Hello,

You had Accelerated Hypertension.for which you might have been prescribed anti-hypertensive drug/s to control BP. It is quite possible that you have developed a reaction to one of the drugs.

Out of the anti-hypertensive drugs, ACE inhibitors like Enalapril or Ramipril can cause a skin rash, photosensitivity, arthralgia; arthritis.

In that case, you have to discontinue the drug and replace with another anti-hypertensive drug (to consult your doctor).

For itching and skin rash low-sedating antihistaminic agents such as cetirizine or levocetirizine generally are used first.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Tushar Kanti Biswas, Internal Medicine Specialist

Dear Dr. Langsjoen: A friend is a past heart attach victim, and has congestive heart failure and high blood pressure. He also needs to lose a lot of weight. His cardiologist has him on maximum strength blood pressure medicine as well as a statin, and he is miserable. He is now taking CoQ10 at my suggestion. I have recommended he stop taking the statin and find another way to lower any imflammation (his doctor has never tested his CRP levels). Are there effective ways to reduce blood pressure in a situation like this without the blood pressure drugs? Are there any other therapies which can improve his status?
