High & Low Blood Pressure board


Hello everyone new to the board. I am so glad I found this site. Here's my problem, I have been on Toprol XL for about 3 years. I was not takeing it on a reagular bases. 3 months ago my BP shot up to 210/108. I stopped smoking. I was given HTCZ 12.5, Coreg 6.25 and Lotrel 5/20. My BP is ok now but I have the worst case of tremors, light headedness, and slight headach. Has anyone else gotten tremors fron any of these medications?


Thanks!

Flower / Sunshine, Thanks for the reply.
I have completely stop using salt and now I read the sodium % on the package labels. I have read that Lotrel can cause tremors so I had my doc take me off but he replaced it with Nifedical XL. It's only been 3 days. Do you know how long Lotrel can stay in you system?
Thanks!
