I've been hold a BP at 150/115 and I've been feeling very bad or the weekend. I finally got so mad and called the doctors office and told them to have him call me. I requested that he put me on something else for my high blood pressure. He called in a some Norvasc 5 mg. It's the safest blood pressure med you can take, He said. Is there anyone else taking this med and are you feeling better? I hope everyone is doing great and keep up the faith. I have to get better by June to take my classes.
The kids came over this weekend and we had a blast. We made bows and arrows and we eat lunch outside because the wealther was great. I'll talk to you all soon and I'm sorry I haven't been responding much my computer when it heats up cuts off. God bless you all and happy days are here. Love you all in Jesus name.

You know you're wired when...
Muggers want your ICD, not your wallet.
Hang in there; it does get better every day!

Hi James, I have taken Norvasc 5 mg for about 3 years. It was added to atenolol when my BP was not well controlled. My PCP is attempting to get me off atenolol completely because I do not like the way it makes me feel, so she just increased me to 10 mg Norvasc daily. If my BP drops significantly - which it has - she will begin to titrate the atenolol and eventually get me off of it. I take the 10 mg. Norvasc once a day in the morning. Hope this helps you, my friend. Good thoughts and more prayers for you.
