I have known about my high blood pressure for ages now, but I am avoiding the doctor. I know that he will put me on high blood pressure pills, and once you are on them, you normally never come off, do you? I have been reading about the various hypertension medication on the web, and see that felodipine is used quite often. What are the side effects of felodipine, and can you ever come off it again? I am only 43 and don't want to be on pills all my life.
