I have suffered with hypertension for 18 years but it

I have suffered with hypertension for 18 years but it was well controlled with medication. Recently, within the past 4 weeks, my pressure spiked several times to dangerous levels. Currently I am taking 6.25 mg of Coreg twice daily and metformin 1500 mg. However I am constantly tired, and my throat feels tight, and my pressure zooms up periodically.

Hello, I have been taking losec 20mg per day for 18 years and stopped 4 months ago without incident. I was on it initially because of persistant nausea after the birth of my daughter. My doctor kept prescribing it and I kept taking it. I ve suffered from increasingly high blood pressure which started around the same time and have no risk factors. I recently started seeing a Naturopath for the blood pressure and she was shocked about the losec and asked if I could stop as it blocks the absorption of Magnesium which she felt could be a contributing factor in the hypertension. Could you please tell me if there is scientific evidence that losec causes high blood pressure and is it reversible? My numbers are typically 180/112 on medication. I m 5 6 , weigh 120lbs., don t drink (not even coffee) and have never smoked. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks so much, ~~Carolyn

I am suffering from hypertension from the age of 18. now my age is 28. my mummy and daddy is also suffering from this. Approx one and half year ago, i felt light chest pain (on those days, i didn t take medicines from 1 year). after checkup, my blood pressure was 150/90 approx. doctors suggested me to take telmikind 20. after 1 month my pressure was 160/90 then they suggested me to take metosartan 40+25. they suggested to go with renal artery angio and doppler study and told me that you are suffering from segmental renal artery stenosis. Then i gone to AIIMS Delhi. After Echo and doppler they didn t find any problems to worry (Just mild LVH). Then they suggested me to take amlong H. after that my pressure became almost normal in normal conditions. after 1 yr of continuous medication, my pressure becomes slightly below the normal range then i have self decided to take half of this tab daily. After some days, during my personal and family tension, my pressure became again high (150/90) and some times i was feeling slight chest pain. Then again i started to take 1 tab daily and gone to specialist doctor and then he suggested to continue amlong h and start ramipril 2.5. now my pressure is almost normal without starting ramipril 2.5. should i start ramipril 2.5 or not?????? how long will i be on medication???? now i am feeling more sweating than others as well as frequent numbness of legs, hands etc. plz help me....thanks a lot.....
