Good Morning Everyone:

I have had problems with my blood pressure for a few years, seems after my total Hyst. and being on HRT it has gotton worse. Going off HRT is not something I want to do, really don't want to fight the hot flashes, etc...LOL

HBP runs in our family, mom, sisters, grandparents.

The Dr. wants to start me on HBP meds. It can range from 130-88 to 140-90 to 140-90 sometimes 150-90. All depends on when I take it...

Can someone tell me which med is the best without all the side effects...I'm allergic to so much I can't take any abx's allergic to 99.9% of them. I also have lyme and treating that is hard when you are allergic to everything under the sun.

Thank you everyone
Julie

Re: New with Questions

You should probably discuss this with your doctor. he/she could decide which is the best medication to treat your bp.

I know that HRT can increase BP a lot!

Hope you feel better soon.
