This was a very wise thing for you to do. Imagine how much of a disaster this would have been if your doctor added on more drugs. You would have ended up in the ER. And, then white-coat would have set in again. And, the ER would have thought you were having problems with high BP when in reality, it was low BP. And, they probably would have sent you home with even more drugs. Yes, home monitoring is VERY important.
