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 ????

I am asking this question for my friend. She had chemotherapy two years ago for a very invasive form of breast cancer. For the past six months her incontinence has steadily worsened. She has to change her sheets every night and is exhausted. She is on a fentanyl patch for chronic neuropathic pain as well as anti-depressants. She does not have high blood pressure, but now is experiencing shortness of brearth. She is not satisfied with the care she has been receiving from her physicians and does not know what to do? What would you recommend? Thank you very much.

Hello, my name is Dianne. I have suffered from hypertension for over 6 years. Several medications did not work. My right kidney was removed in November of last year. My bp came down. I am now on only 200 mg of labatalol 2 times daily. I has been increasing. About two weeks ago I experienced and was treated for bronchitis with Z-pack then started Cipro three days ago. However, I am extremely out of breathe now and have muscle pain from my upper neck to my lower back. It feels as though I am bruised to the point I cant even wear a bra. I have tightness in my chest just to the left side. I also feel very tired and have been unable to work because of this and have gained 6 pounds in just a weeks time. Could this possibly be from my kidney. The last test showed 74% function of the remaining kidney. That was in January, It took two er visits with the chest pain for them to say it was bronchitis.
