Its good to know that someone else also has a problem with bp. My internal
medicine doctor has had me on Aldomet. I have been increased to 1,500mg a day
and still no help.
I will see the endocrinologist today for the first time. The only reason why
I was put on Aldomet was because I was trying to get pregnant. I have now
decided to put that on hold to concentrate on my pump therapy and severe
hypertension. I am sure I am going to be put on something else. There are so
many bp meds out there. If this is really causing you problems then I would
suggest trying something else.
I do know that when I started the aldomet, it took me almost two weeks to get
used to it. I was extremely tired, irritable and sometimes sick to my stomach
with a headache but it went away within two weeks.
So I guess I would try it for a couple of weeks and after the two week period
then if you are still experiencing problems I would contact the endo.
This is just my opinion YMMV.
Pumping 10 days and loving it! :)
