Hi I am recently [Dec 2012] dx with high bp - I am normal weight, exercise, eat healthily, normal cholesterol and clear arteries [lifeline screening in December]. I had to discontinue Amlodipine due to side effects [head in a vice, dizzy, tinnitus] was started on Ramipril BP well controlled but after a week very red itchy eyes discontinued and started on Irbesartan 150mg - now a week later red itchy eyes again ....... BP well controlled. I don't know what to do anymore. Went to GP was given drops but no great change so I guess back to GP but concerned about changing drug yet again. My body doesn't seem to like these drugs. Anyone had the red itchy eyes ? and what did they change your drug to ? Any advice welcome. I am having ambulatory monitors for heart and BP this week and also EKG but am not expecting anything to come out of it I think my hypertension is hereditary.
