Exclamation Uncontrollable High BP, Newbie here... help?

My doctor started me on Azor last Sunday. I have had nosebleeds ever since, work four tens (ten hours in four days teaching) and I take my meds in the morning. By the time I get home, I can feel I'm "high". I take the Azor along with 25 mg of HCTZ. Anyone have any experience with this drug> Does it take a while to kick in? I don't want to give up yet. I WAS on Benicar 40/25...and that wasnt controlling it, either. I am only 43 years old. I feel dazed and uptight all of the time from this. Would love some input and feedback. Thanks in advanced!!!

Re: Uncontrollable High BP, Newbie

Welcome to the board. We have several knowledgeable folks here and lots of folks with experience with meds.

Please provide us with your bp readings. How long have you been on azor and HCTZ?? It takes about one month to see max benefit.

RELAX. Unless your BP is 200 or more, you dont have much to worry about in the short term.

Keep in mind that the best first step is to change your liftestyle to reduce your BP - weight loss, a diet that includes non-animal protein and fruits/veggies, sodium restriction to < 2.5 grams/day, smoking cessation.
