Discussions that mention norvasc

High & Low Blood Pressure board

Hi flowergirl,

Actually, I have seen my dr today. He was very clear that I SHOULD do weight training :D, I told you he's a good understanding doctor ;). I told him that I never go heavy because I have a dislocated shoulder, I told him I will never go beyond 65 pounds. He said that's fine.

Tonight, after I came back and took my 5mg of Norvasc I started to do shoulder and arms workout. I used 14 pounds dumbell (just one dumbell not 2) and I didn't notice any change as before I take the 2.5mg Zebeta.

So I think, for the first winter in so many years, I will do fine in both Blood Pressure and exercise. I used to get readings like 160/110 in winter, now I don't.
Thanks for your great help,
