Sounds like your meds are not doing the job. Mine was high until my doctor put me on Lisinopril. They brought it right down to normal.

See your GP and see if he can perscribe something else that may do a better job.

If your bp is still high and you are taking medication, you should talk to your doctor about adjusting your medicine or trying another kind. Sometimes it takes a while to get the right medicine and dosage.

In addition to that, if you are overweight, losing weight will help bring bp down.

Also exercise (this will help in losing weight) as well as bringing down bp.

Cut out the salt.

Try and de-stress your life.

consult a doc and dun wait!

he'll be able to prescribe both medication and life style for you.

and take his advise...that will help for time being and it takes sheer determination and will power to lead a healthy life style...good luck.

Even though you're taking medication you're still with
Hypertention, maybe! your diet still is the problem, too
much sodium is a problem, plus daily walkng exercises
for 1 hour a day will help tremendously, after a week of
walking you'll start to see the difference in your numbers
also caffein is not is not good elither. DeCaf coffee,
and caffein free sodas are your best bets, but mostly
the exercise will bring it down more.

Exercise, reduce your salt intake, lose 10 pounds or more, try to eliminate any stresses you have in your life, make sure you take your medications as ordered, and follow the Doctors recomendations.

Follow your doctors orders, take you medication, and eat properly.

cut down on salt you should only have 1500-200 mg of salt a day and eat a healthy diet. dont drink and drink lots of water.

Mine was running the exact same way. I am on Lotrel and some beta blocker...anyway. I lost weight, started to work out and ate a real low sodium diet...it is coming down.

Below is the workout routine I've been doing twice a day and walking a couple of miles on the treadmill at night.

My blood pressure was always low, and suddenly it went to 165/110! In addition to the medication, I eat a low sodium diet and exercise. If you are overweight, reducing your weight will help too. Now I'm back to normal.

Watch your diet completely by avoiding high fats, lots of sugar, and of course salt. After a week or two of seriously doing this, you should see a difference, unless there is high stress in your life that you must manage....but do it now, it is important. It is also important to get up , be active and exercise.

The first thing the doctor told my hubby is to lose weight. Use a low fat diet, not Atkins. Good luck.

Your physician has a variety of medications available to treat hypertension. There are diuretics, beta-blockers, Ace Inhibitors, angiotensin antagonists, Calcium channel blockers, alpha-blockers, alpha-beta-blockers, nervous system inhibitors, and vasodilators.

It's fairly common for physicians to need to titrate dosages and to simultaneously prescribe hypertension meds of more than one category.

Restricting sodium is effective for some individuals; it is more likely to be effective for members of some gene pools (such as African-American) than others (such as northern European), but high-salt diets aren't particularly healthy for anyone.

Aerobic exercise is effective for some individuals; in addition to building muscle, aerobic exercise tends to improve blood flow.

Relaxation techniques are effective for some individuals. If if works for you, and you can develop a habit of remaining relaxed, your blood pressure should "develop a habit" of remaining lower. Habits are notoriously difficult to break, though, and I wouldn't stake my life on it - which is *exactly* what you're hoping to do.

You can even reduce your blood pressure, although only temporarily, with bloodletting, or by inhaling nitroglycerine fumes.

But you don't need a quick cheat in order to get past a physical to return to work. You need a *real* fix, because you don't want to stroke out and spend a decade or more imprisoned in a body you can't control.

If you don't like your current physician, go see *another* physician. Only a doctor can prescribe the medication you need - and legally, even a physician reading your question couldn't prescribe for you; he has to actually see you.

I just read in a paper that eating Garlic has a positive effect.

speak up
