I had BP of 160/100,doctor suggested me to use propranolol hydrochloride 40 mg for 1 week,twice in a day,I am using it only once in a day for the past 15 days,now my BP came down to 130/90,can I continue using using the tablet
when i'm at school they teach me the normal BP is 130/90.
Now the researches rediscovered that the BP should be at 120/80.
I think that this is because everyone achieves the predetermined rate i.e 130/90, and will stop the in taking of medicine. This will beat the pharmacy industry, so they make people panic abt the new rate and force to continue to take the pill.
As you attain the 130/90 rate, dont be afraid and enjoy your life.

My mum (79) demanded that she come off bisoprolol after taking for 3 years, as she felt she should not have been on it. The doctor agreed and she is now suffering with increased heart rate (120bpm) at times, but wont see a doctor. She suffers generally with her nerves and feels that going back on the bisoprolol again will calm her down. Is she just panicing or will the panic attack be because of coming off the bisoprolol? She also came off bumetanide at the same time, for the same reason (ie she felt she should never have been put on those tablets)
