My mom suffers from high blood pressure but takes medication and that keeps her in check. From time to time it gets real high but not in a while. She was a 2 pack a day smoker but hasn,t smoked like that for almost 2 months but started back over a week ago having maybe 4 - 8 a day. Hasn'y smoked at all for a whole day and a half. She put a 21 mg patch on this a.m and her pressure is real high, like 184/119?? Is it from the patch?
Hello, I understand your concern. Your mom probably had high blood pressure unknowingly to her before she started using the nicotine patch. Using it when you have high blood pressure will worsen your blood pressure. I advise you to talk to your physician about this. Warm regards
