Discussions that mention nadolol

High & Low Blood Pressure board


becca,

I agree 100% with dback...there is NO solution.
I have had my BP well under control for months at a time and I have gone into the doctors office after taking a double dose of thiazide and losartan (my "normal meds") the day before and also added 40 mg. nadolol 80 mg. propranolol + 10 mg. Norvasc AND 10 mg. Valium. On the examining table I STILL get readings like 165/115.

When I'd CRAWL home muttering to myself all the way, I'd get consistent readings like 90/52 with my heart beating OCCASIONALLY:D:D for the next 24 hours (with a three day slump from the nadolol.)

There is NO way to beat this condition (white coat hypertension.)

Next time I'll try the drug OD PLUS 100 push ups and 1/2 hour on a stationary bile at 125 BPM...and go to the office in a CABULANCE!

P.S. He wanted to add Norvasc to the Norvasc I'd already taken, unbeknownst to him. If I added a drug every time that he found "uncontrolled hypertension" in his office, I'd paradoxically actually be ON all the drugs I took to see if "white coat" could be beaten...it CAN'T.


Lenin, I hate to refer to quotes, but just to prove a point here, I have used 2 quotes, combined into one. They are taken out of context, but it didn't alter the point I am trying to make, which is, most sane people would probably believe that you think that this "white coat sydrome" is impossible for anyone to beat, after reading what you wrote.

You can argue the "intent" of your statement, but there would be no argument if you had prefaced your declarations with "for me", or "it has been my experience". I think for most, it is very hard to misinterpret what you were implying or stating.

Most people who post, differentiate between things that apply to them, from things that apply universally to all. This is not tedious to do, and is a basic reguirement for communication, in essence i, vs we, most vs some, all vs part, i cannot vs you cannot, etcetera.

Have a great day. I really enjoy your posts, and have learned a lot from your writing, and for that, I thank you. :)
