I have been prescribed Amlodipine 5mg and more recently 10mg . I have what I consider borderline high blood pressure and possible 'white coat syndrome' as its always higher in the presence of Gp. I am suffering with swollen ankles and legs as a result of the highe dose. As I lead a fairly active life and have a healthy diet the Gp has concluded that I must have a genetically high BP ? How can this be assumed ? I have been told that whatever I do .exercise,diet , etc it will never reduce my blood pressure . Has anyone ever been advised the same?
