I have taken Avapro for about 7 years for HBP . A year ago I was prescribed an antidepressant which seemed to worsen my Ataxia. After 6 months I came off the antidepressant but Ataxia was still worsening. I decided to try going off Avapro as blood pressure was going ok. Dr. agreed if well monitored . Well immediately the Ataxia improved. A dramatic improvement. Just took an Avapro as my BP had gone high and I was concerned about it being so high during the night. Within half an hour Ataxia returned and is currently severe. I have no doubt that Avapro is now worsening my Ataxia , I now wonder just how many years it contributed to the Ataxia???
