should i be worried?

i have had high blood pressure readings in the past but recently my dr prescribed 20mg twice daily of propranolol after finding readings as high as 200/110 im only 42 female in great shape and probably underweight for my height 5'6" 115lbs. i have been on this medicine now for almost a month and today my reading was 135/110 i am getting concerned as im a single parent and dont want to have a stroke or heart attack so young!!!! should i be worried?

Re: should i be worried?

Hi Burden....I was put on Altace, first 2.5 mgs for 3 weeks, then 5 mgs. and it took almost 2 months for mine to get down to a normal level. I was very concerned, but the dr. wasn't, said it does take some folks longer than others. It has been almost 4 months, and now I get very low readings, like 104-127/69-78. If that bottom number keeps staying high, I would call the dr. just to be on the safe side, as U might need an adjustment. Good luck! JJ
