Ok. First of all try to be patience and cool everytime. Dont think too much and raise tension for every small things. Then do exercises, Take more vegetables and fruits. Please lessen salted foods. I mean lessen last consistency in ur food. Do not take outside stuff, as it contains salt more and they use it as a preservative agent. Then try to take garlic without fail in ur food. Everyday when u prepare any curries, put 5 to 6 garlics. U can take 3 to 4 garlic cloves everyday to lessen cholesterol, which helps in controlling B.P. And also use olive oil in preparations which really helps u a lot. So its better to follow these before u get into high blood pressure. So then there will be no change of getting BP High. Try it from now. Keep healthy, keep smiling.

I am a 65 year old female who has been on bp medicine for many years. I take Indera120mg and, as of Tuesday, Benicar HCT 20 mg - previously just Benicar 20mg. My bp has been spiking at around 170/101 and then down to around 166/88. How long should it be for relief from the new medicine? Of course, when the bp get higher, I get nervous, and make it worse.

My father has multiple myeloma. he s on his third month of the BiRD treatment right now with Revlmid, biaxin and dexamethazone. his BP has been low this week and tonight has dropped to 101/53. he s weak and can t keep his eyes open and has sever leg cramps. He s been fairly active since on the treatment since this particular regimen can cause blood clots. He s coherent and not dizzy at all. we can t get him to drink much, but we are thinking maybe the low bp is due to dehydration. we can t get ahold of his doctor or nurse right now. should we worry? is there anything we can do to make it come up?
