My blood pressure just now measured at just over 200/100. I am on statins, indapamide, perindopril. Small aspirin and pizotfen (for migraine). My bp is usually fairly normal for my age, 79. No stress. Do I need to take quick action? I feel more or less OK. Never had ischaemic problems.

I am a heavy drinker but I do exercise daily with cardio and upper body conditioning. When I get up in the morning I take my blood preassure after I have been up for an hour. I only drink water before taking my preassure . My morning readings are are upper 140 s /mid 80 s to lower 90 s. with a pulse of 60to 79. My evening readings range from 110-132/ 56-70/ with pulse from 72-94. Do I have a reason to be concerned

I have been on Lorazepam (for chronic stress-- ADHD ) for over 10 years (I have tried other things, but my body flips out over drugs and this is they only thing that helps me turn my brain off. A year ago, my doctor put me on a 5 milligram BP med.... (my diastolic was high 80 s and into the low 90 s) on 5 mg, my diastolic has been running in the lower 80 s...... He just put me on 10 mg. (I started the new dose two days ago) I feel great. no side effects. but my numbers are already DOWN..... 117/83 am.... then 124/78 pm..... now today 106/79 am.... and just now 108/68 . this is ok? right? if it gets lower or if I get dizzy or something I should call my doctor.... but if it stays about this...... all is ok? also, I take my med in the morning. oh... my email address is YYYY@YYYY . thanks!

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
