Have stomach aches, diarrhea and tiredness. Have hereditary BP. Medications have side effects. Alternate treatment?

over the years I have tried many blood pressure medications all with side effects bad enough that I cant take them. Without them my blood pressure can easily get up to 175/110. It s heredity in my family no matter what diet and exercise I do. I have an enlarged heart from it. The latest medication has caused me terrible stomach aches, bloating , diarrhea and tiredness. I m at my whits end and wonder if I just have to consign myself to a shortened life off medication

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

For managing Blood pressure, there are several classes of drugs and several drugs in each class.
One may react to many things - but can not have reaction to everything
Surely, it might be possible to get one that suits you....

It is not only the length of life but also the quality of life -
No need to get dejected -
Be patient.
It is a question of trail and error
It is a question of time.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
