and hypertension meds. Make ones muscle cramp & stiffen ? I tried cordival, I believe thats the name 25mg, that was an awful experience, felt like an 85 year old with Alzheimers walking / shuffling down the street & I'm in my mid 40s. Spoke my cardiologist to give it up. now I'm on metropolol 100mg a day and its happening again, on top of that my bipolar depression med, latuda 40mg gives me the same symptoms, my psychiatrist wrote me a script for benztropine mesylate 1mg to lessen the stiffness, but its not a huge help although it does help. I real don't want my meds to define, me...

Each med works differently in your body and the more medications you take sets you up for having interactions between the medications.  Check with your Dr. re any interaction between your meds.
My hubby takes the same BP med you do and he does not experience muscle cramps.
It is always wise to check with a professional re your medication issues as we are your peers.
