the medication just might not be working for you. everyone's body reacts differently to different meds. call your doctor, explain what's happening, and perhaps ask to switch to something different.

Hi
Welcome to HCM
Read your prob, if your blood pressure is not controlled even after taking medicine then you should rule out primary cause of high blood pressure, you should get blood test for renal profile, lipid profile, ECG, n 2D echo. you should change medicine after consulting with your doc. along with it you should take salt restricted diet, start morning walk os isometric exersise.

Im 43 years old, 5 10 and 212lbs. I went for a root canal a few weeks ago and after taking my BP several times (180/120), was told that I need to get my BP under control before they could do anything. I don t currently have insurance but took it seriously and have been seeing a doctor. I m currently on 100MG of Atenolol in the evening and a diuretic in the morning and bought a good upper arm BP machine. I m checking the BP 3 times in the morning, once at lunch and 3 times in the evening and recording the readings. It just doesn t seem to be coming down quick enough. The first week was 50mg of Atenolol (no diuretic) and the second week was upped to 100mg and the diuretic added. It s been a full week and I m not scheduled to go back for another week. I m getting readings in the morning around 150/110, and lunch around 170 /110 and then an hour after the medication in the evening it gets down to around 129/96, but pops right back up in the morning. When I first visited the doctor I was at 220/120, and prior to that I had a reading of 195/154 at a pharmacy machine. Should I give it another week or try to see the doctor sooner?

I have been taking .05 Clozapine twice a day for a year to treat Vertigo which was quite severe 3 years ago. Meclizine did not help but Clozapine does. In addition to that, I take Ambien 2-3 times a week for sleep. I was also drinking 2-3 ounces of Vodka nightly which I have discontinued. My plan is to wean myself off Ambien but am not sure about Clozapine because when I don t take it, my head starts spinning again.

My wife was diagnosed with spinal stenosis and was operated on on 10/12/2012 when the back portions of three of her vertebra were removed and she has been in severe pain ever since. She is about at her wits end. She has had spinal injections, taking Lyrica and now Celebrex and Zolpidem. She can only walk about 100 yards and even that is not without pain. She has to use ice on and off all of her time awake. She is also a diabetic. Don t know what to do.
