    BP and Protonix

    I was diagnosed with high BP about 8 years ago. Around that same time I was put on Protonix for GERD. My doctor started me on Lotrel 5-20 once a day, then 2x per day, later he added Bisoprolol 5mg 2x per day and my BP never really came down. It was not extremely high, probably 140's over 90. I recently read that using Protonix for extended periods can effect BP, so I decided to start cutting the 40mg Protonix in half a few months ago. Within a few days of doing this, I noticed my BP came down significantly. Along with the lower numbers, I started to feel very tired during the day, so I cut back on the Bisoprolol to 1 pill per day, thinking it may be too much. I now have consistent readings of 115/68 (give or take a few), which is the lowest I have been in years! And this is with a very stressful new job and not a lot of time to exercise and a normal diet.

    Has anyone else seen this kind of side effect from Protonix?

    I am 5'7, 174, 47 years old.

    Thank you,
