Hello, I am 40 years old female. I have orthostatic HYPER tension, not hypo. I am currently taking Norvsac 5mg 1-po nightly. My blood pressure is still in the range of 136 / 98 TO 128/96 daily when sitting. Laying down it is 110-114/ 80-85. I have alot of concerns about the 96-98 range. I am overweight at 5 3.5 and 190 pounds. I also have high cholesterol at 230but my triglyerides are fine. I started run/walking and changing my diet recently. My question is should I raise the amount of Norvasc until I get my weight under control? I am not taking anything for the cholesterol yet, as my cardiologist was giving me 6mos. I take omega 3 daily now as well.

56 year old female, worked throughout the day in a fairly stressful situation cleaning out the office of a friend after his untimely and unexpected passing. After returning home, I was laying on the sofa when my heart started palpitating or fluttering causing me to cough. This happened several times and subsided after ten minutes or so. I did have a heart attack, although minor, in 2007. Blockage was too distal to receive a stent. Currently being treated for hypertension and taking a statin for high cholesterol. Should these heart flurries concern me?
