Can You Get a Ziac Prescription Online?
Do you have high blood pressure? If so, you may have heard about or been prescribed Ziac. Now you may be wondering if you can get a Ziac prescription online.
First, let’s talk about what Ziac is, how it works, its benefits and potential side effects, and other considerations and precautions of Ziac. Then we’ll discuss how you can get a Ziac prescription online.
What is Ziac?
Ziac is a combination medication for the treatment of high blood pressure. It combines hydrochlorothiazide (a water pill that prevents your body from retaining too much salt) with bisoprolol (a beta-blocker that improves blood flow through arteries and veins). This combination helps lower blood pressure with one pill instead of two.
How Does Ziac Work?
Ziac works in two ways. It helps your kidneys flush out more salt and water, which reduces edema (fluid retention) that can be caused by high blood pressure. It also prevents certain chemicals in your body (like adrenaline) from working on your heart and blood vessels, which help lower high blood pressure.
Ziac Dosage and Treatment
The starting dose of Ziac is usually one tablet per day that contains 2.5 mg of bisoprolol and 6.25 mg of hydrochlorothiazide. Dosages may go as high as one tablet daily that has 20 mg of bisoprolol and 12.5 mg of hydrochlorothiazide. You should always follow the dosage prescribed by your doctor and written on your medication.
Benefits of Ziac
Ziac has two primary benefits: it reduces fluid retention (edema) and lowers blood pressure. Fluid retention can cause swollen, painful hands, feet, or legs. Ziac also lowers blood pressure. High blood pressure can lead to stroke, kidney problems, or heart attack. Ziac is a combination pill and allows you to take one pill instead of two for these conditions.
Side Effects of Ziac
As with any medication, Ziac has been determined to be generally safe. However, it does carry a risk of side effects. Some side effects you may experience on Ziac include:
- Upset stomach
- Low blood sugar
- Low blood pressure
- Low potassium
- Trouble sleeping
- Reduced heart rate
- Increased blood glucose
- Cold feet or hands
- Heart block
- Congestive heart failure
- Abnormal heart rhythms
- Severely reduced heart rate
- Serious skin reactions
Considerations and Precautions of Ziac
While Ziac is generally considered safe, it isn’t right for everybody. Always tell your doctor about your current medications and medical history to prevent potentially serious complications.
Ziac may cause serious interactions with certain medications. This may mean that you shouldn’t take Ziac, or your doctor may choose to adjust the dosage of one or both of the medications. Always tell your doctor about every medication you take, including vitamins, supplements, and over the counter drugs. Especially be sure to mention if you take any of the following:
- Calcium channel blockers (CCBs) like diltiazem (Cardizem, Tiazac) and verapamil (Calan, Isoptin)
- Digoxin (Lanoxin)
- Cholestyramine (Questran, Questran Light)
- Colestipol (Colestid)
- NSAIDs like naproxen (Aleve) or ibuprofen [Advil, Motrin)
Other Ziac Precautions
Always be sure to tell your doctor your full medical history. Ziac may cause complications with certain medical conditions. Especially be sure to mention if you have or have had any of the following:
- Heartbeats slow enough to make you faint
- Uncontrolled or severe heart failure
- Inability to urinate
- Serious heart condition
- Asthma or other breathing disorder
- Thyroid problems
- Liver disease
- Kidney disease
- Peripheral vascular disease
- Allergy to penicillin or sulfa drugs
Can You Buy Ziac Online?
While you may find websites claiming they can send you prescriptions from another country, federal law requires you to talk to a doctor before getting any prescription medications. Those medications must also be distributed by a reputable pharmacy rather than shipped directly to your doorstep. Therefore, websites that say otherwise are skirting the law.
