eat potassium rich foods, potassium is good for extracting excess sodium and water which will help to lower blood pressure. Walking is excellent exercise, but must be maintained daily to do any good.

Hi...Is Atorvastatin helps to lower High Blood Pressure? I started taking this 3 weeks ago after my doctor prescribed me this because of high level of cholesterol (290). My normal blood pressure before taking this medicine was 130-140/90...but when I started taking Atorvastatin may BP went down to 115-120/80. I dont know if it is bacause of this medicine or because I also started a change of lifestyle like regular exercise, fruits and vegetable diet, avoiding fatty foods and carbs. Just want to know if my new lifestyle is taking effect...THANK YOU VERY MUCH

Hello Doctor, I am very concerned - my son who is 46 years is on medication for blood pressure and does not seem a well person. I have a blood prerssure monitor and it read 144/104 today. I often take it at radom and his blood pressure is always high. He does have it monitered at the GP surgery but the doctor does not send him for further tests. My father died at 58 years of an undetected heart condition, so that is why I am concerned for him. He has never smoked, does not drink alchohol and is on a healthy diet. He is a window cleaner, so does get plenty of excercise. Thanking you in anticipation
