Re: effects of valium with hypertension
Valium & most other anti-anxiety meds provide a zombie like state where you're not as alert and impairs your learning capabilities. /doc told me
If you're asking what else I could do to lower my blood pressure? Then the first step is to exercise & go on the DASH diet (lower your sodium intake).
There's tons of over the counter supplements out there that lowers Blood Pressure, but again we don't really know the side effects or how they might interact with our other meds. Some supplements work for others while others, it doesn't. Trial & Error basically.
CoQ10 as small as 60mg 2x a day, can lower BP up to 20/10 or even more in a couple of weeks/months. Celery seed extract can also lower BP but it depends on the individual. There were drastic drops for some and for others, barely anything. It works as a natural diuretic & and relaxes your blood vessals.
