While your reluctance to take medicines is understandable, please remember that the topmost priority is to get the BP under control. Uncontrolled BP can produce permanent damage to the heart, kidneys, brain and eye. Keeping the BP under control 24 x7 is the only way to prevent damage. While all the lifestyle measures are important and useful, studies have shown that, invariably, one or two or sometimes 3 or 4 medicines are needed by the majority of hypertensive patients to keep the BP under satisfactory control.
PLEASE REMEMBER, KEEPING THE BP BELOW 135/85 MM HG IS THE IMPORTANT THING, WHETHER IT IS BY LIFESTYLE MEASURES, DIET, EXERCISE OR DRUGS......

Rheumatologist Dr. Raheesh Ravindran's  Response
Dear sir , Advicing an individual to control his blood pressure depends upon the level of hypertension the individual has.There is a stage called prehypertension where one is adviced to keep a check on his blood pressure without depending on any drugs.

Slightly elevated blood pressure is known as prehypertension. Prehypertension will likely turn into high blood pressure (hypertension) if you don't make lifestyle changes, such as start exercising and eating healthier. Both prehypertension and high blood pressure increase your risk of heart attack, stroke and heart failure.

here are the most accepted categories of hypertension

Prehypertension 120–139 or 80–89

Hypertension, Stage 1 140–159 or 90–99

Hypertension, Stage 2 ≥160 or ≥100



Stage 1 and 2 are treated with drugs.



Hope you find my answers useful.

I am a reasonably fit 52 year old man who cannot climb any stairs, even a relatively short 5 steps or so, without feeling lightheaded 20-30 seconds after completing the climb. I have been diagnosed with high blood pressure and take Cozaar in the morning. I ve never had a low blood pressure reading. This effect is much stronger after eating. Is this a heart problem, or something else?

I am having heart problems. One week a go I was rushed into hospital with high blood pressure of 180/100 and put on a drip etc to calm down. I have suffered similar attacks for about 2 years since I moved from England to Mexico. I often have panic attacks and this seems to cause the high blood pressure. The problem I have now is that every time I panic I think that I am going to have a heart attack which makes me panic further and I end up back in a hospital bed. The doctors did a basic electrical scan of my heart and found nothing at the time. I have lowered my sodium intake since and tried to reduce stress. I was given some pills to help with the process of recovery. The pills do help and my blood pressure seems to be lower, it can now go as long as 88/45, but in an instant of panic it can rise very high and stay there for long periods until I try and calm myself or visit a doctor. I´m only 27 years old and I am beginning to be scared every time I miss a breathe. Is there anything more I can do? Do I need to see an expert? I am living in Mexico and everything is expensive and I´m finding things difficult.

Hi Dr. Sam. I withdrew fron Effexor total of 225. mg. I went to 150 mg. for 10 days. then .75 mg. for 10 days. This is day 4 of Freedom. I had flu like symtoms for 4 days on the first reduction. Then brain zaps and unable to sleep more than an hour or so for 2 days..and then I slept four full hours 2 nights ago and last night I slept for 6 hours. I have other symtoms but can manage those okay. However..today even though I had the energy to get lots done.. as soon as I lie down to rest or sleep... a fresh new hell has hit...itchiness all over and even feet bottoms... jumping from one place of my body to another. I am a Gillian Barre survivor... and on 10 mg Felodipine for High blood pressure. Is there anything I can do beyond prayer to help myself fast track through this phase of the withdrawl? My attitude is good...and the Effexor was to help me during a time of anxiety...long gone.. this is much worse..but I am not giving up! Thank you for any advice/help as you may be able to give me! Patricia
