... arm and shoulder is umbairable. I had a stroke 7 months ago Bp 107/69. I am still on what the hospital prescribed
Unfortunately, this is a question to be answered by your PCP or GP doctor. At 107/69 your blood pressure is looking great so the regimen you are on is working. If you are unable to tolerate side effects or whatever, then a discussion with your Dr is in order. It may be that you need to space 2 doses out to keep your therapeutic drug levels constant therefore gaining you better blood pressure control, but you could ask your Dr if taking one dose a day can work for you. He is the only one who can tell you whether or not this is safe in your case. If it is difficult for you to see your primary care doctor, you can try calling on the phone and talk to his medical assistant and have her/him relay a message or you could ask for the Dr to call you and perhaps you can get an answer over the telephone without having to go in. It never hurts to try. I wouldn't recommend that you change the way your medicine is ordered without talking to your healthcare provider first.
