Ziac review

Ziac is in the family of medications known as beta blockers. It is commonly prescribed for patients with hypertension, high heart rates, angina, and those who have recently suffered a heart attack. It can be prescribed in its generic form, hydrochlorothiazide and bisoprolol. Ziac is a mixed medication, part diuretic and part blood pressure reducer. The diuretic decreases edema by increasing the salt lost in urine, providing more balance between the salt and water ratio.

Ziac should be taken as early as possible to reduce the chronic need to urinate frequently throughout the night.

Not all patients will respond well to Ziac. Some patients with particular medical problems may require additional testing or special dosing, or may simply require an alternative medication. Patients with kidney disease, asthma, liver disease, heart conditions like low blood pressure, heart block, pace makers, heart failure, gout, diabetes, collagen vascular diseases such as lupus, circulatory diseases, pancreatitis, or thyroid disease might need special care or an alternative medication.

Ziac had been granted a pregnancy risk category C by the American Food and Drug Administration, which means that it has not yet been determined whether or not this medication will cause harm to a developing fetus. Ziac does excrete through the mother’s breast milk and can cause harm to a nursing baby.

A missed dose of medication can be taken when remembered as long as there is ample time between doses. If not, the missed dose should be skipped and the dosing should continue with the next regular dose. Taking too much medication can cause an overdose, thus double dosing is highly discouraged.

An overdose requires prompt, urgent medical care. Symptoms such as wheezing, shortness of breath, fainting, irregular heart rate, confusion, seizures, coma, and death, can all indicate an overdose.

Side effects are common and are usually not considered to cause medical issues. Regular side effects should be discussed with the prescribing physician. Unusual headaches, fatigue, dizziness, tingling and numbness of the hands, feet, or extremities, nausea, decrease in appetite, muscle weakness, cramping, depression, nightmares, weak pulse, sensitivity to light, excessive urination, increased hunger, increased thirst, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, gas, or constipation are quite common when taking Ziac.

Some side effects, such as allergic reactions (hives, difficulty breathing, facial swelling, swelling of the throat or tongue) jaundice, confusion, abnormal bleeding or bruising, slow heart rate, irregular heart rate, chest pain, sudden weight gain, swelling of the ankles, legs, and feet, cold of blue hands and feet, and a rash or unusual fatigue all require immediate medical intervention and can me life threatening.

Patients should never take any medication without the consent of the prescribing physician, Herbal remedies, vitamin supplements, over the counter medications, and prescription medications can all cause drug interactions. Cholestyramine and NSAID pain relievers are examples of medications know to cause interactions with Ziac. Lithium, oral diabetes medication, and other medications that may lower blood pressure either intentionally or as a side effect may cause serious health complications if taken with Ziac.
