Has anyone ever had to take 6 blood pressure meds to get your heart rate and blood pressure under control? My blood pressure and heart rate was in stroke range and finally is down but it has taken 6 meds to do it and they are all almost at max doses. I am on Hydrochlorothiazide, Lisinopril, Verapermil, Norvasc, Bystolic,Hydralazine and now Prazosin which is being used for nightmares but is also a BP medicine. Has anyone ever heard of it taking so much to work? I would greatly appreciate any input you folks may have for me as you always have been helpful in the past. Thanks my friends out there, take care and thank you ahead of time for any help or comments you may have, marjorie zych
