Feeling fuzzy in the head and having a bad headache, I went to the ER last week and my blood pressure was 196/154. They did blood work on me and said that my thyroid was low and I left the ER with Amiodipine and thyroid medicine. I have been on the medicine for a week and my blood pressure is still 151/101. I do not know what to do. My doctor is out of town until next week and I am worried that the high blood pressure medicine is not working. Any advice?
