Re: Early hyper tension -- any suggestions

It's all nonsense imo. I feel great today, except that I felt lethargic & tired. Went to take my b/p & it was 112/64 with a pulse of 49.... gotta love 100 MGS of Atenolol & 5/20 of Lotrel. I asked my doc. if I could wean last time & he was very wishy-washy. No wonder I feel so tired. My body has been used to a B/P of 137/74 with a pulse in the 70's for my entire life. Now at 34, I'm getting readings that are 23 points lower on the systolic & 7-10 points lower on the diastolic. I am over-medicated. No doubt. A pulse rate of 49.... give me a break. No wonder I feel so tired. I am 5' 11" 151. My body can't take this much medication. I have anxiety that causes HBP at the doc. Why can't they get that through their thick skulls and prescribe anxiety meds. 1st, instead of prescribing B/P meds. 1st??? A pulse rate of 49.... Niiiiice.
