Discussions that mention norvasc

High & Low Blood Pressure board

Hi - I had to discontinue taking Norvasc because of ankle and leg swelling. At first, the swelling was minimal but later became very uncomfortable and actually was painful. I also became very tired when I took it during the day. So, I started taking it at night. That helped, but the leg swelling and tingling caused me to stop. My doctor said to stop taking it and take Bystolic, a beta-blocker. It does not cause my legs to swell or tiredness; however, my systolic blood pressure reading is much higher. I'm still taking it but may decide to change once again to another b/p drug. I also take Enalapril twice a day plus HCTZ. Norvasc was added when my systolic pressure got higher.
Hope this helps some. mabent :)
