I'm going to assume the "majority" of guys looking at this HRT forum are the older guys. I'm 51 and been on various BP meds for the past 5 years or so. Currently on Telmisartan 80mg/day keeping me in the 140's/low 90's range. I know this isn't ideal so I'm contemplating adding something else, possibly Amlodipine 5-10mg/day. Question: what's worked for you as far as BP meds? I know more cardio, better eating and drop some weight but that's just not working for me. I'm doing 70-100mg Test E/week fyi.

I’ve settled on Lisinopril after trying lots of them. No real sides and keeps my in the 130’s / 80’s. when I go to the doc I get the white coat hypertension and it spikes to the 160-170s. I suffer from the bp anxiety visit and can feel it spike in the waiting room . To combat this I’ve started keeping a log at home and monitor my bp several times per day and take the overall average . 130s / 80s for me all day on that one bp Med. I’m also on 200mg of TRT per week

I’m taking bystolic 5mgs a day. Bp was 141 over 74 the other day. I feel pretty good on it. I do 30 min of cardio 5 days a week. I eat pretty good also.

Have you ever tried lowering your TRT dose? My doc prescribes 200mg per week too but I have found that's too much for TRT purposes at least for me. Lowering mine down some has improved my BP without the need of any meds.

4 weeks ago I decided to get off the lisinopril and started doing 30-40min of hard cardio (140bpm) 5x per week, just got back from the cardiologist, I was 116/69. I was 150/95 when I started the lisinopril again last year. Cardio for the rest of my life for me.

Hmmm I may have to try this. I’ve been on lisinapril and hydrocloadiazide haha however it’s spelled. My no ranges fro 160/90 to 130/85 depending on the situation. I get bad white coat. And they have to use a thigh cuff as well. For us guys with bigger arms the smaller cuffs will jack it up big time cause it get to tight.. I try and keep it under control. I think the meds really mess with the pumps. Would you agree with that.. even in a low try dose of 200 mg has me elavated. I am pretty sure if I came off off everything my bp would be normal..

I have taken Losartan, and Lisinopril with Amlodipine - Losartan worked great when it was a name brand (not generic) - probably the 6 months after it went generic it worked great, after that my blood pressure went crazy like I wasn't on anything. The pill quality was terrible 6 months after it went generic this was the same time I started having issues. I went on Lisinopril and it worked good (but had the dreaded Lisinopril cough) I was also on Amlodipine, between the two everything was great for about 2 years then had lower leg swelling from the Amlodipine. I am currently taking Valsartan, it's the best one to date, it's the only med I take. I am fit and 54, hopefully I have no problems going forward.
