I do not know why BP meds work but am currently on Benicar (have been on several other bp meds that started to work and then stopped). I have low bp to begin with and this has not lowered my bp at all though it has helped with my symptoms of migraine and vertigo. I have several other drugs on board also - give your meds some time to see if it works for you - 6-8 weeks maybe. I have had vertigo - diagnosed as basilar migraine for 2 and a half years now. Hang in there - meds may work for awhile and you may need others or changes... right now I feel pretty good, but I still never know what tomorrow may bring... be patient, I know how hard those vertigo is and no one really can understand it till they have been there. Either way just know that others do understand what it is like and once in awhile enjoy the dizziness - it is like a free carnival ride - LOL - just kidding and not trying to make light of this horrid affliction, but gotta keep looking at the positive side of life! Good Luck to you - I will watch to see if your bp meds work for you.
