High blood pressure medication and tinnitus

    My tinnitus came out in the process of changing my high blood pressure medication from exclusively
    calcium channel blocker to a combination approach which included diurectics, beta-blocker and
    calcium channel blocker. I am not suggesting any casual relationship but i think there is an element
    of a correlational relationship here. Now, the diurectics is off and i have been feeling a lot
    better. Others could call this 'imaginary' but my own experience has been that my T has improved
    significantly upon the cessation of hydrochloridediazide.

    Yesterday, a doctor in the neurology department suggested to use blood vessel dilator to help the
    blood circulation in my head. Currently i am using 5mg of Plendil and 5 mg of a beta=blocker. I
    wonder if i just sticked to 10 mg of Plendil or calcium channel blocker only and do away with the
    beta=blocker, i could increase the blood vessel dilating effect of my hbp medication in order to
    help my T.

    Thanks for the views.

    My view is that you should have your dosage of medications adjusted by a doctor that is familiar
    with all of the medications you take and your medical history. Please don't rely on the advice of
    people on the internet when it comes to medical matters.

    I know you have said that it costs a lot for you to see a physician but it could cost you a lot more
    if you mess with your medications and cause some sort of medical episode to occur. It seems like you
    do see a number of different physicians so I would make sure that they all were aware of everything
    the other doctor is doing.

    Right! I listened to an "internet doctor" once. JUST once. I'll never trust doctor O.G.

    Thank you. But i will bring the points back to my doctor and let them make the decision for me. My
    doctor has already adjusted my regimen into a combination of two, which will unlikely produce T.

    That's a good one.

    Unfortunately on this ng there are several doctors that give medical advice to people they don't
    examine and the danger is that people that are unable or unwilling to see their own physicians to
    get a real medical opinion might actually take what is written here as a relevant medical opinion
    with respect to their case.
