Also, i think the spikes are bcuz i took lisinopril and stopped abruptly. the pharmacist refused to re-fill my script bcuz i had mention an allergic reaction (throat closing). My cardio dr never called me back to tell me what to take instead.
210/96 is unacceptable. Too bad you can't go in and wring that worthless cardio doctor's neck!
What did the nurse tell you to do? You need to get the BP down, down down!
Do you have any idea what is causing the spike? If I eat carbs too late at night, mine will shoot up, but not that high. Or..... if I come into contact with dust at night, or car oil at night, or other chemicals, or certain types of newsprint, mine will also shoot up.
Any clues as to what things might be contributing to your spikes?
