I woke up this morning and my blood pressure was 159/93. I had just taken one sip of coffee before thinking of taking my blood pressure. I take Diovan 160. I m a 58 year old female 5 3 and weigh 155. What is normal for my age. I don t always take my meds as I should - 1/day. I m retired and sometimes half the pill a day to make it until I have the money to fill the next prescription. I do try to check my pressure periodically during the day. If it is up I take the other half pill. I walk a mile, maybe three times a week. What can I do when my pressure is up that high in the morning or anytime for that matter.

I am asking this question for my friend. She had chemotherapy two years ago for a very invasive form of breast cancer. For the past six months her incontinence has steadily worsened. She has to change her sheets every night and is exhausted. She is on a fentanyl patch for chronic neuropathic pain as well as anti-depressants. She does not have high blood pressure, but now is experiencing shortness of brearth. She is not satisfied with the care she has been receiving from her physicians and does not know what to do? What would you recommend? Thank you very much.
