I have suffered from high BP since 2006. Until 6 months ago too bendroflumazide and candesartan in low doses. I was advised to stop the bendroflumazide and continue with candesartan. This did not control BP and the dose was increased and I could not tolerate it at 16 mg due to serious joint pains. The dose was halved and in addition I was given 10 mg of lercandipine. I suffered swelling in my joints and legs and ultimately could not tolerate it. For a short while after I remain on 8 mg of candesartan.
The swelling in my left leg did not alleviate and following an MRI scan I was found to have Sonk in my left leg .. ( blood marrow swelling ) with no medical reason and yet prior to tablets I was very physically fit and well with no injury. I have now had knee surgery to alleviate the symptoms of Sonk. Does anyone have any views or similar experiences or advice on BP control in my circumstances .

The medication I found that worked best for me, without causing crazy side effects, is Labetalol, I am not sure if it is available for you, but you may want to ask your doctor about it.

The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dry mouth, headache, hypotension, and increased urination.

What other medications have you tried?
