I was given medication to lower my blood pressure, which is not high when I take readings at home: 120/80 or 109/78. But, when I get too stressed out my blood pressure can go to 120/90 most of all its low, but my heart rate is high like 90 or sometimes 105.
Should I still take the high blood pressure medication?
You need to discuss stopping medication with your doctor. Be sure to ask your doctor about your heart rate. The same drugs that are used to lower blood pressure can also be used to treat an abnormal heart rhythm. Your level of stress is also of concern.
To manage stress and high blood pressure you should consider Resperate. Resperate is FDA cleared to both lower high blood pressure and stress.
RESPeRATE is the only non-drug therapy cleared by the FDA for the treatment of high blood pressure and the reduction of stress. It is the first medical device that has been clinically proven to lower blood pressure.
