I have had high blood pressure for a number of years, I was successfully treated with Micardis for an number of years but I became resistive and the drug became ineffective. Since that time I have been prescribed a number of medications, some have been effective for a short time and then they become ineffective or side effects are too severe to tolerate, and I have even had my kidneys ablated and now here we are again at a point where we are beginning to cover the same old ground with a different medication. My blood pressure is often above 190 /90 and medication might reduce this for a short time
