Hi @lilyoaws — Actually I've been on the same blood pressure meds for over 25 years when I participated in a heart study at Mayo Clinic Rochester and they determined that my high blood pressure was caused by hypertension and switched me to Spironolactone and Hydrochlorothiazide which is in the diuretic class. My blood pressure has been fairly stable while on the medications even when I had my 2 episodes of PMR and was on prednisone for a few years.
