High & Low Blood Pressure board

I am on 2 BP meds now - Cardura and Atacand. I also take Coenzyme Q-10 and frankly, I think it has had the best impact. I started at 50 mg of CoQ-10 just to make sure I tolerated it ok, then moved up to 150mg after a week and after another week went up to 200 mg/day.

CoQ-10 is available at most any place that sells vitamins.

I am not one to normally recommend things, particularly alternative remedies. However, I am not adverse to trying things. For various conditions, I have tried accupuncture, biofeedback, meditation, various vitamins and minerals. Usually though, I mostly follow traditional treatments.

Someone suggested CoQ-10 to me and I figured, why not try it. It has helped, but I still have a ways to go.

I am to try adding Norvasc next. I'm to start at 2.5mg. The most common side effect is swelling (edema) in your ankles.

Hope that helps you some...
