Side Effects of Blood Pressure Med Counteracted Using This Herb

Did you develop insomnia after starting on blood pressure medications? Then you’re not alone. One of the most common side effects of a class of drugs for high blood pressure called beta blockers is insomnia.

Many people also suffer insomnia as symptoms of high blood pressure.

Other sleep disturbances are present as well, but insomnia is one of the worst because it perpetuates the high blood pressure cycle.

But researchers are proving once again that a well- known herbal remedy that has been safely used for decades is helping to counteract the effects.

Patients taking beta blockers to reduce their high blood pressure have found, with increasing severity, that an irritating and potentially deadly side effect almost always comes along with the limited pressure-lowering benefits: insomnia

Recent studies show that more than 20 million Americans suffer from insomnia, or the inability to fall asleep or stay asleep.

Sleep disruption isn’t just annoying, it can perpetuate the cycle of high blood pressure, locking the patient in a never-ending battle.

However, a safe and well-known alternative is gaining credibility in mainstream medical circles for its proven abilities to help people fall asleep naturally.

Melatonin is the chemical our body produces naturally throughout the day as it uses up serotonin. The daytime chemical- serotonin- breaks down into the nighttime chemical- melatonin- and it is the nighttime chemical that tells the brain and body that it is time to sleep.

Deficiencies in either chemical can spell trouble for anyone, and beta blockers are found to interfere with the process. Less naturally available melatonin in the bloodstream at night means a harder time falling-and staying- asleep.

Melatonin is readily available on most health food and even grocery store shelves and has been proven time and again to be safe and effective at easing the body into a natural sleep pattern, without developing dependencies, and completely safely.

It has a half-life of only about 45 minutes or so, so it can be taken right before bed and wears off very quickly after sleep begins. This, and the fact that it is found naturally in the body already, contribute to it not being something a person could become dependent upon.

  1. The doctors had me on a calcium channel blocker and then added Carvedilol ,(a Beta- Blocker) . I soon had insomnia and complained to my doctor that I couldn’t sleep. The doctor told me to take Benadryl for sleep. I also had prostrate problems which my X doctor knew about and I found out the hard way you can’t take benadryl if you have an enlarged prostrate. I could not urinate and almost had to go to the hospital emergency room. Because of the insomnia I became depressed. The doctor prescribed an anti-deperession drug which had a rebound effect and made me worse with suicidal thoughts. I called the doctors office on friday afternoon and told the receptionist I was worse and having suicidal thoughts. She said she would leave the message with the doctor ,as he was with a patient,and he would call me back. He didn’t call and the following Sunday ,after a suicide attempt,I had to admit myself into Linclon Trail Health aand Rehap for treatment. Friends,don’t trust your doctor! i later had to visit a psychiatrist who sucessfully,and slowly, took me off the Beta-blockers and some of the other medication I didn’t need that the doctors had put me on. I later discovered from my studies that the Beta-Blocker should be started slowly at only 3 mg twice daily to see how the patient reacts to them. My -so called doctor -had me on 12.5 Mg twice daily . It was no wonder i had such a reaction. With help ,i have gotten off most of the drugs the doctor had me on,it took 4 years to undo the damage the doctor had caused.

  2. Christian, my understanding is that melatonin is a hormone, NOT an herb. This needs to be made very clear to your readers, because taking hormones in an unbalanced fashion can be quite dangerous!
