I’ve been being treated for HBP for about 5 yrs. or so. I dont have any experience with your particular medication. In the beginning, I tried Lysinopril and Norvasc. One gave me a constant cough, the other made my legs swell like tree trunks. I did some research and found that a simple diuretic can often be all one needs to control their BP. My nurse practitioner agreed to try it and thats what I’m using now. I’m sure it all depends on how bad it is and but it’s worth discussing it with your PCP.

I too was tried on many (7] different BP meds about 10 years ago, but I’m really having to go back to square one this time.
I seem to be pretty sensitive to salt, so that’s the first to go........
Came Back to add, a cup or two of Celestial Seasonings ZINGER Tea, any flavor may help, and actually ANY Hibiscus Tea can sometimes do the same. I love Walmart Strawberry Herbal Tea. “Hibiscus” is listed as the primary ingredient.
