Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (3 months ago):

  • Two years ago while still taking atenolol since 1994, my blood pressure increased from a relatively normal 120/80 to 140/80, so my doctor put me on Lisinopril, but that wasn't working, then after my physical a year ago, my doctor switched it to amlodipine besylate, and since then my blood pressure is now ranging 145/90 something, with a heart rate in the 90's, when it was consistently in the 60's.
