... fluctuates. Have white coat apprehension so at his office it might be 160/80 but at home goes down a lot. He says the benicar is working because my bp drops. I'm still concerned though. Wondering what any of you think. Should I cut one in half and take 30mg a day?
Your doctor knows what med and dose you should take for your hypertension. When was the last time you had your blood check for cholesterol? My bp went up to 150/90 then drop to 90/60 this week while on my med. From the result of my blood chem, my cholesterol ldl was high. My doctor gave me a different med. He is also considering premenopausal stage.Are you into a lot of stress lately? Sudden change in mood and temperament can affect our bp.Hope this will help.
