For high blood preasure I take 1 tablet perindropril 8 mg in this same time like Sotalol.
I got diarrhea somethimes even 4 times daily all these years.Maybe it is the reason,that tablets not working perfect.I do not know,if tablets are the reason of diarrhea too!

Hi--the blood in your urine wouldn't have been caused by those medications. The blood in your urine might have indicated a bladder infection but you do need to see the urologist since this may indicate a bladder inflammation that isn't an infection, or bladder polyps or kidney disorders, or it could indicate either bladder or kidney cancer so I would get a ct scan of your abdomen and have you undergo cystoscopy to look at the inside of your bladder. Many times, however, no reason is found for blood in the urine
