Re: Good news

Good for you, stophypertension!

You should soon be noticing a difference in how you feel and get your life "back". When I was on 800mg of labetalol in addition to other bp drugs, I could not function. This drug is potent even in smaller doses and not for everyone. There are other meds to try if needed.

Marantz,

I am happy for you. Way to go!!!!

I asked my doctor why he put me on a calcium channel blocker & a a1/ blocker. And he said the reason why is because he didn't want to overdose on just one thing and wanted to attack my hypertension from different angles. my hypertension is mostly due to my kidneys, and probably my lack of excercise from the last serveral years (aka couch potatoe) and I haven't eaten as well as I could.

So what I did was just cut out all the bad food (inc fast food), couldn't excercise that much because of the weather, and just reduce my sodium intake.

heres my formula:

- sleep well
- remove yourself from stressfull situations
- reduce sodium intake as much as possible
- If could, excercise & work out more.


the doctor said, my ultimate goal was to get on 5 mg of Norvasc

Re: Good news

Congratulations!!! 200mg of labetalol is "snack food" for my HBP :.) I'm on 900mg twice a day!!!

Do everything you can to get off of all meds-you have a chance at least to do that. Fam
