    I was just looking at some literature of the 2 drugs mentioned and they were related to diabetes conditions. THen you mentioned, no diabetes, so that's a stumper.

    The normal heart rate is 60 to 100 Beats, Ive never had issue with that and normally reside in the 65 to 75 range. But Im on this 5 mg amlodipine daily, if I work out in the heat (yard mow) or go riding in the heat, come back inside and check BP within about 10 minutes after slight relaxing, I drop to 119 to 127 BP (which is good).

    But I don't stay that way, once I cool way down, I pop back up in the 150's or higher. Seems I have the DNA of a Lizard, I need a lot of heat and activity.

    The Doctor also gave me lisinopril but I hate that stuff(refuse to take it), so doctor says can issue something different(after they got the Hint), I say why not double the Amlodipine, since it agrees with me.

    But I find it strange how heat and activity, BP has such drastic difference(lower BP), than just lounging around in the air conditioning(higher BP).

    Yeah, I hear ya, and I stopped eating Chocolate and ice-cream , salted lay potato chips, and instantly dropped 10 lbs in a week. Im looking for another 10lb drop, to around 200 lb.

    Just like me you may need to search out a new Dr. My GP has been great in every other aspect of my health and I could have all the time I needed to discuss things. But for whatever reason he could not get the BP meds correct. I ended up with a friends cardiologist at the very top of the ladder and he got me in great condition with just a couple adjustments in a short time period. Ask everyone you know and can depend on who they use for their BP meds and discuss their experience with them. Do not be afraid to get a 2nd opinion from another Dr. I still kept my GP for everything else but the BP stuff. Good luck.

    THats how I got the amlodipine, a different doctor. I havent been to a doctor in many many many years ( i didnt even have a doctor), so this pandemic gave me time, to do this. Im only suppose to take one pill aday (5mg) but have been taking a pill and a half, and its better (my results), the max dose is 10 mg, or 2 pills a day, which Im eventually going to have some discussion doing that, unless they say its really a bad idea.

    Other wise, I might as well get the wifes medicine (which is a 2 drug combo), of amolidipine and bentrlsomething. But I prefer the single drug if I can get away with it.

    The doctor who gave me the amodipine, I was talking about side effects I didnt want(anything that slows physical responsivness) or (vaques the thought process), and he pretty much said, you just have to try it, cause every drug effects different people , different ways.

    somebody mentioned cutting that lisinopril in half, and that does help, if I had to take it. I tried it for a test.
