... pressure during a spike. My latest BP regimen is .3mg Clonidine at night she took me off the 50 mg Metropolol I was taking in the morning but then my heart rate started staying high so starting this week I put it back and my heart rate is much better but I had a spike today 170 the high for systolic and 116 the high for diastolic this always freaks me out and I find myself checking my BP like every 10 minutes just wondering if anyone else got freaked out like that
