Hi,

You seem to be having resistant hypertension. You need to exclude any renal cause (renovascular or renoparenchymal) of hypertension first. For this urinalysis, renal function tests (BUN, serum creatinine, serum electrolytes) and USG Abdomen especially KUB area & Pelvis are needed.
To increase the dose of amlodipine/amloguard may be an option.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Tushar Kanti Biswas, Internal Medicine Specialist

my blood pressure has been high for over a decade-i take medication for it; usually, with medication, it was nearly always 140 over 80 which was normal for me; however, in the last three weeks, my blood pressure has spiked--to 170 over 102-fairly consistently--I am 235 lbs. 5 9 and 58
