Hi,
Thanks for query,
If you measured your bp correctly it is more.Have you got any signs of having chest pain,discomfort,headache,dizzyness,then better go to ER and go for treatment.
Never try self medication.
Ok and bye.

Hello.welcome.While taking your antihypertensive medicines,specially when your BP is normal,if your BP shoots to such a level should always be explored and looked into.Must visit your doctor.Good luck.

My father has multiple myeloma. he s on his third month of the BiRD treatment right now with Revlmid, biaxin and dexamethazone. his BP has been low this week and tonight has dropped to 101/53. he s weak and can t keep his eyes open and has sever leg cramps. He s been fairly active since on the treatment since this particular regimen can cause blood clots. He s coherent and not dizzy at all. we can t get him to drink much, but we are thinking maybe the low bp is due to dehydration. we can t get ahold of his doctor or nurse right now. should we worry? is there anything we can do to make it come up?
