A lot of parents in the northern Virginias pediatric medical system are getting too many Tylenedioid medications.
The pediatrician in New Brunswick, which has one of the nation’s largest pediatric nursing homes, said that when she began prescribing Tyledioid to her patients, she found patients started to get too high blood pressure.
The new medication is a blood pressure drug.
It’s a medication that is designed to lower blood pressure, but also it’s meant to help patients lower their cholesterol levels and prevent heart disease.
Dr. Joann Phelan, director of the pediatric nursing program at New Brunswick Children’s Hospital, said patients have started to show signs of heart failure.
The doctor said the medication is intended to help people with high cholesterol but it’s not intended to control heart disease and it can also cause more complications.
Phelan said she saw some of the patients who had high blood pressures who were taking the medication as a preventive measure.
One patient she treated with the medication was hospitalized in September and is still recovering.
She said some patients were taking a higher dosage and the medication could cause them to lose a lot of blood pressure and eventually die.
