Re: Can BP meds make you feel out of breath?
Not sure how long you've been on the HCTZ but it seems to me that since HCTZ alone can cause electrolyte disturbances and dehydration it could be your body has taken a hit just from that. Oh wait, you said you had blood tests, so that would pick up any electrolyte issue like low potassium.
So maybe, as you say, it's the trio in combination with each other.... a CCB+ARB+HCTZ.
If you've been thru tests and all seems well, I can't understand why your doc won't entertain the possibility that it could be a meds issue. Whether dose related or the way these drugs act in tandem, who knows, but it's definitely another discussion I would have with him.
Have you been on this regimen a while? Or is it relatively new?
