Re: blood pressure

Anxiety can raise your BP. It is best to take it when you are calm and have been at rest for 10 min. or so. If your BP is running high even when calm, your med dose could be bumped up to 10mg by your Dr. after you supply your doc with several bp readings taken over a week or so. I would be careful not to keep taking it once you get anxious, as you will create a vicious cycle that doesn't help you or your BP to stay in control.
