Ramipril :: Palpitations, Difficulty Breathing

My wife was prescribed 10 milligrams/day dose of ramipril and nearly passed out in town, palpitations, difficulty breathing and pain in the chest. She was admitted to hospital with a view that she might have had a heart attack. They put a camera up her femoral artery but her heart was clear, no problems.

her blood pressure was 90 over 45. we stopped her taking the Ramipril and all her symptoms disappeared. It was as if the tablets were producing the palpitations and the chest pains which she was taking more and more tablets for.

Heart Rhythm :: Breathing Difficulty?

I have this problem of breathing normally which occurs sometimes a few weeks or as prevalent as 2 times a week. I will often feel better when lying down. Some of the symptoms include increase saliva and nausea. My appetite will also be gone. However I will not have this problem the next day.

I realized that this problem occurs when there is a great change in the temperature. For example when i am travelling from a country with a tropical climate to a colder country (around 10 degrees). This problem also occur sometimes after food (Etc. Eating hot and cold food). This problem strangely do not occur during the morning.

Respiratory Disorders :: Difficulty Breathing

I have had a terrible affliction for more than 3 months now and it is greatly affecting my life. I am 25 years old and in general have never had a
problem with my health or anything. I have lived in São Paulo, Brazil for 6 years which has very polluted air due to its large population and high altitude.
I am having difficulty breathing in general. It feels like I am not processing the air that I breathe. Here I am going to list all of the symptoms I am feeling:

-Exercise is walking at best. If I try to do anything more than this I become at risk for feeling irregular heart palpitations and become even more out of breath.

-There are moments when I feel a little better and worse throughout the day. It is completely random but I think it might also have to do with eating. The only time I feel ok is when I am sleeping and I just wake up. Usually I lie around for a bit because it's nice to forget about it. As soon as I get up the difficulty breathing starts. If I get up just to use the bathroom at night it takes a while to stabilize after I lie back down.

-I have a chest pain on my left side. is right in the left pectoralis major. This pain never goes away however it is constant so I have coped with it. The
pain is like the pain you have when you have gas. It is a sharp pain I cannot move the muscles on my left chest otherwise it will feel like I'm being stabbed.

-It is common for me to be sitting doing nothing and feel strange heart palpitations which cause me to have even more difficulty breathing

-When I feel the palpitations (which have been occurring less but the chest pain hasn't subsided) It seems that my heart is in my throat or that I am going to burp up my heart. When This happens I have to lie completely still and focus on not passing out. My limbs, stomach face all go numb and start tingling like when your leg falls asleep and it's waking up.I usually sleep on my right side because sleeping on my left side causes difficulty breathing.

-I can't stand in one place for very long otherwise I will have considerable difficulty breathing and start to slouch, however I can get by walking.

-Sitting up straight makes it harder to breath. Slouching has helped me to get by and breath more easily.

-Riding in any vehicle causes me to have considerable difficulty breathing. It feels like the bumps on the road cause me to not be able to breathe well.

-Anxiety does cause my symptoms to worsen and my breathing to become considerably harder but it is not the underlying cause. I cannot run away from the chest pain or difficulty breathing no matter how calm or relaxed I am.

I have done a few heart and lung exams:

*3 ECG/EKG- nothing
*3 chest X-rays- nothing
*1 chest tomography- nothing
*1 Echocardiogram- nothing
*1 24 hour holter- nothing( I wasn't even able to

sleep within the 24 hours at any moment because I had to hold my cat who had surgery and took the whole night to recover from the anesthesia. Worst night of my life both of us suffering and nothing I could do. I left my cat with my wife when she woke up and went straight to the lab to remove the holter device.)

*Spirometry- nothing
*Laryngoscopy- Septal deviation(I've always had)
Rhinitis, pharyngitis and laryngitis

-the only day in the past 4 months that I have felt normal is the night of and day after I did the spirometry and laryngoscopy exams. I took anesthesia
in both nostrils for the laryngoscopy and 2 sprays of an inhaler for the spirometry exam. I started doing some exercises on the following morning and all
the symptoms returned.

-I am beginning to have dizzy spells. I suddenly get overtaken by strong dizziness.

When I was between the ages of 10 and 16 I had taken all sorts of antipsychotic medicine such as Geodon, Abilify, Seroquel and others because I was considered overactive. I am do worry that this might have affected my anatomy at a growing phase in my life. I have suspected heart arrhythmia or asthma but the tests I listed above say otherwise.

Propranolol :: Lowered Blood Pressure But Breathing Issues

I suffer from anxiety and my doctor has prescribed 40mg of Propranolol to be taken once a day. He said it would reduce my heart rate as a side effect however said it would be fine as I naturally had a fast sinus rhythm. I do feel my heart rate has slowed however I feel like I'm not getting enough oxygen into my lungs and am gasping for my breath? Is this normal?

It's my second day and I feel weird. It says on the leaflet with the medicine that would should be weary if you're a smoker. I never smoked a lot probably 5-6 rollies a day. My doctor never mentioned my smoking so I have just stopped. I don't know whether that would make a difference?

I am feeling drowsy and my vision is hazy. Is this something that wears off? I'm worried as I'm back to work Monday and cannot be going in all over the place.

Propranolol Vs. Anxiety Vs. Blood Pressure

My doctor gave me 10 mg of propranolol for anxiety and she said it was ok to take with my bp. My bp ranges from 95/70 to sometimes 102/70 when my anxiety gets up. My pulse is usually around 75 resting and once I get up and my heart palpitations are bothering me at 75 beats per minute and I feel like I need to get up and move around which is like an akathisia feeling, my heart rate will go over 100, usually 104 -110 when I have to get up and walk around. Should I take 5mg or 2.5 mg just to see how it does since my bp can run low and my resting heart rate is 95/75 - 90/70? I have the sweaty palms and headache also during these times. My Paxil is not working anymore and it's causing this anxiety.

Anxiety :: Coming Off Propranolol - By Cutting The Tablet?

I have been on 10mg PROPRANOLOL for a few years for anxiety attacks which would last 4 days of continuous sickness and sweating, also heart palpitations.

I have managed to control this over the past 2 years and very rarely get panic attacks , if i do the sickness and palpitations last a day.

I was taking this medication twice a day, however the beginning of last year i weaned myself down to one tablet a day (10mg) and then eventually stopped taking my tablets all together. i then became very anxious and had to reverse back to 0ne tablet daily. This is with the odd attack.

A year later and having no attacks i would like to try again and wean myself of completely but scared i will revert back to being sick an anxious again. However putting that to one side and thinking positive i would like to stop them.

Can i cut the tablets with a drug cutter and reduce the amount to 5 mg daily and stop.

Anxiety Increased :: Reaction Between Citalopram And Propranolol

I took the plunge and took the tablets 40mls a day twice a day for around 3 weeks, then due to side effects, reduced to 10 mls twice a day.  

My constant panic attacks are not there anymore, just now and again.  I found that the tablets must of interacted with the citalopram 10mls as I felt really alert of them and couldn't sleep, general anxiety symptoms were increased.  Since reducing I am able sleep, my pulse rate is still up, but not as bad as before.

Anxiety :: Propranolol - Consult Doctor If You Start Or Quit Smoking?

I was wondering if anyone has even been on propranolol 40mg once a day for anxiety and stopped smoking and if so did you feel fine!

I want to stop smoking but on the leaflet it says consult your doc if u start or stop smoking.

I did ask my gp but he dismissed the leaflet and just said stop smoking - I kinda didn't trust his answer.
