Lower blood pressure after ICD implant
Has anyone experienced a lowering of blood pressure after having an ICD implanted. I have a bi-venticular pacemaker/defib for cardiomyopathy probably inherited. I have had to decrease my COzaar (ARB) by half since the implant, but have remained on the same amout of Coreg (beta blocker). My resting heart rate is always around low 60s since the implant. I have feelings of blood pressure dropping occasionally, cut not daily. Has an implant lowered anyone else's BP?

My eight year old son had a pacemaker since he was 6 months old. He does very well, plays soccer, baseball, and rides his bike. I am so glad he is not ashamed of his pacemaker. He will proudly show his "battery" to anyone.
