Discussions that mention nifedipine

High & Low Blood Pressure board


Hi everyone,

I’ve now been off medication for over a month. My BP wouldn’t satisfy your American doctors, on average 118/ 83 in the morning after doing vigorous hoovering etc and about 127/87 before I go to bed, but I’m happy with it. I’ll continue to try and lose weight and stuff myself with fruit and vegetables. Most of the side effects have gone but I’m still not sleeping properly. However I only take a sleeping tablet about once a week now. What seems bizarre is that I still get tingling ears, face lips etc and funny feelings in my head. Is this still aside effect of the lisinopril or nifedipine or due to the celery I now faithfully eat with my salad lunch? Good luck to you all
