I've been taking Felodipine and Indapamide for 6 months. They were prescribed by a Hypertensive Specialist for high bp. Both of these prescriptions are non refillable through pharmacy. I have no intention of returning to see this doctor. There are maybe 10 tablets of each for the next 10 days or so before they run out. Is there a way to gradually reduce these meds so they can be stopped altogether? Any information is more than welcome.

Why are you no longer going to see that doctor?

If you have high blood pressure and do not get it under control, you could be risking a heart attack, stroke, or congestive heart failure, any of which could be fatal, according to NIH records.

As someone that has experienced congestive heart failure, please allow me to state that passing out in the ER and waking up later full of tubes is not an enjoyable experience.

Now, I understand that you may not want to see that doctor, which is fine, but it would be best to just switch to a different doctor. Even a PCP can treat most blood pressure issues, if you don't want to see a specialist.

I was put on felodipine ex 10 mg by my dr about 4 months ago. Since them I have been so totally tired, no energy and feeling so depressed. I am 71 years old and although my bp has gone down, I am feeling so weak and tired that I am laying around and sleeping all day long. Thinking that this med is too strong for me.
