I have been on atenolol for close to 20 years. My bp has been creeping up so my dr. added lisinopril and it gave me bad stomach burning/acid reflux. We tried Atacand-same side effects. Tried HCTZ-same side effects. My BP has gone up to 160/93 on the atenolol alone. I did take .125 mg xanax and that brought it down to 140/77. I am a very anxious person and I don't know how much of my hbp is fueled by anxiety. I get nervous just taking my bp at home and it is high in the drs. office as well. I do have a strong family history of hbp. Has anyone had similar problems with the above drugs? I've had one person tell me to try Azor--she had stomach aches with 8 other drugs before settling on Azor. Any help or advice would be appreciated.
