Blood pressure meds

Posted , 5 users are following.

I feel like i am bothering my doctor. I have hbp now and last week they first tried toporol xl..it had way too many side effects and i could nit use it. Now they tried norvasc 2.5 generic. Its all good except i have bad heartburn nd i have gerd and im scared to tell dr. I have researched all the bp meds and it just seems each comes with its own set of troubles. Id love people to say good stuff but they tend to say scary stuff on side effects. Should i tell my dr. Should i wait till i just cant take the heartburn. This who bp thing is so new and scary and i ws a big time alternative drug person and now i cant use mostt of that stuff. This is a frustrating time finding the ine bo med tht agrees with your system.
