    I had a reaction to latex (gloves) and the hospital SWEARS it was from 10 yrs. of being on Vasotec. They switched me to this pill for high blood pressure maintenance. My numbers read 110/60 now. But, like Chris - I have a lot of swelling - my knee, elbow, hand - ALL on the left side. (I had NO injuries) I think it is making me sick. I have been on it for 1 year. Problems started 6 mos. ago.

    I take Amlodipine along with Lorsartan for high blood pressure. My blood pressure still runs 185 over 90. Does these meds help my condition? I do not think so but my Doc doesn't seem to worried about the pressures.
