Currently on Bisoprolol 10 mg and Digoxin, with no problems. Had a blood test yesterday and nurse also took BP, which was high. I take my BP at home and it was fine that morning and has been for a very long time. I am a repeat offender white coat syndrome sufferer, so no great surprise.
In about 10 days I have to see the doctor for a medication review. BP normal again this morning but I can pretty much guarantee that it will be high again when I see the doctor. I am trying to second guess what might happen - always a bad idea but forewarned is forearmed!
Assuming that she either recommends BP medication straightaway or a 7 day BP monitor, which I might or might not accept: is anyone else here on betablockers and BP medication and, if so, which medications do you take? Do you also take a diuretic and/or statins?
I'm also seeing the cardiologist in about 5 weeks. Feeling that I could potentially be overmedicated, looking for some advice (please no advice about magnesium, potassium or other supplements!) Looking at advice on BP on NHS website, I have marginal room for improvement on weight and possible salt intake but I don't think either of these are significant for me. Exercise, other dietary aspects are fine.
