Medications doing nothing to lower blood pressure

Q: I have been on Lerbex XL 4 mg 1 twice a day, Amlodipoine 10mg 1 once a day and Ramipril 10 mg once a day since July 2010. I’m still taking them and my BP is still 215/ 110!! They are not working yet and I’m still given them…why?

A: If you are not seeing a kidney specialist, you need to ask your doctor for a referral. You are on three different types of medicine and your blood pressure is not in control. You may have a kidney problem. Make an appointment to discuss this further with your doctor. To learn more about difficult to control blood pressure go to this page at the Harvard Health Site.
