... Though it typicially is high even though I am on two different meds to treat it. I was on 300 mgs a day and when I met new OB my BP was 187/117 in his office. He however decreased the toprol to 100mgs a day. My BP only got worse and the feeling of tightening and pain in my chest started. I understand the need to take a little as possible when it comes to meds and pregnancy but at what point do I have a say in the matter. I by NO ME MEANS want to place any risk of birth defects etc on my unborn baby. I just don't know if the rapid and large deduction in the dose is safe for my health which I have to keep if i want the baby to survive too. Please help!!!
