hypertension medications which ones are safe for cpn treatment?

since starting the wheldon protocol I have noticed, like Dr. Wheldon, that many of us experience hypertension. Maybe due to high volume of toxins within the body or some vasculitisi during treatment.

  My general pc doctor wants to start me on high blood pressure">i medication, called Diovan. I did take two days worth and wow! no more headaches, flushing feeling, chest pressure or brain fog. My concern here is because cpni is so tricky and certain medications may be causing more problems. Has anyone besides myself know what would be recommended for cpn issues?

 I would like to know how Dr. Wheldon handled his hypertension during his treatment or what is recommended as safe.

I took amlodipine (Norvasc) the entire time I was on the CAPi with no ill effect.  There has even been some discussion on the site to the effect that there are some calcium channel blocker HBP medications that work synergistically with the CAP.  I'll look for it.

I find this timely as my blood pressure is creeping up there.  It was 90/60 in 2007 when I started capi and now it is  anywhere from 173/96 (w/pulse of 106) to 152/86-96, to 106/62/90.  There have been several days I have had to take Atenolol as my heart felt like it was coming out of my chest. 

It seems to be all over the place, but is into the "hypertension">i" range now.   Some days it is scarey.  Definitely a topic of discussion at my next dr. appt. this month.  Could this be occuring due to the fact  I haven't pulsed since the end of September?? 

Looking forward to reading what others have used.
