Hi, just having probs with blood pressure, it was low, so the drs took me off Cardizem CD and put me on fludrocortisone, up to 0.3mg daily. Was stable about 6 months, then my BP jumped to 160/90, was in hospital overnight (about 3 monts ago) and it came back down to normal. Fludrocortisone changed down to 0.2mg and BP stabilised. I have been off the florinef for about a week now,as a test with drs ok, and currently (in bed at almost 4am!) my BP is sitting at 159/116 with a heart rate of 75. I am 18 1/2 years post heart transplant, current ag is 32.

Other than occasionally being tired I feel fine. What gives? High blood pressure plus low heart rate..

I just had my bp taken and it was 150 over 90. I am a 42 year old male who is dieting at the moment and dropped 15 lbs over the past month and now weigh approx. 210 lbs. (I am 5 ft. 7 in. tall). I am nervous with that reading. I had to go down two flights of stairs to get to the test, could that have had an affect on the reading??
