HTN: Hi Ashley, Most medications for gradual chronic illnesses need to be titrated to effect to prevent any drastic changes that the body may not be able to handle. How long have you been on these meds that are not working? If you are not satisfied with your doctor, please ask more questions and if he/she cannot answer, please see a cardiologist for proper evaluation. Good luck.
