Fluctuating Blood Pressure

With blood pressure in the normal range for most days, there are times that it becomes elevated, like today when it averaged 160/100. This morning it was 117/80 upon awakening. At what point is it necessary to go back on medication? It's more often than not my bp is in a decent range. The few times that it becomes elevated - is this cause for being medicated again? What do you think?

Re: Fluctuating Blood Pressure

mom,

Medicate only if you have a monthlong AVERAGE over 140 or 90.

Re: Fluctuating Blood Pressure

Lola'

I would agree with Lenin.

I would add one other thing though. Speaking from a personal view my BP is much like yours. I would medicate it IF you feel it like I do...in my head....or if you get headaches from it.
Then it might warrant medicating it. I used to get "rushes" when I stood up. If you do not and BP is averaging below 140/90 like Lenin said then I would leave it alone for now.

Re: Fluctuating Blood Pressure

I find that my blood pressure can be quite normal when I lay down, but when I sit up it becomes elevated (in the milldly elevated range--144/94. Is the fluctuation normal?
