That's because it has a water pill in it too.

YES, STOP taking these now! There have been many new HBP medicines put on the market in the past few years. Many doctors will also prescribe a tandum med for cholestoral as well .... both can kill but togather they are lethal.

My advice is stick with an old school med @ a low dose <50mg and watch what you eat and try and quit smoking.
Atenenol is a beta blocker and should do the job just fine . Remember in todays society, its all about the "soft kill"

No, don't stop taking it. I take it as well. That was the one that really lowered my blood pressure. I don't think it is the cause of your sweating. You were prescribed it for a reason, to prevent you from having a stroke and other organ damage or a heart attack. It caused me to feel dizziness at first but that was because my blood pressure was sky high. I get sleepy a lot now but that is a common side effect, plus I'm on 3 others. I used to have the night sweating problem as well before I went on bp meds but it went away. Getting old sucks doesn't it?

It's one of the old-school BP meds and tends to have less ab-reactions than many of the more modern varieties. That's not to say you are not sensitive to it, but don't just drop off them. Go see your doc. A stroke is much worse than a sweat. also, these side -effects often wear off after a couple of weeks.

call your doc and your pharmacist.

Let them inform you.

I would NOT take it. Other drugs and ways beyond drugs exist to help you - if you even need help, diastolic values of 75 are just fine.

Keep taking it. I know I know, they are poison, but they do work, it's the side effects you have to weigh up with that if having hypertension and the damage that does to your heart and blood vessels over time. Do

Go online and look at drug side effects. I had hbp caused by undiagnosed type 2 diabetes. They put me on Lotrel. It has an ace inhibitor. It swelled my throat shut and caused sleep apnea for 3 years. I finally figured it out. The doctor or pharmacist did not. When the diabetes got under control, blood pressure went to normal.

There are many things that can cause this sweating issue.
My mom has use that particular drug for MANY years and it seems to do a good job, but I would still try to get off of it. What will we do if the dooms we expect stop our supply. Then too you need medical insurance money to pay for this stuff.

There are different types of HBP meds. Tell your doctor and he should be able to adjust.

Just start eating right, like Dr. McDougall program, Joel Fuhrman, Dr. Esselstyn or several others and your blood pressure will be fine within a week or so. Watch Forks over knives and the China study.
