Were you at a regular doctors office or the ob/gyn? If you weren't at the ob/gyn I'd be a little skeptical of taking the med.
I am surprised they would give you anything with one high blood pressure reading. The high BP with pre-eclampsia is usually noted after 24 weeks and could mean other things if noticed before 24 weeks.
I'd just keep a close eye on the BP, and if it still runs high constantly talk with your ob/gyn about any kind of meds.
I usually don't tell anyone to quit taking medication, but if it was a primary care doctor I would honestly talk to the ob/gyn before continuing it.

i am cipro for a bladder infection....on about the last day i started to feel an odd head pressure from temple to temple...3.5 days after cipro i still had the inf. so am on cipro another 10 days...i still have this head pressure on and off all day....had a headache for 2 days while on the 2nd dose but my period started so not sure if that headache was from that because i get bad headaches every month while on my cycle...but i did have this headache and had nausea and vomiting from it.....i still have about 5 days left of cipr. I am concerned the cipro is causing my head pressure....i have told my dr. about it..she told me to get my eyes checked (because my vision gets funny with the head pressure) and she told me to take a decongestant (i don t have a cold or anything). I am concerned about intracranial hypertension that a freind mentioned to me.
