I went to the doctor with a cold and was told my blood pressure was high
160/90 and put on benicar. It made me sick so the doctor added
amlodipine besylate. I still felt sick.Was taken off the benicar and added
lisinopril. Feeling better but by blood pressure has gone up to 195/65.
Why is my blood pressure going up with the medication?
