METOPROLOL SUCC ER, DILTIAZEM XT, SERTRALINE HCL, and DOXAZOSIN MESYLATE. It may seem like an overabundance of medications, but keep in mind that my doctor spent almost 5 years getting this combination right. I now have consistent readings of 120/80. That's down from 180/115. I have always watched my salt intake.

I am on Diovan 160mg a day. I never really had high blood pressure just fluctuating, but my doctor thought it would help preserve my kidneys.

I take Diovan HCT and it is the best one I have found that works for me. I cut out some of my salt intake but I do use grinder sea salt.

I have high blood pressure and take Cosaar. It really works for me. I have had HBP for several years and have been on several different meds, but finally ended up with Cosaar. It is what works best for me.
