a lot of factors depend on BP reading. A reading of 152/93 would be considered high for some one without hypertension, but depending on your readings of your BP that could be quite normal for you. Do you keep a blood pressure log of all your blood pressure measurements? Refer to your BP log and make sure you call your doctor in the morning to let him know the result so he may document it in your chart. Check your BP again tonight, while performing some activity, reading, watching TV, record it and any symptoms you may be having, and let your doctor know.

I am a 73 year old woman and I have episodes of high blood pressure from time to time and have had this problem since the age of 28. When I was 28 I was prescribed Inderal 10 migm 5 times a day and I still take this medication but for several years I have only taken 10 mgm at bedtime. I usually increase the dosage if my BP starts acting up. These episodes only last a few days and are usually related to stress. I know that my salt intake was very high over the holidays . During normal times my BP is 130/80. A few years ago my doctor put me on ritalin and it made me feel spaced out so I went to a Naturopath and took angiolaxin starting with 5 tabs twice a day and over a course of months we gradually decreased the dosage until I no longer used it. Sometimes I tend to take on too many commitments and everybody says slow down but it is not in my nature to do that. When I feel an episode of out of control BP , I become very tired, almost exhausted and have a slight headache. To give you an example of my BP readings for the past 10 days -- Dec 22, 2013 10:45 a.m. 178/94 Pulse 68 Dec 24, 2013 9 p.m. 201/94 P 68 Dec 27,2013 10:30 a.m. 139/78 P73 Dec 30, 2013 9:40 a.m. 161/90 P 92 Dec 31, 2013 5 p.m. 181/95 P72 Jan 1, 2014 8:30 a.m. 150/87 P63 Jan 2, 2014 8:30 a.m. 193/98 P65 Restarted Angiolaxin 5 tabs BID Jan 3 , 2014 4 a.m. 166/94 P61 Stayed in bed, resting Jan 4, 2014 9 a.m. 163/98 P 64 Jan 5, 2014 12Noon 149/99 P 90 Couldn t concentrate, tired, slight headache. Jan 6, 2014 9 a.m. 156/94 P 73 Jan 6, 2014 10 a.m. 195/100 P 73 Took 2 tylenol for headache. Spent time reviewing paperwork Took the dog for 2 short walks. Jan 6, 2014 2 p.m. 146/89 P 82 Took a nap for 1 hour, then walked the dog Jan 6, 2014 5 p.m. 136/91 P 89 It feels like the episode is over now even though it lasted a lot longer. When my blood pressure gets so high should I get out and take walks or should I just rest? I am still on the Angiolaxin and it does bring the BP down after a few days but I will listen to your suggestions
My daughter was in the hospital this week with blood pressure 200/148. she was there for two days and they sent her home with 148/98. She was taking 10 mg lisinopril and said to take two. She has monitored her blood pressure and the lower number keeps going up. It is now 148/119. She has no chest pains, shortness of breath, etc. They said the high pressure was due to a combination of meds particularly with phenylephrine. She also takes Keppra and Flonaise.
Does she need to go to emergency or can she wait to see if her blood pressure stablizes. thank you.
I started to take a generic form of Lexapro about a month ago. I have developed a rash around my mouth and on my chin, and by the sides of my nose.. I am 66. I am also. Taking other anti depressants and anti anxiety pills. Could the rash be from the Lexapro?
Hi me and my wife had unprotected sex yesterday, She had her period on 18th and was over on 22nd June We tried to look up for emergency pills here in UAE and couldnt find any. Most of the contraceptive pills here are based on drospirenone and ethinyloestradiol Would taking multiple tablets of those give the same effect. as emergency pills?
