Amlodipine (5mg) for high blood pressure

I've used this twice so far. The first time i had troublesome side effects, but it's not clear to me if it was from my other medication or this. My blood pressure is now down to normal after taking it for 14 days.

Perindopril (8mg) for high blood pressure

Everything has gone well through the years. This is definitely something that i want more of but i can't. Probably has something to do with old age.

Bisoprolol (5mg) for high blood pressure

low heart rate for the first few days, fatigued and listless, couldn't ride my bike. Decided to halve my dose myself and progressively increased it based on my own experience as a nurse. Haven't got any symptoms any more and I'm really happy.

Candesartan (4mg) for high blood pressure

I have atacand for my blood pressure, but the odd side effect is that I get a nagging pain on the LHS of my chest. I wonder if anyone else has this same problem.

Metoprolol (200mg) for high blood pressure

Because of TIAs and high BP, I've been on metoprolol for years, starting with once a day on 100 mg most recently up to 200 mg. I'm always tired, my BP is getting higher, I'm unsettled, not sleeping well. Does anyone else have experience with this and is there a better drug for reducing BP without other symptoms?

Amlodipine (5mg) for high blood pressure

The only bad thing about Amlodipine Accord is that the tablets are quite rough and are difficult to swallow. This meant that after taking them I had a bit of a sore throat.

Amlodipine (5mg) for high blood pressure

I was prescribed this because my blood pressure was still extremely high (over 230). And it does what it's supposed to do: my blood pressure has gone back down to normal. But I have definitely noticed the side effects, worst of all fatigue. This should have gone away by now, after 4 weeks, but it hasn't. On top of that I have now also always got cold hands (which I never had before, never even...

Enalapril (10mg) for high blood pressure

I had this medicine for 3 months. I had to cough more often, that’s the only side effect I noticed at first. More side effects appeared after a while (shortness of breath, fatigue, stomach ache, painful legs). I was quite fit before, but this medicine made it hard to keep up walking and running. Without this medicine I’m once again able to keep up with my running group. Now I’m taking Amplodipi...

Spironolactone (50mg) for high blood pressure

The cardiologist gave me 2 x 50 mg without looking at the other medicines I was taking. One week later I was in intensive care with three infusions and seven people fighting for my life. My potassium level was at 6.9 (lethal) and my blood pressure was 80/40. Humph.

Enalapril (5mg) for high blood pressure

Blood pressure is now stable at 140/90 (was 190/110). Really irritated eyes, blurred vision - not all the time but changeable. I did stop for a while 4 weeks ago and it did seem to get a bit better. But when I restarted it got worse again.
