    Question bp meds and anxiety

    Hi all,

    New here. Looking for either similar feelings or advice. I have NEVER been on any chronic medication for anything in my life. My dr put me on amlodipine because my bp is elevated, even though I am not obese, work out most days, and eat fairly healthy. I also don't have an issue with anxiety or stress - EXCEPT as a result of having to take this med! What are the chances of being able to get off it in the future? I haven't noticed any side effects and I don't generally experience side effects to otc or short term meds either, but the idea of having to take something because I can't get it back to normal without it really bothers me. Is this an unreasonable way to feel? Or does anybody else here feel this way? Thanks

    Yes, it is unreasonable to feel that way. Your HBP is evidently genetic and you have no control over that. Mine is the same way...I just consider it an old pill I have to take.No big deal. I take more meds for my allergies than this! And I take 3 shots every 2 weeks for my allergies. Consider it an extra vitamin!

    Amlodipine gave me anxiety too. As did hydrochlorothiazide. I am now on Lisinopril and Carvedilol and the only side effect I now experience is fatigue which I am working on.
