Do not stop the BP medications on your own, consult a good physician. The dose of his BP medicines needs to be adjusted.

Hello,

Blood pressure is not a disease. IT can be controlled easily with diet and exercise but do not stop the medication. IF it becomes low, you may give him lemon juice or tea. It will help him to give him energy. Ask him to drink lots of water and liquids.

thanks

My dad recently had a mild stroke. He is currently in rehab and his blood pressure has become erratic. Too high when laying down and way too low when standing, sitting, moving around. The Doctors continue to adjust his BP medication and it is not effective and they say it is puzzling . What are some of the potential causes of this type of erratic blood pressure?

Hello Doc, My father recently underwent a hipsurgery where a bipolar prosthesis was inserted in his leg. It has been more than 11 days since the surgery. He is only able to do limited exercise. He is diabetic (Fasting - 190, 2 hr after food - 260) and has high blood pressure (170/80). Should I give him aspirin for anti- coagulation , Tiotropium bromide for bronchodilation and Telvas AM (Telmisartan + Amlodipine ) for blood pressure. Thanks Regards Manoj Thankyou for the answer. When my dad tries to walk using a walker, he is able to walk only for 5 min. My father says pain and lack of energy are the main reasons for this short duration of the walk. However, after walking when he sits down on the bed, he perspires profusely. Before his hip surgery, his haemoglobin level was low at 9.8. Thats why ~600 ml of blood was transfused before surgery. What do you think is the reason for excessive perspiration? My dad thinks that this may be another reason why he cannot walk more. Your reply is greatly appreciated. Thanks

Dr. Oz, I know you're show is geared mostly towards women but I really am in dyer need of help. I'm a 22 year old male and I'm currently taking two 20mg instant release Adderalls a day. My blood pressure is normal on a daily basis, but high blood pressure and heart disease does run in my family. My concern is in regards to Erectile Disfunction. It is a real self confidence killer! My penis doesn't get fully erect when I'm about to have sex, its hard but not where it can stay up the air hard..excuse the reference. Also some other times it will get hard, but it will not stay that way for long amounts of time. Does anyone know why this could be? I also have trouble staying hard. For example if it slips out, there is a switch of positions,or the slightest distraction, it wont remain hard. I take adderall but don't notice a difference in this when I take it and when I don't. I exercise regularly (4-5x a week) and eat relatively healthy(for a college student). I am stressed a lot and i know that could be a cause of my problems. but does anyone have any ideas? Also is it to early for someone my age (22) to take pills such as viagra or cialis? What are the long term side effects?
