High & Low Blood Pressure board


Marie,
I had good results taking Toprol, as did a friend of mine. It was causing me to be tired though, and I was switched to Benicar. Fortunately, my BP has lowered and I haven't taken meds. in several years.


Give it a try for 2 weeks and make note of any symptoms that you feel may be related, if you have any changes you notice.

There are many, many BP medications out there; 4 or 5 classifications of blood pressure medicines in fact. I can recall Ace Inhibitors, and Beta Blockers- which Toprol falls under. It may take trying several types to finally find the one that works best for you.

Good luck and check back and let us know how you are doing!
