Hello Dr.Manik,
I have gone through your query.Thnanks for using HCM.
first of all i would like to know about your postural hypertension,usually one gets postural hypotension .kindly clarify and mention exact level of BP.It is surprising that you are not on medicine inspite of knowing that you have hypertension for last 20 yrs! If you are tolerating Amlodipine well then it is good medicine and you may increase the dose to 5 mg once a day.You should aim Bp below 140/90.If you dont attain that target you may add medicine from ACEI group of medicine.
My best wishes
Dr.Rajesh Teli,MD.
