Question by str8_30457: blood pressure?
I take procadia 60mg,lotensin 40 mg, water pill, and a pill to relax me at night.My BP still shoots up real high at work even when I am having fun and laughing.Can anyone help me please.I get sent home from work because of my BP but its still an occurrance at work.The doctor will give me a pill to melt under my tongue to bring it back down but refuses to give me a prescription that I can take at work to keep from missing work.My dad died at 48 of a heart attack and my brother died at the age of 41 from an anuysism.I am 43 now and scared because I cannot seem to keep my BP under control.It just seems to go up and down on me even when I am not stressed out.

Sounds like time to get a new doctor… uncontrolled bp, with your family history says that you need a new work up on your physical condition..

    High blood pressure can be caused by stress, but eating high salt content and a lack of physical activity can lead to high blood pressure. There are a few things you need to do. Minimize your salt intake and exercise daily. Even taking a brisk walk will help. Eat more veggies! There a few natural things that can help (notice I said can). A high fiber diet can also thin your blood to make it flow easier. Oatmeal, whole grains, high fiber fruits and veggies, garlic, and fish oil are a few natural ways. There are others but these come to my mind. If you do not want to die of a heart attack or stroke, please take care of yourself now. Doctors try to keep you off prescription because of the possible side effects. There are plenty of natural ways of lowering it if it’s still controllable.

    Try these two supplements since these are natural and great supplements:

    NutriliteВ® Garlic Heart Care Formula:

    NutriliteВ® Ocean EssentialsВ® Heart Health:

    But you need to also exercise and eat better. These won’t solve any diseases you may have, but it may help thin your blood and lower your blood pressure. Contact me if you have any questions.

    Given your family history for HBP and early death from heart attacks,etc. I would find a new MD that will take your family history seriously and provide as much medications that will get you under control etc. Do you have a “stressful” job ? That too should be taken into account when dealing with your condition. I wish you good luck in finding a new MD,please do so ASAP,Your life depends on it ! Take care. SW FNP
