I have high bp since 30 years. I was on tenoclor 100 losar 50 twice and amlodac 10 mg. Since last 3 months my evening bp was hovering around 170/90. My internist kept tenoclor 100 in tact but kept on replacing with olmesartan 40 thereafter telmisartan 80 mg. There was no improvement. Yesterday my internist put me on tenormin 100 losar 50 twicw amlodac 10 mg and lasilacyone 50. What is this lasilactone 50. Is it effective in bp control. I shall feel obliged by your valued guidance. Regards
ps. My internist tried to add arkamin 100 twice and then mimipress xl 5 mg but due yo dide effects he hss prescribed lasilactone.
I am sorry for the delay in replying you, I was away celebrating the 50th anniversary of leaving school with my school mates.
Lasilactone is an aldosterone antagonist which will help your body lose sodium, the accumulation of which increases BP. Some people are more sensitive to the effects of salt while others are not, the drug has been given to you in the hope that by losing sodium your BP will come down.
It would take a few days to show its full effect and hence please give it a try for a week at least. If it does not work we may have to increase the dose of tenormin, since your systolic BP is also high.
All the best, please keep me informed.
