In brief: BP med side effects

Some people are more responsive than others to certain blood pressure medications.
Norvasc, (amlodipine) losartan, hydrochlorothiazide are 3 of the most well tolerated medications used for blood pressure control. There are a few others commonly used that could be added to these 3meds or replace 1 if needed. If you think you are having side effects or feeling back you should seek medical care.
