Re : bp drugs that are compatible with nursing

I had good results with Inderal (Propanolol) while breastfeeding. I really liked that it came in a long acting pill--so I only had to remember one pill a day. Before I switched to that, I kept forgetting my afternoon dose of Labetalol and my pressures were still fluctuating.

Re : Mild or Severe preeclampsia??

<t>It took me a year to work up the courage to ask my OB/GYN how seriously I'd been sick. At my annual exam I asked him, "How would you classify it? Moderate?" I was fishing. His answer was, "Uh, no that was pretty significant." It wasn't the answer I wanted, but it's what I really knew all along. Y...

Re : When do we get better after delivery???

<t>It took me seven months to wean off blood pressure meds completely. After 6 weeks my BP readings were still high and my OB/GYN referred me to my family physician. He said it was possible that I would continue having hypertension issues--perhaps they were underlying before I got pregnant. My famil...

Re : After effects of Mag

<t>Are you taking a beta blocker? I had muscle pain and weakness in my legs as long as I was on the labetalol. I mentioned it to my family doctor during an appointment to deal with my BP and he said it's a side effect of beta blockers. He explained that they work by lowering your BP by changing the ...

Newbie Introduction--Very Long Story

<t>Hi. My name is Michelle and I have a DS who was born at 37w2d in June 2006. I wanted a med-free, intervention-free birth experience and during my second trimester I actually switched to an OB/GYN who was interested in supporting my natural childbirth decisions. It turned out that I chose the righ...

<t>Lisa,<br/> <br/> I'm in a similar situation and I'm gathering information. I have a 13-month old son and I'm not ready yet to TTC, but I have an annual pap with my OB/GYN in two weeks and I'd like to ask for a referral. I also have my one year neurology followup next week (I had neuro problems du...
