Controlling side effects of high blood pressure medications.

Q:  I’m currently taking medication for high blood pressure. Since I was diagnosed with HBP I started noticing that my face would get real red when in a warm room. I also find myself hot and having to have a desk fan on at work all time. Is that normal, if so what can I do to control this uncomfortable situation?

A: Enough details were not given.  Facial flushing is a possible side effect of some drugs that are used to treat high blood pressure and high cholesterol.  Your symptoms could also be related to menopause or thyroid disease.  You should discuss this with your doctor.
