uncontrolled bp is death warmed over: 215/115....

straight norvasc 10 mg plus hctz i'm maybe 155/95 or so...

doc put me on benicar hct 40/25 and norvasc 10 mg....135 to 143 / 80-85 or so...doc said that is still high but modify diet and work out more etc...this for a change is a good doc....advocates supplements and stuff for overall health and cleared all the supps i take...he said if i stay at this rate it may be what my body needs to be at....i was on some stuff that made me feel i had the flu ; lotrel...that was it...just awful....

well, now about four months ago i'm static at this 135-140 / 80-90 or so range and i want to exercise more & help things along w weight loss w a good quality diet pill that does not have too much caffeine or certainly ephedra...(which isn't sold as a diet pill any longer, rather it is sold as an asthma supp)....

i started taking this diet pill and if i did anything moderately exertive i felt light-headed etc....i read the sheet on the pills and they mentioned that they could make bp go down...yeah right, i said....

well, i went to my local superstore and did the bp machine and two days in a row the bp was in a range i've never experienced. i was at 112/64 and 116/64 the next....the entire time i was on the supplement it was at that range...i got accustomed to the light-headedness and just had slight fatigue...i exercised and dropped a pant size...

i cycled off the pills after two months and after being off them for two wks i checked and i was 143/86....still taking the norvasc and benicar hct....

i just started the diet pills again three wks ago...checked bp this past weekend and it was 118/68 i think it was....
Vladimir Ilych "Lenin",

there is caffeine in the pill but no, none of the other ingredients are in it...

pill is Hot Rox by Biotest....

they don't advertise this as a blood pressure lowering item and I'm not recommending this... this is merely an observation....today's bp 119/65.

uncontrolled my bp is fatal....210+/110+; with norvasc 10mgs & benicar 40/25, 140+/80+...take the diet pills and i'm at the latter paragraph.

for what it's worth.....
