... pressure went up so stopped taking it and started Advair diskus. My blood pressure is better but still high. Is there a maintenance medicine that does not cause HBP? I am female, 56 years old. Last year I was in great physical condition. This year I have suffered from severe fatigue and hoped the new diagnosis and medicine would help. My blood pressure was up to 200/98 on Symbicort and that makes me feel pretty lousy!
