It's the only BP med. I take.
Thanks for the reply. I'm just paranoid because my blood pressure only seems to spike when I am anxious. Normally its in the 120-135/80-90 range. I'm afraid this is going to lower it too much. I'm also stressed over the fact that I have read that Novasc can cause arrhythmia and even heart attack. I have 2 small children and I do not need to have anything like that happen to me.
