I don't think that would make a difference. I take risperdal twice a day as it is already and two antidepressants twice a day. He said you
can be depressed and sad at the same time.

That just stinks... I think that was the power of suggestion. I hope you are able to get back on track soon

I'm so glad that your nephew did respond to you, and that he told you he loved you. I hope that the quote from Carrie Fisher will help his understanding of BP, at least a tiny bit. Maybe it will inspire him to seek out more information...

I feel so badly that you are feeling out of control. I wish you were feeling better, my friend
I can understand why your pdoc might have reservations about giving you too many meds because of some of the side effects, but I wish he could do something to help more...

You are right- issues with blood pressure are more common as people age.

I hope you have a better day today, Bobby. Love to you (((HUGS)))

My father has high blood pressure and they have him on 3 different meds to control his readings. He just turned 80. They want his blood pressure to be 120/80. This last pill addition has brought it down to where his doctor wants it at and now he feels like a zombie, very fatigued. When I was there last week, he would have to stop and take breaks while doing walks which was unusual for him. Maybe your blood pressure medication is making you fatigued?
Just a thought????

I think it is stroke fatigue. I have been tired for a long time but after the stroke there was a real difference

I am calming down but I am really depressed. Lately at times I am angry/ I get triggered easily.

That is not uncommon with depression... not that knowing that makes matters any easier

I know that MS is the main reason for my fatigue, but I'm sure that some of my meds don't help. But I am used to my meds, having been on them so long. I think they mostly effect me when something else is going on.

This bad patch has been going on for a long time this time. I hope you get some relief soon, Bobby

yesterday i was freaking out. I hadn't heard from one of my friends and started to exaggerate that she was dead. finally called her and she was fine but over busy. I shed a few tears/ I haven't cried in years.
