Diagnosed over a year ago w/ MS. Was allergic to Copaxone & placed on beta-interferons three months ago. Pre-hypertensive condition has now escalated to high blood pressure routinely. Within last week, waking BP has been 158/109, 143/104, 139/100 despite having lost weight. Concern over possible prescribing of BP meds. Know that family history shows adverse effects from cholesterol-lowering statins. What BP meds will work?
