Hi all mu mum was admitted to the hospital yesterday. After taking her high blood pressure tablets. She has been taking her tablets for the last thirty odd years. And the doctor has said that because of her age. She has become allergic to her tablets. Is that true. She has swollen tongue and was unable to breath after taking her meds. Has this ever happened to any one on this site. Please can you advise. My mum is in her 80s. I have been in high blood pressure tablets for twenty years. I am 49 years old. Would that be an issue for me aswell. Shouldn't the doctor be aware of this problem before it happened and try to weaned you off the meds by lowering the dosage.
She was taking atenolol 50 mg. same as I am taking now. Any advice will be greatly appreciated .
