... Hello kari,
135/90 is not bad but 130/85 is a lot better and 120/80 is perfect. Have you tried supplements to reduce your blood pressure? I have found that Magneium, Flaxseed and Vitamin C are helping me a lot. Also salt plays a big part of the high blood pressure game for many people. For me, I consume less than 500 mg of sodium daily and I'm happy that way. If I can keep... (3 replies)

I have a question; hope someone here may explain to me what is going on.
All my life I lived with very low BP, many times it was so low I was admitted to the hospital to find out what is going on.

... Check with your DR. I've never taken that drug, but if it were me, I'd take daily readings asap and if it's staying that high I'd stop that drug (ask DR how).
If it were me, I'd go back to no drugs for 2 weeks to get it all out. Then continue daily readings and find my "without drugs" averages, which you allready know as 135/95 range.
Start daily readings to get an... (7 replies)

I used to take my blood pressure about twice a day, once first thing in the morning, then again just before going to bed late at night.
