There : There is a lot that is not known here. Don't know how long you have been on a trial of the current medication regimen. Don't know how high your blood pressure is running or if you have any congestive heart failure. Would recommend that you call your doctor or his / her medical staff to pose this question.

Agreed : Agreed with dr. Fowler. Please limit sodium/ salt intake. If you eat more than 1500 mg of sodium per day, the medications stop working.
