Normal is 90/60 to 140/90
Try decreasing your salt intake.
It's not uncommon but you have to have 3 different readings above 160/90 before the doctor says you have high blood pressure
Try buying an automatic machine and take it with you next time you go to the doctor to make sure it is accurate, and take it yourself!
Sometimes people have white coat syndrome
, which means their blood pressure is only high when they visit the doctor!
But a reading like yours means your heart and blood vessels aren't relaxing enough.
With the meds I'm guessing you've had hypertension
for a while, glad I looked back at this one!
Ask about a drug in combination with anti hypertensives and diuretics. This will help decrease the fluid in you blood vessels by getting rid of the salt, of course you might lose potassium as well which is used for nerve
impulses in the heart, if you go that route you may want to ask for supplements. Or you may just want to ask about a potassium sparring diuretic!
