I am taking AmLodipine 5 mg for hypertension. My BP numbers at my last BP reading was 140/70. I have diabetes and Acid reflux. I take Metformin for diabetes,Omeprazole 40 mg for acid reflux, and Atorvastatin -80mg for cholesterol . My doctor has prescribed Spironolactone 25 mg for hypertension to replace Amlodipine. I on occasions take Ibuprofen for pain. I also take aspirin, Geritol, Vitamin B complex, and a multivitamin on a daily basis. I am concerned about the side effects of the medications I am taking and the new medication which has been prescribed for me and about about the any adverse interaction between the drugs.

I have been on 100 mg Losartan for about 3 weeks, with 10 mg Amlodipine which I ve been taking for several months. I d like to stop taking the Losartan and want to know how to wean off from it. I m not feeling well on this drug and it is not controlling my BP . Before I was taking 12.5 mg Metoprolol with the Amlodipine and it was controlling my BP nicely, but I felt it was affecting my breathing some. However, it was not as bad as this Losartan.

I take two blood pressure medications daily. losartan-hzt 100.25 and bisoprolol fummarate 5mg. Lately my blood pressure does not seem to be very well controlled. Tonight it was 175/69. My internal medicine doctor has me monitoring my pressure for two weeks and I am to fax her the readings and she will decide if we need to change the medication or what. It is the week-end and I can not call her until Monday and their recording just says if you are concerned go to emergency. If I am not in danger I do not wish to do that because of the expense. I am female 74 years of age. Other wise in generally good health. Thank you.
