Re: medicine or not?

Hi Vince!

In my humble opinion, I'd try diet and exercise first. But, I'm not a doctor. My b/p was hovering around your area for quite a while. However, when we did decide to treat it we started with a mild duretic before we did anything stronger. I found cutting back on salt and caffeine lowered my bottom number by a couple of points. Good luck!
