Re: Scared to take High BP medicine, how much will it drop?

Did you tell your doctor that your BP is normal/below normal at home? The spikes at the office are probably due to "white coat hypertension". Happens to a lot of people, me included. Since you're pregnant, I would be very careful taking any meds. Please discuss this with your doctor again. Is this your OB/Gyn doctor? Take care
