Experience shortness in breath all of a sudden, high BP patient. Prescribed calaptin, librium, but BP varies. Is it ok ?

I worked in a software firm. By nature I am a bit nervous type. I am having high blood pressure from 32-33 yrs of age. Now I am 43. For past 3-4 years i experienced shortness in breath all of a sudden. It comes to normal after 10-15 minutes. For the past 6-7 months I am under a new doctor and he prescribed calaptin 80 alongwith librium 10. I am good now. But my pressure moves around 90-130/90-140. Is it Ok?

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Librium is anxiolytic – it will help in your nervousness.

Calaptin is calcium channel blocker – it is useful to reduce blood pressure and heart rate.
It could cause myocardial depression. If you are breathless, you need ECHOcardiogrm and Chest X-ray to reassure.

You will need better control of your pressure.
Angiotensin Receptor Blocker [ARB] or Angiotensin Converting Enzyme [ACE] Inhibitors can be added.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
