Hi rajeshkumar38.

Thanks for your question.

Esiflow donot reduces blood pressure but sometimes asthma increases blood pressure and as esiflow reduce the asthma it can indirectly reduce blood pressure.

Do you are taking arbitel-M.if the answer is yes then the blood pressure is now normal due to this medicine.But please donot stop any blood pressure medicine without the consent of your physician.

Best wishes

1. basically hypertension,asthma are psychosomatic disorder and esiflow has indirectly made you feel that your blood pressure is normal (by reducing the sympathetic action) i.e. calming the sympathetic overactivity.
2. be sure, sudden stoppage of medication may result in rebound hypertension resulting in serious side/adverse effects, so don't stop unless told by your attending physician.
3. one doesn't know whether it was systemic action or additive action of the drugs prescribed (Ayurveda+Allopathy), so mixing two pathy will result in unnecessary drug interaction (if any) and this may cause a sense of false belief in you.
4. stopping or changing Arbitel AM rest on you Physician.

hello rajesh kumar,
welcome to HCM,
your normal BP is due to medicine and relief in asthma. higher systolic BP is mostly due to stress, exertion as also occur during asthma. as asthma decrease BP also came down to some extent. and arbitel AM also effect to BP. so do regular check BP and if it is normal or law regular then ask to your doctor to reduce or stop medicine.
have a better health

welcome to healthcare magic
as you have two problems 1. Blood pressure and 2, Asthma
you are taking medicines from two doctors.
So your problem is always solved by either the allopathy doctor or from ayurveda doctor where you are in touch.
No one can suggest you that it has to stop or not !!
because of it needed regular check up and time to time observation.
as per my experience you can surely make change over your body from alopathy medicines to ayurveda, but it has to perform step by step.

Have a Nice day !!
