Agree with what?: Are you having drug interactions? What other side effects? Many people who can find no class of medication to treat their problem, often are not experiencing side effects of the medication, but anticipation of trouble as result of anxiety. Ace inhibitors (lisinopril) are very well tolerated, but if side effect, arb is good option. Norvasc (amlodipine) (dhp-ccb) is also well tolerated, with few side effects.
