I hope that everyone had a great holiday and happy new year. After getting up to 20 mg on Lexapro, I have decided to start coming off of it. It didn’t do anything positive for my constant dizziness and I was getting extremely bloated, with acid reflux issues and my ears were ringing much more so. I gave it a full 14 weeks and I am very disappointed. I am weaning off and I have been much dizzier, especially in the early part of the day, which is always my worst time anyway.
Now to my question - has anyone had any experience with Atacand? I have been on Verapamil with limited success (I was more active but still dizzy if that makes sense) but I was retaining water pretty badly. I normally have low blood pressure and the Verapamil really didn’t make it any lower, which was good and why the Dr thinks maybe Atacand could be a good next try. I cant do Propranolol due to my reactive hypoglycemia, which has become so much worse since this whole MAV stuff started, and my already low BP. I have an RX for 4 mg to take once a day in the evening, which I understand is quite low, but the thought is go low for starters. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Also, any thoughts on whether I should be off Lexapro completely prior to starting?
Thank you and I hope that some of you are having more success with treatments!
