Benicar

Risk associated with using Benicar if you are hypotensive.

Hi, I'm new to the forum and I want to start on the MP for my autoimmune disorder. However, I have been experiencing hypotension and a slow pulse recently, as low as 50 beats a minute at times, accompanied by breathlessness, fatigue and arrhythmia. I am concerned about using Benicar as it is used for hypertension. Will the treatment still be effective if I am taking pulsed antibiotics without using Benicar. Also, I am from Melbourne, Australia and I am interested to know what the names of the drugs used in the MP are called in Australia. I looked up Benicar on the MyDr.com and it wasn't listed. If anyone knows a doctor in Melbourne who is willing to administer the MP, please let me know.

Benicar is fundamental to MP, the antibiotics by themselves will achieve nothing, and you will need to spend more time reading through the information at http://www.mpkb.org, it takes a while to digest it all but it is important to understand the fundamentals of the protocol before launching into it, i.e. the role of vitamin D, the basic mechanism olmesartan has on the VDR and the immune system, and the stages of recovery.  It is a treatment in which you will have to play a very active role.

To find a doctor, go here:

Benicar is a brand name for olmesartan, it may be marketed under another name in Australia.

This page talks about hypotension:

http://mpkb.org/home/symptoms/hormonal/blood_pressure

My blood pressure got as low as 75/35 for a while, it was not easy to live with but it is part of the recovery process.  My resting pulse was 44 before I got sick.

Thank you for the advice and useful links. I am new and I have a lot to learn. I read about the protocol and I have seen Professor Marshall's videos some time ago and he makes a lot of sense. Back in 1998 or 1999 I tested positive for Mycoplasma, Cytomegalovirus (CMV) and Epstein Barr Virus and possibly other pathogens which I can't recall. I worked at an infectious diseases hospital for two and a half years and I suspect I picked up a few bugs there. Now that my health has deteriorated I am desperate to restore my health and to find a doctor who is willing to treat me using the MP. I do at times feel very dizzy with low blood pressure, so I hope I will be ok on olmesartan / Benicar as I have a responsible job and I can't take much time off work.

Just be very careful getting up.  Maybe plan on holding on to something for a few seconds after getting up.  I had low blood pressure most of my life, and by the time I started the MP, it had risen to normal levels.  On the MP, it went right back to my normal low values.  After a little over 3 years on MP, I still occasionally get light headed when standing, so it just becomes a way of life on the MP to be very careful.  Cynthia

Thanks for the advice Cynthia, I appreciate it. It's reassuring to know other people have similar problems and have largely overcome it.
