Hi, I am a 26 years old male who suffers from high blood pressure (145/95) despite being fit, doing regular exercise, eating a healthy diet, no family history of high BP, no smoking and moderate drinking.
In only 12 months, I've been put on:
- Lisinopril 20mg: hair loss
- Amlodipine 10mg: swollen ankles and itchy skin rash
- Candesartan 16mg: again hair loss
- Hydrochlorothiazide 25mg: fatigue and depression
I don't want to be put on beta blockers because of their well-known side effect on males. To sum up, I have already tried all main types of BP medications (ACE inhibitors, Calcium channel blockers, ARBs, diuretics) and don't want to use them again because of the side effects. What can I do? Is there any other medication I can try?
