Quick Overview

Download these eight pages on the pros and cons of the various medicines used to lower blood pressure. Details on non-drug approaches to blood pressure control such as diet, supplements and special foods.

Product Description

One in three American adults has high blood pressure, and getting it under control is crucial for preventing strokes, kidney disease and heart attacks.  Because hypertension (high blood pressure) has no symptoms, it is often called the “silent killer.” Hypertension is usually treated with medications, but finding the right drug or combination of drugs can involve trial and error.

Every medication has side effects, but they don’t affect everyone equally. The 8-page guide offers information on the pros and cons of each type of medicine along with details on non-drug approaches to lowering blood pressure with diet, supplements and special foods such as chocolate, pomegranates and beets. The guide is downloadable only.

    Grapefruit and red beets can be used to lower blood pressure. All prescription medications have side effects and are often touted to benefit various conditions which they don’t.

    Went to the doctor’s yesterday for bp check, and my regular doctor was not in. The physician who was standing in for him recommended that we change my bp medicine because he said that Lisinopril is not a good medicine for African-Americans. He went on to explain why it is not a good medicine and also explained the side effects that it has caused in people. I have been taking Lisinopril for over 10 yrs. with no problem but now that I have done my research I see that all he was tell me is true. So I just don’t understand why my doctor had not informed me on this?

  3. Lisinopril cough same with similar meds

    Discovered I had A-V block and had a pacemaker put in June 2016. Prescribed Lisinopril and coughed a lot. Then prescribed Losartan and same cough occurs. Met a nurse at a dentist appointment and she told me her mother had same cough no matter what med prescribed. So I went back to my DR. and asked to be put back on the original Lisinopril because it was much less expensive. I figured if I coughed no matter which med I was on I might as well take the least expensive. So far so good…

  4. Pristiq

    I was on Pristiq for a few months until I began noticing how miserable I was. I was never happy, wondered what suicide would be like which I had NEVER thought of.

    I am also on Metropotol and am wondering after reading comment above if after all this time being on it if I can get off of it is I would generally feel happier and more content.

    Can others share their experience with Pristiq (hope I’m spelling it correctly) for depression and Metropotol for BP?

  5. Lisinopril & Hair loss

    I’m 41 and was prescribed 10mg of Lisinopril. I had a cough for about 1 week. Then it subsided but the med didn’t work so dr. upped it to 20 mg, which wasn’t consistent in lowering my bp. So he then combined it with 12.5 hctz. After a month my hair was falling out in bundles. When I told the doctor he said my hair loss wasn’t a side effect. But upon researching I found that it has an ingredient that can cause severe hair loss & baldness. Needless to say, I’ve changed doctors to one who actually listens. I’m now on Amlodipine besylat 2.5 mg (norvasc) which also can cause hair loss. I’m frustrated, which doesn’t help my blood pressure. Helpful advice is needed. I don’t want to be a pharma guinea pig.

    I do not like Amlodipine at all. It is strange, but I now wake up with hand and ankle swelling. It is very odd because every time I wake up in the morning I am all swollen and uncomfortable, which only used to heppen after a long day of being on my feet with Amlodipine. It was never a problem, until now.

    My doctor told me I had a side effect of lisinopril with coughing. At first I didn’t believe it but had other people tell me of their problems with the medication. She said this should be out of my system in a week not to
    take it anymore. She gave me another medicine Losartan but it also has side effects of coughing so don’t know if I should continue with it. The cough is really bad but maybe it will out of my system next week.
