This answer was rated:

I am 65. Healthy except and labile bp.
My doctors keep giving me ACE inhibitors which aren't controlling it.
Why don't they try ARBs or Beta blockers? Are they out of fashion?
I used to be on Losacar and it was more under control than now.
Note - thiazides make me dizzy.
Note - I keep moving so I get a new doctor every year or so.
. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.
They should be trying a diuretic or a calcium channel blocker if the ACE inhibitors aren't working
