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?

Dear colleaggues, I'm Ingrid Hilman, MD, 58 years. had my stenting on 17 Feb, 3 stents in LAD and RCA.

Since 2 weeks ago, I develop severe headaches, esp during the iningt or when I wake up in the morning and also palpitation (heart rate > 90). I feel weak during palpitation. I do not have hypertension (my BP is between 90-110 and 70-80). I do not have obesity, smoking habits, my lab is pretty good only LDL 100.

Is this because of the herbresser that I take 3 times a day?

Other drug that I take;

- Aspirin 1 x 100 mg

- Plavix 1 x 75 mg

- Lipitor 1 x 10 mg.

Appreciate your inputs on my above complaints. Thank you very much

I am a 25 yr old female that has recently lost 70 pounds and suffers from pcos. I am off all the bp medicines I was taking, and have been on a gluten free diet since 4/21/11 b/c I am allergic to wheat. I have been getting dizzy, lightheaded, and have a fast heart rate and low blood pressure when standing or sitting up. my heart rate is usually in the 60 -70 range when resting, and it's been in the high 90 - 100 range while resting. The dizziness started Sunday 6/19/11 all of a sudden, and I have kept track of my BP and symptoms since Sunday. I get this intense pressure in my head, and the get dizzy, and my heart will race when I start to feel yucky, I have trouble breathing, when my heart rate is up this high for no apparent reason. My BP will be 93/62 and HR 101 standing, or it can be 114/65 and HR 80 a few minutes later.. but if I go from lying down to sitting, it will be elevated, then it elevates when I stand, if I lay down everything is fine.. the pressure in my head goes away, the dizzyness goes away, and the HR goes back to normal... I have a shunt in place for hydrocephalus, my first shunt was placed at the age of two weeks, and first revision was done 4/5/2010. I want to know what is causing this fluctuation in BP and the dizziness, and fast HR...thanks
