Atenolol VS Enalapril Maleate?
I had 25mg of Atenolol for around 4 year.
Utill recently I have some heart racing during office our(Sitting).
Then then doctor change the medicine to Enalapril Maleate(Renitec).
Taken for around 2 weeks.
I read that Enalapril Maleate(5mg) may cause RENAL will Atenolol do so.

25mg of Atenolol VS Enalapril Maleate(5mg) which one is better if consider side effect and safe for prolong use?

  I'm assuming you are on these drugs for high blood pressure.

Both drugs have a strong evidence base supporting their use as blood pressure lowering agents and many years of wider clinical experience. Recently however, a trial called ASCOT suggested that a blood pressure lowering regimen based on an ACE inhibitor (like enalapril) was more effective in reducing the risk of some cardiovascular complications long term (mainly stroke).

ACE inhibitors are the BP lowering treatment of choice in some groups, including diabetics and those at high cardiovascular risk. Beta-blockers still have a role and any patients already on beta-blockers, whos BP is now well controlled should probably stay on them since BP control is the optimal goal.

ACE inhibitors are very well tolerated drugs. Approximately 10% of patients will develop a troublesome dry cough and around 20% may have a temporary reduction in renal function (kidney function) which is often transient and simply requires close monitoring. There is a huge evidence base supporting the use of ACE inhibitors for BP and other cardiovascular conditions.

I hope this helps....

Can taking the otc medication Chlorpheniramine maleate (Antihistamine) make you sweaty at times?
I have been taking the Antihistamine Chlorpheniramine maleate for 4 days because of a sinus headache and all of a sudden I will start getting really hot and sometimes lightly perspire. Is this to be expected from Chlorpheniramine maleate? Thanks.

  Hey, look on the packing it came in, or if you dont have that, look on the bottle, if its in one. It might tell you. i looked it up and got this in the info for side effects....

"Avoid becoming overheated or dehydrated during exercise and in hot weather. Chlorpheniramine can decrease perspiration and you may be more prone to heat stroke."

So uh, you should stop taking it, my friend. Take a different kind. Also, you may want to see your doctor and ask about it.

Is it bad to take Antidepressants and Antihistamines together? Example: Zoloft and Chlorpheniramine Maleate.?
I have been taking 50mg of Zoloft. At night I take 8mg of Maleate for sleep and minor allergies. Is that ok?

  It is double the normal dose of Chlorphenamine, you should be taking 4mg.
You could try Diphenhydramine 50mg at bedtime and take your Zoloft in the morning.

Is Pheniramine Maleate available in New York? What is its brand name there?
I have Urticaria.As a self medication attempt I want some advice.My Indian doctor has suggested Avil (Pheniramine Maleate). I think it is not available here in New York now what should I do? and can it be available without medical prescription?

  Pheniramine Maleate is available in many over the counter products in the United States. Most of the time it is found in cough and cold products as well as eye drops. With the cough and cold products however, they contain other active ingredients, so I do not recommend that you take them on a regular basis.

Avil is the brand name of Pheniramine Maleate and is only available by a prescription in the United States. It can be purchased online from pharmacies such as CVS Care Mark (if not available in your area) but you must have a valid prescription from a doctor to purchase the medication.

Over The Counter Name brands that includes Pheniramine Maleate as an active ingredient are:
EYE DROPS:
Visine Antihistamine And Redness Relief Eye Drops
Walgreens Eye Allergy Relief
Naphcon A Allergy Relief Eye Drops
Rite Aid Allergy Relief Eye Drops
Opcon A Itching And Redness Reliever Eye Drops
Opcon A Eye Allergy Relief

COUGH AND COLD PRODUCTS:
TheraFlu Flu And Sore Throat Packets Natural Apple Cinnamon Flavor
Walgreens WalFlu Night Time Severe Cold Lemon Flavor Packets
TheraFlu Sinus And Cold Lemon Flavor Packets
Walgreens WalFlu Flu And Sore Throat Applie Cinnamon Flavor Packets

  well first off. all those products you mention will only treat the symptoms___there is NO cure for the common cold. staying away from large groups of people and diligently washing your hands around infectious people are good ways to stop yourself from getting it. lots of sleep and lots of fluids are the only things that help me. be careful if your like me and a lot of others--dont take any cold medication that has any ingredient with the words ephedrine or ephrine; lots of folks get high blood pressure , heart palpitations, anxiety attacks, restlessness, and hypersensitivity from it, and its used in a LOT of cold medications.

  I am Dr Sonia . I am an ENT Specialist [Specialist in diseases of the Ear ,Nose ,Throat and Head and Neck Surgery] practising in Bangalore ,India.
Diphenhydramine and Chlorpheniramine are both first generation antihistmines. They are not the same drug but belong to the same category of medicines.
Diphenhydramine is a component of the popular Benadryl available over the counter and chlorpheniramine is present in many cold and cough remedies such as piriton.

It is not a good idea to combine both the medications unless recommended by your doctor.

  In smaller doses I have seen prochlorperazine used as an antiemetic (to prevent nausea). It is a dopamine blocker so it may reduce the nausea and dizziness you feel with your infection. It is definitely not an antibiotic to clear up infections though.

You shouldn't drink with this drug because it is really hard on the liver. When people are on it long term them will monitor for liver damage. In the small dose you are probably taking liver damage should not be an issue. That is unless you drink. Alcohol even in small doses puts your liver into overdrive putting even more strain on it than the prochlorperazine alone. Also the alcohol will slow the livers ability to breakdown the prochlorperazine and cause it to build up to toxic levels in the body. So for the sake of your liver don't drink!

I was given this and 3 others pills (cap olit 20mg, strocain, hyomide) for a stomach pain. Never used these before and could not find info online (google - but most pointed to MIMS, which was restricted to medical professional).

Olit, that sounds like the generic version of Prilosec:

Strocain is a brand name for Oxethazaine. Here's website with info on it:

Hypmide, I couldn't find any info on this, are you sure you didn't misspelled ? Maybe it is Hyomide ?
If it is Hyomide here's the info on it:
Hyoscine butylbromide. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Butylscopolamine

All of your medications are consistent with treating the symptoms of stomach pain or ulcer. I hope you feel better soon. Good luck.
