Get to the doctor. You're pressure is to high. you may need to alter your diet and add exercise into your day for at least 20 minutes a day. They also need to look at what medications you are on. Is there something new? Are you under a lot of stress as well. Bottom line get to the doctor.

I am 60 years old. My BP was 170/100 on middle of Nov 11, initially I was advised to take Aten 50; Losartan 50 O.D., Then, as per another cardiologist, I used to take Asomex5 - one tab. before dinner & 1/2 tab before breakfast. I took one week. Now, my BP is 170/80, another house physician advised to take 1 tab. Aten 50 after breakfast and 1 tab. Asomex before dinner. What should I follow - no other complaints with me except BP. Kindly advise.

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?
