My father had a very high blood pressure just 2 days ago and went to the doctor. His BP was monitored and lowered with some medication. Right now, the doctor prescribed him Twynsta which I believe is used to try to widen the arteries.
He's been taking the medicine for a day and he says the side effects are quite heavy. He feels weak and has cold sweat, and has chest pains. I don't know the rest, but he just generally feels unwell. I am concerned that those are not the side effects of the medication as prescribed.
The doctor also mentioned to not take BP measurements during this time although I do not see the reason why he does not recommend BP testing. My parents doesn't seem to be so knowledgeable about the problem and I am wondering if any one has any thoughts on this?
