I've bee on this meds for 7 months and it was working great. Averaging 116/73. But all of a sudden out of the blue it spiked and my last reading was 148/82. May not be very high for you but a huge jump for me and my face is constantly hot and burning feeling and head aches... Dr doubled my dose a week ago but still burning in the face. I haven't taken my bp in almost a week because I freak out and have anxiety problems making it worse. I go to dr in 2 days so well see how it goes then.. Why wouldy meds seem to stop working? Nothing in my diet has changed. I did lose 16 lbs.. Wouldn't that help? The manufacturer changed for my meds but they should be same right?

Is it possible to withdraw from blood pressure meds, either tapering or cold turkey while keeping your blood pressure at a normal level? Or will I have to keep taking them for the rest of my life? Any thoughts?
Does anyone know if Prednisone, Metoprololor or Amiodipine have any side effects like heartburn from taking it on an empty stomach? Just trying to narrow the pills that I am taking to find out which pills I might have to take on a full stomach to avoid this one annoying side effect....
