Re: Early hyper tension -- any suggestions

I agree with you Moxie. My doc. would just tell me that my #'s are fine. I will go the specialist on my own freewill on 2/10, because my insurance covers it. Yes, I felt tired today. Pulse is around 52 now. That is after 2 cups of coffee & a sprite. Atenolol at 100 MGS & Lotrel at 5/20 is too much for someone of my size 5' 11" 150. I have switched docs. 3 times onclou9 in the past 2 years. I am only 34. The docs. don't know anything about B/P from my own experience. I agree with Moxie. You have to take your health into your own hands sometimes. I have had enough. I will try the specialist. If he won't wean me off, then I am weaning myself off. I have anxiety that caused the HBP (isolated) at the doc. Meds. have made it much much worse. 3 docs., no results.
