I did beta blockers as well, honestly talk with your doc and explain the situation. There are other options out there for you as far as bp meds. Also the underlying reason you're on the meds, do you have options such as diet and exercise to help get that in check?

Yes been working on that too, BP medication was to help in the interim. Guess I will need to switch it up soon. Thanks ! This is helpful.

Just another yes vote on different bp meds. Many choices. Bbs didn’t work for me.
