Anybody using beta blockers to control hypertension? I'm a normal weight, good diet, lots of exercise T1 52 yrs old. My BP is running 145/85 or higher (waking) when not on meds. Higher when at work.
I tried ACE inhibitors and got a terrible cough. I tried ARB's and got very sore legs and back and stuffy head. My doc now wants me on a diuretic. I'm convinced (thru testing) that much of my hypertension is work related. I think perhaps a beta blocker will help. I'm not thrilled with taking a diuretic while training and exercising a lot.
