This is the second BP medication I have tried. The first one, at a higher dose, caused my teeth to hurt so bad, I thought I had something wrong with them. We cut it down and the tooth pain went away. Due to other issues, I am now trying another medication. Same thing with this one. I have now cut it down, hoping that the tooth pain goes away too.
I've been researching this and can't seem to figure out WHY it would have that effect. I see other people with the same symptom but nothing explaining why. I just find it odd.
Does anyone know???

M-avi! I have been thinking about this & I figured it out. maybe you need a water pill in addition to your BP med. You may be retaning too much fluid because of your HBP. I take Avalide & another water pill Amlodipine 5mg. My Dr. gave it to me after I started Avalide to further lower my BP. Gross but I pee like a racehorse with this additional pill but I used to have swelling in my hands & ankles before I started this pill & now I don't. Maybe that's why your gums are swollen making your teeth hurt. Just an idea but ask your Dr. about a water pill in addition to your BP med. It will probably help a lot! :)
