Hi well come to HCM.
Your BP is not very high, and BP can not be reduced without medicine in a day. Change
in life style, salt restriction, regular exercise,avoiding vices like smoking,avoiding food
with excess carbohydrate and fatty food. All this will have positive impact on your BP
but it is time taking. Take care and Thanks

The top isnt really too bad-it's the lower that concerns me. You probably have a little residual from the meds. Try to find a quiet place in the house and keep the lights low. Sit in a comfortable chair-or rest on the bed. Close your eyes and concentrate on clearing your mind of the days activities. Picture a place that gives you peace and joy. Can be the ocean, the mountains of whatever works for you. Breathe deeply and exhale fully. Do this for five or ten minutes. If you can do this every day, I think youu'll find it easier to regulate your blood pressure. Good luck and make sure you always keep your meds up to date. Good luck.

I am a 28 year old female that is currently taking Pristia 100 mg, Lasix 40 mg and Klor-con M 20 and Augmentin 875 (temporary for ear infection). I was just taken off Norvasc 5 mg. My blood pressure is still too high 148/98. I take the Lasix and Klor-Kon in the morning and then the Augmentin a half hour after the Lasix and Klor Con. I take the Pristiq in the evening along with another dose of Augmentin. I can t figure out why these medicines are not working to lower my blood pressure and the Norvasc didn t work either. What could be wrong ????

In a recent medical exam, my BP was 142/92 and my pulse rate was 63. My SpO2 was measured twice (three minutes apart) and went from 96% to 93%. I had no medical history to report to the doctor. I was basically starting fresh with my healthcare. She said my vitals were normal and stable. She said my BP was likely due to my back pain (that led to the visit in the first place). But if my pressure was high, why was my rate low?? And, what is the significance of the drop in SpO2? Thanks.

I have a rash in my groin and my body is always itchy. For about 2 years I had rashes on both my feet. It seems to have cleared now but I still have to apply dipresone everyday. I take medication for high blood pressure - Micardi Plus, Zanidip and Spiractin. Are any of these causing my rash problems?

I feel kind of silly asking this, but my heart rate (resting) has been elevated all day -- ranging from 107 early am, up and down from 130 - 180 most of the day. I've been having episodes like this for several months, but not this bad or long lasting. I guess I'm just not sure what to do. Bp avgs 120/78 - 130/88.
