I am being treated for High Blood Pressure for several years. Recently I had an arrhythmia episode and after I stopped taking a blood thinner I began having a coughing problem and changed BP meds. Now my BP is higher than ever (180/120 average for last 24 hours) and my pulse is high all the time (Average 100 for the last 24 hours). This has been going on for a month now. I am considering quitting my BP meds for a short period before going back to my Doctor to see if my BP and heart rate will normalize. Am I OK with this action as long as I monitor my BP and heart rate for increases and start the meds again if it goes up?
