We need to assess the patient in detail. Foot pain can be due to diabetic neuropathy. To assess diabetic control, we need to know the hba1c level (it shows 3 months average of blood sugar level). Also target bp in your case will be less than 140/90. Feel free to consult on private consult for detailed assessment.

These are latest formulations where medicines are sprayed onto a matrix; after the medicines get absorbed, the matrix comes out with stool. This is normal.

Hello, thanks for the query. I have seen the details given. It is difficult to understand why there should be tiredness, because the drug given is for control of high bp and rarely causes such side effects. However, if you are not comfortable with it you can ask your physician to change to some other suitable drug. Since you have not mentioned the bp readings it is difficult to comment further. As regards your weight and height with 75 kgs you are already in over weight category with a bmi of 26.69 kgs/sq meter (normal < 23 kgs/sq meter. Your ideal body weight should be about 66 kgs. Further it is difficult to understand your statement" I feel like going to get diabetes" is your glucose level in the range of pre-diabetes? Even that is not mentioned. Thanks.
