Trandate has lowered my blood pressure recently to 120/65, but I have had an issue with my kidney function, went from 33% down to 22% in the last few months since starting the Trandate.

Comment:
Went on it because I want to get pregnant. Started 200mg twice a day, now on 300mg 3 times a day. Had to get used to the side effects, tingly head, headaches and numbness in legs. Seems ok now. Have to watch what I eat, can't drink too much on it, BP goes in the 140/90 next day if I do.

Comment:
I think my patient is being given too high of a dose for my blood pressure, his RX is 300 mg twice a day. I am online today to see what is the general concensus among sites about the correct dosage
