potassium level was 7.0 and dr. in hospital took me off bp meds
A group of blood-pressure medicines called Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors are well known for their link to hyperkalemia (high potassium levels in the blood). Angiotensin Receptor blockers (eg Diovan) can also cause hyperkalaemia but to a lesser extent. Some Beta blockers (eg. Bystolic) and potassium sparing diuretics can also lead to high potassium levels.
Your body needs a delicate balance of potassium to help the heart and other muscles work properly. Too much potassium in your blood can lead to dangerous changes in your heart rhythm.
