Re: Advice about blood pressure pills

Ordinarily 135/80 is not high enough to make taking pills make much sense. The enlarged heart might make a difference; it will likely go back to normal with aggressive bp control. Take a mild pill, not a beta blocker, if you're going to do it. And count on
getting off of it when you hit 200 poinds or so.
