Pur Bloka 40

Hi Doctor,

I have a mild degree of anti social disorder and started taking Pur Bloka 40mg daily. This does wonders for me to maintain a positive lifestyle and be able to comfortably take part in important meetings with other people. In the past I used to duck and dive any meeting that might require me to do the talking but these days I am the one setting up the meetings!

My normal blood pressure was around 130/85 before I started with this medication and I am not sure what it is now but I dont experience any signs of low blood pressure.

I used to take two panados every night before I go to bed but since I am taking the pur bloka my headaches has also vanished.

I would like to know if there are any long term side effects if I drink one pur bloka every day? I am a 30 year old male.''

Thank you

The Pur Bloka is well tolerated and I am not aware of any long term side effects. Please remember that the Pur Bloka can have an effect on your exercise ability, as it slows the heart rate. Refer to the following information leaflet, in order to be well informed about possible side effects:

Hi, I was prescribed Pur Bloka for my orgasm headaches but I still get them, can there be a more serious problem perhaps?

My 6 year old is using Pur Bloka 40 a day 20 in the morning and 20 at night. He has been doing great. He has a cold at the moment so I wanted to know what can I give him that would stop his cough, he can''t use anything that may exsalerate his heart beat.
