    reaction to blood pressure meds
    akeene72 posted:
    My husband was recently diagnosed with high blood pressure. He has been taking his meds (Lininopril 10mg & Amlodipine 5mg) 1 each every day now for about 7 weeks. He's been saying that lately he feels like he's "on fire" inside and occasionally he says that his arm goes numb. Is this normal?

    Welcome Akeene72,

    For drug information you search here: Drugs A-Z

    But ultimately you or your husband needs to call the doctor on this one, he/she is best to answer this question.
    Everyone reacts differently to drugs, it may or may not be normal. Follow up with the doc to be sure.
    Good Luck and Good health, Chrissy WebMD Community Staff
