Zoladex and high blood pressure

HI

I HAD A RP FOUR YEARS AGO AT THE CHRISTY IN MANCHESTER. MY OP WAS A SUCCESS AND I SAILED THROUGH WITH NO PROBLEM.

I NOW HAVE A RISING PSA NOW AT 0.2.

I AM DUE TO HAVE RT IN TWO WEEKS WITH 25 WEEKS AT 2 Gy

AGE 70 AND FIT AND HEALTHY OTHERWISE

HAVE BEEN ON ZOLADEX FOR THREE MONTHS WITH NO PROBLEM.

HOWEVER NOW HAVE HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE, 200/80. I AM TAKING ATENOLOL AS USUAL, ABOUT TEN YEARS. MY DOC HAS ADDED RAMIPRIL WHICH HAS HAD ABSOLUTELY NO EFFECT, I AM WORRIED THAT I COULD HAVE A STROKE.

I AM SEEING THE DOC ON TUESDAY.

QUESTION IF YOU HAVE HAD THIS PROBLEM WHICH MEDS WERE YOU ON THAT LOWERED YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE AND WAS OK TO TAKE WITH THE ZOLADEX?

THANKS

HiSorry I didn't realise I had caps on.

All I want to know is if anyone is/was on Zoladex with high blood pressure, what bp meds they were on to reduce

Thanks

Thanks for that.

Saw the Doc this morning and he will increase the Ramipril once he has seen a blood test to check Kidney function.
