Any good medication to recommend to treat both migraine and high blood pressure. Plendil at 5mg
seems to do the job. Any others? How about the combination between a calcium channel blocker and a
beta-blocker.

Betablockers can worsen migraines.

in me. Without beta-blocker, calcium channel blocker is less effective. Any remedy?

Please give me a hand, brother. I will discuss your advice/suggestion with my doctor here in China.

Currently my bp regimen is composed of 10mg of Zestril, 2.5 mg of Plendil and 25 mg of beta-locker
soc. I believe the last one is long acting, as i was told.

The bp has been maintained at roughly 121-140/75-90. What distresses me is beta-blocker does hinder
erection. I experienced this many times before and thus i never used it. Now, i have no choice, as
without beta-blocker the upper pressure is way too high 175-180. What is the remedy here? Should I
increase the amount of Zestril and Plendil and leave out beta-blocker? Should I introduced some
diurectics into the regimen? i know it would work with Zestril but i feel a bit hesitant, as i am
not sure whether it was because of diurectics OR the department 'away from' calcium channel blocker
a few months ago that led to my tinnitus. My T came out in the process of my changing medication
from calcium channel blocker to diurectis and ACE inhibitor. Now, with Plendil on, my T has been
much improved. I think the reason why it has improved is because of blood dilating effect from
Plendil. Could I give a tablet of FLUNARIZINE HYDROCHLORIDE into the regimen? It was given to me by
my doc for my migrane. It works well with Zestril and solves my constipation problem!!! I could
still leaves that 2.5 Plendil there in the morning. Currently, i am taking 5mg of FLUNARIZINE
HYDROCHLORIDE only before going to bed as a life saver for migraine that may pop up with a loud buzz
at the middle of the night. By the way, is FLUNARIZINE hydrochloride a calcium channel blocker? Can
it be used like any other BP medication? I like that medicine. Is it a long acting one?

Thank you in advance for your reply.

But without BB, Plendil or other calcium channel blockers are not effective. So that is a catch 22
here. I have to increase the amount of Plendil to above 5 mg to do the job. Would it be hard for
the heart?

Shouldn't be.
