I was put on beta blocker 2.5mg in late October 2017 due to high blood pressure. I suspected that the supplement which i took for nearly 2 weeks occasionally has spiked my bp because my bloodwork result were normal. While on bb, I was extremely tired, my left eyelid was swollen, anxiety, heart palpition and having brain fog, nightmares etc. I told my GP about the side effect but she told me it would go off when my body start to adjust. I monitored my bp frm home and presented the whole 2 weeks reading to her. My bp taken at home were always normal below 120/80 but when in GP's clinic it normally higher.
In early January 2018, i went to see another GP and showed him my daily reading. He told me to stop taking beta blocker and gave me amlodipine 2.5 mg to be taken every 3rd day. The purpose is to wean off my bp meds. As i am super sensitive to drugs, i have several side effects though not as bad as when i was on beta blocker.
Now i am off of amlo for 11 days and i am still not feeling so well. Today I am extremely weak and tired, having anxiety and palpition as well. My bp this morning is 104/76. Today i feel like i have no hope to succesfully get off amlodipine but i have to be strong. I dont want to swallow tht pills anymore. Hope i can make it!!
