Re: Proper dosage of Requip?
What I did may not work for everyone, but I stopped taking medication only to see my pressures drop about 20 points into the prehypertension stage...diet changes brought it down into the normal stage. Diet changes work for everyone, some more than others...but you really need to educate yourself....it takes some work at first.
The government reports suggest there is nothing at this point in time to support the idea that hypertension is inherited. In my opinion, "heredity" is an excuse for doctors to prescribe meds and keep their practices going instead of educating a patient as to how to lower blood pressure. If "heredity" was an issue, people in other countries and other cultures would experience hypertension, but they don't...only countries and cultures with our diets. But you can read the government reports/studies yourself... I've done a lot of posting regarding blood pressure on the boards over there.
Well, the storm is over but more importantly, the loud rude drunks across the street have gone inside their house so I perhaps can go back to bed and to sleep.
My pressures were 200/100 when first put on medication...they're now in the normal range.
