and in the afternoon clopidogrel75 and bisoprolol 2.5. and at night simvastatin10 and amlodipine10. Please doctor please answer it. Thank you
Consumption of simvastatin may be taken together with amlodipine, as long as the dose of simvastatin is not more than 20 mg, simvastatin doses greater than 20 mg and also taking amlodipine together will have the potential to cause muscle damage due to the interaction of the two drugs.
Actually, simvastatin does not have to be taken at night, but the effect of simvastatin is maximized when taken at night. Whether or not to take the medicines you mention depends on your husband's current condition.
The drugs mentioned are high blood pressure medications, heart medications, and cholesterol medications. The use and dosage may change depending on the development of your husband's medical condition, if there is a worsening or lack of response, large doses or adding other types of drugs will be considered or even replacing them, whereas if the situation is well controlled, low doses may be considered. Well, to find out, of course, the doctor needs to carry out a series of examinations starting from an interview regarding your husband's complaints or symptoms, a basic physical examination in the form of blood pressure, pulse frequency, heart sounds, follow-up examinations such as heart records or imaging tests (imaging). So your husband should be persuaded to want to go back to the doctor for control so that further evaluation of his health condition can be carried out.
Medicines do help in maintaining cholesterol and blood pressure levels, but wouldn't it be better if you change a healthier lifestyle by exercising regularly and also limiting the intake of oily and fatty foods.
