Hi everyone, I would love someone to give me some pointers as I feel I am going mad. I will give a brief (if pos) lowdown. About 18 months ago I was diagnosed with high bp - about 150/90 average. My GP put me on Zemtard 180mgs, after a year of feeling tired and putting on weight, breasts very large etc, I asked to have my meds changed and went onto amlodopine, firstly 5mgs but he felt my bp was still high and then 10mgs, I felt again very woozy all the time, tired and generally a bit blurry. After a few months of this earlier this year I asked to be changed as I was fed up and so was put on Ramipril (ace inhibitors 10mgs) as he said we should try a different type of bp medication. This caused huge spikes in my bp in fact I felt I was going to fall over. Sooooo I am now back on 5mgs of amlodopine and today feel rubbish, woozy, various pains, no energy. I am fed up with all of this, I give the medications plenty of time as I know some people say to 'stick with them' but nothing seems to change, after 18 months I am at a loss as to what to do?? Has anyone else experienced this? I would love to hear from you.
