Ok.... So here I am again asking a question for opinions.. Seriously I don t think I trust my doctor . He was new to me a month ago and I went in with a BP of 140/100 stressed out and overweight 248 lbs and 5ft 7 and drinking and smoking. So now 1 month later.. I quit smoking when I walked out his door (social smoker maybe like a pack a week) but I still quit and no drinking same day (about 20-30 beers a week)... I have lost 28 pounds. And I am doing cardio 4 times a week and eating tons of really healthy organic fresh foods. Ones that are targeted for lowering BP and Cholesterol... So now.. As of 3 days ago... I started taking only 1/2 of my prescribed dose of my Amlodipine which was 5mg. So for the last 2 days I have only taken 2.5mg. When I was taking the 5mg my BP was dropping really low like 92/64 low... Now with only the 2.5mg I am staying in the 107-111/68-74 ranges.... I called the doctor to tell him the great news and his nurse was like.. Yeah well that could be a fluke don t stop taking meds. I don t think I need them anymore. This doctor has been very ambitious about several items with my health which I find nice as he doesn t ignore my concerns.. But also I feel like he is treating me like a gereatric patient at the same time.. As this is a large percentage of his patients.. i am only 38 years old.. Female by the way.... :o)..... Any opinons from experience or medical knowledge.. Thanks.
