If you get light headed with hypertension, I would reccomend starting to monitor blood pressure, if pulse, or blood pressure go to unsafe levels when you have things such as light headedness/disiness keep notes of it he needs to pay attention when that happens (if gets really high goto ER). Also ask to do blood tests (unless done already) to determine if you have critical low numbers of certain nutrients (I had potassium deficiency that did it)

If pulse goes really high during lightheadedness It could be a sign (what er told me so had to go fast) that your hearts not getting enough oxygen. Howver light headedness could also be due to inner ear disturbences. but it is generally not if the above i said happens.
I could research supliments that deal in ligheheadidness if you like and tell you those vitamins that deal with that If so just ask here I'll checj yo in those.

Even though I have not really found clinical studies lists on the 2 herbs originally in this topic HAWTHORN, and CELERY SEED the studies do suggest that both herbs do not interact adversly with medications or real side-effects. the person I have been trying with these 2 herbs has had positive reduced blood pressure from those 2 you might try those. read my previous topics for vitamin, and some herb suppliments for blood pressure

Yes, I know what you mean about the meds messing with one's life...I too, was active, before bp meds, and became a temporary "cripple" taking them.

Feeling lightheaded (and fainting) may be an overdose of the lisinopril. I was on 20 mg of lisinopril and experienced lightheadedness, dizziness, and fainting and was told by the nurse at my doctor's office that my body was "adjusting" to the medication. My body never adjusted and the doctor switched me to another medication. I found out later that lightheadedness and fainting were symptoms of overdose!! (The doctor downplayed this by saying the dose was too strong). If your doctor is not listening to you, check with your pharmacist. Those side effects are serious and could cause you and perhaps others harm (especially if they happened when you were driving!)

I am now on only 5 mg of Norvasc and doing ok...now that I am off of grapefruit (which, I believe, intensified the side effects). That is not to say that your problems are not caused by the Norvasc. But since I've been on both drugs, at different times, I'm sharing my experiences with you.

The DASH diet works! If it doesn't get you off of drugs, it may make it possible to take lower doses of drugs. Your doctor should be willing to work with you on diet. I think you've found too, that the drugs sometimes make it impossible for one to diet and exerise...but hopefully, you'll find a combo that will enable you to do so!

I know of know of no herbals that will help lower bp...but diet, exercise, breathing, relaxation can do wonders. Oh, and do stay away from the alcohol as it can RAISE blood pressure.

Take care...good health...and keep in touch!

Based on MY RESEARCH neither Hawthorn, nor celery seed has any adverse reactions to perscribed medications (this does not mean it does not however none reported on my research) and SHOULD BE FINE to take with said medications. However if you do take them it is a wise idea of course to discuss it with your doctor

CELERY SEED instead of juice which can be alot of water (concentrate not full juice usually) Tablets can be bought as well as you can buy it pure as a spice in stores. (seasoning bottle) celery seed and celery juice may be 2 different things
