Blood pressure meds and fatigue


I have been on Bp medication since 1998. First Atenolol and then Lopressor--quit the beta blockers because of sexual side effects and depression (I think was caused by BB and stress).

I am now on diovan at 160 mg. I started on 80 mg and when the doctor increased it to 160 mg, I am just exhausted all the time. I also take 20 mg of Paxil daily but the real change began when I upped the Diovan.

Are there any ACE or ACR inhibitors that will not cause drowsiness?

Re: Blood pressure meds and fatigue

I don't know about any blood pressure meds that don't make you tired what I do think however is that blood pressure meds are supposed to make you tired and slow you down. That's how they work to get your blood pressure lower.
