I'm really sorry, it's been such a long time ago, I can't remember which blood pressure med did that...I've racked my brain, but it won't come to me. I do know that I was switched to Atenolol after that, and stayed on that one until after my last pregnancy, which was in 1996. At the end of that pregnancy, I had severe eclampsia and my blood pressure was way out of control, so I had to be on 3 really strong BP meds for about a year. Eventually I was weaned off of 2 and ended up on Lisinopril. That's the one I'm still on today at only 10 mg. each morning.
What BP med are you on? Have you tried googling the side effects of it? I'll bet if I hear the name of the med I had problems with, I will remember it.
And just to offer some encouragement, when I finally got to a very low dose of Prednisone, and was able to start exercising at Curves, my hourglass figure came right back...in some ways better than before, and boy is that a pick-me-up for the confidence and self esteem. I'm sure that'll be the case for you too. Just hang in there.
