On the 15th I reported about my problem with Madiplot â€“ stopped using it but since then, the Kidney Doctor had me try a Calcium Channel Blocker, â€œConcorâ€ as an alternative to control the BP â€“ BUT it proved worse than the Madiplot. Both were reported in a Medical study to cause Parkinsonism side effects. So Iâ€™ve now stopped all meds except Valsartan, reducing it from 80 to 40mg daily, with great success.
ANXIETY was found to be my major problem, brought on or emphasized by the drugs. Most all of the Parkinsonism has gone and the Neurologist has scheduled me for a later 2 month checkup.
Still dealing with the â€œanxietyâ€ however by using the smallest dosage of Valium possible to curb it when it flairs up and my BP rises out of control. I know Valium is called â€œsolid alcoholâ€ and as a alcoholic should be avoided, so I will therefore seek for a anxiety â€œcontroller drugâ€ as apposed to the Valium anxiety suppressor narcotic.
Increasing my walking exercises and then starting Meditation classes at Wat Suan Dok Temple will be the first line of new defenses â€“ that should really help and putting my trust in God or MY Higher Power to protect and guide me through the transition from drug control to Faith Control.
God Bless Ciao
