hi doctor...i am 35 years old and constantly have BP of 130/90 over several readings. sometimes it shows lower at 120/80 but most times the reading is 130/90. last 3 weeks i have been facing sudden palpatations and this is causing a lot of anxiety. i have got my ecg , 2d echo and stress test done at the hospital last week and all results were ok. even after that i continue to have sudden palpatations and anxiety attacks on a daily basis so today my doc prescribed Metpure XL 25mg 1 tab daily. i am not sure whether to take this medicine. also i have been having acidity since last 6 months and am on a daily dose of razoprazol 20mg 1 tab each morning. pls advise what i should do. thanks..
