Discussions that mention diltiazem

Multiple Sclerosis board


If any of you are on blood pressure meds, which ones do you take? Did you find that some of them made your symptoms worse? The reason I ask is because my doctor thinks the spots on my brain are from MS, and he also recently switched my blood pressure meds because he thought they were causing some of my symptoms. Now I don't know if the possible MS or the meds were causing my symptoms.

I would like to go back to my old blood pressure medicine because it kept my blood pressure at a great level, and this new stuff is making my bp higher! I was on very small doses of lisinopril and atenolol (he took me off both)...now he has me on a calcium channel blocker called diltiazem. Any thoughts?
