I have hypertension (high BP) and I have been on BP medication for a long time. Just last week my BP med had to be increased almost double because my BP has become very elevated and will not level out. This is the first time that I have had this problem. What can I do to help decrease my BP? I take my BP med everyday, faithfully, so it s not because of that. I m just wondering what are some other ways to bring high BP down. Anyone having the same problem and getting it under control please tell me how you did it. Thank you!

Hi, I am reading this website because my mother s blood pressure is measuring 200/100. It changes all the times in a day. She measures around 150/100 to 200/100 (usually higher in the evenings). We have been to the Doctor last week. Mum was sent for a scanning test and ultra sound last week. Her heart side is good and everything came out good. But her blood pressure has not come down since.We are a little bit worry and will go back to the Doctor again tomorrow, beside the reading . my mother is feeling fine. Can she wait till tomorrow to see the Doctor? Thanks in advance.

Hello. I am a final year medical student. My mum had her BP taken last week and it was 180/130. She bought a blood pressure monitor yesterday and it has been reading 220/150 relatively consistently since (normal BP readings on rest of family), she has no headache/visual problems. She has rang the doctors-on-call and the nurse told her to wait and see her normal GP in working hours (this means waiting 48 hours). I am worried about malignant hypertension - should I persuade her to go to A&E?
