I have recently been dx with high blood pressure my doc has put me on 20mg of lisinopril daily I also have cml and I take Sprycel for that. My bp is going up and down I have my own monitor right now it is 140/71-90 minutes ago it was 166/80-3 hours ago it was 173/87 at 11:00 this morning it was 193/83 last night 173/80 etc. it jumps all over the place . It's scaring me the way it goes up like that. I couldn't take lopressor so I was weaned off that this is my second day on lisinopril 20mg a day. Is it normal for my bp to jump around like that. Also my left carotid artery is 100% blocked I take plavix,aspirin.& lipitor for that I just had a full cardio workup and it is fine but this bp is a new problem and I don't know how to deal with it when it goes up. I took a xanax and sat quietly until it went down to where it is now. Should the lisinopril stablize it pretty soon?
It took me about 2 weeks for my lisinopril to really get my bp under control. Mine was as high as 200/115! Last check was 129/66. Hang in there, you should be fine! Stressing about it doesn't help! :) Relax and be thankful you got the meds! Worst case is maybe you need to double your dose. Take care and let me know if I can help in any way!
I justed started having those attacks it feels like u busted the back of your head off concrete and I sometimes have a sore neck I have a home blood pressure machine and at my worst head ache happind was 148/139 the point is they gave Anax .5 and lisinopril 10 mg but the only thing I have found that works within five mins of the attack is marijuana Im not for it bit it helps me so much till I'm willing to do it.it has droped my bottom number by thirty numbers in five mins like I said idk how u feel about it but it deff will help better then the DRUGS the Dr gives me. sincerely true believer in natural meds.
I have been on lisinopril, and carvidelol for 3 years. My blood pressure is great NOW. I was at the 160/100 mark before starting medication. Took about six months if fine tuning to get the right numbers. Also I have a friend who smokes a few joints a day for last ten years, has not exercised since he was 22 YO. He is now 39. His blood pressure is always around 100/60. His blood pressure is great, but he can't remember what he did an hour ago. Marijuana is a double edge sword?
