I am 32, male, in good shape etc. I was diagnosed with high blood pressure earlier this year and have been put on several medications. They have all lowered my BP but I've had bad side effects with them all, to the point I'm worried non will work.
-Losartan - took it for a week and got chest pains (maybe just heartburn though)
-Amlodipine - was on it for 4-5 months. Started having episodes of reflux and continuous belching/burping which I hadn't thought was caused by the drug. Really impacted my quality of life, sleepless nights etc. Came off it and the symptoms alleviated.
-Candesartan - took for 1-2 weeks and the reflux symptoms have come back with avengance. Have stopped taking it to see if these side effects will go soon.
I'm at a loss with what to do next as I'm worried that all the drugs will give me side effects. Has anyone else been in a similar situation to me and can offer some advice?
