Discussions that mention norvasc

High & Low Blood Pressure board

Hey Lenin,

You never mentioned anything with respects my query on ARBs on the other post. You recomended them as a possibility, but I was unclear as to the negatives towards them generally on this board.

Since Friday, I have been taking 1.25 mg. Norvasc, from an extra supply my mother has. It has lowered my BP down to high 130s to low 140s over mid 80s to low 90s. I can't get in to see my doc until next Tuesday, so I took this as an interim measure. I really don't want to be on a high octane drug like this. Any thoughts as to what I should ask my doc?

BTW, I get similar results on 5 mg Valium and a glass of Merlot...LOL!

Regards, Brenden.
