How to Lower BP without pills ?

My blood pressure is around 145/90 and i am taking 50mg of Triamterene. Because my blood pressure is elevated, my doctor wants to put me on Lisinopril 10mg. The pharmacy warned about the medications both causing potassium levels to raise to unhealthy levels and to double check with my doctor. I did, and they still say it s okay to take it even though the things I read on the net and what the pharmacy told me were negative. I am 27 years old and am already half way through the process of getting the gastric bypass, if I change doctors now then the whole process will be screwed. If I continue to take the Triamterene and not start this new drug, then how long approximately will I see positive results if I try to lower the bloodpressure though diet/exercise. I am wondering on average if you see results in weeks or months because I don t trust this pill nor the doctor seeing that I was already in the emegency room last weekend because he had me on something else that didn t work. The Linsinopril is a small dose though so I am wondering if it also makes a huge difference

Have you tried propranolol? It worked great for my anxiety and migraine which can cause high blood pressure. I was on it for two years and i didnt get any side effects. I was on it from 1994 til 1996. Believe me, until today, i never had a single migraine no more. Do ask your doctor about it. Anyhow if you want, do try out malay alternative remedy for your blood pressure. My husband had the same problem with his blood pressure. I gave him: 1. Chopped chives eaten the way of your likings or 2. Water boiled with chives 2 cups a day or 3. Eat lots of garlic cooked or preferably fresh or 4. eat lots of bean sprouts I used the chive methods for him to drink, and i also frequently gave him fresh chopped onions mix with soy sauce whenever he eats rice. His blood pressure is now normal. Good luck.

I recently experienced an elevated blood pressure of 198/103 while in the dentist s chair awaiting two surgical extractions. The dentist would not start , understandably so. Thereafter I went to see my primary care doctor, whose nurse practitioner gave me a Clonidine pill and a prescription for it. I was previously taking 100mg of Losartan. once a day without side effects. She has me taking Clonidine twice a day. W hile my blood pressure has significantly lowered, I do not like the effect of this medication, especially taking it twice a day. I feel the Circumstances elevated my pressure. This all occurred on Wednesday. I am going back yo see her today at 2pm. I also take a natural supplement called Michael s Blood Pressure factors, which contains Calcium, Magnesium and Hawthorn Berry. I have also looked into a high blood pressure diet, since I believe nutrition plays a huge part in our well-being. I also regularly walk twice a day. What are your thoughts? Damaris Thomas

My mother is 91. I was testing my blood pressure with a new home machine and took hers, too. Mine was fine, but hers is 172/113! She has had high bp and is currently taking Triamterene W/Hctz 37.5/25, 1/day, as well as Amlodipine 5mg Tab 1/day. She is mostly physically inactive each day as her knees and back bother her from arthritis. She weighs approx. 170-175 and is about 5 6 and has been diagnosed with early alzheimer s. Should I be rushing her to the hospital for nitroglycerine or something?
