I have been prescribed Lisinopril 7.5 mg to reduce BP - incremental increases from 2.5; then 5; now 7.5 mg. (Amlopidine stopped as my ankles started to swell). I felt 'comfortable' taking 5 mg of Lisinopril, but 7.5 is causing some side effects - some breathlessness, feeling depressed, difficulty sleeping, occasionally dry cough (I know the cough is 'normal')
Had a check-up with the GP today, and BP had gone up to 165/90 (possibly due to recent stress, maybe white-coat syndrome).
I've read some studies and reports which indicate that 300 mg of grape seed extract has reduced BP for many people.
Has anyone tried grape seed extract with or without other BP medication?
I hate being on BP tablets - have never been on regular/on going medication before. But I have to lower my BP before I can have an operation. I'm also reducing my weight, and walk as much as I can (not long distances owing to Degenerative Disc Disease in lower back). I'm age 67 and female.
Feeling fed up ! :-(
