Re: New to diuretics-Help with bad side effects!
I have been taking bp drugs for about 20 years. I had bad side effects from Beta Blockers, Clonidine, and Lasix. Then the doctor put me on ACE inhibitors and I have had no side effects from Prinivil, Lotensin, or Captopril (all ACE) and they always kept my bp in the normal range. I have taken them now for about 15 years. My bp goes up drastically when I get upset about anything and I am anxiety prone. I have tried Paxil for anxiety. It kept my bp down but the side effects were something else and talk about getting hooked on something! It was very hard to get off them. If I were you I would try ACE inhibitors as all the people I know who take them do not have any side effects and it keeps their bp normal. Shirleyr
