My hypertension is of the inherited variety:
I suffered a hypertension crisis mid November 2020; to cut a long shaggy dog story short I am on 10mg Amlodopine and 2.5mg Ramipril with 10mg of Atorvastatin for good measure so far with few side effects.
To say that my BP was coming down gradually even grudgingly is no understatement; I threw everything at it: fitness, weight control, diet, kyolic garlic etc. etc. and still the readings remained disconcertingly high not far short of hypertensive crisis levels; I wondered if I had resistant hypertension?
Even though I only drank decaf and enjoyed dark chocolate I decided to totally eliminate caffeine from my diet and stopped measuring my BP for a week to let my system clear of caffeine; as a result my BP plummeted to a much more reasonable 122/64 for example this morning; my resting heart rate has dropped from 75-80 to 60-65.
I don't believe that I am the only individual in the world that responds so adversely to caffeine; perhaps it may be worthwhile you trying to see if it has any significant BP benefits?
