 Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I am 30 years old and in my 6th month of pregnancy. My pulse goes up to 120 per minute and I sweat profusely on the slightest exertion. I also start gasping and feel breathless. My BP and all other tests are normal. What can this be due to?

Farah (Ahmedabad, India)

A: Please check your thyroid hormones and your blood sugar levels.

Dr. Asha Paranjpe

Q: What are the side effects of having Alphadopa 250mg and ASA 50 in the 8th month of pregnancy when the mother has a blood pressure of 136/96? How long should one continue these medicines? Does the blood pressure become normal after delivery?

Tasneem (Chennai, India)

A: Alphadopa 250 mg and ASA 50 help maintain a normal blood pressure during pregnancy. These will be continued till you deliver. The BP comes back to normal within 6 weeks of delivery if it is high only during pregnancy.
