This is my first post but I have replied to others.
I have high BP which stubbornly refuses to budge below a certain level. I take 10 mg of ramipril and 2.5mg of amlodipine. The amlodipine was originally at 10 mg but when the ramipril was increased, the amlodipine caused awful side effects. My face turned bright red, I swelled up like an elephant, had ice cold hands and panic attacks.
I am a vegetarian, non-smoker and walk 10000 steps a day for fitness. I get out of breath very easily.
Has anyone had any success by adding supplements to their prescribed meds? I have acupuncture which brings my BP to a normal level but within an hour it peaks again. I have read about health supplements but wondered if anyone had tried them.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
