High blood pressure is dangerous, but some blood pressure medications can result in guaranteed exhaustion.

Is your blood pressure medicine making you gain weight and feel exhausted all the time?  Blood pressure medications called beta-blockers are notorious for causing patients to gain weight; in fact I believe any time a patient is started on a beta-blocker for the reason of controlling their blood pressure they need to understand that they will gain a minimum of 20 pounds in the next 6 months. Beta-blockers block thyroid function as well as slow your heart rate and depress your response to exercise.

The use of Angiotensin receptor blockers results in excellent blood pressure control with minimum side-effects, as well as they protect your kidneys and reduce your blood sugar.
