May I get my frustration off my chest today by posting (as it helps me). Sorry in advance.
I feel pretty lonely trying to deal with my HBP. It's so frustrating not being able to see your GP and talk it through.
I'm on Ramipril (Mornings) and Amlodipine (Evenings) and yes they have really helped bring down my BP from 222/112 to pretty normal in the afternoon and evenings but I still have morning hypotension. Sometimes I think I'm getting there and then I'm frustrated by my morning reading. I'm going to send my results to the GP again to ask for his advice (by e consult) this week. I've made changes in exercise and diet and lost a stone in weight but I'm really not sure that the Amlodipine is making much difference over night. Has anyone else had similar frustrations? Can anyone offer any advice or even just a big smile to encourage me to keep battling on. Thank you - I've attached my readings - I really don't like the morning BP's I'm getting. Andrew
