personality & high blood pressure

Does untreated high blood pressure make you kinda nuts. I just developed high blood pressure in the last couple of years and I was giving my family such a hard time. I recently started taking medication for it (in the experimental stage) My 18 year old step daughter came to live with us as I was getting HBP and I gave her such a hard time but I feel I've calmed down esspecially since I been taking the prescription

Well, stress can cause high BP but I would have thought it a bit odd that BP meds would destress you - although it would probably depend on what type they are. Beta blockers actually work by slowing the heart rate for example so maybe that is what you are picking up.

Thanks, you made me think. I did have a lot of stress going on at the time my step daughter came and she just added to it. Well she setttled down before she left and a lot of the other things that were bothering me are diminished or gone.

Other people have been giving me a hard time and I took the blame for being so crabby but it's not me. They're putting a lot of pressure on me.
