Re: Thinking about quitting my Diovan
I'm certainly no expert, but it is my feeling that bp of 140/90 is not very bad, especially if you believe that you might be successful with losing weight if you get off the meds, which are evidently keeping you from being able to lose.
My bp has been fluctuating up and down for a few years now. I have tried numerous bp meds, all had side effects and didn't even seem to keep my bp under control very well. I didn't want to have to go with more and ever stronger meds, so I weaned myself off the meds and finally started getting serious about diet changes, weight loss, and exercise. Since I started on my new 'program', my bp has come down several points. Hopefully, this will continue to work for me.
I wish you luck whatever you decide to do.
