ACE Inhibitors


Could not use these
 

Pros: Lisinopril is usually the least-expensive, first option for blood pressure treatment. Ramipril is another drug in this class.

Cons: Common side effects include coughing.

Overall: Lisinopril made me so dizzy I couldn't sit up. Ramipril gave me a cough that felt as bad as if I had been battling pneumonia.

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.
