Can anyone throw any light as to why, after 15 years being on the same amount of medication for high blood pressure, I've just had a letter from the doctor as follows - Have adjusted your indapamide 1.5mg to 2.5mg once a day to try and reduce the overspend on medication that the CCG and the practice is experiencing. The medication is equivalent and there are no additional blood pressure lowering effects from the new dose or additional side effect profile.
Have just had my yearly BP check up - 136/80 which is not bad as I suffer stress going to the surgery. Usually around 125/75. Cholesterol over a year ago 7.8 but I was told no action needed when I phoned up! Saw the doctor last week and had a cholesterol test done but no mention about altering my medication until the letter arrived a few days later. Has anyone else experienced this?
