Your concern is natural. You need to undergo further investigations to rule out renal pathology because your BP is not normalized inspite of medication. You need to take care of your weight, reduce intake of common salt and salt containing food items. Please go back to your physician and undergo investigations.

Hello,

I would like to recommend you Homeopathic remedy for your blood pressure. It will help to control your blood pressure without producing any side effects. You may get it from any homeopathic store. Rauwalfia- mother tincture- 5 drops in 3 spoons of water three times a day and Nux Vomica- 1M only once at night before going tobed.

Thanks

My sister is 61 years old and is 5 3 tall. A couple hours ago I learned that her current BP is 170/105 and I am very concerned. She weighs about 168 lbs. Should we take her to the emergency room? Also, she is taking 10 mgs of Lisiniprol a day. Please let me know what we should do for this moment as her BP is not ever that high. Thank you

I am on lisinopril 5 mg twice a day morning and night and my blood pressure is still all over the place. My provider is ok but because it will drop to 95/66 or 110/66 in the after noons she does not seem to concerned but it will still go up and in the morning it is like yesterday 163/105 and this moringing 170 /100but will go down by afternoon. She had me on clondine in morning but my mouth and lips swelled up and after a week was having trouble talking so quit that. What i am wanting to know is lisinopril right or is there another that would work better. Or is there a specialist i should consult instead of trying to figure this out with my PA

Hi, I am a 42 year old women, 68 kilos, 5 foot 8. I have Lupus and always had low blood pressure (100 over 55) The past few weeks it has jumped to around 135 over 105. It has times spiked to 148 over 120. When it was its highest I had chest, shoulder and neck pain. I did go to hospital but the wait was 6 hours and decided to go home. Should I be overly concerned and is it safe to wait to see my Reumatoligist in a couple of weeks. I have been under a great deal of stress the past few months. Your advice would be great. Regards Rebecca
