So at my last hospital appointment (back in May) the doctor there said he would write to my GP about putting me on some ace inhibtors. These are for blood pressure as when I was in hospital apparently my readings were quite high/low (not surprising by any means). So I had to chase my GP several times for this, and finally got to speak to a doctor (requested a telephone call). When he got me on the phone, he told me that he thought it was a dangerous idea to put me on this, as 80% of people who go on these develop kidney complications (which interestingly the hospital doctor told me these were for my kidneys and I later found out that these weren't - but were for blood pressure). The GP told me that for now, they weren't going to put me on these, but it is so confusing. I'm constantly being told one thing by hospital and another thing by GP - but this really scared me. Does anyone take any ACE inhibitors? Could you share your experience? My GP told me horror stories about the medication and so it has really put me off it big time.
