BP rose after taking stamlo. Related? Take olmesartan instead?

Hello, I was taking stamlo beta 1/2 tablet for the last 5 years. By blood pressure rose (140/90) and doctor has increased the dosage to 1 tablet plus olmesartan 10mg. Now by blood pressure reading is 110/70, have checked multiple times over the past 1 month. I would like to know if my dosage can be re-adjusted given my blood pressure reading is on the lower side. Thanks

I was diagnosed with high blood presure 3 months back when I went to a doctor for a pain in my lower back on both sides. I was advised to drink more water and told to take a dose of Stamlo 5 one tab every day.After I stared taking the tab my BP came down but I developed pains in my chest which I did not have earlier. Then Stamlo 5 was discontinued and I am on Olmesartan medoxomil 40 mg but still the pains are there.I never had any chest pains before I started taking the blood pressure lowering tabs. Please advise.

Taking olmesartan medoxomil and amlodipine for high blood pressure. Have noticed that when I exercise, after about 20 min, my blood pressure drops steadily, like to 77/42, and I have to quit. Worse in the outdoor heat. Seems like my vasodilation mechanism has gotten out of whack because of the olmesartan. What do you think, and what can I do? (The olmeartan-amlodipine combo works fine for keeping down by bp.) Thanks.

my 22 yr. old son has been experiencing high blood pressure which according to charts he is in stage 1 hypertension. The latest reading was 151 over 93. The last 2 weeks he s experienced something not right in his upper left shoulder/chest area. (uncomfortable or light pain) He did see his doctor (a family physician) and had a EKG done. His doctor stated that he has some constriction going on therefore the blood flows back. she put him on some blood pressure pills (I don t recall the name) to calm the vessels. Our history is as follows: His great grandfather died of a heart attack at age 49, his great uncle who was in his sixties died of a heart attack, his grandmother had Chronic kidney disease in her fifties (she had to go on dialyis) and she did have a stroke. I am the mother and also have Kidney disease like my mother. I am concerned about my son. My son has to go back in two weeks to have some blood work done. I m just wondering if this is enough testing. Could there be a blockage? Should he see a cardiologist?
