Discussions that mention norvasc

High & Low Blood Pressure board

I'm 70 years and have just had a TIA and my GP has me on Diovan 160mg daily and just started Norvasc 2.5mg daily. My BP is fairly constant around 130/65 but rises each day between the hours of 2pm and 5pm where it goes to 165/70 my pulse hardly varies and stays around 65. During that period I have nothing to eat or drink and am sitting watching tv just relaxing. I cannot figure nor can my GP as to what is causing the afternoon rise. Any help is appreciated---thanks Marilyn
