Beta Blockers


Atenolol/Lisinopril

Pros: Both are good at lowering bp Lisinopril protects the kidney function and Atenolol is good for controlling chest pain,

Cons: Having to take one in the morning and one at night the Atenolol will make you sleepy

Overall: Taking the both of them have kept my bp down for years and I am doing better then I have in a while.

Diuretics


 

Pros: Swelling in the legs to the point that they hurt and your skin feels like it is going to bust and it is on fire

Cons: having to ware a pad or a pair of depends because the water pill has got you going to give you the relief that you need to keep the water off of you

Overall: There have been a couple of times that I have forgot to take my water pills and I have notice a big difference in how much I retain in my legs and feet because I start to get to where I can not walk and I start having a hard time breathing.
