High & Low Blood Pressure board

Getting the meds right is a job. Don't feel overwhelmed. I can tell you from my experience that HCTZ does the best for me for controlling the bp. Without it, I also take Lotrel (Norvasc and a calcium channel blocker), my blood pressure creeps up till I need to take it again. I take Lotrel for its other benefits for me.

I think the tiredness from the HCTZ can go away after a month or so when your body gets used to it. You don't say how long its been. They all take getting used to as the body adjusts. Anything causing itching or breathing difficulty, ofcourse has to be stopped. But I would give the tired feeling a little time to subside.

Just my 2 cents, and good luck!
