I was diagnosed with high blood pressure at the end of September I started taking Amilodipine 10mg but this drug on its own did not lower my bp very much I started @ 160-170/100 I was then added Ramipril 1.25 - 5mg but I felt bad with headaches stiff neck and feeling dizzy and vagueness. I was then put on Candesartan currently on 8 mg bp is now 140-150/85-90 but I'm still struggling with what I think are side effects bouts of feeling dizzy almost constant tinnitus occasional headache and general tiredness. I'm not sure if the drugs are the problem or maybe my bp is not low enough yet. I have reduced Amilodipine to 5mg with a view to remove it altogether to see if this drug is causing my problems. My GP is not that helpful I had to push him to change to Candesartan but 3 months on I've only had a few days were I have felt OK so it is started to get me down.
