Briem review

Briem is an angiotensin-covering enzyme (ACE) inhibitor that regulates a chemical in the body that tightens blood vessels, letting blood flow more smoothly and more easily. It can even help weak hearts pump blood more efficiently. These factors are what make Briem a popular prescription medication for high blood pressure, best known by it’s brand name Lotensin.

Note that Briem is very dangerous for fetuses. It can cause serious injury, malformation, and even death to unborn babies. Women beyond their third month of pregnancy should not take Briem. Any woman who becomes pregnant while taking this medication should immediately inform her doctor.

People with allergies to ACE inhibitors should not take this medication. Those who have high levels of potassium in their bodies or are currently taking potassium supplements should take this medication with caution, as Briem combined with these can lead to near-fatal levels of potassium. There are several other medicines that may interact with Briem and have severe results, such as Lithium, diuretics, and diabetes medication. Inform your doctor if you are taking any of these medications beforehand to ensure your safety.

Briem has been approved for use in patients 6 years old and up when the doctor sees it appropriate to use this medication.

Briem, taken orally, may be taken on an empty stomach and is usually taken one or two times a day. If your physician prescribes otherwise, however, you should follow their prescription. If a dose is missed, take it as soon as you remember, but do not take more than the prescribed amount at one time to compensate. In case of accidental overdose, seek immediate medical attention.

Avoid consuming alcohol while you are taking Briem, as it may emphasize the side effects. Make sure to inform your doctor beforehand if you are combining Briem with other type of medication to be certain that it will not be detrimental to your health. Do not perform any potentially dangerous tasks, such as driving, until you are sure of Briem’s effects on you. On occasion, the medication has been found to cause extreme sleepiness in patients.

As previously mentioned, avoid high-potassium foods. Your physician may prescribe a low salt or low sodium diet. If they do, follow the diet closely.

Briem is a fairly stable medication with side effects that are minimal and usually pass quickly. Among these side effects are headaches, drowsiness, persistent dry cough, and slight nausea. Unless these are severe, there is no need to worry. Do inform your doctor right away, however, if you experience fever, irregular heartbeat, hoarseness, swelling, fainting, and jaundice. These might be indicative of graver, more serious effects.

Have regular blood tests to make sure there are no adverse long-term effects. Also inform your doctor if you expect to have medical or dental surgery.

Briem must be stored at room temperature in a dry location in a tightly sealed container.
