He has asked me to stop the amlodipine 5mg that I take every day for high blood pressure. We are giving it a week and then I shall see him again and decide what to do. If this improves he will put me on a different BP tablet. Circulation is fine. Given me some cortisone cream for the rash on my legs that has appeared. I will keep you updated. Thanks for all your interesting and helpful responses. Have a good day. Ann.
