RE: Feeling BAd
I feel for ya'. I'm allergic to ACE inhibitors so I have been prescribed a combination of Hydralazine and Clonidine. Their side effects almost make you prefer a "vapor lock" to the side effects they produce. Nausea is one of the more common side effects of Hydralazine.

Here is a link to its side effects:

I hope you start feeling better big guy!

I cannot say anything reliably without seeing your charts, but I would suggest that if you look at alternatives for systolic control, such as lisitril or other possible methods. Hydralizine can have some uncomfortable side effects and needs a beta-blocker to make it a bit more comfortable.

Have the Beta blocker: Metoprolol Tartrate, 25 mg T.I.D.
Also have an ACE inhibitor: Enalapril 20 mg B.I.D.
Plus: Lasix and Norvasc.

I have been on the same regimen for some years: the hydalazine was a recent addition. Tried Catapress -- no joy.

Norvasc has long been my heavy hitter. My systolic may be up since I developed a flow murmur from the aortic valve.

Yes, my GP is my quarterback. I route all info through him. He is my only prescriber. Whenever I see a physician, I come in with my meds list, my allergies, my conditions, and a list of all physicians who attend to me.

Okay, bring this to your quarterback, see if there is a way around this. In the meantime, bananas are not the worst idea in the world, so make like a Minion, and B-A-N-A-N-A-A-A-A-Aaaaaaaaaa

In case you didn't see my other post on the B12 post, metoprolol will or can affect your vit d (hopefully you are taking vit d3; can't remember what or if you posted that in the other thread)

Yes, I take 2000 units of D3 per day. Yet, I remain deficient at 19 ng/ml. It was suggested by a friend that I take fermented cod liver oil.

I don't know about the fermented cod liver oil but you can't stop taking metoprolol and that is going to reduce your vitamin D or can reduce your vitamin D

how much vitamin d3 do you take per day

yes, I must continue the metoprolol as it lowers my heart rate; and controls V-tach that sometimes comes in triplets.

Hydrazine - the real nasty stuff they use to power the emergency power unit on the F-16. If there was a hydrazine leak on the flight line it would clear half the line.

I have been told by several docs and nutritionists, that potato skins actually have more potassium than bananas. And you can put all sorts of good stuff on them - like cheese, bacon, chives, bacon, sour cream, bacon... Banana for breakfast and skins for dinner. There is a good video on how to peel a banana. You actually do it from the bottom like monkeys do. It actually works quite well.

Raw potato skins, yes, cooked, not so much. And there are a lot of other reasons to avoid potato skins, or potatoes, and you listed a few - CALORIES in all the extras you put on it.
