That must be frustrating for you. It's simply astounding all the regulatory and counter regulatory mechanisms the body has for all of its systems. It's like playing whak-a-mole. You fix one thing, only to have body's compensating mechanism kick in and thus throw some other function off kilter.I think what I'm going to do is stop the florinef for a few weeks but remain on my current dose of preg or possibly go up a little and then test preg and aldosterone and get a cbc/cmp to see where my Co2 is at and see if it is actually bringing up my aldosterone levels which brings my Co2 up or if something else might be brining up my Co2. It's gonna be bad because the heart palps will come back with a vengeance but I've put up with them for 3 years so I guess I can live with them for a few weeks.Do you see any impact on blood pressure levels taking the florinef?
Yes I do actually. It's weird but most everything with me seems to be weird. Prior to trt my BP was always around 120/70. Just a few months into trt it jumped to 13x/8x and was as high as 150/90 at the docs office a few times. When I first started florinef my BP actually dropped back down to my normal 120/70 but after a month or so it started creeping back up. As I said earlier it also raised my Co2 levels from 18 to 23 but then after about a month my Co2 dropped back down. I thought maybe I needed a little bigger dose so I started upping the dose and my BP just kept getting worse. That's when I decided to drop the dose back down and start on the preg to see what would happen. I've stopped the florinef about 3 days ago and my BP is starting to come back down and I've had little to no heart palps so this tells me that the preg is doing something just like last time. I was hoping to try a small dose of florinef with the bigger dose of preg in hopes that the combo might raise my Co2 back to where it use to be but I'm not sure I want to continue with the florinef due to the BP issues it can cause. I've hit a dead end at this point.
