Still fed up with GP's and High Blood Pressure Treatment Rant!!!
My BP is treated by Ramipril and Amlodipine. My BP day time is ok but my morning reading is still a little frustrating! I wan't to get to a stage where I can cut down checking it as much but my GP keeps wanting readings as I am so up and down.. Morning is now 128/85 to 138/90 and daytime varies between 115/73 and 96/66 ! Is the morning still too high and is the daytime lows in the 96/66 too low? Averaged over 24 hours it is ok.
What does everyone else run on? I feel fine - No symptoms. I'm fed up of asking the GP and getting nothing back other than give a bit more time. I am on pretty high doses - 10 mg Ramipril (morning)/10 mg Amlodipine(evening) but then perhaps not surprising as twelve weeks ago I was in hospital with BP of 222/122!
Many thanks all.
