Taking stamlo beta, telma. Tendency for BP increase. Take losar?

I am 65 yrs of age and reciding in Pune India. I was taking Stamlo Beta for about five years and then our family physician changed that to Telma 40 in August 11 due certain disorder in Creataninine in Kidney Function. After taking Telma 40 for few days I had some giddyness and the medicine was changed to Telma H since about about six/seven months due to dual action on BP and Kidney function control. Now recently I visited some place Kolkata in India where ambient temp was very high and when I returnedd to Pune my BP was found low as 100/64. doctor advised to change to Telma40 and to take some energel powder after mixing with water. After taking Telma 40 again gidiness started and I stopped taking BP tablets since last one week and my present BP level is 120/80. Doctor advised if there is tendency to increase BP again to take Losar 25 in place of Telma40 due tomgiddyness problem. Pl advice.

Hello,

Telmisartan and Losartan help in the long run by slowing down kidney damage, they also have beneficial effect on the heart. However they are useful for the kidneys only if you have increased protein in the I urine.

What has been your BP during the times you've been giddy. If low BP is the cause maybe a smaller dose might work.

Has your creatinine and potassium been checked recently. If not, check that.

I had high BP and was taking taking Stamlo, Lorvas and Stamlo Beta alongwith Chlosterol reducing tabs like Lipicard and Simlo 10. For the last 18 months I have been taking only one Eslo 2.5 tab in the morning hours as my BP had stabilised to about 120/80. However, for the last 10/12 days my body seems to be paining, pressure has increased to 160/100 and my legs feel heavy. I have resorted to the earlier dose. Pls advise.
