Over the last few years i have gone through a myriad of tablets none of which worked satisfactorily. But having said that, for me it seems that gluten was a huge problem where bp was concerned. I have been diagnosed coeliac and b12deficient, and its been over eighteen months now and i still have days when my bp decides for apparently no reason it goes on a high and even during that time i have been the guinea pig for more tablets. At the moment im on felodopine which is a slow release tablet which seems to be doing its job far better than any others i have ‘trialed’.

There are many types of bp medication its just finding the one which has the most beneficial response for yourself.
