Hello,

Yes you are right when you said "New is not always better". I have used ARBs like Cozaar and Atacand, they made me feel that I can't even move my leg to stand up :(. I have to stop ARBs, Also Beta-Blockers cause depression and I sufferred from it for 3.5 years.

I know that diuretic and Calcium Channel Blockers are not new meds. I'm on Diltiazim 120 mg SR twice daily and I can say that it's the best med I have ever used but it's not effective 100%. I need to put a diuretic. I post before about CCB and some people here are using this drug class with no problem for more than 15 years.
Thanks,
Michael
