As long as my wife has taken Amlodipine, her bp readings always around 120/80 or 130/80. But when she developed ankle edema, my physician stopped that drug and prescribed Cilacar (Clinidipine). After 15 days we checked her bp and found that her bp is around 160.80 or 165/84 or so. For one month she continued Cilacar. Then my doc stopped Cilacar and prescribed Azelsartan 40 mg. Even with that, her bp readings have not come down. So after one month my doc prescribed Metxl 40 mg to be taken in the night. With that drug her diastolic controlled and is showing 75 or 80, but her systolic did not come down. What to do? ## It is possible that she may need to take more than one medication to bring it under control, she may need to combine the MetXL with something else. The FDA lists the typical ...
