Discussions that mention norvasc

High & Low Blood Pressure board


My doctor lets me take the ones that make you drowsy at bedtime, and divides my other meds, taking half in morning and half at bedtime.

I'll explain; in morning I take 5 mg. norvasc and 20 mg of Lisinopril. At bedtime, I take the other 5 mg of norvasc and 20 mg of Lisinopril, as well as 50 mg of Atenenol which makes you drowsy. I've been doing this for the past 3 years, works like a charm and I get a good night sleep.

My pressure during the day runs about 123-127/78-80. He and I am very happy with those numbers considering I had extremely high pressure which caused my stroke. Thank God 4 years later, I have not had any reoccurences.

You might want to discuss different options with your doctor.
Hope this helps!
