Question
Posted by: CC | 2010/11/18

Can I use this together?

Dear Doc
I am 43 years old, 21 weeks pregnant. I am on the following tablets: .1 Eltroxin + .05 Eltroxin daily, and 1 Inderal LA 160mg daily and my preggie vitamins.

My gynae checked my blood pressure (which was always normal) and said it is too high. She prescribed 3 x a day 500mg Hy-po-tone tablet. For the next 2 days and I must get my blood pressure taken with her today again.

The last 2 days I felt as if ALL my blood has been taken out of my body, I am more than usual very very tired (could not even get my arms above my head to wash my hair last night!).

I read the specifications of the tablets on the internet last night and noted that they say the dosis for the first 2 days is 250mg Hy-po-tone 3 x a day! Did my gynae overdose me????? Can this harm my baby????

Please help.
Thanks
