Suggest treatment for high BP when on Meth
Prednisone and methamphetamine can raise blood pressure.
Hello and thank you for your question.
If you do this, you will need to monitor your blood pressure carefully. Both methamphetamine and prednisone can raise the blood pressure. If you do not have a blood pressure cuff, you should buy or borrow one and check your blood pressure several times a day while you are on the prednisone.
Please consider getting your self off the meth even if it means going into a drug treatment facility. If your blood pressure is more than 200/100, you should go to the emergency department immediately.
Consider consulting your doctor that prescribes lisinopril, letting them know the situation and having them give you an additional blood pressure medication called clonidine that you may use to help control your blood pressure and help you get off the meth.
I wish you good health.
Thanks for using HCM.
so glad that you have a plan in place
Thanks for your follow up. I know that getting off any substance is a struggle. You have already taken the hardest step and that is making the commitment to do it. I am happy for you and your family and wish you much success and health in your future
