After a long fight another GP in my practise has just prescribed me 8mg of Amias (candesartan). My blood pressure when taken by the GP Was 170/90. My blood pressure when taken at home varies between 155-175.
My question is how long does the medication take to work? I have been takening this for a week and bp has come down to an average of 160 but can spike in the evening up to 175. I have side effects from the high blood pressure, bad headaches pulsating tinnitus low urine output, although every doctor has told me that there are no side effects.
I would be grateful for any advice
