been on plendil, lotrel, diovan, zesteril, zestoretic, exforge, norvasc, and catapres. No medicine or combination does the trick and most don't help at all. Some costy a fortune and some make you feel like crap. none do anywhere near enough good. I am broke and can't keep running to the doctor all the time, do not eat much salt, and have lost a significant amount of weight. Nothing helps. What is there to do. Best I can figure is quit worrying about it and when I die oh well!
not to scare you but is your condition only b.p.? i had uncontrolled b.p., turns out after 3 years of begging for help, i had a pheochromocytoma. if b.p. is only issue, there are tons out there to be tried, go old b.p. drugs. father in law says he tried over 25 till he found old b.p. med that worked. he had ungodly high b.p. and now much better. good luck, remember docs like getting stuff for pushing new meds. look at different classes of b.p. med, and start there, try each class, then get further in if a certain class helps even a little bit. but really get it under control as soon as you can, i now have enlarged heart because doc didnt do his homework(I had to find my own tumor, by reading symptoms. less than 60 day from dead doc says, thanks doc, can u pay me for doin your job?) sorry, guess im still a little bitter, but really dont give up.
