: : Does anyone suffer from both arthritis and high blood pressure? If so, have you found any medication for arthritis that doesn't elevate your blood pressure? I have tried ibuprofen and Vioxx but they elevated my pressure so much I had to stop them. I am in great pain and need relief.
: : Any suggestions will be sincerely appreciated.

: Yes, I have osteoarthritis and high blood pressure. I am a nurse aide and do a lot of bending
: and heavy lifting. I am taking Relafen 2000 mg a day. 1000 in a.m. and 1000 in p.m. plus I take
: Accupril for my high blood pressure. My doctor informed me that I now have to go off the Accupril
: because of it's side effects.

: But for the most part, the two worked pretty well for me until the side effects started.
: Some days are worse then others though when no pain medication relieves the arthritis pain.
