Brief answer....given below Detailed answer... Blood pressure medicines take some time to have full effect and so you must wait for some more time. If you feel that your blood pressure is still not controlled,then you can consult your doctor again and ask for the revision of medicine.In that case the dose of individual medicines can be increased or some more medication can be added to your current regime. There is absolutely no reason for your blood pressure not to get controlled. Along with medicines,you must make efforts to reduce the salt intake,increase the fruits and green vegetables intake,doing regular brisk walk everyday for 45 minutes and moderating your alcohol. Try to do regular yoga and meditation to keep the stress away. Your BP shall stabilise soon. I hope to have answered your query,however you may revert to me for any further query. Best of luck Thanks

1. Thanks for the prompt reply and hope BP will come down soon and there is no immediate danger of any attack. 2. My question is whether dosage is increased or reduced. I find there is no potassium supplement in new medicine. Will it have any effect on blood pressure. 3. I got electrolytes tests done and found potassium levels are below the normal. 4. Ofcourse, im feeling better with new medicines but BP is not reduced. Request appreciate if any cardiologist also respond to the above.

Hello, It looks that your potassium levels are marginally below the normal and hence can be made allright by taking more fruits like banana,citrus fruits etc and green vegetables like spinach,Brocolli etc. Proper potassium intake would also help in normalising your blood pressure levels. Thanks
