High & Low Blood Pressure board


flo,

I feel for you and I'm in the same place. I've had hypertension for less than 3 years and my blood pressure has gone out of control twice. Norvasc was increased to highest dose and I had a kind of agitated depression. I'm okay on diltiazem i was switched to, but the diovan 320 is causing far too much fatigue. I refused to increase the hctz at the same time. I'm calling the doc on monday/

Do you have any risk factors for this? I don't. Frankly, its a bit frightening and for me I think it will be a continual tweaking of my meds.

Has your doctor switched you to different meds in the same classification. I was able to go from one high dose calcium channel blocker to another on a lower dose and I would like to go from Diovan to a different and lower dose ARF.

Best wishes to you, there's a lot of bp meds and combos thay can try

My dr. has tried different drugs but a lot of them cause my liver enzymes to rise way up so I have to steer clear of those. That cuts my field down as to what I can take. As far as I know I don't have any risk factors for high blood pressure. I ride my exercise bike twice a day and have cut out all salt. So far with the new drug I'm holding ok but I never know when it's going to shoot up again. Flo
