Congestive Heart Failure-Diastolic Dysfunction)

Dr., I was just diagnosed with CHF (Diastolic Dysfunction) and some thickening of the heart. I'm 50 yr old African American female w/other medical issues (asthma, diverticulitis, sinus disease). I’m working on losing weight (was 277 in Jan, now 230) and understand that some BP medications do not work as well for African Americans as they do for Caucasians and Asians.  I would like to know what BP meds have the least side effects - I seem to be prone to having debilitating problems with side effect of my current medication (Bystolic and Benicar) as well as previous BP meds (Diovan and Cardizem) even though, I had been on the latter for over 3 years for HBP.   I also understand that CHF (Diastolic Dysfunction) may be reversible is the hypertension is properly treaded; could you confirm?  I'm feeling very defeated and lost.  Thank you.
