I was initially given ramipril , eventually I got to the top dose but it did not lower my BP. Another Doctor then gave me perindopril eventually the 8mg top dose and it lowered my BP slightly but not as good as may do and my BP was still rising quite high on occasions. I saw yet another Doctor in my surgery and she gave me a diuretic called Indapapamide 1.5mg. saying she had seen good results from this drug with BP the past 12 months. The indapamide reduced my BP dramatically within a couple of weeks. Though I still take perindopril 8mg also.
I am not sure if it is the high dose of perindopril or coincidence that since on the diuretic I have had what appears to be panic attacks. I have started to become agrophobic with them.
The combination however has made me feel physically better apart from the so called panic attacks which are dreadful. I hope the info re the diuretic is helpfull to anyone , has anyone any information regarding my symptoms of supposed panic? cheers
