i am a 56 year old female. BMI normal. Started out on benicar hct 20 mg then up to 40 hct tears ago. About 2 years ago low potassium, switched to benicar 40 (no hct)... and to make along story short, fixed low potassium and now on 5 different meds to control BP, but constant struggle to keep sodium level above 135. Been told to eat more salt, drink less fluid. But the more salt intake, the thirstiest I am. I am on low doses of amplodipine, amilioride, lasisk, hyralazine. Retaining fluid especially in legs and feet. Had lower leg ultrasound this week. No blood clots, fortunately. Just baker cyst behind knee. Don't know where to turn. Hypertension specialist dies have BP under control but this is an awful way to feel. And add dizziness and fatigue due to all the meds. Anyone else with this issue? Any advice? Thank you!
