[QUOTE=flowergirl2day;3601445]Why not take just ONE of the two meds you mention? I know you're trying to keep the doses low due to the effects of these drugs on sexual function. You could ask your doctor which one of the two drugs is going to do more for you, regarding slowing your fast heart rate and lowering your blood pressure. Hypotension can be dangerous if the blood pressure and heart rate drop too much. The dizziness and other symptoms are no fun, either. :(
Instead of combining your beta blocker with a CCB, as you plan on doing, why not add a tiny dose of hctz? You might be pleasantly surprised. Perhaps the combination of a beta blocker and a CCB isn't right for you. I think you need to discuss these issues with your doctor.
I have tried adding HCT but it causes a lot of side effects :(, also I have tried combining Norvasc + Zebeta but I got fast HR at night (after Norvasc dose by few hours). Anyway, for the last 2 days I took 2.5 mg of Zebeta at morning and Diltiazem SR 90mgat night.
My reading, few minutes ago, was 110/64 and HR 64 :D. I think this is great, don't you think that too?
About my sexual concern, I haven't had sex before (because I'm not married) but still I'm worry because Beta-Blockers do effect sexual ability. Anyway, I should not worry about this now as much as I should worry about my HBP. If I maintain my good health I could stop using the beta-blocker when I get marry, with my dr guidance.
Thanks for help,
