Hello .. So I have stage 1 high blood pressure it's usually 146/90 maybe higher if I'm in pain since I have fibro... So the first med that was given to me nine months ago was 5 mg of amlodipine well I notice that my heart beats fast and I have palpitations... So I told my dr and he switches my meds today to car cardevilol. The lowest dose twice a day but when I came home I looked up the medication and it has nothing but bad reviews reading all the side effect scared me. I'm stressed out about taking the meds has anyone tried this medication before?

hi jasflower. all meds have s/e. they always put the nasties in as a default. remember your doc has prescribed it to treat your condition. if i listened to every bad review on my meds, well i'd be dead!!! relax, do some deep breathing and take ya meds. stay away from google. have not had this med. i do perindopril, spiractin, etc. etc!!!! take care.
