High & Low Blood Pressure board


After the hosipital my potassium went back to 4.0. The dr put me on cozaar 50mg and I have been sending bp reading from home every week taken in the morning and evening. The last 8 weeks the meds have changed every week, 100mg cozaar, Norvasc from 5 ot 10mg in two weeks, toprol XL from 12.5 to 50 in 3 weeks and now Hyzaar 100/12.5 plus toprol 50mg . I also take vytorin 10/20. I just got a prescription for 10meg of potassium. I do go to the gym 4 times a week and seem to be ok. I just can't seem to get my blood pressure down below 135/80 on a consistant basis. i was on adalat 60mg for 3 years and used to tell my previous dr about this cough I would get. He said it wasn't the meds so I changed drs and after telling him he tried different meds and found I was right. i was ok and mu bp was 125/80 for about 6 months taking diruetics until I got sick. i just hope i can get my bp down without taking more meds. My dr said some people take 4 or more and doesn't much about it. I just worry about the long term side affects.
