Maxzide general questions...

Was put on it four or five days ago..

Anyways, the first couple days, my BP was down lower than average, much lower. I'm talking about put on the fridge type of numbers. Like 125 over 85.

Last night, it averaged 130-90 or so. That's still much lower on top than it was, but the bottom number is about the same.

My heart rate has increased a small bit while on this med, but I'm not certain if that's because I'm having anxiety (I've got Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) over my health or if it is increasing a little from an average of 65 to 70 due to the medicine.

I've also felt a little nauseated, had frequent urination and a headache. Literature I've found is that these are lesser side effects of the drug.

Anyone got any similar experiences?

Re: Maxzide general questions...

So, I came off the Maxzide yesterday - per doctors' instructions - as my bottom number and heart rate continued to be elevated. My BP last night was ranging 125-130 over 86-90 with no readings over 90 on bottom.

Heart rate had started to fall back down to normal, too.

Still have a touch of a headache and felt somewhat fatigued yesterday morning, but have only been off the meds for a day and a few hours.
