    Blood pressure pills makes you sleep like a rock?

    I have never slept so good in my life except when I was on anti-seizure meds. One of the side effects of one of my blood pressure meds is feeling tired. I am a write off by 8:30. However, true I wake up at 5:30 AM. Most nights I am unconscious by close to 930. And I sleep rock solid till 530. I have never been like that in my life.

    Lucky for you. I've been on them for about 17 years and they've never had that effect on me. Each person is different how meds affect them.

    Tired? no. They messed up my vision. If I were you I would discuss this with your doctor. Maybe you need your dosage adjusted.

    I think that's a GOOD thing. 8 hrs of good solid sleep! Isn't that what everyone strives for?

    If you donít like the time they make you sleepy then take them at a time you want to feel sleepy?

    There are numerous drugs that have differing affects on people.

    If they say it induces drowsiness then donít take them until bedtime.
    If they say they induce alertness then take in the morning.

    Was there a question?? Or just stating facts?

    He wants my dosage pretty high because my blood pressure was very high and I am now also a diabetic. He said I need to keep a blood pressure around 110/70. Which was my old blood pressure before my breakdown.

    It probably is good. I was a bad insomniac before for decades.

    I think waking up at 5:30 contributes to tired. And running after 5 toddlers and infants.
