Suggest treatment for high BP

Cardiologist 's  Response
Hello There

After going through your medical query I understand your concern and I would like to tell you that isosorbid during nights can decrease blood pressure so avoid doing that and consult your cardiologist personally so evaluate his symptoms physically and diagnostically

Hopefully this information will guide you properly

Kind Regards
Dr Bhanu Partap
