This whole hypertension saga has been a pain in my ass. Not quite literally, but it almost got there. The doc prescribed a medication to control my blood pressure, which I’ve been taking for a little over 30 days now. A little while back I decided to finally read the package insert for the med. It turns out I’m suffering from around 4 of the side effects they mention. Yay. And here I thought I was just feeling wonky.
I went back to the doc this morning to do a stress ekg – just to ease my mind that my heart is ok, which it is just peachy as far as they can tell – and I told her about the side effects, so now she’s prescribed a new medication that I will begin taking tomorrow. Hopefully I won’t experience any side effects from this one.
