Re: Noob to blood pressure meds
Hey man, give it time without the Beta Blocker "Rebound hypertension and tachycardia are common side effects of quitting a BB" these are usually only temporarily.
If you've only been classified hypertensive 4 months I definitely recommend getting of the BB, its the last resort for hypertension. If you begin to have problems with Lisinopril they can always switch you to an ARB like Losartan and Benicar. Hope this helps
Ps- If your highest reading ever without meds is 145/95 i'd HIGHLY suggest moving away from meds entirely, im on 3 myself. Remember, I am not a doctor!
