Re: Toprol Altace Norvasc Making Freind Achey Tiredkilling Him
I had a stroke due to very high blood pressure 4 years ago. My right arm, hand and leg was affected. I am doing terrific today, walk with a cane, and got about 80% back in the arm.
But now to meds, I am on Norvasc, Atenenol and Lisinopril, which are 3 bp pressure medicines. I have never had any problems with them. No aches, pains or muscles problems. I used to be on Diovan as well, but my doctor said I didn't need it anymore. My pressure has been running about 120-128/78-82 which the doctor is very happy with.
It took about the first 6 months after the stroke to get the right combinations. Thank God I had doctors who were willing to try different things for me.
I suggest if your doctor isn't willing to at least look at other options, I would say find another doctor for a 2nd or even 3rd opinion.
Hope this helps! Good luck.
