Is 140/80 considered high blood pressure?

My blood pressure has always been 120/80 and these past 2wks its been 140/80. Could it be the red bulls I drink? Am worried

Re: Is 140/80 considered high blood pressure?

Hi Giggles77,

140/90 is considered borderline hypertension and some doctors will start prescribing meds for it. Yes, those energy drinks can raise blood pressure and also heart rate. If I were you, I would quit drinking them and see if your blood pressure comes down.

Hope this helps,
Missy

Try getting off all caffeine and other stimulants and see if that helps.
