BP is finally normalizing again, but. . .

It's really strange, my GP has switched my meds so I can get a cheaper prescripton. He sent me home with a bag-load of samples for now to see how I do. It has been, generally, trending downward and the dystolic is now closer to 90 than 130, and the Systolic is down from 200 to 140 after two days of the new drugs.

Oddly enough, my pulse rate is up from 60-65 to closer to 75 and 80.

I don't know what that's about, but has anyone else had something like that happen on new meds?

BTW: Thanks everyone for you concern--it was greatly appreciated.

That's what mine did only worse. She gave me samples of Benicar 40/20 and my blood pressure dropped to a range of 80/49 to 98/65, my pulse went up to 85-119 at resting. She said to test it for 2 weeks that it should even out, but it never did. She then switched me to Benicar 20/12.5 and my blood pressure now remains around 115/75 and my plus has dropped back down to around 65-70. Plus I feel good, very good. Even lost my evening ankle swelling. I do however have a cough, not sure if it started when I was on the 40/20 or not, but I'm almost sure it's connected with the Benicar. I can live with it though - I feel so much better than when I was on Atenlol, which I took for 3 years & was always tired.
