- high blood pressure, hypertension, side effect
I've had stage 1 hypertension for a couple of years. I've tried lisinopril, atacand, amolodipine and losartan. I've had significant side effects with all of them (insomnia, rashes, hair loss, ... ). Has anyone else had this problem and have you found a solution? I've got allergies and I'm sensitive to other drugs, but there must be others out there.

All medicines have side effects but not everyone experiences them. It can often take several months for your doctor to find something that is effective and without side effects. You will need to be patient.
You haven't tried a beta blocker such as metoprolol or atenolol.
