Hi there, I was diagnosed with high bp about a year ago, it was consistantly about 154/95 - so the dr put me on a brand called Zemtard which he said was especially good for tackling the top number ( sorry no technical blurb, early hours of the morning!) anyway these gave me huge boobs and weight gain which I got sick of so about a month ago I asked to be changed, he put me on 10mgs of amlodopine which initially was great the weight dropped off etc but now the side effects are kicking in mainly with me dizziness and feeling light headed also slight tinitus. My bp is now always about 117/84 which I wonder is a bit low, has anyone tried dropping the dosage or would it be better to push for a different type of tablet. This is most frustrating as I am aware of the dangers of high bp, I am 57, good lifestyle etc but a horrible family history of hypotension. Many thanks.
