I have been using celebrex for over ten years for arthritus. About 2 years ago my blood pressure rose, so that i had to use dynacirc to bring the pressure down to about 120 from 165.
I have noticed for a few weeks that my legs seemed heavy; I found that my BP had droppped, once to 99. I stopprd the dynscirc; however, the BP has risen only to about 115 +- 5. I continue to be fatigied, snd sleep excessively. I thought that I had food poisoning a week ago; I have recoveres frpm that. However, the BP remails about 115, to day up to 125. I continue to feel fatigued, and continue to sleep: heavy naps. This is reduced from the much longer sleeping I did last week. But it still excessive.

Morning and welcome to the forum..90 yrs. old and in very good health that is wonderful..

Your PSA was 3 years ago 0.09..have you been checked lately? You should have another lab work done..Prostate problems is nothing to take lightly as you alreadyd know..

I wonder if it is time for you to see your doctor for a pill check..Am wondering also why your BP is dropping..Do you have anything else going on? Eating ok? Stress? Worries or fears?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
This is considered as normal.
I would suggest you to have thyroid function tests to rule out hypothyroidism.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
