Hello There

After going through your medical query I understand your concern and I would like to tell you that if your blood pressure is more than 150-90 continuously then you can increase the dose but is recommended for you to monitor your blood pressure for 1 week.

Hopefully this information will guide you properly.

Kind Regards
Dr Bhanu Partap
