I am still doing the rounds so to speak, of trying different BP meds. by my GP. This is the latest one which I have been on now for about 12 days. I have had so many adverse side effects from the others I have tried (see my comments under the amlodpine forum discussion) I wonder if any one else on this has noted any from this one.
The problem I have is that it would seem that all the different meds. have/are affecting the electrolytes in my kidneys, so I have been having low salt or high potassium readings from blood results. I generally am feeling ill most of the time, and am due to see a specialist in a couple of weeks to check this out. It is therefore hard to know exactly what is causing what..
I have a dry mouth, swollen ankles, and general unwell feeling. The other problem is trouble sleeping and anxiety - really quite bad. - GP has prescribed short term, sleepers and diazapam for this - is this really where I want to go.
Would welcome all thoughts and experiences please.
