When To Come Off High Blood Pressure Meds?
Hi I am 26 and have readings from 118/76-125/80, the last three doctor visits my bp was 130/80, 120/80, and 120/80. When the nurse takes my bp she takes it immediately when i come into the office, and does not hold up my arm , when the doctor comes in he waits 5 minutes before taking my bp and always keeps my arm elevated, right now im on 5mg of norvasc. My question is when does a doctor normally decide for someone to come off bp medications? I am also on 10mg paxil ,but the thing is when i started taking norvasc i noticed i felt very tired, groggy, i always feel off, i can be going for a walk and after about 10-15 minutes of exercise get so tired i feel like just going to sleep. I'm not anemic, all ekg's are normal, lungs are clear. Only issue is my bloodpressure, after I had a panic attack my bloodpressure at that time was 140/80 for over 8 months and my doctor decided to put me on bp meds any insight is appreciated.
