Dear patient

Thanks for your concerns. The effects of cold water on blood pressure may be variable either increase decrease or remain the same but changes will last only a short time; the best medication for high blood pressure is regular aerobic exercise; most patients need more than 1 medication to control their blood pressure on the long term.

Yours truly
