Hypertension And Cd

5 posts in this topic

I am having a difficult time finding a medication I can tolerate for hypertension. The ones I've tried upset my stomach and my dr. seems baffled as to what to try next. If you are taking medicine for high blood pressure could you please let me know what you are currently taking? Thanks.

Beelzebubble, are you currently taking those meds for high blood pressure and not having any negative reactions to them? The ones I've tried upset my stomach terribly. Thanks

I am in the midst of the same thing. I was taking atenolol and I kept telling the doctor it was making me sick. Of course they said no, its not the medicine. My blood pressure was rising so she doubled it! After two days I refused to take it anymore (I know not the right way) but my blood pressure was higher, severe diarrhea, heart palpitations, dizzy, etc. I am now trying lotensin. I can't way anything yet since I have only been on it for about 4 days now

Janine, my doctor also had trouble believing that B/P meds could cause an upset stomach. Thankfully she did say to stop the med for a few days and see if I got better. Of couse I did get better. Then when I try a new medication I get sick again. I'm now about to try beta blockers for the first time (with lots of trepidation). One thing, though, my doctor said to give my stomach a rest between trying meds to let it heal, even tho my B/P goes up. I wondered if you were doing the same. Please let me know if you do find a medication that you can take with no stomach problems and I'll be sure to do the same. Good luck! Vicki
