Almost every time I go to the doctors they change either my dose or my blood pressure meds. I am wondering if they are working on the trial and error method.

Yes, I am afraid much of medicine is trial and error. We are all a little different and there no way (yet) to determine how each of our slightly different genetic profiles will respond to any medication. The best we can say of any FDA approved medicine is that they work for most of us to some degree.
