Shridhar Says:


I am male age 73 & on hypertension medicine for last 11 years.I was taking combination medicine of 5 mg amlodipine plus 50 mg metoprolol for 6 years.BP used to be in the range of 150/80.I had undergone angioplasty 8 years ago and have been also taking suitable blood thinners etc.Recently due to some kidney problem, nephrologist suggested some additional medicines.He also changed BP medicine dosage to ONLY 25 mg metoprolol without any amlodipine..This caused very SEVERE side effects like drowsiness/ tiredness/breathlessness/panting/feeling of heavy pressure on chest etc.(I could not even bend or walk 10 paces without breathlessness/panting).I am informed that I should revert to combination of amlodipine 5 mg and metoprolol 50 mg - both in extended release form.Is any such medicine for BP available and will it suit me? Please advice.Thanks and Regards.
