I took my first dose last night for hypertension, bp went lower for 2 hours them shot up again. Today it's still high, no difference. Do I just need to be patient? Last bp today was 188/96.
Hi Cork; Yes give it another day, I am guessing you took it at bedtime this way it does not knock you out and you avoid many side effects when you first start it. Anyway if it is still that high Tomorrow gives you doctor or nurse a call and let them know. It is not uncommon to have to mess around with the dose to get you right on the spot. And it is great you have your own blood pressure machine. Which by the way if the doctor did not tell you many offices like you to take your blood pressure machine into the office when you get your pressure tested and they can calibrate it to the one in the office. Then you know it is right on the spot. Please feel free to write anytime for question or if you want to check in You won't find a place with nicer people wanting to help.
