Discussions that mention norvasc

High & Low Blood Pressure board

Let me toss something in.
For a month I tried atenolol + Norvasc. The Norvasc made me jumpy and the atenolol made me an insomniac and ONE of them made it hard for me to focus my eyes on close material (I still don't quite need reading glasses.) As soon as I stopped these two drugs my vision returned to normal.

Though I cannot be CERTAIN which drug was responsible, I think the odds favor atenolol as the cause...but I could be wrong. I think the mechanism is that they weaken the contractile strength of the small muscles that re-focus the eye.
