Anyone on high blood pressure meds THAT don't raise your Blood sugar?

I'm on 40 mg. of accupril and 320 mg. of Diovan these are the highest. I suspect Accupril is raising my blood sugar because when I take it I feel a surge of energy like when I eat something,I have hypoglycemia.I guess I'm affraid to stop taking accupril since it's doing that to my bloos sugar what kind of mess would I be without it.Well it raises my blood sugar when I'm weak and I wouldn't have that crutch anymore to make me feel better.I've told the doctors this and they say nothing,I don't know what to subsitute accupril with it has to be a high dose and it can't mess with my blood sugar.kind answers please allready frustrated.

  • Maybe you can try lisinopril and carvedilol ? I take them both. You can ask your doctor what they think.

    Never had any thing happen with mine other than thyroid elevating and I have that issue as it is..

    Good luck!

  • I tried lisinopril and it raised my blood sugar, never heard of carvedilol. I'm just in shock because I've had hypoglycemia my whole life and then when I start the high blood pressure medicines my blood sugar all the sudden goes high but pre-diabetes not diabetes.

  • Go on a high protien diet. You need to lose weight?

    This is a lot better than taking med's
