My husband is on lisinopril every day with a usual BP of 125/68. He is tonight having 2 readings over an hour apart of 176/75 & 292/121 & 212/89. He took an extra lisinopril after his 2nd reading & diastolic came down, but systolic went up. He has made a call to his dr. & we are now waiting to hear back. Thx for ur help.
What causes sudden increase In blood pressure, systolic & diastolic?

Anything can push it up. Tension, salt, anger to name a few. If the dr doesn't get back to you soon and his next bp is still that high, take him to the er. They can give him something to drop it faster then Lisinopril.
