I am a 50 year old female and for the last 7-8 years have been taking meds for my blood pressure. I take 5mg Amlodipine in the morning and 100mg Losartan Potassium in the evening. Over the years my weight has been going up so now have put on 6 stone. I have never been a big eater and have always walked my dog for a couple of hours a day, which I have trouble doing now. My feet are painful all the time as are my hands. Initially I thought it was arthritis but after X-rays have been told no sign of it. Sometimes my eyesight is blurred but they cannot find anything wrong with my eyes either. I am tired all the time and can easily sleep away the afternoons if I let myself. I was put on antidepressants but have come off them now. I feel that my doctors think I'm a hypochondriac now as I keep going back and they never find anything. Has anyone else put on weight or had pain while on these meds? I just don't know what to do other than stop taking all meds to see what happens. Any advice would be appreciated as I seem to be getting bigger and bigger and hurt all the time!
