I wouldn't do anything, because "high blood pressure" is a myth. But having said that, then if you really really want to get both your systolic and diastolic down, simply lie down and go to sleep. Your pulse rate will drop like a stone, and your diastolic will go down by a quarter (in deep sleep) and your systolic by roughly a third. It won't do you any good, of course, because as soon as you wake up and start to move round and be active, it will rise again. By how much it will rise depends entirely on how much stress you subject yourself to. The comforting thing is that -despite all the tosh you read on Answers, your medication isn't doing you any good..... P.S. There is a quicker way, but you need a couple of friends there to hold you up when you faint. If you want to know how to do it, post an "Add Details" message.

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?
