.I'm prescribed coversyl (perindopril) and bendroflumethiazide for High blood pressure yet it states on coversyl 'not to be taken with the bendroflurazide. doctor says he knows what his doing. I'm 5.4 and 9 stone. and 64. any help on this query please.
I am unaware of any reason why Coversyl should "not to be taken with bendroflumethiazide."
Perhaps it states something like "tell your doctor IF you are taking" another blood pressure medication as the effects can be additive.
Are you SURE of your precise wording on the Coversyl warning?
MANY people combine a beta-blocker with a diuretic; it is usually considered the first-line method of BP control.
