Re: My BP Numbers. Lexapro, Androgel, too much Coffee Causing my High BP?

Just to post an update, for the last three days my BP has been stable at 125/85 and all reading have been pretty consistent at that number. On 10mg of Lexapro, 2 pumps androgel.
Im really perplexed as to why it was so high a couple weeks ago and now its normal???

The ONLY thing I can think of is the supplements. I began taking 200mg of COQ10 every day, Garlic Tabs, Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium. PErhaps there was some deficiency there?
Either that or the Lexapro has kicked in and calmed me, meaning my high BP was caused by anxiety.
2 days ago I dropped down to 5mg from 10mg of Lexapro. Lets see what happens with that lower dose.

Anyone have any ideas?
