Anti Hypertensive drugs cause constipation
Asked Apr 7, 2008, 10:29 PM
I have been on nefidipine over a number of years due to essential hypertension. However for the past few days my BP has gone up and Doctors have prescribed the following medications.
Amlodipine-10mg OD at 8 AM
Atenlol-50mg OD at 8 AM
Telmisartan-40mg OD at 7 PM
Prazosin Hydrochloride-2.5 mg at bed time.
Right from the time I started on this combination therapy , I am suffering from severe constipation. Earlier I never had a problem of constipation. Is this development due to Amlodipine or due to Telmisartan. What remedy do I have to overcome this problem of constipation.
